I have an idea.  It may be possible to selectively shrink the arms (just the arms)....We will run a test in the next day or so.....

That would be awesome if it's possible!

So conversely could you stretch the chest and mid?  :)

Just to be clear, the longer sleeves are not new gen.  They are old.  Go look at sizing charts or try on an 06, 12 or 20. There was one season with shorter sleeves.  It is not something new.

Whatever, they don't fit me now. The 'mid gen' shirts did.

@Giles -Austin at SENY had suggested soaking the sleeves in hot water to bring them up. Never did it. Is that what you had in mind?

New gen, mid gen, old gen... doesn't matter.  I find it beyond awesome that @Giles is researching options to make all of us spoiled brats happy.  :-*













...but shorter sleeves would be nice :-X

Since it hasn't been said enough:  Red/Black/Cream is perfect.

Definitely happening.

This will also cause some shrinkage in the horizontal direction.  I wonder how this will affect the transition between the sleeve and body.  I could imagine some pulling around the arm hole in the body.

It sounds like a potential nightmare, G... But we won't know unless you try of course...
