So anyway, i'm a pretty tiny dude. And apparently we smaller, more petite types aren't catered for in the "interesting" clothing departments of the world. Basically every concert shirt ever made in the world is somewhere between L and XXXL... neither of which i am close to. So after a bit of careful pinning, sewing, marking and teeth gritting, these are my two most recent reconstructions:

Exhibit a: Aerosmith shirt bought in Shibuya, Japan earlier this year. Was a bit big and cut a little weird (fitting shoulders, yet long flapping sleeves and waist. Odd)

A few baseball sleeves later and a hood:

and we have one happy guy with a cool new Aerosmith jersey

Exhibit b: Sabbat shirt. XXXL. Great 80's thrash band, not so great sizing choice.

snip here, sew there:

And one more for good luck and the obligatory self-phone-photo:
