Good quality

from Tristan on Tue, Sep. 22, 2020

Had to use this brand's Heather Mustard since it's an extremely popular color with Bella+Canvas. meaning it's so hard to get ahold of right now. I was very pleasantly surprised by the color, it's a true mustard and material is so so soft! Doesn't have the exact same fit as B+C, which is obviously because it's not, but a perfect replacement!

Perfect For Bleaching
5
from Stephanie on Fri, July 23, 2021

I bought this shirt to bleach and it bleached perfectly! the fit after washing was a little tighter that before. if you want a loose fit size up. This Tee is super soft. I have ordered more because i love them! Great quality and great price!

Unique, beautiful color with gray marbling /heathering
5
from Amber on Mon, May 3, 2021

The color is beautiful and has gray marbling /heathering. It's like a light pink with a hint of purple. Very unique color, heat presses very well. Not super soft but nice material.

These shirts are wonderful, well made, wash well. They are as advertised, colors are bright and fit perfectly. I am a female and the XL are longer in length and arms cover more of my upper arms. I love them and will continue to buy them and the price cannot be beat!

Great Shirt

from Bernadette on Tue, Mar. 30, 2021

This shirt worked great for a fundraiser shirt that I did. I bleached and sublimated and it came out great! These are not as soft as the Gildan softstyle, as expected but a nice quality shirt.

I wanted this for a teacher t-shirt and the Bella Canvas green wasn't the right color for me --- this was just as soft and pretty close to the same as Bella Canvas.
