I'm in the process of putting together a Matt cosplay for my bf and am having a heck of a time finding his striped shirt:

It doesn't help that it's May of course, and long sleeved shirts are few and far between. If any of you lovely Matt cosplayers, (or anyone else who has come across such a shirt and/or striped fabric), have suggestions, please send them along!

Thanks!

ebay ^^ lol l found two on there, went to jcpenny and they had some long sleeve shirts on sale but not the right colors sooo...hot topic?

Or you can do like me and Kitty and have all the Matt cosplayers go on strike of long sleeve shirts ^^; my cosplay of him is in augest and the shirt is too hot so I was going to wear a graphic shirt that said 'gamers do it with roleplay' and walk around in the rest of my matt cosplay with a sign saying I'm on strike xD

Heheheh...long shirt strike...LOVE it!

I found a couple on e-bay...but with shipping it comes to nearly $40...which is a bit more than by budget will allow...I might try hot topic, (would they have long sleeves this time of year? hm...)

Would this work? There's a tiny symbol on the left chest area but it should be covered up with his vest I would think.

I'm not sure, but that shirt looks pretty good, I might buy it too :P

The little symbol could probably be taken off

Okay, I realize I'm about 4 months too late to reply to this, but it doesn't seem like that is still availiable on amazon... at least, the link doesn't appear to work properly... and I also need help getting a shirt!

Is there anywhere else that sells them? Or are they still avaliable on amazon somewhere? I looked but didn't find anything.

go to Sears. That's where I got mine :) and it's PERFECT. EXACTLY like Matt's! Even when you have the vest off :D

Most party shops are starting to put out their Halloween inventory. If you need something cheap, the top of a prisoner costume (the stereotypical prison stripes, not the orange correctional facility one) would probably work; that's what I'm using as a last resort.

A flaw to this approach, though, is that they tend to be loose-fitting rather than a "perfect fit" type like Matt wears. The tops that are a good fit (that I've found, at least) usually have prisoner numbers on them. If it's a patch, it's easy enough to remove or, if it isn't, cover up with the vest, but I'd rather not have to alter/hide anything on the shirt if I can help it, but that's just me.

I got mine off the Urban Behavior website. It was 24$ with shipping... but well worth it. It hangs perfectly, the perfect size of the stripes... and I wear the shirt to school all the time! XD

I'm even ordering a second for another Matt costume from his last appearance.

I know it's alittle late to be posting something, but oh well. I was wondering, does the shirt have to be like... not tight fitting but be a little loose? Or alot loose like L's? I'm not entirely sure. =/ I love the, "I'm on strike!" deal, that is amazing. xD

Edit: Well, I found a shirt on Amazon.com and wanted to know if it would work.
Link! (http://www.amazon.com/Petite-C-B-Casual-Engineer-Striped/dp/B000W89W72/ref=pd_sbs_a_2/102-3877144-4363343?ie=UTF8&qid=1189883687&sr=8-3)
So yeah... [:

good luck!

Again...I know this is crazy late and everything but I'm currently stocking up on different striped shirts X3

Oddly enough, right now they are in style (not just the long sleeves, but the stripes too).
You can find them at American Eagle (tons in the girls sections. They are fitted, but just a bit loose. Works well). Also, Hot Topic has them now. As does Sears. :3

Haha, isn't it always the way?

I always seem to end up doing cosplays that involve gloves in the height of summer.

I know this is really late, but while looking through a few online shops I found: https://www.toofastonline.com/p-3522-tripp-guys-striped-long-sleeve-t-shirt.aspx and they also have a black and red striped shirt. Hope this helps.
