It is my experience that American Apparel cotton shirts are more form-fitting than the common T-shirt brand, especially after a good wash and drying. Order up a size if you like your shirts baggy. Stay with your size if you like the shirts more urban and form-fitting

As with all graphic T's, it is best to wash them inside out to retain the color on the outside of the shirt and lessen the damage to any graphics on the front. Wash in cold and tumble dry low.
