I just purchased my fifth package of these v-neck Ts. I’ve been wearing them for 3 years and I’m buying more. They are well made using good thick Cotten material. A total of 30 shirts with no issues or problems.
I’m at the size where sometimes I fit a small and sometimes I fit a medium. I check the measurements chart was exactly between small/medium and read that if unsure get one size up. Fair enough. It runs a little big for a medium so I was hoping that a good wash will make it perfect.This shirt shrunk a LOT on medium/low heat. Before washing, the length was perfect but the width was slightly too large. After the wash the length shrunk by almost TWO inches and the width shrunk by about one inch. I love the width, arms, and neck after the wash but the length shrunk too much that it can easily show my stomach when I raise my arms.
Stuck with air drying it and having it a bit oversized or drying it and having it fit perfect except for the length.

So I bought my husband these because I keep wearing his shirts to hide the baby pooch and they fit us both perfectly! I loved the light grey a lot more than I thought. We sweat quite a bit when anything is slightly humid and we just moved from Utah to Texas so we’re sweating like pigs 😂. I don’t like sweat marks or to see sweat in the clothes I wear and in the light grey it was loose enough on me that I didn’t have any sweat marks!
In general, I’m a picky shopper in terms of quality, but when it comes to undershirts, I only need something of decent quality but at a good price.
As a point of reference, for my own use, three Calvin Klein v-neck undershirts at Costco for $19.99 cost more than what I felt was necessary for me (they are definitely of better quality though).
So I found these Gildans and gave them a try. The fact that they cost less than $2 per undershirt worried me so I wasn’t expecting much, but they are actually better than expected, given the very reasonable price! I laundered them once before wearing one, and my initial impression is that they fit great (I ordered Medium size, and I’m a size 39 chest & 33 waist) and are of very acceptable quality considering the price.
I then compared them to some old Costco Kirkland V-neck T-Shirts that I’ve had for a very long time. These Gildans are a lighter thinner cotton, so their durability wash after wash remains to be seen, but I initially have absolutely no complaints for the price.
The Gildan cotton definitely feels rougher than the Kirklands, but not enough to prevent me from buying more Gildans for the price. The stitching on the Gildans is not as smooth or refined as the Kirkland’s, but again totally acceptable given the price point.
In the end, as long as you aren’t shopping for premium quality, IMHO I feel this is a very good deal on a set of 6 acceptable quality undershirts, and I found them even better than expected. If durability holds up after a reasonable amount of washes, I definitely plan to buy these again.
Meh…yeah, just meh. I guess you get what you pay for. Day 1 they came in and the first one I put on has a hole in the arm seam where it was not stitched properly. I guess I should have paid the extra $1 or $2 extra for the Hanes or Fruit of the Loom. I have not checked the other 5 but I’m not very confident these will last. I will write another review if they end up lasting but I’m guessing Gildan is not going to send me a replacement so I recommend just spending the extra buck for a better brand.

I grabbed these before I checked out as my husband wears these types of shirts frequently and his old ones were getting a bit too old! Fits well he’s 5’9 185lbs and we got a Medium

Don’t buy if you want the small v neck size in the photo. I ordered Large and the v neck is much larger than what is in the photo.

These shirts arrived unbelievably large; A size Large is much larger than a large in any other brand like J. Crew, Gap, Prana, Patagonia, any of Target’s brands, etc.
I washed them on cold, and then the absolute lowest setting on my dryer. The shirts shrunk to be about the size of a J. Crew Medium, despite being exposed to virtually no heat, and cold water. I can’t imagine what will happen when I wash them next. But, what’s really crazy is the differences in each shirt. I had to throw one shirt away immediately after washing, because it was, no exaggeration, 4″ shorter than the other shirts. It came down to above my belly button. None of the shirts are symmetrical, and none of them fit or are sewn the same as the other shirts. I assume these are hand made by people that are new to garment sewing. There are odd skipped and uneven stitches, which is something I’ve never noticed in any other factory produced garment. On top of all of this, these are paper thin shirts. Wearing the white shirt as an undershirt under a plain white button up, and you can see right through both shirts; these are definitely not appropriate shirts to wear on their own.

