    I just went over to the TB Store. I wanted to order a black T-Shirt. I went to choose the size. The smallest is L?
    From there it goes up to like XXXL.
    How fat do they think we are?
    Are these true sizes, or is the Large really the size of a small?
    I need to know before I order a shirt.
    Any help is appreciated.
    Thanks

    every single one of us looks like the comic book guy from the simpsons.

    "the average trekkie has no use for a medium-sized belt."

  5. Its cheaper to order large T-shirts than smaller ones.



    Besides, Barry White's 300 lbs! You don't need to be slim to be lowdown and dirrrrrty ;)
     
  6. Oh , the things we svelte thin things put up with..:D

    5'11''; 230. I haven't gotten around to order a TB shirt yet, but want to. I generally wear XL. If a shirt is too long in the body, I just tuck it into my pants, of course I usually do that to T-shirts anyway, so it wouldn't be an issue for a TB shirt, as long as it fits around my body, and the sleeves are above my elbows.

    I'm 5'10", and under 150 pounds. How come I can't fit into a medium size shirt? Does being 143 lbs really make me large?
     
  14. 5'11 and 180. 9th grade. XL is good tho.

    5'9" 230 lbs. Don't let the numbers fool you though, I don't look more than 200. Gard and bassbrobrad can vouch for the fact that I'm just big, not obese, or fat or anything like that.

    6ft1 185lbs 10th grade-i can wear larges but prefer XL, the larges have begun to feel a bit too tight in the shoulders & have begun to accent my gut a bit more. i'm pretty much a shorter [6 inches] version of my dad since he's 6ft 7 215-230 or so, we're both tall, got long legs & long arms & have guts. Thats all
