T-Shirt Field Guide
Feeling lost and a little overwhelmed when it comes to choosing a brand and style of t-shirt?
It took us years to uncover our favorites. We considered fit, feel, value, and durability when selecting these shirts. We’ve named 4 different shirts by 4 different brands. Gildan, Canvas, Anvil Organic, and Alternative Apparel as Tiny’s top picks.
Aside from Anvil Organic, these styles also come in great trendy colors and they are always revamping the colors to match the latest color trends. You can download a spec sheet below the description for color and sizing info.
Need Women’s Fitted Shirts too?
No problem, all of these styles also have a Women’s companion style in most of the same colors as the unisex. LAT brand also makes some great looking women’s shirts, so you may want to check those out as well.
Gildan Ultra Cotton 2000
Tiny’s most popular option, this is pretty much the industry go to. It comes in a ton of colors and in men’s, women’s and youth varieties. This is a great option if you’re looking for a sturdy, heavy cotton t-shirt that’s reasonably priced.
The Gildan Ultra Cotton 2000 has a generous fit and holds up well with a lot of washes.
• 100% preshrunk cotton (except colors below)
• Seamless collar
• Dark Heather, Heather Navy, Heather Cardinal, and Heather Indigo are 50/50% cotton/poly
• Safety Green & Safety Orange are 50/50% cotton/poly
• Ash is 99/1 cotton/poly
• Sport Grey is 90/10 cotton/poly
• Antique Cherry Red, Antique Irish Green, Antique Royal are 90/10% cotton/poly
Canvas Jersey T-shirt
We love this Canvas Jersey T-Shirt! It comes in 30 different colors and has a lightweight, soft feel to it, like an expensive shirt you’d buy at your favorite retail store. Oftentimes we can get this for about $1 more than a basic T-Shirt and we think you’ll love the upgrade.
The fit is not generous, but not super tight either. We think it runs true to size, but our parents might say it runs a little small.
• 4.2 oz., 100% combed ringspun cotton (Dark Grey Heather is 52/48 cotton/polyester, Athletic Heather is 90/10 and Ash is 99/1 cotton/polyester), 30 singles
• Shoulder to shoulder taping
• Coverstitched collar and hemmed sleeves
Anvil Organic T-shirt
This is a good organic option that isn’t crazy expensive. For some reason, the youth shirts are EXTREMELY soft, and the adult shirts are PRETTY soft: not really sure why, but it’s a thing. These have a more stylish fit than the Gildan Ultra Cotton, but not as cool as the Canvas or Alternative Apparel.
Anvil Organic comes in styles for Men, Women, Youth and Toddlers, but these shirts have a limited color palette of mostly earth tones.
• 5 oz. 100% certified pre-shrunk organic cotton
• Soft, comfortable fabric
• Double-needle stitched for durability
Alternative Apparel Crew
Not sure how they do it, but Alternative Apparel has mastered the vintage-soft feel for t-shirts. This shirt has a great stylish, semi-fitted look to it, and it also comes in a companion Women’s style in a good variety of colors.
We really love these shirts! If you’re looking for something that will look cool and feel great, Alternative Apparel has got your number.
• 4.1 oz., 100% combed ringspun cotton, 30 singles
• Piece dyed and washed
• Tear-away label
