sleeves too short. and wrong fitment.......size and fit are different things now?
on December 17, 2013
The sleeves on my shirt still had a production sticker on them.......a sticker with a capitol letter L, To me that probably means "large".....so this Tall sized shirt does not have Tall specific sleeves. They just sew on regular sleeves to a tall shirt body, thus when I lift up my arm, the sleeves ride up and feels like my pits are hanging out.
Also no stretch in the neckband.........first time I out it on, the neck is already stretching out and mis-shaped, all I did was pull it over my head. the neckband is clearly a size or two larger. the neckband does not have any elastic at all.
The sleeves are sewn on at an angle, that makes the shirt look better when your sleeves are at rest at your sides, but when you actually use your arms to reach for something, they ride up and bind at the top of your arm.
Material and construction seems really good, the overall torso and body length are also very good, and the shoulder room is perfect for my frame, but the pattern is wrong and the neckband is horrible.
Will try another version of the dickies shirt, perhaps the neckband problems area fluke or specific to the "with wicking" version.
