I have a terrible time finding undershirts/t-shirts that fit correctly and don't shrink. I've tried all the brands and usually come away disappointed. Or, I find something that works and it gets discontinued. In most cases, I end up buying 95/5 cotton/spandex t-shirts, but I've grown tired of paying absurd amounts of money for quality versions of that type of t-shirt. So, I've been trying traditional cotton shirts again.
I recently ordered Fruit of the Loom stay tucked t-shirts and while even after washing them, they still fit, they all shrank quite a bit. That leads me to these and FINALLY, I've once again found an undershirt/t-shirt that fits right and doesn't shrink.
Pit to Pit- 21 inches
Top of collar to bottom front- 28 inches
Top of collar to bottom back- 30 inches
1. While these are spot on for me, if you're a true 44 inch chest or over 6'2", it may be best for you to size up one. However, if you're a 41-43 inch chest and between 5'10"-6'1" with an average to slightly long chest, these will work nicely for you. As for the few reviewers claiming these run large, that's absolutely not the case.
2. The sleeves are definitely short.
3. The material is well made but thinner. Also, the entire shirt is almost perforated in design throughout for breath-ability. These will work well as an undershirt or as a casual shirt, but don't expect to be wearing this under a blazer or with a nice pair of jeans for a classic look because it's just too thin.
4. I washed these right away after measuring them. I washed them in cold water, casual cycle and dried them medium heat for 35 minutes. All three still measure 21/28/30. I almost consider this a Christmas morning type of moment for me.
In sum, these are perfect for me. Sizing wise, if you're on the very upper end of a large, you may indeed want to move up one unless you like your shirts to fit very slim. As for material quality, it's great but quite thin and again, the sleeves are definitely shorter than a typical t-shirt. For me, I'm in love with these and after this review I'm going to go order a dozen or so more because they really tick off what I want in an undershirt. So, I absolutely recommend these emphatically.
