I usually wear long sleeve tees to fix this problem but thats unpractical living in northern australia.

I think what i need is a tee with sleeves that cling to my arms so they dont flair out the sides.

Does anyone have any reccomendations?

+1 to you for using the search function

i can almost guarantee you that you'd be happy with alternative apparel size S's.

Is this a 'definitive guide to t-shirts', or for t-shirts that fit your build? Just an inquiring mind wanting to know...

Fuel Star makes some great ones, I've heard about 10-12 times.

For those of you who say that AA shrinks a lot, have you tried just stretching them out after you put them on? (bring your arms into the chest/shoulder area, and then pulling)

Though, i'm having the same trouble as captainimo. I'm 5'6" and 145 lbs, and I work out quite a bit (though not to gain mass in asmuch as maintain what I have). For someone my height, I have fairly broad shoulders (45 in) a medium sized chest (38 in) and a fairly narrow waist (30.5 in). I do want to show off a bit of definition (because i'm young and fit and vain like that ), but not meathead levels of tight (My friends make fun of me and tell me that if i wasn't such a hipster i'd be a guido)

For reference: black AA small (especially pre-stretch, but still, even after) makes me look like a bouncer/bartender on the chest but then sort of piles up a bit at the waist (made for taller, thinner people i supoose). Uniqlo Smalls are nice (i like the shallow v's), but the sleeves are a bit short. Hanes smalls are nice, but too see-through and light for my taste.

What would you recommend? I'm planning on heading to the mall to try various mall brand fits--gonna brave hollister and A&F to see what "muscle fit" is like (provided i can find blank shirts), then try UO for BDG and The Gap for its athletic fits, but I'd be willing to try out a bunch of places if it means the perfect t-shirt.

Uniqlo tees are not really slim. I'm 5'8 200 (34 inch waist, work out, don't really look fat but colould lose some) so they work great for me. 10.50 for 3. I get size medium.

I remember trying on a Uniqlo tee (medium) and it fitting pretty well. I passed, though, since it was one of those fits that would've been too tight with any shrinkage. FWIW, I'm 5'10" and was probably closer to 180 at the time. I remember the arms feeling pretty tight.

Check a craft store. Michael's, Ben Franklin, or whatever they're called in your area. Michael's carries Jerzee Heavyweights and Ben Franklin has Gilden Heavyweights. Mediums of both brands fit me great. I'm 6'1, 145 lbs.

Grabbed a couple of size 4 James Perse supima cotton tees in the recent Gilt sale. They are wearable and super comfortable, but still slightly too big for my taste. I am thinking that a warm wash and hot machine dry will shrink them. Anyone have experience with Perse shrinkage?

Anyone know how much of a difference there is between the jcrew slimfit tee and the regular fit? I was under the impressions that the regular fits were already pretty slim.

same. fit is spot on for my body type

Any suggestions for t-shirts that are: shallow v neck long sleeve high quality you would think they would be easy to find but that isn't the case.

I'm in love with Express tee's. I got a bunch for xmas and they are constructed so well and fit my frame perfectly; I'm about 6'0 and 160 lbs....they shrink just a tad in the wash but they are 5% spandex? I think and are stretchy and very comfy.

I don't think I am going to any other brand now for tees..

Any suggestions for good quality long sleeve crewneck tee's? I've tried Splendid tees and they're great, but I'm after some more. Something better quality than american/alternative apparel too.
