These photos are almost useless. You need to lower the sleeves and tuck the shirt into a pair of trousers to see proper fit. You will get much more help when you do so.

I'm planning to wear it like that (with shorts and sleeves rolled) but I'll try to get better pictures tomorrow.

Therefore the first impression you are making is "I don't care how my shirt fits" so why waste money in trying to get it to (not) fit better?

Well, I'm going to be a college student next year so I'm going for the casual look. I don't really see anything wrong with wearing it like that to be honest.

And I stated before, I'm short so it's kind of hard to get a nice fitting shirt. The shirt above is XS.

I think a short sleeve polo would look better with those shorts.

Well, since no one else seems to want to be helpful... I'll suggest that you get it taken in around the waist at the tailor. The sleeves look a little wide too, and they might need to be narrowed a bit anyways when the tailor slims the shirt down a bit. The length looks fine untucked, I'd only get it shortened by an inch or two if it bothers you.

But honestly, if you plan on wearing it casually at college, just wear it as it is unless something really stands out to you, it's not bad at all for the look you are going for.

Wash the shirt a few times to gauge the fit and then post pics.
