I have a... well, not a problem, per se, but certainly something that warrants consideration.
I'm a French horn player (in case the user pic didn't tip you off) and I'm also a fan of games like guitar hero. So naturally when I came across a t-shirt with "French Horn Hero" written in Guitar Hero design, complete with flames of pure Rock 'n' Roll and hard-core picture of French horn, the question wasn't so much "should I buy it?" as it was "where do I sign?" Unfortunately the shirt only came in one size (male 2x), but I figured a 2x shouldn't be too small, especially if it's a male size.
The shirt came today and I have no complaints. The design looks just like it did on the site, and wearing it makes me feel like the true band/gaming geek that I strive to become. The only thing is, 2x is in fact a pretty large size for me, and the shirt comes down past my arse and the sleeves go down past my elbows.
So my question is, with shirts like this (including band shirts and the like), how do you wear them? I think for many the answer would be "i shove it on and have done with it", but I'm wondering if an opportunity's being missed here. At the moment I've rolled the sleeves up a bit and have been playing with wearing belts over it to cinch the waist and maybe wear leggings with it instead of jeans, although I don't think I would do that in public because it is a bit too short to really be considered a dress and i'm quite opposed to the leggings = pants philosophy. If I had skinny jeans I think I could totally rock this shirt, but affording a pair of those is a bit of a pipe dream right now.
So what do y'all think?
