Are the 220GSM ones comparable to the supreme pocket cut&sew tees?

If you're talking about the £56 Supreme summer tees, I've got those and the Arket 220. Going by feel the 220 is probably like 30-40% thinner. The 220 does the job as a basic tee and fits well, but personally I prefer something closer to weight of the Supreme tee.

150s are good as undershirt. 170 is not worth bothering imo.

I've been looking for similar to the Supreme tees but haven't found anything. Someone on here recommended Hanes Beefy, but I didn't rate the quality or fit tbh. If anyone has ideas gimme a shout please.

Cheers mate, exactly the info I was looking for. Yeah looking for the ones that don't fall under the 't-shirts' category on their webstore, but the 'tops & sweaters' category.

Would also appreciate a recommendation for a t shirt with similar weight to the supreme heayvweight tees

Yeah another vote for their medium weight ones, their heavier ones don’t feel all that nice. Long sleeves in the medium weight are nice, bit of a silky/mercerised quality to them

for t shirts like supreme pocket tees, try camber maxweight. I have a wtaps shirt printed on to camber and it feels pretty close to the supreme tees I have.
