I was going to an event which required me to wear a lumberjack shirt.
There was no time to prepare so bought, and wore this 100% cotton Superdry men’s shirt.
The fit was not perfect so later I decided to shorten the length, but I followed the line of the original hem ie higher at the sides, just made it all shorter,
Disaster, I had cut too much off and made it too short – maybe still OK to wear with higher waist trousers but not much else.
I didn’t want to give up, I’d paid £40 for this shirt, and looked for ways to salvage the situation. One issue was, that being a man’s fit, the shoulders were too long and the armpit too low, leading to the shirt rising up even higher whenever I lifted my arms, so I shortened the shoulders and added a blue t-shirt fabric insert to the armpits to make them higher.
Well I’m not sure it’s a great success although the insert is not that visible and it’s made a nice soft seamless armpit.
