DIY Tutrial: How to crop a t-shirt.

Let's all embrace our inner hipster while I reveal to you my new favorite t-shit.

Here is it in all of it's cropped glory:
It's great, isn't it?
Fall uniform: This tee, black jeans, docs, bike jacket. Instaballer. 

A few weeks back one of my more bad-ass coworkers (Hi, Adam!) directed me to this dream of an e-store. I spent hours, nay, days debating which shirt to buy. They are all so so wonderful in so many ways. It was a tough call, but in the end the three wolves howling at the moon was the one. It was always the one. I sized up and went baggy, because the shirt is a men's cut and I have boobs. Pre-crop, it was quite long and the sleeves were too baggy for my lady arms. It looked alright when I rolled the sleeves up, but I wanted a muscle tee. And, as my bad-ass coworker Adam said, "Suns out, guns out." And you know, I think that's a truth we should all live by. 

Here I am being a derp and wearing the muscle-t for a night out on the town. 
I think I look great. But that's just my opinion. 

And here is Dwight wearing the same tee on The Office:
Howl on, Dwight. Howl on. 

I obviously didn't make this shirt BUT I did crop it, and I cropped it well. Some people are reluctant to bring scissors to their clothes in fear of ruining a perfectly OK item. I gotchyou bro. I gotchyou. You see, my ultimate goal in life to to eliminate the fear of bringing scissors to fabric. We all have our purpose in life. This happens to be mine.  

1. Awesome t-shirt from The Mountain. 
2. That tank top in your closet that fits you perfectly. 
3. Scissors. 
4. A white chalk pencil from Blick. 

Step 1:
Lay your tank top over your t-shirt. 

Step 2:
Use the white pencil to outline the tank on your t-shirt. Get both arm holes as well as the bottom length. 

Step 3:
Cut along the white lines. I made mine about and inch shorter in front. 

Now wear it out and look awesome:

I see many more Mountain Tees in my future. You?
