It looks like it fits to a "T" and it is true: I used to surreptitiously study the guys at the gym and imagine what kinds of alterations they would need. Although the high round back is usually associated with some of us older ladies, in fact, these muscular guys would take a similar alteration. At least that was my belief based on observations at the gym. Good luck to dbf at the Manchester Road Race! (By the way, I have this pattern and so I read your review with heightened interest.)

Renren - You're right that the high round back alteration is usually associated with older women, but sometimes muscular guys need it too. I first thought of trying this adjustment not only after noticing how his RTW t-shirts fit but after the seeing how much he works his trapezius muscles when we go to the gym together.

Great tee, nice of you to sew for DBF! How has your and DBF's experience been with this type of fabric, as far as comfort when sweating, wicking, etc?
