Got the tees today, nice fit/fabric
Quality seems ok, but for this price they're really nice

Are those the 170's?

Tried some 170 arket T's, thought the fit was horrible, too long, arms are very wide and flappy and the t is far too see through, only good for an undershirt IMO.

^Doesn’t sound like the mid weight ones at all. Definitely not see through in any shape or form. Only thing I agree with is that they are a touch long.

Them being long makes them perfect for me. I have a few different colours, no chance them being see through

ThiS is what I'm talking about! 20% off and free shipping on first order with a code and I have 3 t-shirts for less than £30. Brilliant.

Until 10/06 3 for 2 on all tees, welcome bonus works too so 3 of the 170gsm £19.20 delivered. What’s the fit like on these?

oh shit I didn't see any 3 for 2 offer. Oh well, still happy with the price I paid. Fit is nice, I'm tall (6ft5) and skinny (85kg) and the t shirt fits snugly around the neck, with a good length on the arms and waist.

edit: also the 170gsm are in no way see through, they are opaque white.

Bored of plain tshirts, can anyone point me in the direction of some tshirts with graphics/prints on them that won’t break the bank. Not after anything in particular, just something a bit more interesting than a plain tshirt.

Looked on mr porter and end and there’s not much that stands out.

bought both the 170 and 220 tees from Arket, to see which one I liked better (they have a 30 day satisfaction guarantee thing).

220gsm isnt that much better considering the £7 price hike over the 170gsm.

Jumped on the FUK hype train but backing the 170's - ain't feeling 'em at all unfortunately.

Received the Arket 170 gsm today, fit fine for me, good neck and sleeve length. Don't think they're too long and i am about 5 foot 8/9 and definitely not see through, other people who have said that must have tried on a different style. All i'd say is that it is a little thin but not enough for me to send back, generally pretty pleased

Picked up 200gsm Arket tees from the Bluewater store at the weekend. They're running a 3 for 2 promotion on them so paid £30 for all three. Very comfy, great fit and feel nice too.

Look great fresh, start to bobble bad after couple washes.

What size have people gone for? Ordered one 220 in large just to try it out, but it wasn’t that long at all. Now trying XL next, but a bit worried of the width. Are those 170s the same fit? I’m around 194/95 for reference.

And what do people think of Asket? Are they any good, as they have that longer body option, but the price is double of the arket ones.

the fit on 220 is a bit boxier than the 170. I am your height and have gone for L in 170. Got a couple of XLs too for slumping about the house in
