Really??? Nobody sells fitted tees?
I've used district tees too. Only they don't have spandex in them. I was thinking of getting some Active basic. However they have tees with 5% spandex and some with 8% spandex. Anyone use either of them? If so, is there a big difference?DT234v and similar, LST700 all from Sanmar.
I just got a few sample shirts made by Devon and Jones I (DP155W from Alpha Broder). They are 97% cotton and 3% spandex. Soft, comfortable, and fit very well on women who do not have teenage bodies. They are pricey however.I'm still searching for thick soft women's tees that are more true to size, but even if it's not, I'm looking for fitted tees that have spandex in the blend and are thick and soft (not hard like Gildan) or thin like Alstyle, AA, LAT, etc.
If you've felt the material from the White Stag tees at Walmart, that's the material I'm speaking about.
My supplier just told me the D&J DP155W is being replaced by the DP182W. It's lighter, has a different composition, longer, and a few bucks more expensive. They just couldn't leave a good thing alone. Now I'll have to get samples of the new one to see how they fit/feel/look.Going to try these DJ . I sell mostly to mature women. Sounds good
The women who tested the DP155W thought the quality and fit justified a higher price. The DP 182W that replaces it is much thinner and more expensive. Since replacement products are generally downgrades from the original, it may no longer be a good option.Wow, I just looked up DP182W. $17 wholesale is not economical when trying to resell.
Well, I'm certainly interested.Hi @jasmynn, I used to use the SAAD lycra shirts and I love them. Unfortunately they are no longer going to be making them because sales are not working out for them. By far, they are the best ladies fitted t's I've ever used. I started a thread a few weeks ago trying to see if I can get a few individuals together to see if we can get quantity totals up enough to do factory direct. USwholdsale direct used to carry them. I think I bought all that they had left.
In my search for a similar shirt I came across Ambiance apprel out of cali, their shirts seem pretty good and the next best thing that I have found and their cost is very reasonable.
Hope this information is helpful.
If you want to look into getting the SAAD lycra shirts and want to participate in a buy, I usually use about 40-45 dozen a year. It is a lot to buy at once, but if we can get a group together; I believe the guy said we needed to order about 200 dozen for the manufacturer to even talk to us. So if we can get about 8-10 individuals interested, we may be able to get some great quality lycra t-shirts! What are your thoughts?
The DP 182W is showing 10.99 on Broder.The women who tested the DP155W thought the quality and fit justified a higher price. The DP 182W that replaces it is much thinner and more expensive. Since replacement products are generally downgrades from the original, it may no longer be a good option.
If your supplier is quoting that as a wholesale price, he is robbing you - get a new supplier! A lot of places throw the term 'wholesale" around and it means nothing. My supplier has the DP155W at closeout prices (which I can't quote on the forum) so check around.
I was purchasing 1 doz for $36. I do not have the bulk/direct purchase price, but it has to be quite a bit less than that. I don't mind $3/shirt door to door.
Ok, that's great. Does the Ambiance Apparel have a website?I was purchasing 1 doz for $36. I do not have the bulk/direct purchase price, but it has to be quite a bit less than that. I don't mind $3/shirt door to door.
