Tale of the tape
on June 7, 2014
I wished I had something more to go by when I was online ordering this shirt, only read a few reviews telling me it was too small and they gave only their height and weight, what good is that, they could be pear shape and the shirt just did not fit them at the bottom... Well here is my tale of the tape of this shirt on my body type....I ordered the XXL (Asian size).... My chest size is 46 in, the shirt size ( laying flat measured with a measuring tape) at the chest from arm pit to arm pit was 21in x2= 42in,, .....my arms at the biceps are 16in, the shirt size at the arms, in the sleeves are 7in x2= 14in.. My neck size is 16.5in, shirt size is the same, ... The length of the sleeves are ok I'm a 35in. ( from the back of my neck to my wrist ) and the sleeves are at my wrist on this shirt....... my height is 6ft2in tall --the length of this shirt fell just below my waist, the length of the shirt measured from the arm pit to the bottom of the shirt was 16in. , The length of the shirt from the top of the shoulder to the bottom of the shirt is 26in..........the width of the shirt was ok, wished it was tighter, My waist is 32in and the shirt was 19.5in x2= 39in wide at the bottom.... Over all the sizes they gave are a bit misleading, I did order the largest shirt they had 2XL= us xl (not)....more like a big medium... Online this shirt says "stretchy" Well not enough to fit me, I had hope it was stretchy at the waist to show off my abs, not the case... I will say I liked the shirt that's ,why I ordered it, just that this shirt does not come in my size. Too bad, I thought it had found a shirt that I did not have to alter to fit me... But if they ever make a size 3XL ( Asian sizes ) I'm there.. I hope this review helps others with the issue of sizing...
