So I got my Niche Dahlia tee today, very nice shirt and I like it. I got size XL and unfortunately, it is way too big for me. It is beyond the acceptable level of room, I should have taken size L.

Greg, not sure how you are taking XXL and not swimming in them?!

If anybody wants a size XL Dahlia, let me know. Looks like it is already sold out on the store website.
I can't speak for what you consider as "acceptable level of room" for a tee, but I love XXL on me and wouldn't want a smaller size, even if I can technically fit in it. There are things that are better loose and I put those tees in that category (along with camp shirts, linen pants, summer knitwear, etc....).

The flower seed tees just look better to me a bit oversized.

Sometimes I find that if you are patient and let the excitement build for a while it's that much more satisfying when you finally release it.
That's what sh..........

Agree that they look better a bit oversized but mine looks like I am a kid who stole his dads shirt in it. Sleeves are literally to my elbows, I was planning to get other flowers but I don’t think I would want to wear it that big. I ordered both L and XL originally and cancelled the L, should have kept them both to get the sizing right. Who would have thought it would be so much hassle to get a right size T shirt.😅

Im pretty sure the sleeves are long no matter what size you get. They go to my elbows as well. Is that you main issue with the fit?

In addition to sleeves, it’s long and quite baggy. I am thinking size L would be a better fit.

That feeling when the baby just went down and it’s still light and warm outside at 7:30

this may be too niche a move, but maybe consider just cutting the hem to the length you want. i like the little roll that most tees do once you cut them (n.b. you'll lose another little bit of length that way). in fact, a seed tee specifically with a cut hem sounds pretty cool.

I hemmed mine up about 1.5” a few years back and was significantly happier with it.

So if anyone has the Niche Torrance Flower Lace shirt in L or XL and thinking of letting it go, shot me a PM.
