I'm baffled about the size differences. 1 minute is always 60 seconds and 1 meter is always 100 centimeters no matter where you are. But there are huge differences in clothing sizes. In this case I ordered 2 of the same shirts from the same brand in the same size, but 2 different colors.
Both shirts were ordered in 2XL at the same time. The black fit as expected for a 2XL, but the gray is like size 3X. As a matter of fact - the gray shirt fits much bigger than the picture indicates. It is just odd how 2 of the same shirts can differ so mush in size.

The Champion Jersey Tee is a quality shirt. It does not shrink in the wash and the colors are bright (no fading so far). The neck opening runs a little big, but other than that it's a great fit. The Champion logo is featured on the side and this is a tagless shirt. While some shirts tend to feel cheap, the Champion Jersey Tee is nothing but quality. The material thickness is perfect.
UPDATE 5/19/10: Two years later and the shirts I ordered are still going strong. In fact, I have now ordered some more. :)

Is it possible to give a half star? These new shirts from Champion are cut different than their old shirts. While they are still cut wide enough at the top for whatever size, the length is a good 2-4" shorter than the old shirts I used to get from Champion. I am 6'4" tall and the new ones barely reach my belt line....forget the idea of tucking them in. My older Champion shirts I bought 2-3 years ago still are long enough to tuck in...they are simply fading, that is why I bought new ones. The new ones also don't seem to be as thick a fabric as the old shirts.....3 year old shirts seem to be of heavier weight and more "heft" than these new paper thin dishrags.
I hope the folks at Chmpion see the error of their ways and return these formerly good quality shirts to their past quality levels.
I remember Champion products during the 80's. They made the absolute best TShirts, sweatshirts, shorts, etc... All our athletic gear was produced by Champion. They had a well deserved reputation for rugged clothes. Guess those days are gone.
The shirt (XXXL) was actually a little small to my surprise. I like these shirts loose fitting and buy a slightly larger size. I also found the shirt a little short. Additionally, the material is a lot thinner than my old Champion shirts, which I actually still have a few of after 15 years! I doubt these shirts will last beyond a year or two of normal use. The shirtd does have the Champion logo patch I remember. That's about it however.
I would also look at other reviews. It seems there is a wide range of remarks concerning quality and weight. It may be possible there are different production lines.
Simply put, I am dissapointed.

I used to love Champion T-Shirts because they are one of few that use a nice heavy cotton. The last batch of XL's I ordered were perfect. This batch. . . . well. . . . after the first watch, my kids started making fun of my "belly shirt" because the shirt barely makes it to my waist. I bouth an XL, but it fits like a medium.
I was happy to see similar reviews, because I really thought I just got that fat in the span of a year.
In this case, it's not the fat that makes you look fat, it's the shirt that makes you look fat.
