Yeah, and plus they can look "hip" in the process since wearing grossly oversized clothing is so fashionable.

I think it sucks. Mediums fit me and "normal" people a lot better than those giant garbage bags they call t-shirts.

The only person I know who can fit into a medium t-shirt is my little cousin. And I know very few overweight or obese people. If you're trying to imply there's something wrong with people who need to wear larger clothing then you can go **** yourself.

I know a TON of people that fit into medium t-shirts. Hell I know bodybuilders who wear small shirts just to show off. The only people I know that truly fit XL shirts and aren't left with a lot of loose material are either taller than average people or fat. Period.

Usually with T-Shirts you want a lot of loose material. I can't stand wearing tight clothing, makes me itch like crazy.

I wish that tshirts were longer rather than bigger. The average american man I believe is 5'11, its tough to find shirts that fit me good.

LOL what tight clothing are you wearing? Polyester dress shirts?

None of my 100% cotton t-shirts get itchy unless they are brand new and haven't been washed at least once. I don't wear smalls and I do like a small amount of loose material just not much. Mediums are hence what I prefer.

BTW I am curious to see official figures on what the average height is. jAkUp says 5'11" but I'd like to see a link. That seems right but the curious in me wants to see a figure somewhere.

Not that this has anything to do with the thread ofcourse. Sorry for the derailment. It just irritates me (ok so I'm whining big deal) that those of us who prefer a shirt that fits without hanging down to our knee caps always seem to get the short end of the stick in these situations.

Ah see my cotton shirts make me itch, I just can't stand tight clothing. Makes me claustrophobic.

Yeah that sucks for you. I wouldn't know how that is.

Actually I have to order XL-Tall shirts to even get a good fit because most XL shirts barely make it past my waistline (after washing).

Oh and...Quake 4 is gonna r0x0r my b0x0rz!!

Can you order one of the quake4 shirts (or an AMD shirt for that matter) in different sizes from somewhere online? I've poked around in the past looking for that sort of thing but had no luck.

The XL is a perfect fit for my 6' 225lbs carcass.......the pre-order Call of Duty2 (XL)T is even nicer, its such a great shirt my 65yr old 5' 11" 185lbs dad had me pre-order a 2nd copy so he could have one. Its a good fit for him, but I still look better in mine ....lol
