| Check your size by measuring a T-shirt that fits you, flat, sleeve-to-sleeve. |
Chest measurement is a circumference - double the flat measurement:
46cm or 18" flat = 36" chest circumference (" is shorthand for inches)
48cm or 19" flat = 38" T shirt size
51cm or 20" flat = 40" T shirt size
53cm or 21" flat = 42" T shirt size
56cm or 22" flat = 44" T shirt size
Thermal T shirts are sold for wearing more tightly, so the S / M / L labels are one size smaller than the ones for cotton T shirts above.
| These British-made cotton T shirts from Unbranded Apparel are woven in India, then cut and made into T shirts and dyed at a mainstream employers in Leicester. |
The selling point is not that they are from an advertised brand, but that they are from an un-advertised firm that pays UK rates for making the T shirts and so don't have a margin to pay for advertising. If you are not a paid lobbyist using vague terms like "ethical fashion" or "ethical T shirt", you probably know what UK employment is like and that it pays for services like the NHS, dole and pensions far beyond those available to workers making fairtrade T shirts, who tend to be poor for lack of those services rather than for the lack of T shirt orders.
