This shirt is printed using American Apparel’s 2001 T-shirt. This is a soft, fashion fit style shirt. It’s not as tight fitting as a slim fit shirt but also not as boxy as say a Hanes Beefy T-Shirt. It is one of the highest quality t-shirts used by many t-shirt companies. It is U.S. made and sweatshop free.
These shirts are known for their premium quality, as well as ability to stand up to a washing machine. They will maintain their size if washed as the t-shirt says, with cold water and low heat during drying. In this case, purchase the size t-shirt you’d normally wear.
If you plan to wash this t-shirt with hot water and medium to high heat on your dryer, it will likely shrink a size. In this case, purchase a size up to compensate.
