    I do, I can't seem to find a shirt that fits right. They have the inch measurment charts for shirts that have the sized based on chest/waist. Well according to the waist I should have a small, but for chest I should be somewhere around a medium or large. So a small is perfect length and isn't all baggy, but it's frickin tight aorund the chest. medium is ok, a little tihgt around chest and a little baggy. and then large is good on chest but too long and baggy.

    oh yah, i'm only 5' 8" hence the length issues. anyone else have this problem, what do you do? I have 1 button up A&F shirt that fits perfect but on the size tag it says "small, muscle" and I don't see alot of those around, i think it just had a bigger chest size. Fitness stuff usually fits pretty good too, but I'm not wearing that everyday.

    The other day I got some medium GAP stretch fit shirts, they stretch around my chest and look all tight but then they are still all baggy on bottom, looks kinda retarded. I wouldn't recommend them.

    dress shirts from major retailers like express and banana are really tight across the chest/shoulder but other than that, not really.

    I have a 28 in waist. Most times, I can't find this size. I rock 30x32 pants... even those are hard to find though.

    As for shirts, I always find that I have problems in the sleeve area. I usually have to buy large just for the sleeve, but then the rest of it is bulky on me. I get my stuff tailored.

    hmm, i'm 5'6" and i wear a large t-shirt. If you're talking about dress shirts, then don't buy dress shirts that aren't real sizes, i.e. small isn't a dress shirt size 17-33 is.

    well, when you go up sized like small to medium to large, not only do they get bigger around they get longer as well, right? at least that's what I always thought.

    i suck with sizes and crap but all i know is that i have tried on shirts that are a medium and go past my frickin crotch, and others that are just a little too long. small always seem to be the right length, and right circumference at teh waist but way to tight around the chest, except this a&f shirt i have which is small "muscle" it says. i want more cut like that, where do i get them.

    Buy the shirts that fit your chest and have the bottom tailored to fit you. Shouldn't cost you more than $20 and you'll look like a million bucks. Short muscular guys look goofy running around in XXL button up shirts that hang down to their knees. :rofl: (Not that I'm saying you're a short muscular guy)

    Like it or not first impressions are made based primarily on your looks, and don't get a second chance for a first impression. Why spend so much time and money on making your body look good and then drap it in clothes that do not fit right? That sounds like more of a waste of time and money to me, but whatever floats your boat.

    only the small "muscle" ones. I have two labeled that and they fit great, but i don't usually see any like that, plus i don't shop at a&f anymore now that i'm paying for college, cellphone, blah blah and all that crap.

    other smalls don't fit me, and some mediums don't either.

    I have an XXL in t-shirts and polos and they are tight as hell on me. I'm decently big, but not huge (6'0" 195lbs w/ an athletic build). you must be TINY to get a small there
