I am looking for Nice Fit, Quality made T shirts, Both 100% cotton and 50/50 blends.
5oz to 9oz
I have tried Gildan 2000 big loose neck, sloppy feel.
I'm looking for a nice fitting crew neck, tapered shoulder, sleeved to near the elbow, generous fit. nice feel to wear.
priced from $3 to $8 per T, in quantities of a case= 72 or more. per purchase.
I'd love to see a rating somewhere on here, 1 to ?
Hanes, gildans, fruitee da' loom, King fashion, etc.. I still can't find nice ones the the Nevada T's Sears sells @ $15.99 for example.
anyone..anyone..

That wouldn't help you I don't think. Many people would rate the Gildan 2000 as 5 stars because *they* think it's a great blank t-shirt :) Everyone is different.

Try American Apparel, CityLabUsa, Luxe-T, ProClub, BareApparel.com, Royal Apparel or some of the other fashion blank t-shirt vendors.

Gildan's style 64000 is a very different fit from their 2000. The 64000 is positioned as a young man's fit with a european fit. Try it and see

what is the difference between the 2000 and a shirt you really like. Neck? Collar? Sleeves? weight? body fit? quality?

yes to all.
1-Those shirts are the roughest on the skin I have EVER worn.
2- necks are Looooose and sloppy looking.
3-weight is bit heavy, but not terrible.
4-sleeve is bit short on the upper arm.
They are a Low cost, avail multi colour purposefull product. I'm not trying to bash the product.
But.. I have 200 in my store now and I would never wear one.
I sometimes wear the Gildan 8000 50/50 it has a nicer softer feel, a little better shape to the collar.
But still not a great cut to them.

I have bought some Nevada (Sears) brand of T shirts. AWESOME.
$10.99 retail and sometimes go for $5.99 sale.
I buy them up, for the price they are the Best fitting, light/mid weight 100% cotton, nice sleeves, nice collar, very tight weave, while being soft to wear.
I can't find a shirt of that quality wholesale. at $6.
:confused:

Thanks for the feedback. Not sure if you have tried the 64000 from Gildan as it was designed to touch on lots of the points you mention regarding the 2000....softer feel, different neck, sleeves, armholes etc.
The weight is lighter for sure but that is what gives you the softer feel. Gildan uses Airjet yarns on the 50/50 which is what makes it softer. They are moving that shirt as well to have wicking properties in early 2011. The label is changing from Ultra Blend to DryBlend at the same time as well.
