T-shirts. We wear them all the time, and most of us never really give them a second thought. But if you’ve worn a Sheargear™ tee, you know that not all t-shirts are created equal. And what is great for one situation, design, or outfit may not work for another.
While this may not be THE DEFINITIVE guide to tees, hopefully it will answer some of your
questions and help you choose the right tee for you.
Most tees are either 100% cotton, or a cotton blend. 100% cotton shirts and products are soft and comfortable. A polyester and cotton blend will have the comfort of cotton with the crease resistance of polyester, giving you a comfortable wash-and-wear garment that is less likely to shrink or stain. A tri-blend of cotton, polyester, and rayon gives you durability, ultra-softness, and resilience against wrinkles. And a spandex/cotton blend will be slightly stretchy but breathable, making it a great choice for sports clothing.
Sheargear™ uses 100% cotton as well as cotton blends. The choice often depends on the fit and style of the shirt as well as the print style and design used.
- Regular / Men’s Fit: This is a standard unisex shirt. It drapes straight from the shoulders and chest.
- Women’s Fitted: This is a shirt that is shaped to fit a woman’s body. It curves in at the waist. Women who don’t want a tight fit may wish to size up one when ordering.
- Flowy: A loose, comfortable, yet flattering fit for women.
- V-Neck: A neckline which dips in the front to a point instead of a normal rounded neckline; watch for “deep V” in the descriptions.
- Crew Neck: Hight, rounded neckline.
- Scoob Neck: A rounded neckline that dips lower and wider than normal.
- Off-Shoulder: A rounded neckline that is wide enough to be pulled to one side or the other to hang off the shoulder.
