I'm the same way. It gets so cold here, and while I'm not a hairy person, it's like a little layer of warmth..

He's so pretty with his long hair, I love it.
I would say clothes with no sleeves is your best bet. Most of obi's shirts and sweaters are sleeveless or with very loose sleeves.

Shelly, I have the same problem with Bailey when he wears anything with sleeves. I just buy tanks now. I also make sure none of the long hair is caught up under his shirt. I take a brush and brush it all down.

You can try shaving the "armpit" area? I read somewhere about doing that and I've always done it for Cici. She's never had any matts in that area but she mostly wears dresses, not shirts.
My sister's Yorkie only wears tanks though, because sleeve shirts also make him matt, so maybe go that route or trim just that area
