Cheap Utilitarian T-Shirt
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 25 February 2014
I work outdoors, however I am required to wear a company short sleeved t-shirt. In the winter this makes things very chilly indeed! However they allow you to wear a plain black item below this
Therefore I was looking to invest in a cheap item that wouldn't be seen anyway, so I purchased this item.
When I was growing up I stayed near a Fruit of the Loom factory retailer so I was well aware of the brand. They did items from the very cheap and basic quality up to the very expensive and outstanding quality. However like most fashion brands (remember Kappa, Burberry etc?), they fell by the wayside and now only really do cheap basic clothing. However this is not a criticism - stick to what you are good at and you will flourish.
This item is of cheap thin material and won't win any awards for quality or design, however I am happy with this as that is what I paid for. If I had wanted a good thick, quality t-shirt I would have expected to pay £12-£15.
Tip: if you find yourself towards the top of a size, (I'm usually a Large, this is a X-Large) you are best buying the next size up.
In summary if you want a thick expensive item this is not for you, otherwise it's a good buy - I'm definitely going to buy another.
***Update 14/03/2014. I made the mistake of tumble drying this item (I should have read the label) and it shrunk it a size. Oh well - only myself to blame!
