T-shirts: A Fit Guide

The T-shirt, seemingly omni present through time and as if there may never have been an era in human history when they did not accompany us, much like our long time best friends, the dog.  But such is not the case and thankfully we do not live in the time before tee's existed, because they are great.  That being said, they come in many shapes and sizes (just like we do) so here is our simple navigational tool to help you find the right tee here at Freeman.

 

We carry a variety of brands so we will break this down by brand and basic fit characteristics

Model is 5'10" 155 lbs and wearing size M

We crafted the Essential Tee to be the most middle of the road tee in our lineup. The goldilocks of tshirts, if you will. Not too long or short, not too wide or slim. The fabric is your most basic 100% cotton jersey, with a classic ribbed neck. Available in three custom, pigment dyed colors.

The Basic Tee by Jungmaven is our lightest weight tee. Coming in at 3.6oz, this cotton forward hemp blend (70/30) is super breathable and flowy. The Jungmaven tees run the slimmest and the longest of all our brands, making them a popular choice for taller and or slimmer folks, or those who just like their tees a little longer.

The Baja Tee is the heavier of our two Jungmaven tees. Coming in at 7oz, this 55% Hemp/45% Organic Cotton blend is one of their most popular fabrics. Along with the heavier weight of this tee comes a great drape, as well as increased opacity. As with the Basic Tee, choose Jungmaven if you prefer a slimmer, longer cut t-shirt.

The Pigment Dyed Pocket Tee (PDPT) has a cult following here at Freeman. We order this shirt season after season and the people just cannot get enough. This style runs a bit short but is average in width (so not too boxy.) The super thick, stiff pigment dyed cotton will loosen up with wash and wear, but to keep it in tip-top shape we recommend washing it cold and drying on low.

The Rolled Tee has a solid fan base as well. Made in the signature Velva Sheen way (knit without any side seams,) this very soft, lighweight, 100% cotton tee has a bit of a slub texture in the weave. It runs shorter than all of our other shirts, though as you can see its no crop top. This year we offer Peach and Lagoon as our seasonal colors, but the Black and White make the perfect underlayers for sweaters.

We finish out the line with the Short Sleeve Pocket Tee by Jackman. Representing the most Japanese designed inspired, most street style(ish) fitting tee in our offering, we love the boxy, slightly oversized cut of this shirt. Average in length but wider than the Essential Tee or Velva Sheen tees, this polished top will elevate sweats but can hang cool with any jeans or pants. Made of a midweight, 100% cotton fabric, it also features a ribbed neckline.
