I grabbed some my size (XXL) at Eddie Bauer the other day and they fit funny, the shoulder is cut strangely.

Anyway does Hanes make a good t shirt?

I'm looking for colors and no logos, medium weight for here in AZ.

Thanks.

I am partial to the Fruit of the Loom tshirts. I have a couple and love the fit and for like five bucks they cant be beat on the price.

I like the Hanes tagless t-shirts. I have a pile of the white ones for undershirts. I believe I have seen them in basic colors, too.

+1

I snagged a couple in dark brown to wear when outdoors great shirts. I don't know where to get them here in Az anymore though a I got a little drunk and cut the sleeves off of one to make a headband, long story.

I don't think that's the brand. I'll post the brand later tonight when I get home. I wear plain t-shirts almost all of the time. I quit buying Fruit of the Loom and Hanes because they don't last.

Me too. I use them for work shirts. They are thick enough to hold up for a while but thin enough not to roast you in summer.

I use Beefy-T's but they're not thin. But they sure do last.

Got to order me some more––the kid keeps stealing them since he's as big as I am now...

I just got some hanes at the local craft store. The come in a lot of colors and sizes, they even have womens ones. They have cotton and 50/50 poly. They were on sale for under 3 bucks this weekend so I got a bunch. I got a few orange ones for hunting season.

if you don't mind the pockets, Carhartt t-shirts are great and seem to last forever.

I like Carhart, but they're not lightweight. They do fit well, though, especially if you want tall ones. All the other tall sizes I try are not long enough to stay tucked in properly.

The Dickies brand T-shirts at Walmart are nice for work. A little heavy for hot summers, but they hold up well.

The $9.99 Russel shirts at Academy. The ones with the white tag on the left front. Best T-Shirt I have bought in a while.

I need a T-shirt that is actually a Tall after it gets washed!!!!!!

I am 6'4" tall and I can't find a tshirt that fits worth a damn. If it is long enough then it is 2 sizes too wide. If it fits right then it is too short. Freaking annoying!!!!

Big fan of Old navy Tees, they last a long time, heavier fabric than a lot of shirts. I usually spill ketchup or something on them long before they get a hole in them.

For lighter fabric I like the Hanes tagless, but eventually they get a little hole in the armpit- I have large shoulders and that seems to be the stress point on the fabric.. God, I knew I would turn into my father someday.

This is my complaint also. 6'2" here. I end up with XLs most of the time since I can never find Talls to begin with.

As far as a good brand of shirts, I mostly wear Duke or Soffee since I have a ton of them.

I used to have that problem.Gain 30 pounds or so and it goes away, worked for me.

I like Carhartts myself.

These are the shirts I wear now. They were on sale really good a few months ago and I bought a bunch. They are really nice, and plenty long.

They only problem is the smallest tall I can get is an XLXT. I really wish they did a LXT because then it wouldn't look like I am Gahndi wearing Chris Costa's shirt.

Agreed, it's so freakin' annoying when the shirt shrinks up just at the bottom. Why someone can't make a tall that will stay tall, even after being washed in cold & dryed on "fluff" is beyond me.

The Russell ones were the worst for me. Straight to Goodwill after the first wash.

I agree.


Best damn tee made.


They're an "athletic/slim" cut though so if you're not built like this.....



They may not be for you.

Look for Carhart T-shirts. The regular ones are long, and the TALL ones are even better. Fred Meyer sometimes has them on sale.

I like Carhart shirts. If you want one with no logo, then you could pick off the logo on the pocket.
