very little, my pocket tees havent really shrunk at all.
Also necks stay perfect not like mccoys and the cotton stays a bit coarse, great quality.

Serbia velvasheen are the truth brother.
Mccoys are on a saggy neck vibe after few washes
Velvasheen get better and better
Feel to cop more and ditch all other loop wheel tees

Velva Sheen tees are really good quality. Hold up well after washing repeatedly as well. Garbstore have single tees for sale for £33, but they aren't pocket tees.

Having worn the McCoys a bit now I have to say they're not great. Haven't washed enough to comment on the neck mis shaping but the fit and quality just isn't there for the dough. Actually prefer wearing my £3 continentals.

Dickies aren't too bad, they're thick and you can pull the little dickies tab off the bottom. £6 each from the Dickies shop in the Lowry Centre in about 6 different colours.

I said it before, but the best bang for your buck are the £10 Uniqlo tees. They're great for the price and hold up well.

J-Crew also have loads of colours in for a score - ain't tried them yet though.

Yeah mate, they're wicked. Like someone else said, they retain that course texture and fit stays on point. Also can be bagged for like £2-3 on Amazon I believe

in terms of weight and quality these are the best CHEAP tshirts I've tried. I just get mad sleeve flair so can't wear them Sad so i have Gildan ones instead. weight isnt as good but fit me much better

Just got the Hanes Beefy & Fruit of the Loom Premium / Supreme - both are quality, The Fruit of the Loom fits the best: nice and slim (I'm a regular medium / just under 6ft); the Hanes Beefy is the thickest t-shirt I've ever come across, the cotton is good quality as well. The fit is weird though: it's slim in the chest and waist, but quite large on the shoulders and the sleeves are huge: I had to triple roll the sleeves, but it looks good. I don't think skinny guys would get on with them though to be honest - I think they'd find it a bit too big? It's also pretty long, so it might not be the greatest for shorter blokes. If you're stocky though / got a large frame they'd be top dollar for you I reckon. They'd look the business.

But overall Fruit of the Loom gets my vote - great fit and for about £2 you can't complain. Loads of colours as well.
