This shirt is a 6oz tee made from 100% sustainably and fairly grown USA cottonThere are a few colors (the grays, heathers, and safety colors) that incorporate a poly blend, but for most colors this t-shirt utilizes a heavy weight cottonThe shirt features double needle stitching throughout, has shoulder to shoulder taping, and features ribbed cuffs.


First things first – this is not an overly soft shirt.  If you’re looking for an extremely soft t-shirt, you’ll want to lean more towards a ringspun cotton, or a poly or triblend t-shirtThat’s not to say that this shirt is scratchy or comfortable, but it’s a 100% cotton basic long sleeve, and that’s what it feels like. It heavyweight and sturdy, but not overly soft. 

AVAILABLE COLORS carries this shirt in 28 colorsAll the major primary basics are here, along with a nice selection of heather grays, and even some safety colors. There isn’t a huge representation of pastels with this product, so if you’re looking for a really unique color, you might be better off with one of our other long sleeve offerings. 


How does the G240 hold up in the washTo find out, Team Threadsy put the G240 through the wash test. After washing and testing out three different colors of the G240, Team Threadsy recommends pre-washing/drying the G240 before decorating, and recommend ordering a size up if you’re between sizesIf you don’t want it to shrink - you’ll want to wash and hang dry.
