Like I said, this product is advertised as 100% cotton and as you can see in my image, it is very clearly not 100% cotton. At least I didn't have to throw away my skin to find out; just $7.78. I didn't actually try it on. It might fit well, but I'm not willing to sacrifice my flesh to find out.
I purchased these to add iron on vinyl to. My parents can never remember what I'm getting my doctorate in (a bunch of long boring words, as they tell me) and as a joke I wanted to put it on some shirts. I got a black one and a red one. The black one went well, but the black color where the iron had sat seemed slightly lighter (20 seconds in each spot, over a teflon sheet, stupid expensive Rowenta on the cotton setting). I figured that's fine, it's just a joke anyway and I'm sure the rest of the shirt will fade in a couple washes. On to the red shirt! I ironed the section where I would place the vinyl and the red seemed to get slightly darker and the color go from Christmas red to more pink. Giving the situation the benefit of the doubt, I assumed this was due to a little steam coming out (even though I had the steam off, I hadn't emptied the reservoir). I put the vinyl and teflon down, pressed for 20 seconds over sections of the design, removed the teflon and found the red dye to be quite unhappy with what just happened (much closer to pink, and actually lighter after waiting a few minutes). Red is the least stable of colors on a chemical level but I didn't think a few seconds of heat would do what it did in a cotton shirt made for durability. I'm just going to pretend the iron spots were intentional, to further the joke somehow. However, I wanted to leave a review with this information in case someone plans to use these shirts for vinyl transfer--the dye may not cooperate with higher heat applications.
* Durability for cheap. For $7 a shirt you get a fairly beefy cotton that doesn't rip the instant it catches on anything. It holds up well in the wash. The dye doesn't seem to fade. I can't tell the difference between two year old and two month old shirts.
* Pocket is nice. It's big enough to stuff your phone into it, but its better suited to light items that won't fall out due to gravity if you bend forward and stuff that you can clip to the edge of the pocket. Business cards, paper notes, pens, and small flashlights with pocket clips all do well in the pocket. If you put a phone in it expect it to flop out on the concrete if you bend forward more than 45 degrees.
* Consistency. I've bought 8 of these so far, two at a time over the course of about two years as I replaced my other work t-shirts. The sizing has not been altered in that time, nor has the material weight. I can't even tell the difference between the shirts from two years ago and the most recent ones, they don't even seem to have worn.
* Modest cut. They lean toward the boxy side which is fine if you aren't trying to show off. If you're a little on the pudgy side it's actually preferable. When I first got these I was about 195 at 6'1", two years later I've slimmed down while hitting the weights and sitting at 175 with a little more muscle in my upper torso and considerably less fat around my waist. If you want to turn any heads or catch any eyes this is not your go to t-shirt.
I had also been considering buying similar shirts from LL Bean or Land's End, but those cost 3 times as much; around $18 each, I decided to return the Hanes shirts and see what the much higher price of a LL Bean shirt would get me. When the shirts arrived I did some comparisons. The LL Bean shirt chest front measured 22" (compared to 19" for the Hanes) and it weighed 7.6 oz compared to 6.5 oz for the Haines; i.e. the LL Bean shirt was beefier than the Hanes, even though it was described as standard weight.
Is it worth 3 times the price? Probably not. Just order one size up, don't expect a heavy weight shirt, and you'll probably be happy and definitely richer.
I don't know if this is the seller's fault. Maybe they buy by the bulk and look for the cheapest price, not familiar with the particular logos and fits of everything they sell. I could understand that, if that were the case. However, most of the reviews indicate that most of the customers have gotten the real shirts, especially the ones that indicate the fit being right but being a bit short in torso length as the original brand's flaw is known to be. I do know that this is not what I ordered.
You can see in the photos I have uploaded the real one laid on top of the fake one, both size Large as indicated in the second photo which also shows the cheap and poor attempt at faking the branding.
