The most famous fitted shirt ever is American Apparel 2001. Gildan Softstyle is fitted, as is Hanes 4980 and other many other brands.Dear Reader,
I am based with my embroidery / printing company in the Netherlands (europe).
Over here I cannot find but I neither see them on USA trade shows:
Blank soft fitted men's T-shirts.
I used to buy these T-shirts at Ruehl's (they had +/- 20 shops which are no longer in business but they were part of the A&F group). I bought over the years maybe 15 pieces of these China made T-shirts as I could not find them wholesale anywhere (crazy of course for someone selling many T-shirts each year). Now I also want to offer them to my customers.
The shirts have a fitted model and have a weight of about 200 gr/m2. So not as heavy as a Beefy T-shirt. It feels like Pima cotton but I don't think they are. Probably the cotton had a very special treatment. Even after 100 washings they are still perfect. They were sold for about $ 30 to $ 35 retail with a print.
Any textile technician / expert out there who knows what kind of cotton was used and if these shirts are for wholesale somewhere?
Ringspun cotton is supersoft and gets softer with each was. 50/50 blends can also be pretty soft and lightweight.
