Got a nice surprise in the mail today - Page 2

post #16 of 30
That is awsome fabric! That is exactly how I like my shirts to fit.

I ordered mine sometime at the end of March or something like that so I should get it as a nice Christmas present.

Looks good overall and I really like the texture and button shape. I will say it looks just a bit tight in the shoulders and chest.

well within the acceptable range, i would say. if anything, i would say it's loose in the waist.

A suggestion: since its a bit snug in the armpit area, wear a fitted v-neck tee underneath. Since you exercise more, chances are you drink more water, and perspire more. Due to the hot weather, there may be some unsightly yellow stains in the works.

I have 2 CT shirts that are snug in that area (due to my lats) and they turned grossly yellow - good luck!

It's just what I happened to be wearing that day, normally I wouldn't make such a boring choice as a white shirt and khakis. For my next order, I might ask for 1.5" extra in the chest, and 1" less in the waist. I have a 9" drop - 40" chest and 31" waist, with a 17" neck, so this shirt still fits me better than anything else I can find.

Very nice improvement from the first one you ordered a while back... and it doesn't even have the garish logo!

Stop using antiperspirant. I use mitchum deodorant or tom's and have no unsightly yellow pit stains (no undershirts here). It also helps to shave your pits.

vman (if that is your real name), the shirt looks great. my compliments on your choice of length for the collar points. i also like my collar points on the long side, just not so long as to look '70s.

i also have my shirts made without a front placket. it's an overall cleaner, and in my opinion, more elegant, look.

THREAD HIJACK !

- Try the Aubrey Organics pine spray deodorant - smells awesome and isn't an anti-perspirant hence no yucky aluminum residues. My last gf always said I had the nicest smelling armpits - must be the pheremones - haha Oh and don't completely shave the pit area - you need a little (and I mean little) bit of hair to trap the natural BO that drives women wild - which is strongest in this area and your pubic area too.

BACK TO REGULAR SCHEDULED PROGRAMMING !

Sorry about the threadjack, but I've accepted I will sweat more throughout the day - I drink about 8-11 liters of water a day. In the hot weather, it likes to show up more.

8-11 LITERS? That's quite a lot of water...

8 liters is 16 bottles of water and 11 liters is 22, you drink most of a 24 pack of water a day? Why?

I have a very large stomach. I started at 365lbs, now at 220. I'm used to a certain amount of water throughout the course of my day.

1 Gallon at the gym while working out. I drink about 36oz at once.

What a beautiful shirt. Just curious, why does it take so long for Jantzen orders to be delivered?

Confuscius, I think I may have said this before, but that is the best avatar I've ever seen.

I remember a poll over at BB forums on daily water usage; apparently downing ~3 gallon per day is pretty common among bodybuilders
