    Shirt arms too tight and too long?

    Metal bash 2ply and i can't put it on inside out either because the arms are too tight. When i got the shirt a couple months ago i put it on myself and pr'ed easy i guess my arms got bigger cause now its super hard to get on and i'm getting less pop out of it. Should i just roll the sleeves down a little. To give you an idea of how tight it is, last time i wore it i pinched a nerve and two of my fingers were numb for a few days. This sucks cause its brand new.

    You might think about trying to stretch the sleeves out a little by blowing up a football in each arm and leaving it there for several hours. You just have to be careful so you don't stretch the sleeves out too much the first time.

    I Wore a bash for a while and loved that Shirt. Like Sean said the football move works great. Also what works is put the shirt in between two barbells from a rack and gently pull them apart.

    Poly has to balls toight for it to work so dont go too crazy stretching wise.

    I would do this incremently, maybe 20-30 minutes at a time. I left the football in too long and made the arms in my Bash too big.

    Have you tried wetting the sleeves down and then wearing the shirt? Sometimes this is a good solution and shouldn't stretch it too much. You can always go with the ball later if it doesn't work.
