I've looked everywhere for the last coupla months for a men's t-shirt pattern I could knit in a sport-weight yarn. Having found nothing I will eventually attempt to do this by adapting a top-down crew neck sweater pattern I found and just stop the sleeves a third of the way down or so.
Any other brilliant ideas? Anyone actually have a pattern?

The plan of stopping the sleeves a third of the way down makes sense to me. You may want to change the the sleeve decrease rate if you do.
Do you know the book "Knitting from the Top" by Barbara Walker? She tells you everything you need to know to make any custom garment from the top down. If you understand the book, you'd never need another pattern.
