    Fits like a globe?

    Uncomfortable = bad, always.


    uncomfortable = relativity

    Yeah I guest the shirt is one size too small.
    I hope the south willard is easy on exchange.


    you guest? so you borrowed the shirt from someone you're staying with?


    anyway, the store should exchange it no prob unless you stretched it out irreparably with your monster moobs.

    Can you sit down in that shirt? If you can't, it's too small.

    how can you return that with clear conscious? it has obviously been worn even if just around your house. i can see serious arm creases on the inner elbows...

    Same wear it would have had if he had tried it on in SW's dressing room.

    ^did you even look at his pics? i'm sorry, but you don't get arm honeycombs just from trying on a shirt. you get them from wearing a shirt for an extended period.

    i partially agree with you here. it's not the creases that concern me (which can be steamed out easily by the store), but that the thing looks as if it'd burst from the pictures. i think if the tags are still attached (if any) and that the shirt is without any sort of warping (and that there aren't any rips, stains or funny smells) you have a good chance of returning. i do wonder, though, about the extent that this shirt has been "worn" for such a small amount of time... good luck.

    or rolling up the sleeves, or bending your elbows, or squeezing into shirts. BoO's A-body cut isn't particularly forgiving to those with any arm muscle definition.

    Yea, that looks a bit too snug and pulling too much for my tastes. My size small still drapes a little bit. Here's a reference

    That looks really good. How big is that pit-to-pit though? I saw a shirt on ebay I was going to pick up but the pit-to-pit was 17 1/2 which would be ridiculously teeny on me. That's what I wear in my shoulder-to-shoulder.

    The size smalls are pretty small. Probably more of an 18" pit to pit rather than a 17 though. As drizzt said, they're real slim in the arms so if you work out your arms a fair amount, it might be a bit tight.

    Dude, are you high? How long is 'an extended period'? Unless the guy is covered in Crisco, wearing the shirt for long enough to take these photographs is not going to make it impossible to return.

    Too bad he deleted his pics, now his degree of wrinkledness will never be exactly known. Personally, i'm a fan of wrinkles.

    I am also interested as to how wrinkled is too wrinkled and how tight the shirt was.

    What's the verdict on this? Ignore the AIDS cheeks, I'm just sucking on some boba. [​IMG]
