Just like jeans, T-Shirts are essential wardrobe items that every person needs to own.
They’re comfortable, casual and versatile, so you really need to have a few t-shirts that fit well and make you look great. Just like any other garments, T-Shirts need to fit well. Even a very expensive designer T-Shirts will look terrible if it doesn’t fit properly.
On one side of the spectrum, you have ill-fitting, worn out tees with obnoxious graphics on them, which make even the most handsome men and women among us like sloppy teenagers. On the other side, you have fitted, high quality t-shirts in versatile, solid colors or tasteful patterns. These are universally flattering, regardless of age, skin tone or body type.
Needless to say, we are falling in the latter.
Barron 160g Crew Neck T-Shirt with a generous cut (loose fit)
The Barron T-Shirt quality is of a very high standard and the 160 g Crew Neck of a generous cut (loose fit). Since t-shirt sizes from different manufacturers are not always the same, it is very important to choose the correct size by using the guidelines below to determine what your Bully Love™ T-Shirt size must be. Buying online, it is important to make the correct decision before ordering your T-Shirt. Since the T-Shirt is off a loose fit the “normal” sizes for women may differ, perhaps a smaller fit will be best, but make sure to take your measurements.
The size chart and measurement areas are displayed below and with every product in the Shopping pages.
There are four important measurement aspects to take in to consideration: shoulders, sleeves, torso and length.
This is the most important measurement. You want to make sure the shoulders aren’t too wide. The best way to do this is find where your shoulder ends and your arm begins, and make sure the shoulder seam doesn’t go too far past that. It’s okay if it doesn’t land directly on top of your shoulder bone, but make sure the seams aren’t hanging down on your upper arm; this is a clear sign that the T-Shirts is too big for you.
You want to pay attention to both length and width. Your sleeves should end about halfway between your armpit and elbow. If you feel the need to take out the measuring tape, we have added the sleeve lengths too. Just make sure the sleeves aren’t too close to your elbow (which will make your arms look shorter). The sleeves should fit closely around your arm without being tight or restrictive. The Crew Neck T-Shirt has a bit longer sleeves than normal.
The torso is made up of the chest, the stomach and the hips. You’re aiming for a fitted look – not too tight but not too loose. If you see tension lines, the T-Shirts is too tight. You should be able to pinch about 2-3 inches of fabric on either side of your torso. Any more than that, and the T-Shirts might be too loose. If you can’t pinch at least an inch of fabric on either side, it may be too tight.
The most problematic part of T-Shirts for short people are the length. Your shirt should go about two inches past your waistband (or the bottom of your belt), and it should end right around mid-fly. If it goes all the way to the bottom of your fly, it’s too long and will make you look shorter.
Unfortunately, we are not of the same length and for some the T-Shirts may be a bit short and for other a bit long. That is why we have added the measurements so you can decide which is best for you.
A last note
If the T-Shirts is too long, you can always get it hemmed, but with a tailor who can handle knits, such as wedding dress alteration places.
If the sleeves are too long, you can roll them up (cuff them) once or twice.
But if the shoulders are too wide, you can’t fix that, so it’s best practice to choose the T-Shirts which fits properly over the shoulders.
Well, this is a difficult one. There is no clear-cut suggestion, there will be some trade-off decisions to be made.
A final note…
You may find that one measurement is correct then another not. The best option is to find a middle way and make alterations if need be. But in most cases you will find that the T-Shirts is a comfortable fit without looking sloppy.
