How to choose a good quality t-shirt today? It's actually not as difficult as you think.

However, there are a few things to keep in mind and remember that we each have an idea of ​​what constitutes a good quality t-shirt.

Label the item

The first thing you can do is label the item. If it is a cotton t-shirt and it feels stiff or rough, then it may be an indication that the quality of the t-shirt is not so good. If, on the other hand, it feels soft and nicely firm, then it can be a sign of a good t-shirt made of good materials

But do not stop there, because there are many more factors.


There are very few t-shirts that have specified a thread count and it is not needed either. But they indicate what material the t-shirt is made of. You will most often see 100% cotton or a 50/50 indication. 50/50 just says it's 50% cotton and 50% polyester.

Test if it curls

Curl some of the clothes in your hand and then release. If it retains many wrinkles, it is probably of poor quality, if it does not maintain any wrinkles at all, it is probably a synthetic material. However, this is not a 100% sure indicator, but compared to the other factors, it can help you tell if it is a good or bad t-shirt

Check the transparency < br>
Hold the t-shirt against a light source and see how transparent it becomes. The more transparency, then the less density. You want a t-shirt that has a good density. However, a light transparent t-shirt is a bit more comfortable to wear in the summer.

How many stitches

Stitches are what hold it all together. You could call it the muscles of the t-shirt. Since manufacturers will always pay more attention to the outside of a T-shirt, the easiest way to see if a stitch is done well or not is by turning it around. Are there many loose threads, does it lie flat, does it look very sloppy? These are signs of a poorer manufacturing process

Then also check how many stitches the t-shirt has. One can say that the higher the count the better. This means that more time was spent putting together this tee. If you have never been aware of these things, then you may want to check out your own wardrobe. Take the different clothes out, compare them and try to be a little critical. Then you can quickly see a difference.

Edges / seams

The seams or edges are also a good way to see how much care and attention has been put into piece of clothing at the time of manufacture. When it comes to t-shirts, pay special attention to the sleeves, collar, and bottom edge.

We hear many people say that the higher the weight and the thicker the fabric, the better the quality. It could not be more wrong! If a seller is trying to sell you this premise, consider whether it is the right place to buy your t-shirts


It all depends on what your needs are. The weight of the fabric is in most cases a definition of the thickness of the t-shirt itself. If you are looking for a heavy t-shirt, then gsm (grams per square meter) is typically 180-200 gsm. Which is at the very heavy end of t-shirt weight. Instead, you need to go down to 130-150 gsm if you want a light summer t-shirt.

When it comes to a hoodie or sweatshirt, it's the same principle. A thick winter hoodie will typically be at 300-400 gsm, whereas a summer hoodie will be at around 200-250 gsm. A good year-round will be 250-300 gsm.

Will a heavier t-shirt last longer than a lightweight one?

Both and! It also depends on your consumption habits of your t-shirts. if you use it 3-4 times a week, then a thicker t-shirt will generally last a little longer.However, keep in mind that it also depends on the stitching, stitches, edges and thread count

There are t-shirts under 150gsm that last longer than one of 190gsm. As I said, it depends on which cotton, seams, etc.

If you see a t-shirt that is very cheap and it has a high weight, then it is a clear signal that it is a t-shirt that does not last very long.
