On an off day, you are just passing around the market to buy a perfect shirt for yourself and this hoarding of buy 2 and get 1 free catches your attention.

You storm into the store like its an offer for life and return back home with a huge bag like you have just won a lottery.
Next morning you put those shirts around and you realize
a. The collars aren’t comfortable for your neck
b. The sides are kinda loose/ your just too open that your vest is peeping out of your shirt buttons
c. Your shoulder lines are dropping
And in short the fit sucks.
