Its a $15 shirt. Chill out.
Everlane T-shirts - Page 196
The Hanes tees I used to have had really thick collars. I prefer thinner collars like Everlane's. Maybe we're talking about different versions here though.
Kohl's used to sell these "Hanes Classic Comfort Soft" (or something like that) pocket tees in tons of different colors, and they've been my go-to t-shirt for the past 5 years or so. Seems they've been discontinued though, which is really aggravating.
I saw those at meijer two weeks ago. about $25 for a 3 pack IIRC.
No, the shirts I'm talking about aren't sold by the pack--they're sold individually and in many colors. They have pockets and aren't meant to be undershirts, and are made of a thicker and softer cotton than the "comfort soft" undershirts.
Oh, OK. I got the "comfort soft" ones to use for undershirts. The "classic" ones were about twice as expensive so I thought it might be what you were looking for.
I finally took advantage of the Everlane free shipping and ordered 3 of the crew tees. Out of the box the fabric feels very nice, nicer than J.Crew slim fit tees (if I could find a better tee I would buy it elsewhere, esp. something U.S. made). At first wearing I did not like the fit - chest is too tight compared to the waist, as others have pointed out. However the fabric is super stretchy and the chest loosened up nicely after a few wears. But that stretchiness has its drawbacks - the collar is pretty awful. Over the course of a single wearing the neck will stretch significantly and look messy. Tees should be clean and simple, not saggy and loose, so it's a serious flaw imo. It's cotton, I shouldn't have to baby it. I'm going to keep trying them out for a while, but will probably avoid buying any more shirts from Everlane.
I am very satisfied with a Hanes Beefy T I got as a gift, but they recently changed production and many report the newer stuff is not of the same quality of the past.
To me it is very important a T-shirt is of a heavy fabric, ringspun and has narrow sleeves.
What and what not is true for your shirts?
I received the heather gray crewneck t-shirt in the mail today along with a white crewneck. The heather gray is substantially slimmer. It also has quite a bit of twisting in the body, the side seams are not straight down the sides. Is this just a consequence of whatever production methods they're using? Thinking about returning it.
ETA: Everlane says the side seams are a defect and is giving me credit for a new shirt. Great customer service!
