A "shirt fight" is a very brief type of fight that
occurs when two parties
begin to get aggressive with
eachother, yelling first
and then usually one or both
hold of the others shirt and yanks at it or uses it to shake that
person they are yelling at. A "shirt fight" differs
from a "fist fight" in that
no physical blows are thrown, but cannot simply be defined as an argument because it usually results in a ripped/stretched shirt.
