Awful pic but to give you an idea of the fit, this is M.. Couldn't size down in shoulders and chest and my guns are reasonable..

Hasn't been washed yet so hoping a 30 and a low tumble dry will have it shrunk a tad.

If not, I'll probably just get them tailored. Still works out cheaper than the Real McCoy's proper loopwheeled ones (not the ones for the group buy).

shoulder flair is the bane of my life. the best fitting tee i've found for me is a Donhou Cycles shirt which is printed on an AA blank. it fits nice but is obviously pretty thin

Looks good Reuben, though if that's a M I think that I'll be sizing down! Laughing out loud

Can anyone comment on these? Ideally aiming for the fit above.

got ^ navy, fits a bit smaller than the 2 packs - mine went through wash&dry and shrunk a bit. I actually prefer the seamed versions which handle the wash better imo. Size up on the 2packs - fit a bit like the IH above and shrink down nice with a 40 wash and half a tumble.

What size did you go for Dee? Large? Contemplated getting one of the loop wheeled RMC but thought medium would shrink too much and large would be massive. How much do you reckon your navy one shrank in the chest?

Bought a few plain white asos tees for lounging about the house in and was pleasantly surprised by the weight and fit of them. Went tts

L in both

loopwheel lost an inch in the chest (laid flat without stretching) and lost approx an inch on length. 21 x 26 wash and full tumble

2 pack lost 0.5 in the chest but more on the length, about 1.5 to 2 inch - the cotton is more rough and starchy on these than the loopwheel, neck stretched a little bigger too but now fits like the above after one wash and tumble dried to slight damp/almost dry.

Buying loopwheeled tees and having to get the sleeves altered by a tailor just seems ridiculous. By and large the fit on these high end tees seems awful.

Was happy with them at the time but came to find the dickies a bit thin, plus the collars on mine warped after a while. Decent beater tees but wouldn't expect them to last much longer than a summer. 3 for 25 quid isn't it? That's what they're worth

3 for £30 most places, do they fit true to size? Thought they might be a bit better than beater tees but fair enough.
