Slim fit? More like tight fit.
on October 14, 2015
I have a problem with these shirts. I bought a pair of Mediums.
I am 6ft 2in, 21 years old. 180lbs.
A few years ago, I bought a pack of these at a Walmart. They were and still are my favorite plain white T's. They fit snug and they were very long which is great for me because I am tall and a business major in college and I am often wearing dress shirts and tucking my shirts into my pants. Ideally, I want a long shirt for this because the longer the shirt, the more I can tuck, the less likely my shirt will slip up from my pants and irritate me.
Now I have bought SEVERAL packs of these shirts all labeled "Hanes Slim Fit Crew Neck T-Shirt" of which NONE fit the same way as my old shirts. I went as far as to take my old, favorite shirts out of the drawer to study and compare the tag-less tag to the images to the ones I saw online. Completely Identical, so I purchased.
When I first got the shirts, the were loose and short which frustrated me because I immediately that they were, once again, yet another packet of shirts that looked identical but were certainly not identical to the ones I prize.
Below I attached a picture. The "Old" shirts are the ones I bought years back that I love. The "New" shirt is the one I ordered here. Now remember, I am 6ft 2in, thing but I do exercise. You can see the differences in the shirts, despite that they are "identical" as far as labeling and description goes. Notice how long my "old" shirts are, which is what I want because they are fantastic for tucking into dress pants. Overall, not slim fit. More like short, tight fight.
