I still think Hanes & Fruit of the Loom Super Premium are the best of the bunch for what's available in the UK, with Hanes being the clear favourite, with both being 6oz - but the two best made in USA t-shirts are considered to be these two:

http://www.camberusa.com/max-weight.php

Camber ones are 8oz & you can them for $20

And these:

http://www.goodwear.com/short-sleeve-crew-neck-heavyweight-jersey/

These are 7oz and they're $28

I haven't tried either one yet - I'm waiting for measurements on the Camber and then I'll have a crack at them.

Just an amalgam of different sources when I've been looking into it. There's no single authority on these things and of course there never will be - though Camber & Goodwear consistently crop up as the best made in USA t-shirts available: there's a reason why the Japs import them for retail.

I've never come across another 8oz t shirt, for example, I think it's the heaviest you can get anywhere.

Fairly sure the 3sixteen heavyweights I have are 9oz.

Bought a few of the kith ones the other day. Shipping is rape but they're nice fabric, and good quality and fit. Decent length too (no homo).

Goodwear are great for the money but the neck holes are abit too big, and sizing is sometimes inconsistent. I really like the bamboo ones though

These look good. But a 3000yen shipping fee.

Dunno if this is the right thread, searched for last kith post…

Any idea why I get "There are no shipping methods available for your cart or destination." on the site?

What am I doing wrong and how much is it normally?

Fit on the Hanes beefy tee is awful. Worst of any. Really long in body, sleeves too long, tight around body but massive around shoulders. Pity cos the fabric is great, really heavy.

Agreed on albam fit. Similar to uniqlo. The thin albam tees shrink a bit and neck goes to shit after a wash.

What do you expect for £1.50?

I've tried shitloads of brands over the past few years and have to say the YMC slub pocket tees are the best I've owned. Fit is bang on for me and they wash ridiculously well. Had one for about 3 years must have washed hundreds of times and still fits the same, they fade and age really well too. Nothing else comes close for me and i've tried velva/sunspel/uniqlo/3sixteen/real mccoys/gildans/hanes/albam. Pick them up in the sales for 20-30 a piece, well worth the investment

Anywhere you can buy TFH t shirts in the uk apart from that place Rubién linked?

What are iron heart tees like, I'm not convinced by the fit pics I've seen.

was about to buy a couple of Good Wear t-shirts from Aero Clothing, until I saw the postage costs - £12.50. Note that I am in the UK.

Sleeves flare a bit unless you have arms like Ruben…had to get mine tailored. Can't fault the quality/durability of the IH loopwheeled tees though.

^^ Why would you tailor a t-shirt !?

If the sleeves flare - which they do majorly on the Hanes t-shirts - then just roll the sleeves, surely?

Rolled sleeves look shit, why not spend a couple of quid to sort it out?
