Hi there guys, first post here.. I wanted to get some feedback about a issue I have. First off, I have a L Express MK2 Fitted that I purchased off eBay a few months ago. At the time, I had never tried on a actual shirt from Express (big mistake,) but I just liked the look of the shirt and they no longer carried the particular color in stores.. I figured a XL would be huge and a M would be too tight, so I went with a L. I get the package and try it on, it is huge on me, the sleeves must be a 34/35 and the collar is a 16 or so.. Now Im stuck with a shirt that is pretty much unwearable, probably cant sell it, even though Ive only tried it on and it still has all the tags. Since then, I have tried on a M in store and it has a pretty perfect fit, go figure. Oh, for my height and weight, I am about 5'8 and 188 pounds. Here are a few pictures of the shirt in question..I apologize for the crappy pictures, but I just snapped them real quick. I know Express isnt the best quality stuff out there, but I really like the design of the shirt, at least looking at it on other people.. So guys, what do I do? Have it tailored and the sleeves shortened or shelf it for good? I live in Los Angeles, so if I do decide to have it tailored, it will be done locally. Also, I intended to wear this with a tie, but all the ties I have are old and HUGE, probably like 3 and 1/2 at their widest.. I figured a 2 and 1/2 would be proper, but I havent made any purchases yet.
