Is it common practice to request samples of shirts (various weights and brands) from vendors in order to determine which type would best be suited for jobs? Also, I suppose it would be a nice thing to have when talking to potential customers so that they can feel the shirt, etc.

I have worked in the print industry for 6 years and it is common for us to request paper samples so that we can see and feel the sheets...I would assume it is the same. For print...paper samples are free...are they when dealing with a garment?

If this is common practice...where would be a good place to get some samples.

yes it is common. when wanting to try a new product from our suppliers they would ask us to come to their show room so we could see the full range of products and colors/options available or a rep would come to our office. Some suppliers have given us samples to keep but that is not as common as buying them yourself for your showroom/catalog to offer to your clients.

As Splat said, it is best to buy some samples to do wash tests (and any other tests you want to do).
