    Do you think shirt is complimenting my short, slim frame?
    No, doesn't complement it at all.

    I plan to wear this on the street, in class, and the occasional party. Do you think shirt is complimenting my short, slim frame? I'll be wearing them with straight leg dark blue jeans dark blue jeans.

    Speaking for the group, I think we all answered "no" before actually clicking on the link.

    To the OP:

    You are young and seem to mean well, so lose this t-shirt. You should dress for two reasons: 1. for yourself. 2. to impress hot chicks. This does not qualify.

    Read here for a while and you will find a few things that will give you better ideas. Better yet, head on over to the Street Wear forum and get some ideas there, too.

    LV makes plenty of nice plain tees for the people who don't mind spending $200-400 on cotton short-sleeve items. The ones with all-over monograms and/or "LOUIS VUITTON" in 5 places are never the real deal. (This rule does not apply to outerwear or accessories, sadly.)

    Welcome to SF, jjosephs. Unfortunately, the folks on this forum will not be particularly receptive to the style that you are seeking to project with that t-shirt. Folks on this forum prefer talking about suits, ties, dress shoes, and custom tailoring. Hence the slew of offhanded remarks. As others have suggested, you could try the Streetwear & Denim section of this forum; however, I am unsure if you will have much better luck there, either. That said, I am not sure that t-shirt is particularly flattering. I am not a fan of the color, and the pattern. Its fit is reasonable, I suppose, given that it is a t-shirt. But there's not a whole lot I can say outside of that. However, if you are interested in improving your sense of classic style, you are more than welcome to stick around here. Once you get over the odd sense of humor (and snark), you will find that it is an enjoyable place with a lot to offer!

    I added a new pic at the end? Any better?

    Better...

    Go to the Streetwear forum, they will be more able than us to give you advice on that particular style.

    I try to stay away from large wording because they make my 5'4" 110 lbs frame look even smaller.

    Sounds like Dressing The Man: Street Edition

    I think the fit is okay, but it is not great. It is somewhat baggy, but it is still not that bad.

    However, I don't know what part of the world you live. Currently, I live in the third world country. Over here, when I see people wearing clothes and accessories which has the slogan of the brand name all over their wardrobe, I immediately think that they are fakes simply because a lot of the brands that I see today, mostly high end, tend me to more conservative. I would use Zegna as an example.
