This forum is great for all T-shirt moguls. From what I read it seems most people prefer to use Heavy, thick, beefy....or whatever you want to call it over soft lighter t-shirts. The assumption seems to be that they are of better quality. From my experience with buying T's at retail shops, I feel most T-shirts out there are light and of good quality. Polo, Nautica, Gap, Guess all mostly use lighter shirts. I have had some of theese for over 2 years and still look great.