playeras de uso diario para salir del paso como playera para salir y hacer tus cosas del día, supermercado,gym,cine,ir a ver tus coches, bancos, pero no sirve para vestir en absoluto, si tu idea es que puedes ponertela con un blazer para estar semi formal eso no va a pasar, debes de estar conciente que e sun playera de 150 pesos cuesta lo mismo que una de zara así que no esperes mucho, el color dura al igual que la prenda, pero no trates de vestirte con estas playera para trabajar o esas cosas que requieren cierta formalidad por que no te verás bien, para eso recomiendo en todo caso mejor ir a una tienda zara y comprar sus playera baratas pero tiene mejores cortes y terminados más vestibles para convivencia más común, es una playera amplia así que si estas panzón te recomiendo estas playeras para no verte ridiculo con tu panza a punto de explotar, tamaño perfecto de hombros
Mido 175, peso casi 80 kilos.
Me quedan bien. Llevan varias lavadas y el color resiste. La tela también OK.

Overall I will be buying these shirts exclusively. They are not as high quality as the Kenneth Cole slim fit shirts I’ve stuck to for the past 5 years, but the general smaller shape of the vneck and shoulder lengths are similar.
1) Shrinks -> yes these shirts shrink about a 1/2 size (by their sizing standards, which leave a huge gap is measurements between M and L). I purposefully bought the L knowing this, washed and dried them on high heat to ensure they shrank 80% as much as they will over time right away. They are nearly a perfect fit now, for what they could ever be given their box style design/shape (see below). I am 6’2″ for reference, broad shoulder, 41″ chest, healthy/athletic build.
2) Not “fitted” / Classic box shape -> Again, these were manufactured with a cheap price point in mind, so they constructed these as cheap as they could have to hit the mass market, not healthy or athletic people, and the box shape is cheapest and easiest to construct. Thus these are the “Classic” overweight-male box style shirts. So if you are healthy weight male or athletic in any way at all, these will not be a great fit (but not terrible) as there will always be loose material floating around below the chest area that will get annoying (given that the chest area is larger than the waist/belly in healthy people). So I wouldn’t say this is a negative for the shirts because that is how they are designed, as “classic” style shirts. They are simply not designed for me or my normal build/healthy body.
3) Quality -> is something to be desired for improvement
Notice how the 5-star review process above doesn’t include quality?? Ya that’s for a reason.
Threads of the shirts after the 1st wash BEFORE even wearing them have already started to come loose and pull out. That is a concern for longevity given that comparably priced retail versions of the Kenneth Cole are stitched better, use higher quality fabrics and more importantly after 3 years the threads are still not coming loose. This is the most disappointing feature of the shirt. Remember just because something it 10% cheaper doesn’t mean it is nearly equal quality. Cheap is cheap, and when you go cheap you hardly ever get what you paid, you get worse. But I generally go through 10 of these a year with work, life and play, so it’s not a huge issue if these are readily available and somewhat cost effective. Not that I appreciate or want waste, but if I must I’ll simply replace them more frequently.
Overall though, given the price point the manufacturer Gildan created these at, they are a decent shirt. If I could easily get my hands on KC slim’s on Amazon that aren’t some cheaper knock off from Bangladesh (not that there is anything wrong with the region – it is simply known for cheaper knock off versions which is the case of the ones found here on Amazon, and interestly what Gildan is very well known for creating), I would certainly pay 10% more for KC shirts since they are significantly higher quality and feel better, or better put are simply a better value and quality for your money.
Bottom line, as a cheap throw away shirt that fits decent and is easily attainable whenever I want, these are certainly my new fall back and I am very happy for finding them.
