Short Sleeve Ring Spun Cotton Comparison Chart

You’ve heard us say it before… not every t-shirt is created equal. When you start brainstorming your next order, you will be confronted with a long list of available garments in each Fabric category. This week, we’ve created a comparison chart to highlight the 6 most popular garments in the “Short Sleeve Ring Spun Cotton” category. In short, Ring Spun Cotton is a tighter, stronger weave with a softer feel. In the apparel industry, Ring Spun is often referred to as Fashion Fit. These shirts are a nice step up from your Basic Cotton shirt and are often preferred in the Clothing Industry.

In the following chart, we have listed the 6 most popular Ring Spun Cotton Short Sleeve T-Shirts, showing their price per garment based on the number of colors in the print. To help you better understand how to use this chart, let’s take an example:

Acme, Inc. wants to print a 2 color design on the Gildan 64000. Using the following chart, they would find G64000 under the header ‘2 Color’. The price per garment is $5.85. Since they are printing 100 shirts, they would multiply $5.85 x 100 shirts to get their total of $585.

Be sure to read the Manufacturer’s description following the chart to find out more about each particular garment. Please email us any time if you have questions about a particular garment or if you would like a recommendation.

Unisex Shirts… Not Really.

The term Unisex in the garment world means that it will fit most “everyone, male or female. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean it will be flattering. With current trends in fashion, most people are looking for a slim-fitted look. Unisex shirts will be slim and fitted on some, mostly men, but they will not be slim and fitted on women. Let’s face it, men and women are built differently, so doesn’t it make sense that clothing is built differently for men and women? Most people want garments specifically cut for their fit, and most, if not all garment manufacturers know this and make a “Unisex” (or men’s cut) shirt and a Women’s cut shirt. Read on to see how unisex shirts fit!

The 6 most popular Unisex soft style ring spun cotton shirts in the printing world are listed below, along with their women’s equivalent.
