    Unhappy If only I had a neck

    so many nice shirts but its so hard to find them in 18.5 - especially without having 37" arms

    Sure I work my neck but a lot is genetic - its just not fair the rest of you have skinny necks

    and it doesnt help me in all my pictures either

    Just how I pictured you, but also with a Dungeons and Dragons manual.

    Yeah, dress shirts are measured in sleeve length guys... not bicep circumference

    Is there any shirt manufacturers that make shirts bigger in the neck and shoulders but taper down to the waist? Whenever I find a shirt that is comfortable in the shoulders it looks like a god **** tent hanging down to the waist...

    I certainly feel you on that. Football (linebacker/fullback) caused my neck to swell up like a buck in rut. My shirts are 19.5" x 34.5." Brooks Brothers is about the only company that I have found making shirts for people built like barrels. Unfortunately, they are not tapered very well. Instead they bunch up tremendously in the waist.

    Did I mention that in all of my pictures, it looks like my traps have ears (not because I have big traps...just no neck)?

    Im pretty sure that Cycleon is trying to say that when he does infact find a shirt that fits his neck comfortably, the arms on that particular shirt ar impossible to fill without using synthol or being morbidly obese...LOL

    I had to go and buy an 18" shirt right before my bros wedding because none of my old shirts would fit, there was like a 1.5 inch gap between the buttons..hahahha

    I got to the tailor shop and have them make my shirts. The best thing I ever have done. Now shirts I dont button for a tie, I dont care so much. I usually get a shirt that like 2xl or 36-37 so my arms and shoulders fit, then take those to my tailor and he fixes em right up.

    Yeah, I've got a few Claiborne atletic cut dress shirts. They are cut with a taper to the waist and have a small amount of Lycra, look great.

    Redneck thing I guess.

    Female deer go into "season" once a year. When they are ready for breeding, the males go nuts. They start producing a very strong odor and become very territorial. Their necks swell up in size during this period.

    Hence, "like a buck (male deer) in rut."
