American Apparel Q's

posted by CatPrime • 3 years ago

A quick question; How does American Apparel compare with fabric quality and fitting because the model photos suggest that the shirts hang weirdly from the armpits and are quite long. These things are keeping me from considering buying designs printed on American Apparel, too.

Hey CatPrime!

Could you please post a picture of what you’re referring to exactly? I’d like to be able to help you out and solve this mystery! Thanks!

Ah-ha! In this particular case, this model is wearing a size large. He would definitely be a size medium, however he had broad shoulders that we needed to compensate for with a larger shirt.

To have a better understanding of the t-shirts in relationship to the models, in Free Your Mind. the male model is wearing a size medium and he is about 5’8” with an athletic build. Sky Diamonds‘s male model is also in an American Apparel size medium and he’s about 6’ with a leaner body.

Hope that information helps let me know if you have any further questions. Thanks, CatPrime!

Ah I see. Free Your Mind also looked odd to me but Sky Diamonds is pretty fitting, I actually thought that was a 50/50. Thanks Staff :)

AA tees are so great. Do not fear them!

Can’t say I agree about AA tees… they’re quality, but the sizing is so skewed towards the small end of the scale that I can’t ever hope to fit nicely into a DBH tee.

I just bought a Women’s XL and I’m going to have to return it because it fits me like a sausage casing.. not attractive.

DBH, I’d spend a ton of money here if you ever decided to offer a women’s tee in a normal size and a normal XL.. I can wear a 16-20, which means I’ll never be able to fit into the XL you offer. AA does offer some tees in actual larger sizes, and their cotton/poly/rayon tees have just enough stretch to fit womens’ curves nicely without being boxy. Boxy is why I don’t just buy mens’ tees – they’re not made for my body.

I’m sadly returning my beautiful tee. I can’t shop DBH for now.. maybe someday. :(

I really like AA. I have worn so many different tee blanks it’s ridiculous but AA is my preferred choice. The fit after a wash is great and they take ink beautifully. I just thought I’d drop my 2 cents in.
