    "Shorter" Sleeve Shirts?

    Does anyone know a good brand of shirt that has "shorter" cut sleeves? Or where to buy these shirts? I normally have to wear an XL which fits great in the torso area but fits terrible in the arms. I am 5'8" and have short arms which makes most XL shirt sleeves come all the way down to my elbow. I want some shirts with shorter than normal sleeves so that I can display my arms. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Check out the custom fit Ralph Lauren Polo shirts. Also American Apparel at americanapparelstore.com has the baby rib fitted short sleeve tee which is perfect for shorter sleeves and a great fit. Or check out amazon.com for a seller named "Andrew Christian" for the american apparel shirts at cheaper prices since they buy them whole direct from American Apparel. I also like 2xist tees ( 3 pack ,vneck, or crewneck ) from smartbargains.com . They're great shirts which are custom fit with shorter sleeves, much better than hanes.

    AJBUILDER, are the American Apparel shirts pretty much "true fit" or so they shrink 2 sizes like most other tees? If I normally wear large or XL would I need to buy a 2XL in these?

    Fred Flintstone, Abercrombie is an "overall" tight fitting shirt. Way too small in the torso area.

    The baby rib fitted ones have the shorter sleeves and they don't really shrink when you wash them because they are custom fit type shirts. They're true size in that respect. You have to look at the garment specs on the site to see the chest/back, length measurements. If you normally wear XL in loose t shirts then you'll have to go with 2XL because these shirts hug closer to the body, but not too tight. For the baby rib fitted I wear an XL and I'm 190lbs. roughly at 5ft 11. and they haved stretched a bit at the collar because they're starting to get too tight. Just look at the measurements for each style. The fine jersery short sleeve and polos are longer in the torso and roomier in general. The henleys are tight and short at the sleeves but longer in length.

    If you can find an american apparel store in your area then just go and try them on. That's what I did.

    Hanes. Sure they don't have fancy names plastered on them, but they fit me great. I wear a large and they seem to cling to the chest and arms, but hang loose around the torso. You can buy the cheap thin ones, or you can buy the thicker ones.
