Measurements are in inches and done with shirts laid on a flat surface.
Chest is measured across the front chest, one inch below armhole, edge to edge, when a shirt is laid flat.
The approximate suit jacket chest size is also provided in parentheses on the chart.
Body Length is measured at the highest point of the shoulder, the top edge of the collar straight down to the bottom hem edge.
Sleeve Length is measured at the top of the shoulder seam, where the sleeve connects to the shoulder, down to the sleeve hem edge.
So if you already have a shirt that fits you, you can take these 3 measurements, then find the closest match on our size chart to get something similar.
Chest Length (Suit Jacket)
How it fits
Our shirts have a slimmish, tapered fit. It’s neither too tight nor too loose. Slim fit varies a lot between brands, but we’d consider this in the slim fit family. Some brands call this a fashion fit or semi-fitted. They aren’t super tightly form fitting like a fitted tee. They have a slight roominess that keeps it comfy. It follows the lines of the body without clinging to you.
Basically, it’ll drape on you to show your body’s contours without being a skin tight kind of deal–perfect if you aren’t exactly sporting a six pack, but still like having a shape in your tee.
A Medium fits well on Destroy the Comics’ editor’s 5′ 7″, 159 lb, lean, athletic Asian male body as a wear-around-town-casual-hip T-shirt and jeans look. He comments it enhances his chest area to look nice, has good arm fit, and shows off his slim figure nicely. The shirt is ideally built for someone perhaps an inch taller, but our editor doesn’t really mind or notice the slight extra length. That’s his only nitpick.
Here’s how a Large looks on a 5′ 10″ 183 lb muscular male:
Some other sizes people have bought, along with their height and weight:
5′ 10″, 180 lbs: Large
6′, 205 lbs: XL
6′ 4″, athletic build: XXL
Here’s one person’s fit experience:
Comfortable and durable. I’m 5 ’11, 150lbs, a medium is slim fitting, a large is loose but not too overwhelming or baggy. I prefer the large cause it feels less restrictive, but it is a bit wide for me around the waste so I tie off an inch or so. Shirt length should be shortened by 1-2 inches, but there are natural variations that give or take an inch during the production process, so two of the same shirts may vary slightly.
Here’s how another person feels about the fit:
I am 5’9″, 175 lbs, and in very fit shape with no gut, this shirts fits absolutely perfect, conforms to my body in all the right places, I like a form fitting shirt but not too tight and not too loose and this does just that, looks amazing round my arms chest and shoulders but relaxed around my stomach and waist. the length is also perfect, not too long and not too short, it really is perfect and you can not beat the price. so if you have a similar build, I highly recommend this size [Medium]. ordered this as a test size and loved it so much I just ordered 4 more in other colors. I also tried a large, which also fits great, but I like a tad bit more form fitting size, if you like slightly looser fit all around the large is a good choice and still looks great.
How to Care for Your Shirts
Since shirts are made-to-order, some pretreatment residue may remain on the shirt, giving a slightly plastic like feel to the printing area. Washing your shirt will make this residue disappear.
Wash your shirts inside out to help preserve the art print.
Machine wash cold. Do not bleach. Tumble dry on low.
If you want to extend the life more, dry it only to about 70% then hang dry it to finish. Avoid washing it with towels or rough fabrics to really baby that print.
You can iron on low, but try to avoid printed areas. High temperatures are the enemy of ink.
If you drop something on your shirt that stains try to blot it with some water so the stain won’t set. You can try blotting with some warm water + club soda or laundry detergent to remove the stain. Make sure you rinse it after.
