Gildan Hammer T
The Gildan Hammer T is very thick and soft on the skin. It has a decent quality build. Fit is boxy but not overly boxy. The XL shirt I tested was accurately sized unwashed. I do believe after washing it would run a bit on the small side since it's 100 percent cotton. It will certainly shrink at the very least, 1/2 a size. This shirt is almost a home run for Gildan except for a few issues. The shirt is too short. Needs at least 1 more inch in length. The sleeves are nice and long, but unfortunately the arm holes on this shirt are simply too big and baggy. The area of the shirt between my shoulders and my neck seemed to bunch up and wouldn't settle completely. I'm not sure if this was a problem with the craftsmanship of the shirt or just that the shirt didn't fit my build well. I'm 5"10 and 215lbs with a semi muscluar build. If Gildan made a couple small tweeks to this shirt and also came out with a 4.5 oz version of this shirt, I would put it up there with Belle and canvas, and port and companies best shirts. Unfortunately for now, the fit just isn't good enough. The softness is there though.
I would definitely check out the brand Alstyle. Their shirts are boxy, soft, and thick as well., but their shirts are preshrunk. So you wouldn't have to worry about shrinkage. Another good alternative is a brand called Los Angeles Apparel, their quality is really good since its made in the USA. Definitely give us a call on your next order and ask for Ricky. He will help you find good alternatives to the Gildan Hammer T.
