ok i have a vague understanding that thos pink is not held in the highest regard, but hear me out.

i picked up a Pink shirt (blue with thin white vertical stripes) for a song at the thrift store...everything fits except the sleeves are way too short. a little wear around the collar, as well.

i'm not a fan of short sleeved shirts. a little too 'barney miller' for my taste.

- make some kind of avante garde/punk statement? (sleeveless? sew on new sleeves in contrasting color?)

- cannibalize the fabric? (pillows? patches? jacket lining? xmas stockings?)

- eBay?

anyone have any favorite uses for shirts of such condition?

Yep, roll the sleeves up and wear it untucked.

sounds good, although i will need to get the tails shortened...it would look like a nightshirt as-is.
