    T-shirts/undershirts- $11/4

    I'm kinda a big guy, have to wear a 2XL shirt because of my broad shoulders and slight beer gut. I normally wear flannel shirts or fleece pullovers and wear an undershirt or t-shirt underneath. Problem I have is that when I'm carrying, the t-shirt becomes untucked.
    Anyhow, while out at WallyWorld yesterday, I saw some Fruit of the Loom 2XL t-shirts/undershirts that have "generous length". Figured what the heck and picked up a pack.
    I've been wearing one today while carrying and its really comfortable and it hasn't untucked at all. The length is very generous. I will definately get a couple more packs. For the price, ya can't beat it!

    Just wanted to pass along the product and "field report"

    We get involved with printing T shirts etc.......In the UK I try and avoid Fruit of the Loom as they tend to shrink no matter what wash you use..........

    Just my 2 cents!!

    My wife does silk screening and embrodery so I know about the various brands of shirts to look out for.
    FotL shrinks when you put them in the dryer. I let mine airdry on a hanger, never had any problems or issues. I also wash them in cold water.

    skip the dryer

    I too mostly use cold water in the machine and hang dry. I always figure that the dryer is slowly destroying your clothes, based on the lint it generates.

    A bit more expensive but I'm sold on 5.11 Tees. I've been wearing them for over a year and they have never shrunk and the collar doesn't stretch. Surprized how well they wear - bought three packs of three and have one pack that hasn't been opened yet.
    Its a shame that youth is wasted on the young.

    Really???

    I tried a pack of 2XL's and I was very impressed with them when I got them out of the package for the feel of the material and the size looked perfect. But after the first wash and dry,.... bigtime shrinkage!! Gave them to my 15 yr old step-son who wears a large and they fit him.

    I was really disappointed.

    I 've been getting FTL A-shirts XXL and haven't had a problem with shrinkage. But they will tear if you catch them wrong between holster and gun. Big complaint is that they package black and grey together so I eat 50% loss off the top. As I only want the black since they go better with my ninja outfits.
