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?

Thanks Victor

The most famous fitted shirt ever is American Apparel 2001. Gildan Softstyle is fitted, as is Hanes 4980 and other many other brands.

Ringspun cotton is supersoft and gets softer with each was. 50/50 blends can also be pretty soft and lightweight.
