You may not want to take a strip off the bottom because the grain will most likely go in a different direction and may cause a load of other problems.

Just because you can fit into the shirt does not mean it fits you (as you already know.) A general rule of thumb is to take you chest measurement and add 10" to get the size for mail armor.
