T-shirt Sizing

T-shirt Fit Comparison

 

One of the questions that arises most often when someone is tasked with ordering tees for a group is, “How do they fit?”, or “Are they true to size?”

It can be a difficult question for the organizer to answer because there is not really an established  benchmark.  However, the person inquiring is likely wondering about the fit as compared to a particular style they are familiar with.  If so, this series of tables may be a helpful overview for those organizing group orders.

A good way to use the tables is to find a t-shirt the person is familiar with and locate an option that is either larger or smaller based on your colleague’s requirements.  

Within the men's and ladies' tabs, the tables are broken down by t-shirt weight.  

Each t-shirt style also has the fabric composition listed.

100% Cotton

Pros: Most breathable, naturally moisture absorbent

Cons: Can shrink (some items are pre-shrunk to reduce future shrinkage), can fade

 

100% Polyester 

Pros: Most durable, maintains vibrant colors, does not shrink

Cons: Not naturally breathable (some styles have a tight mesh construction to improve breathability), not naturally moisture absorbent (some styles are constructed to wick moisture away from the skin), can snag (some styles are constructed to be snag resistant)

 

Blends

Pros: Depends on the composition of the blend - offers many of the benefits of both fabrics in the blend, can be blended with fabrics like rayon or spandex (stretch) to provide additional performance features

Cons: Depends on the composition of the blend - tends to be less breathable than 100% cotton (some styles are constructed to improve breathability), less durable and fade resistant than 100% polyester

 

If you have a specific t-shirt in mind that is not shown in the table, we can provide the fit chart to you and add it to the table for future reference.
