T-Shirt Sizes

There have been many requests for Keypicking merchandise, T-Shirts being one of them.

There are many sources, some are made and shipped on demand, some require pre-ordering a batch.

I'm still researching good places from which to order, but if I end up going with a place that requires ordering a large batch to have shipped to me all at once which I would re-ship as needed, It will be helpful to have an idea of size distribution amongst our members.

I'm not asking for any commitments to order, but if you even think you might be interested in getting one, please use the survey on this thread to indicate which size you would need.

I always get confused, beacasue US suzes tend to be bigger than Europen sizes.
Do you have any indication on how big for example a medium or large would be? As a comparison :)

Until I pick a specific vendor, no. Every company seems to have some variation from the next. I'm just looking for a rough idea here to help guide what ratios to order.

Pens?! Shirts?! Very cool! To the mods & site owners.... just wanna say thanks for all you guys do!
It also seems to me like you're very cautious & smart as to how often and what funds go to. NICE!

You callin' us FAT?! haha, just messin' with ya.

I've never weighed more than about 175 (when exercising). And when I stop working out, I drop to about 155.
I'm about 5'11'' and nearly ALWAYS take a Large. Once in a great while (depending on the brand), a Medium.

Hopefully that gives you an idea anyway.

I always get large t-shirts because I like to have room to move and do things when wearing a t-shirt. A medium fits, but does not allow the free range of movement I prefer.

For BASIC size charts here is a reference. Please note this is only a ROUGH guide as manufactures do vary. Then there is also people that require tall shirts. (Generally over 6 feet tall) You might also want to account for a small amount of shrinkage...... (don't you dare say it Jeff :whip: )

So you get a larger size to accommodate excess shit??? Riy, many of us suspected, but none of us ever expected to hear you admit it! :razz: :D

I have an American Apparel silk screen shirt I got from a customer and I feel it runs small and is a bit short in comparison to other brands. The sizing chart seems accurate because I'm a 48 chest and wear an XL tall if I can find one. I don't like XXL's because i feel like they are just fatter in the waist and don't fit right. I'm 6 foot tall and about 265lbs for reference. I've lost 50 pounds so far. Another 50 to go!

I actually buy shoes on European sizes because they seem more consistent. I have American 14's and 15's that say euro 50 in them.
