Looking at buying a couple shirts from the winter clearance sale.  Anybody who bought the raglan long sleeve shirt, does it run true to size?  Did it shrink?  Wife is wanting one, but not sure what size to get.

I've been wondering the same thing.  I'm not sure if it's a slimmer fit or if an XL is really big like a regular concert tee.

I haven't worn or washed it yet so I can't speak to shrinking, but it definitely runs smaller than the regular concert tees.  In case a visualization is helpful to you, this is my size small raglan on top of my size small R40 skull shirt (also unworn/unwashed, hey I have more Rush shirts than I need :blush: )...

Whoa...that looks tiny. lol.  Yeah, I had a feeling they would run a bit small compared to a standard shirt.  I'm considering an order.  Not that I "need" more Rush merch. Who am I kidding?  Yeah...I do.  :D

Fortunately, missing out on a show didn't come down to money.  For me it came down to logistics and timing.  I've only been to 2 Rush shows, but those experiences were priceless.

I bought the raglan shirt pictured in this thread through the Backstage Club and ended up sending it back.  I really wanted to like it, and it looks very cool, but it was just too form-fitting for me.  I wish it had been just made in 100% cotton.

The next larger size would have fit looser, but would have been too big so it was an "oh, well...." moment for me.

I have seen others wearing it, though, so at the current $19.99 price it might be worth giving it a shot if you think it might be something you'll like.

Interesting, thanks for your thoughts on it.  I'm still on fence.  I like to wear t-shirts underneath, so I don't know what to do. lol

Maybe spring for a larger size than what you'd normally wear? It seemed to me that it would lend itself well to having a shirt underneath since the white fabric in particular is somewhat thin.  I think you can tell from my picture that you can see through it a bit.  I tried it on with a sleeveless top underneath so I wouldn't feel like everything was on display :lol: and that's how I plan to wear it.

Just got both my shirts, large size. They're larger than I remember their larges coming. I hope they shrink once, slightly, in the wash.

Yep, that's the usual route I go...mostly XL which I'm swimming in a bit without a tee underneath, but I'm used to wearing them a little bigger  I'm a fan of the slimmer fit retro style tees.  They seem to fit me perfect in XL...and they're soft!
