AA Long Sleeve Fine Jersey vs. Baby Rib Fitted


Oct 7, 2006

First time poster, this forum seems really cool. I am a big fan of American Apparel because a.) I am a poor college student b.) they are not supported by sweat shops, and c.) they fit me very well. I currently own a polo by them (fine jersey leisure short sleeve, I think...I bought it in one of their stores) and am needing to winterize my wardrobe. I like the fit of the shirt in the pic posted below. Do you think I would be better off in a Baby Rib Fitted or a Fine Jersey long sleeve? I don't want the shirt to be REALLY REALLY tight, because I have slight love handles, but I don't think this would be an issue for either one. I am also a fan of the 3/4 pulled-up-sleeves look. Again, I kind of like the shirt to be sort of tight.

Also, the shirt in the pic is a size medium...would I be fine getting a medium sized long sleeve shirt? There is no AA store around me to try stuff on (I live in Kansas), so the internet is my only option.

Also, does anyone know a cheap place to buy AA clothes? This site seemed a little cheaper than the AA online store, but does anyone else have recommendations?

Thanks a lot!

Well, the 4407 (rib knit) is a bit more fitted than the basic 2007, although the fact that it's a rib knit means it has a bit more give and stretch to it. But the 4407 is a little bit thicker as well, so it really depends on what you want.

Send me a PM if you want cheaper AA stuff, I'm a wholeseller and I'm cheaper than yque.
