Finding the right T-Shirt length
Posted on 01 October 2015
Sun’s out guns out. So get out of the gym and into your favorite sleeveless tee. But once the sun goes down, you better attach some sleeves to those perfectly bronzed biceps. Wearing a sleeveless tee to anywhere other than the beach or gym basically implies that you’re poor and can’t afford sleeves.
Tees are tricky though. You want to make sure all that time in the gym is on display even after the sleeveless takes a rest fo the night. The trickiness usually comes in a couple flavors.
- It’s not the right length from neck to waist.
- The sleeves are either as baggy as a caddy or as tight as a republican.
We’ve all been to the fitting room with a bodybuilding weight load of tees only to walk out with none. At least the arm you carried them in with will be guaranteed ready for beach season. But the oringial mission failed.
Here’s how I’m going to help you find the perfect tee. I’m going to let you in on a few tricks I’ve picked up over the years.
You don’t want to go too long.
It’s sundress season. But not for you. Make sure the shirt doesn’t drape more than ¼ way down your rear end. Otherwise you’re definitely going to get some unfortuante looks.
You don’t want to go too short.
Wave to yourself in the mirror. Use whatever wave you want. I always go with the royal hand cup wave. Sorry for being classy.
If your wave results in the tee coming off the waist and showing skin, you’re wearing a tee that is too short. When you wave, show a little belt, not a little belly.
We’ve tested these methods. And many other scientific forms of tee shirt perfection verification. Yes, it’s a science. So take our scientists’ word for it. We have the Holy Grail of tees over here.
