Excellent workwear option for around £3 a shirt.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 25 May 2018
According to the reviews, lots of folks expect the ‘worlds best T shirt’ for £3 a pop, and in my experience, this is just never going to happen.
However, if you can keep some perspective, these ‘Super Premium’ T shirts are an amazing bargain, provided you can get the size you prefer.
I’m a 42” chest, and my preference is for a baggy T shirt for workwear, so I ordered XL – and they are a nice, comfortable, loose fit. A tiny bit on the ‘large’ side? Possibly, but these are a workwear option: rather an inch too big than too small.
In one of the shirts I received, the stitching was not 100% perfect ( no holes, nothing major), but since these cost about the same as 30mins parking in an NCP, I don’t really expect perfection.
It says 'Super Premium' on the tag, that means that you are getting taped shoulder seams, no side seams, a quality fabric, double stitching on the arms and hem, and a better quality fabric on the neck. Mine are washing fine in terms of colour and shape. And I no longer find myself in an (overpriced) fashion brand just for painting, gardening, or the endless washing of my wife’s car.
Tips for sizing problems:
If you don’t get the size correct, you can always return them. If you think that is too much effort, then you can always gift them to someone you know who will fit your shirts. In extreme cases, you may have to befriend someone specifically in order to get someone of the correct size ( or you could opt to save time and donate them to a charity or a homeless person).
Worlds Best Vs Perspective.
If you are looking for the “World’s Best T Shirt”, then Sunspel’s Sea Island Cotton T would have to be a strong contender. At today's prices, they cost THIRTY FIVE TIMES MORE than a Fruit Super Premium, and you still might not get your preferred size right on the first try. Decisions, decisions...
