    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.
