▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄ SIZES ▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄

A summary of the key measurements are shown below.

The T-shirts were measured laying on a flat surface:

Length = measured from top to bottom


S = Chest 34-36" (86-91 cm) Length 28" (71 cm)*

M = Chest 38-40" (96-101 cm) Length 29" (74 cm)*

L = Chest 42-44" (106-112 cm) Length 30" (76 cm)*

3XL, 4XL & 5XL are also available in black, white or navy blue. Please click / tap on the "Ask a Question" button.

To ensure you get the right size, it is best to measure an existing T-shirt you wear and compare it to the measurements shown above or in the additional image called "Size Chart t-shirts" - see thumbnails below main image above.

If in doubt size up – you can always wear a t-shirt that is slightly big, but not one that is too small.

I do offer an exchange service for wrong sizes ordered - further details can be found under the "Shipping and Policies" tab at the top of this description.

*All measurements quoted are approximations. The shirt manufacturer's stated tolerance is +/- 1 inch (2.5 cm) of the dimensions shown.
