I've tried Pro Club, Pro 5, Luxe-T, AAA, & Champs brand.

Pro Club - great before you wash them. Then the neck stretches out.
Pro 5 - very good shirt but the neck is a little loose for me. The neck is thick and keeps its shape. They are nice and thick like pro club.
Luxe-T - these actually make me mad haha. I love the neck and soft feel, but from what I've read, they dont come in tall sizes. The maker just doesnt want to do it. The fit is a little weird too. They are thick too.
AAA - Average at best. Not as thick as the previous brands. Big neck. Weird fit.
Champs - avoid.

I'm getting a few Galaxy brand tees in soon. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

P.S. I read that Comin'OutSwingin was making his own tall tee or something along those lines. Anybody have anymore info on this?

Yes, still in the works. But for the moment, I'm only going to be using them for my line.

I have plans in the future to sell them as blanks, though.

It's just that I would need so many. With the different sizes and colors that I would need, it's just cost prohibitive for me to start to sell blanks and make a good profit from it.

But stay tuned...

i've heard good things about Galaxy but I've also heard bad things...too thin, neck becomes weak after a wash.

Do you put your ProClubs in the dryer?

I hope not!

Don't dry them!

Also, iron them inside-out.

I've got proclubs that are over a year old, and the neck is still the same as when it was new.

hard to beat the Beefy tee from Hanes Printable....6.1 oz ringspun...comes in about 30 colors up to 4xl..

You need to look at Zorrel (www.zorrel.com). They have a cotton performance tee that's probably the best in the market and the neck keeps its shape. They have it in short sleeve (z100) and long sleeve (z700).

All in which Gildan you use. I use the 2000. NO problem with the neck stretching out of shape no matter if they are dried in a dryer or not. In fact, I purposely wash my personal ones with normal laundry and dry them normal with no distortion. The 2000 is a 6.1 oz T. Walgreens has the thinner Gildan I believe. As in anything there are grades.

I mentioned Zorrels Z100 and Z700. Well they have a very nice basic tee too (6.0oz). It's the Z880. It's better then the Gildan 2000 and quite honestly priced better.

Price has to be a factor here as well, you can't compare Pro Club to Alstyle and to Gildan as the price is more. Also Beefy T costs considerably more to the other shirts. White shirts can be tricky - beefy t's shrink up considerably and I can't even believe that some of you like Gildan 2000 over Alstyle 1301. Gildan would be my last choice for quality and consistency, especially the neckline. I push all my clients toward AAA with no complaints from them. Just my 2 cents..
