    T-Shirts

    I'm looking for someone who makes a shorter than average t-shirt. I wear an XL, but want some 2XL's for untucked IWB. All the ones I find drop halfway to my knees. I'd like them to be heavy material also. Anyone know of such a beast?

    I like the rack idea. Is the mistress of darkness there?
    Checked out Carhartt, might work. Anyone else? I haven't checked Cabela's or Bass Pro, because every time I walk in there, it costs me a year's allowance!

    I came across some T's thru a catalog that just might work for you (I'll check on it at my work). They are 3 to 4 inches longer than norm. Made to prevent "plumbers butt"...

    Thanks Art, but I need SHORTER t-shirts. When I oversize to an XXL to gain bagginess, the hem hangs halfway to my knees, and I'm 6' tall.

    AZ Husker, if the 2XL's are too long, just have someone shorten them. All they need to do it is cut it off and re-hem it. If you don't know anyone that sews, most dry cleaners can either do alterations, or can give you a name of someone that does.

    I normally wear XL, but you wash them and they shrink up. 2X are giant everywhere but length.

    I do this with pants hems, occasionally with pockets and belt loops, and on a couple occasions a few shirts. A decent seamstress or tailor can make quick work of these simple changes.

    Another route is to get full cottons in 2-3XL, wash 'em in extremely hot water, twice, then dry them on the hottest setting. They'll shrink up.

    Of course, showin' the midriff is going to make IWB carry a bit tougher ...

    Try Kingsizedirect.com they have shirts for tall guys so it should work for you.
