These shirts are great for my son
5
from Donna on Tue, Sep. 26, 2006

These shirts are great for my son. He is hard on his clothes and the Hanes beefy cotton tee shirts are beyond compare. I am unable to find them nearby. If I do, they are considerably more expensive. I think that these shirts were tagless, something that my son prefers. The shirts hold up over many washings and fit him comfortably at the neck which is something he is finicky about.

Great for heat transfers
5
from Scotty on Tue, Oct. 31, 2017

I ordered these shirts to apply heat transfer vinyl on for my nephew starting kindergarten this year. They were just as heavy as standard cotton tees like Gildan's G500, but the texture/feel was much softer and smoother. They took htv extremely well and fit great. I was very happy with the end result. The prices are very competitive with other standard tees. While Hanes adult shirts run higher than their counterparts, I was surprised to be able to get the youth sizes lower than their competitors. This is a better quality shirt for sure compared to the other lower priced tees.

Not a fan
3
from Samantha on Thu, Apr. 26, 2018

I needed this for a girl that wears 14/16 size girl clothes, the mom wanted XS in adult but it wasn't available in the Coral color she wanted. I tried these because it was the closet I could get to the color and size. The XL youth size is HUGE, Bigger than the Small Adult size. I reordered in Large, and I still think it's way too big. I probably won't use them because they're just not going to work for what we were planning. The quality is fine, very heavy cotton fabric, stiffer though. I wouldn't order these again. I've submitted a picture for size comparison, the Gray in front is an Adult Size Small in another brand.

from Tina on Fri, June 23, 2017

I bought the shirts for my first grade students for field day. They fit true to size and color as shown in the picture. The shirts seem to be quality material and worked well for painting stencil lettering. I cannot comment on shrinkage or durability because I do not have the shirts to wash, as they were all given out to students. The price was awesome, under $2 per shirt, exactly what I was looking for, and couldn't find anywhere else!

from Candace on Wed, June 6, 2018

I use my shirts for business, the first time I ordered everything was Great! But on this order...my ..shirts were delayed by the company 1 day then UPS didn't deliver it until a week later, I would have missed my deadline if I had not find a different alternate. I do enjoy ordering from the company and the quality of the shirts are ok, 2 of the shirts had a stain and holes but I don't expect that to stop me from ordering at the moment.

I bought a rainbow of colors (literally) in an assortment of sizes - one for each of my 5 girls
5
from Tracy on Fri, Nov. 21, 2008

I bought a rainbow of colors (literally) in an assortment of sizes - one for each of my 5 girls. We used them for a family portrait and then we decorated them and had a fashion show. The girls loved every step of the process!!! The color choice is outstanding. The price is perfect, esp when having to get many shirts. The quality is great. A friend had recommended you and I will be sure to recommend you to others.

Our daughter's preschool has decided to go with uniform colors this year, so after looking everywhere for any kind of shirts that would be small enough for her in the colors needed, we found your internet site. The shirts are great, very comfortable, and easy to get clean. They actually fit her, unlike many of the shirts we saw in retail stores.

We used the product for a family portrait
5
from Sandy on Mon, Nov. 24, 2008

We used the product for a family portrait. Each set of grandkids was in a different color. My oldest son wanted to wear orange (for the Bengals) and you were one of the few places I could find orange in his size. The pictures turned out great and the shirts were wonderful. Thanks so much, my parents loved the picture for their 50th.

Nice shirt for htv
4
from Latisha on Fri, Oct. 6, 2017

When it comes to youth shirts the sizing can normally be off by a little or a lot. I find that the Hanes fit is better than the gildan brand. I order a lot of youth shirts for personalizing with HTV. My daughter is normally a 7/8 in girls Hanes shirts but I purchased a smaller size in the Beefy T and it fit her perfectly

We used the t-shirts for our class field trip to the zoo. I loved that I was able to find bright colors and various sizes for the students. I also loved the fact that they shipped in a well timely manner. We had to purchase the t-shirts for the students so the price was affordable for us.

I am so glad I found your site. I have always had trouble finding proper fitting t-shirts, but yours are just right. I purchased the hefty youth and the adult medium and they were both perfect. They wash and dry very nicely. Thank you very much. I will purchase more in the future.

Black Hanes are a basic
5
from Susan on Fri, June 1, 2018

I have used black Beefy-T's for years for our students for costumes as well as for screen printing. The weight and quality is really superior. They do run long, and snug through the hips, so not a great fit for teenage girls, always good for the boys.

from Randye on Wed, May 26, 2010

No shrinkage, no fading, great weight. Ordered size 6-8 for both 4&1/2 and 6&1/2 yr old. Perfect on the 4 yr old, should have ordered a size up on the 6 yr old. Still fits, but won't for long. My own fault. Great shirts.

Multiple shirts of this brand came with holes in the armpit. I didn't think to check them before making orders and mailing out. So I ate the cost of these junk shirts plus shipping 2x. I'll never purchase again

from Kim on Mon, Jan. 28, 2019

I used this shirt for Heat Transfer Vinyl, and it took really well! The shirt is a little thicker than your regular basic tshirts, and I like that aspect of it! The color is perfect! It runs true to size!

Great Thick Shirt
5
from Marisela on Thu, Apr. 20, 2017

Didn't realize the shirt was supposed to be thick until I received and went back to look at the description on my order.
I'm sure the shirt will last a long time.
Probably not best for the Texas heat.

Doesn't shrink after washing
5
from Renee on Thu, May 27, 2010

Doesn't shrink after washing. These are great shirts for kids wear. The neck is a little tighter on these than other brands, the size and quality of the t-shirts make heat imprinting easier.
