A random thought crossed my mind last week. Have shirt sleeves lengthened recently?
In the past when I would buy a shirt labelled L it would have sleeves that were slightly too short. I had many of these shirts–I would just roll the cuffs back and wear them in a casual fashion. When I wanted properly fitted sleeves I would buy fitted shirts with 35/36 sleeves or LT-sized shirts.
Recently (last week as I walked across campus) I noticed that L shirts I have purchased in the past three years or so fit.
Since my old L shirts are still short I have ruled out that I have shrunk. Right now I see two possibilities:
1. I am buying brands that use larger sizing than the brands I purchased in the past.
2. Shirt sleeves have lengthened.
Has anyone else noticed that shirt sleeves have lengthened?
