MrLuna said:Hey Involuntary, Take a look at the ones im looking at, http://www.jiffyshirts.com/cart/which one fits this style :
Involuntary said:Seems like you have a good one on Gildan Soft Style.It's longer than the standard, has slightly a slimmer fit, sleeves are a bit thighter. Obscure, what model are you going for?
Obscure said:Gildan ultra navy blue is my favourite fitting tee. Getting really sick of gildan soft mixing old and new stock so the collars and feel of tee varies all the time!
mrgalati said:There are a couple different "types" of tees in the wholesale apparel industry that are used in indie brands:Traditional cut/fit -Examples: Gildan 2000, 5000, 8000 / Anvil 779, 979These are standard sized, "boxy" cut, with traditionally knit jersey cotton. These range from 5.5oz to 6oz and are usually 100% cotton (except the G8000 from the above examples). You probably already own a bunch of this type of t-shirt - typically "promotional" t-shirts are printed on these styles. You'll find them all over in retail, especially sporting goods stores and big box stores (Wal-Mart, etc)Fashion fit -Examples: American Apparel 2001, Tultex 0202TC, Anvil 980, Gildan 64000These have a more slim fit cut - usually targeted at a younger demographic. These are usually in the 4-4.5oz range and usually ringspun cotton - basically, thinner, softer, and preferred by screen printers. They also tend to be more expensive than the traditional styles. These often also have tear away tags for easy relabeling. Most of the brands that you'll find on this site sell their designs on this type of shirt. They're also found in the retail world (Hot Topic, etc) and in band merchandise. There are obviously many other brands/styles that I didn't mention above - those just tend to be the ones that I'm most familiar with.
The Tulex look good, I haven't found a decent supplier for them. Anyone have a suggestion? Maybe that's a good topic for another thread.
American Apparel - avoid: Don't build your brand using a blank (product) that is likely to go out of business in the next year. Not only are they over rates and over priced, their competition is getting stiff and they have a lot of legal problems because the ceo/founder has several sexual assault charges against him.
Awesome info!!!, just wondering when topics like this come up. How come no one ever throws Alstyle (AAA) into the mix? Do their shirts suck?

Do their shirts suck?I see Alstyle mentioned all the time on this site. Reputable brand with solid products, from what I hear, but since they're one of my competitors, I typically won't be recommending them. :) All due respect, though.
Obscure said:Im really liking B&C at the moment thinking about doing my next release on them.
May I ask where do you work? I may want to get pricing info from you. I am still deciding on some shirts (Despite the fact I picked up a pallet of AAA's for dirt cheap).
