T-shirts are considered as versatile wardrobe clothing items. Nowadays, people use tees as undergarments and outwear. Through the years, shirt designs have evolved from vintage artwork to iconic ones. So what it is that you have to look in a shirt?
Choose a shirt that will keep its original shape and not be wider or shorter after laundering. Try to look for tees with firm, close knitting. Tiny loops must be round and plump and not stretched and pulled to thing shapes. Avoid tees with stretched loops.
Shirt garment must be cut with grain. Vertical loops should be at right angles with the lower edges rather than appearing distorted. If the garment cut isn’t done appropriately, it remains twisted and out of shape even after washing.
Check the shirt’s tag or label information. Shirts are available in 100%, 50% polyester and 50% cotton, or other levels of cotton and synthetic fibers. Cotton ensures most of a shirt’s comfort and absorbent qualities. Polyester adds stability to the clothing and minimizes shrinking. Polyester fibers let clothing dry quickly and reduce wrinkling.
Shirts should be 1%-2% shrink resistance in order for it to maintain its right size. All cotton tees can shrink as much as 5%. Blended shirts tend to shrink less.
Examine a t-shirt for its overall even and smooth stitching of seams. The top stitches should be straight and flat without any broken stitches. The neckband should be smooth and even. Shirt hems shouldn’t show or top stitched as garment design. Seams must be zigzagged.
