    Lots of t-shirt talk.. my go-to brand is Lands' End, specifically the "super-t with pocket." Great fit for someone who lifts, decent quality, and they're only about 15 bucks a pop.


    17" arms here, far from giant, but I wash all my t-shirts on cold and hang dry to minimize shrinkage, and have to gently stretch the sleeves/armholes when first putting the shirt on. Simple and effective.

    Am I the only one who likes it when t shirts are tight at the arm? Why the fuck do y'all lift if not to look superior to all the DYEL dudes out there? the best is pec drape though. when a t is visibly protruding at titty level, then billows back in below. ideal t shirt has fitted sleeves and good pec drape. don't even care if people think i'ma douche, cause I know i'm not.

    maybe a little

    'Cause if you're not DYEL, you'll look big even in a t-shirt that fits properly. And since I'm in t-shirts quite a bit in the summer, I'll gladly opt for comfort and not looking like a douche.

    Also, let me guess: you've been lifting for a year, maybe two? That's about how long the hyper-alpha-macho-bro phase typically lasts, when you mistakenly think you're bigger than everyone and constantly feel the need to show it, by doing things like wearing overly tight shirts.

    I'm not talking about about t shirts that are tight, i'm talking ones that are fitted. This is styleforum, no? An added benefit of a well fitting t shirt is that it accentuates your physique.

    As far as your last point, not true at all. I'm aware that i'm really not that big in the grand scheme of things, but at the same time, i've put in work for the body I do have, and I don't think there is anything wrong in trying to flaunt it a bit.

    Someone should post that "clothing proportions for jacked guys" that Charly made a while back, because I look bigger in normal /relaxed cut tee's just like that post illustrates.

    "Tight", "fitted"... now we're in the realm of subjectivity. Conversely, I'm not talking about some giant, sloppy t-shirt with sleeves past the elbows. I like a "well fitting" t-shirt, too. But I'm not a fan of small, tight sleeves that are barely long enough to cover the delts.

    Marks shirt looks baggy as fuck to me. At the doctor today they had to get a bigger sleeve to measure my blood pressure, I assume this gives me the right to wear stringers this summer?

    Made the most anabolic coffee ever because I stopped taking pwo crap. It's coffee, 20 grams bcaas, a tablespoon coconut oil and a pack of stevia.

    17 is huge compared to normal people. And yes as far as chapter I have bought pants and shirts and I like them a lot. I also find the airism tees stretch to accommodate pretty well

    I know what you mean. My tees are cut with a tight arm and shoulders, fairly fitted chest/back, but roomy but not billowly mid/waist. Perfect.


    Yep!!!



    I went for 665. Got it without much problem.

    I think @Krish the Fish is buying some so he can give you a review.
