Style Guide 101: Picking The Right T-Shirt For You
04/15/2019 by RushOrderTees.com
Maybe you need shirts for your intramural softball league, your restaurant staff, robotics club, or fundraising team. No matter what you need them for, it’s vital that you order quality t-shirts that fit well, feel comfortable, and endure all of your activities and needs. Here are the most important things to consider for a quality tee:
Style and Fit
First, decide the fit and style you want. Your classic t-shirt is always a go-to, but in some situations, you may want to consider the other options. Form-fitted works well for business staff, particularly in food or service industries where the staff members are moving around and can’t afford to get their shirt snagged on the corner of a table.
If you’re going to be wearing your t-shirt outdoors, or at a beach event or outdoor picnic, tank tops are the way to go. Conversely, if you are going to be outside in chilly weather, the long sleeve shirt is for you. Other fitting options include v-neck and pocketed tees, which are both stylish choices that can add flair to a traditional tee.
The second thing to consider is the material of the t-shirt. Some brands now use organic materials to make their products, which are not only softer and more comfortable, but also fit extremely well. These are perfect for a shirt you know you’ll want to wear often, because you’ll wear this one over and over!
If you’re going to be wearing your t-shirts during a physical activity, or wearing it outside in extreme heat, you may want to consider a material like Dri Fit that releases moisture. This avoids showing sweat and actually keeps you cooler than traditional cotton would, so that you aren’t held back by your back sweat-stained cotton shirt.
Where it’s Made
Aside from back sweat, one concern among many people is where their clothes are actually coming from. In lieu of unease about foreign manufacturing, many brands choose to make their products right here in the United States. USA-made products come in a great variety, and you can rest assured that you are doing good for the local economy, which is more important now than ever.
Now that you’ve picked the right t-shirt, the final decision is one that can make or break whether or not this t-shirt becomes a new favorite, or gets donated during a closet clean-out: the design. If you have a designer working on your graphics, then you’re well on your way! If you’re on your own, or simply having trouble getting your design just right, our pro designers love to help!
