Purchased for my husband. Ordered an XL. My husband is 5'8'' and weighs 188 pounds. He's broad shouldered although I can't remember his exact measurements offhand. He has a longer torso than average but the shirt is definitely long enough to work well in a gym setting. Washes well and doesn't hold odor after a workout the way a regular cotton tee does.
Husband loves it. I gave this to him as one of his Christmas presents and he was very happy with it. It is made of a dry weave material that does cling to the chest, but he does not mind at all. I ordered the XXL to allow a little bit more room but around the holidays there really wasn't much room at all! It's definitely for hot summer days as it does allow for ventilation. I am just pleased that he was happy with his present.
I love this fabric. It is light and comfortable but still has a texture to it when you rub it between your fingers, like a coarse silk. I purchased 4 of these t-shirts to make sure I always have one on hand. I usually put this on as soon as I get home from work and is very nice to sleep in.
I am replacing my Under Armour Heat Gear shirts. I have to say that this shirt fit great and that it kept me cooler than my Under Armour shirts. Another issue with the Under Armour shirts was that deodorant accumulated and created rigid spots in the armpit area...and it would not come out. Hopefully these hydrophobic shirts wont do the same thing, I'm impressed with this one and will definitely buy more!
My son really liked this shirt in Jamaica. I bought several like it, too. He could wear it to breakfast at the resort and look nice, then wear it in the pool or ocean (avoiding massive amounts of sunscreen), dry off fairly quickly, then wear it at the buffet lunch and nobody knew the difference because it still looked great.
