The Near Perfect T-Shirt Size
A T-shirt is a favorite piece of clothing of all time, some prefer to wear it loose and comfortable, while others prefer to look fit and stylish.
(1) There are two broad categories:Standard/Classic Fit (Black T) and Fashion/Slim Fit (White T).
(2) How will it look like if the same person wears a t-shirt size from S to 2XL?
It's likely that you'll choose the size M or L t-shirts if you take a look at the shoulder and chest area first.
Before choosing a new t-shirt, it's a good idea to measure your current favorite t-shirt's width and compare it to the size chart of the new one.
ShoulderThe shoulder seam should line up with the End of the Shoulder Bone, where it meets the top of the arm. If it droops over the edge, the shirt is probably too big. If the seam lands in the area before the shoulder curve starts, the tee is too small.
SleevesThe sleeve’s hem should fall at the middle of the bicep and should hug the arm without flaring out over two inches. Standard or classic fit tees have bigger armholes that flare out. Slightly longer sleeves can work for taller people.
LengthA T-shirt should cover the waistline and fall at the hips about halfway down the fly. This length can vary a few inches based on a person’s height, but it should never go past the top of the inseam or start looking like a nightgown.
CollarThe neckline should sit flat above the collarbone without being too loose or light. Standard/Classic Fit tees have wider collars than Fashion/Slim Fit. A V-neck can fall just below the clavicle. Men should avoid “deep” V-necks.
ChestThe chest area should be more form-fitting than the lower half, but there should be no stretching or bunching under the armpit area. This is where the tapering construction of fashion-fit tees does a great job of hugging the body better.
TorsoThe torso should taper in slightly to contour to the body, rather than straight or bulking out. Side-seamed shirts provide this fitted look, while Standard/Classic Fit counterparts have a boxier, baggier shape around the torso.
(3) What is Unisex t-shirt?If it doesn’t specify men or ladies, it’s a standalone style – aka unisex. Meaning a men’s cut that women can also wear.
T-shirt measurements typically include length and width as a size guide, but some also include sleeve length.
(4) Understand Your Own Body Type
You may want to understand your own Body Type in terms of “shape and proportions” before selecting the right size t-shirt for your body type.As there is no 100 percent perfect t-shirt that may suite everyone Body Type, it is alright to have slightly droops over the edge or End of the Shoulder Bone, if your focus is on the chest and waist area, either for men or women.
