For example someone may like the super tight neck in some t-shirt brands while I can't stand that. Some like long shirts that sit below your hips and some prefer shirts that hang at the belt line, etc...
I personally love the way the women's shirts fit with the Anvil shirts. They fit me perfectly in the WS. Other's here will tell you that the Anvils are the most horrid thing on the planet and to them no shirt is better than an AA (which I find I can barely stand wearing).
Wouldn't the best thing to do is check the SIZE CHART, spend $12 for 1 t-shirt, then decide for yourself if you'd ever buy that brand again. Even an ill-fitting shirt can be wearable somehow. Plus I've had good CS with Woot helping me exchange sizes when I needed.
Good answer, and exactly what I did. I'm one who prefers tight and close to my neck for t-shirts. I didn't even know I was getting Anvil, nor did I care..until I got the shirt and out it on. The Anvils just seem too cheaply made, the neck stretches out too much, and there isn't enough belly room for beer brewers like myself. I think since Anvil, I've only bought a couplf of shirts for my fiance and my nephew.. The few shirts that had the AA option didn't appeal to me.
So as recco'd above, drop the $12 in your normal size. You'll either like it, or dislike it...but you'll know for sure if you have a preference for one brand or another.
P.S. - Hey Woot, bring back the AA option, and you'll sell a lot more shirts.
