Well...that makes more sense then. That was a womans shirt though. If the kids measurment was slightly too small, it was a 12, there are still 14-16 and 18's.

Theres also the fact that not every size is going to be the same either, so even if you are a 14 in one thing, you could be a 16 in another company. Plus the cuts make them fit differently again as well.

Its too bad that the 14 is 90, cause it probably would have fit pretty close to perfect.

I wouldn't worry about a sleeve being too long. I've rarely seen a person in a shirt with a sleeve that was TOO long. Once your jacket is on you want about a quarter inch of cuff peeking out from under your jacket sleeve. And, remember as your ride and your arms are moving forward and back (or releasing over a jump) you really don't want to be restricted from your shirt. Yes, that might mean your sleeves are a little baggy, but you won't be able to tell under a jacket.

Nice find upnover!

Now only if they had my size....

ETA: Out of all the shirts in ladies, there was only 1 in my size, and not a colour that I like. That's sad, cause I would have loved to get another shirt as a backup.

I am 5'7'' and 150 lbs and I wear a 38 in show shirts. They aren't supposed to fit too tight and sleeves that are a little too long are actually better as they give you a little room to move your arms. Plus they button at your wrist so its not like they will keep slipping past your wrist. I have two Ariat ones that I love.

Well then now I know I'm around a 14-16 in show shirts. ;) Thanks guys. I appreciate the feedback because I don't know anything on show apparel.

And OMG! Upnover I checked your link, and because my mother doesn't trust me buying clothes online (ever since I ordered a pair of field boots that didn't fit and had to ship back... lost 20 bucks ><) I checked where there locations are. Was disappointed to see there were none in Maine, but I made an even better discovery!!!! There is one in Montreal!!!!!! :) I'm happy, happy, happy! Now I just have to convince my dad to drive me there once I get money. They might not have deals like I see online but if ever I can I want to go check it out. :)

I think the store locations just gives stores that carry their product. I only say that because two of the stores they have posted for Ontario, I frequent quite often, and have never seen shirts on for that price.

You can always call EFO and ask for pricing on some stuff. It would be a lot nicer if what they had was posted on the website a bit better.

You do not have to have a credit card. You can opien a bank acount just for your paypal and only put what you are going to spend in it. Then you register it with pay pal. This will keep your main acounts safe if you are worried. I personly have never had a problem but it is easy to opien a second cheaking acount with just 100 dallors. Then you can shop on line with no worries.

live for the moment.
