How should my T Shirt fit from Rugby Pro?

T-shirts might be the most challenging item in your closet to fit properly. It’s true. Too tight and a t-shirt will cling to you and emphasize your body in the wrong ways—but too loose and it will dangle around you like a nightgown. Here are the parts—your parts—and where fit matters most.  The T shirt fit guide from Rugby Pro:

Arms

Your t-shirt’s sleeves should hit at the midpoint of your upper arm. That said, if you’re very tall or have longer arms, a sleeve that cuts lower can work. If you have shorter arms—or huge guns—shorter sleeves can nicely emphasize your biceps. Our American rugby lifestyle t-shirt emulates those needs creating a sleeve that is contoured and proportional to the shirt. No more tight sleeves, or elbow length sleeves, our shirts have the perfect fit, every time.

Torso

Tees are a challenge for the gentleman with a long torso. If you’re a tall or skinny man, please fight any temptation to wear a XXXXL tee. Yes, it might be at the right length, but you’ll disappear in its billowy folds. Instead, look for a long line cut that can cover you without looking boxy. T-shirts should fall just below your belt. If a shirt touches the bottom of your fly, it’s too long.

Shoulders

The majority of men have rounded sloping shoulders—not square ones like Superman. One way to balance round shoulders is with a V-neck collar, since this makes your shoulders look broader. Another tactic is to wear a tee with contrasting sleeves. Regardless of your body type, always make sure the seams of your shirt line up with your shoulder line.

Stomach

Until they invent a shirt that magically bestows six-pack abs on its wearer, you’ll want to be mindful how a shirt fits around your midsection. Your shirt shouldn’t feel painted on, nor should it drape around you like a Mumu. When in doubt, choose a size up in a slim cut. The slim cut will contour and make the shirt feel fitted, while sizing up will ensure it properly fits arms, shoulders, and torso.
