There's a man at my gym that wears a shirt like that and he always wears sweat pants (year-round) that he rolls up to mid-calf! What a fashion statement!

My son has a shirt like that for mowing the yard. You start with a tank top that is several sizes too big and then you tear out the sleeve binding.

I see that look at the gym too, but since everyone I see wearing one of those shirts looks to be 20 or younger, I think that I will stay away from that look.

I'm not a fan of the look of those shirts, but from what I can tell, they basically start at the seam at the top of the shoulder and cut a large hole down the side of the shirt. Basically you're cutting off the sleeve and then some. I'm not sure how to explain it well but I've been told that the initial look was to just cut off the sleeves and the shirts eventually look like that, but I don't believe it. They made them that way, I'm betting. Also, even after you have the side holes if your shirt still looks "smock-ish" wash and dry it and if you still don't like the look of it, you can start cutting in on the seam on the top of the shoulder. Be careful not to completely unravel the entire seam or the shirt will fall apart but basically you could start to "tailor" it to look like you want. I know lots of people that cut V's into the neck of their round collar shirts to provide increased range of motion.

ok, this is a stupid question, but I've seen a lot of people at the gym wearing what appears to be t-shirts with the sleeves cut off and the sides are kind of open under the arm pit. They look comfortable but I'm not sure exactly how to replicate this.

It wounds simple, but I tried it with a t-shirt I have that i really don't like and it doesn't look like. My version looks like a smock.

Anyone who knows what I'm talking about, could someone give me a little more explanation on what to do or even better a picture of a shirt like this that I could look at to try to duplicate? google is not helping me. If I could find a picture it would be easier. It's hard to go based on my memory of passing glances at others at the gym.
