T-shirts could be made of cotton, polyester, spandex, rayon, viscose or a blend of fabrics. Cotton is known to be kinder to the skin, but takes time drying. Polyester, spandex and rayon are synthetic fabrics, while viscose is a semi-synthetic fabric. T-shirts made from these synthetic fabrics dry quickly and generally drape well on the body if you are looking for form-fitting t-shirts.
Physical attributes of a t-shirt
T-shirts come in a variety of colors, sizes, fabric weights, sleeve lengths, cuffs, necklines, waist sizes, lengths and fits.
Use Shirts In Bulk’s size guide to understand exactly what size of shirt will fit you most comfortably and choose between sizes that range from XS to 6XL. The density, thickness and durability of your t-shirt will be affected by the fabric weight. Heavier weights are often preferred for use during winter, although that is not always the case. On Shirts In Bulk, you can search through t-shirts according to weights.
Next comes design and style. We offer a large range of necklines to choose from; crew, deep V-neck, off-shoulder, V-neck, zippered, Henley are just to name a few. Sleeve lengths vary too, from no sleeves all the way to long sleeves. Choose a t-shirt with a neckline and sleeve length according to your personal style preferences.
Here’s an interesting factoid for you. Did you know that plus size clothing and clothing for children are often needlessly priced at higher costs than they should? However, when you buy from a shirt supplier like Shirts in Bulk, you can buy t-shirts at wholesale prices for as little as $3!
Depending on where and when a t-shirt is worn, it can be broadly classified as a basic t-shirt, athletic t-shirt or fashion t-shirt.
The basic t-shirt is one that comes to mind the minute we hear the word t-shirt! These come in a variety of colors. However, grey, melange, black, blue, red and white are the popular ones. Basic t-shirts are versatile and are built from durable fabric. These t-shirts are generally made up of a higher percentage of cotton, making them great for basic screen printing.
Athletic t-shirts are designed to be worn when engaged in a sport or for use in a gym. These have moisture wicking properties and offer UV protection so that you can exercise and play without worrying about sweat or sunburn. They are built using polyester as the base fabric.
Fashion t-shirts are the fun and adventurous members of the t-shirt family. They come in a larger variety of colors, cuts, and neck and sleeve shapes, and are available in a variety of fabric blends.
Now that you’re a t-shirt expert, it’s time to pick one out. Happy bulk t-shirt shopping!
