Compare T-Shirts: Good, Better, and Best

Ever wonder what makes one shirt better than another? Well, you’ve come to the right place. Here we will explain what separates the good from the best and what part price plays in the big scheme of things.

Certain t-shirts are more or less expensive depending on brand, style, and weight. The more options you have to choose from and the better the brand is the greater the cost will be. Below are a few examples of what we mean.

Good Shirt: DesignAShirt Value Tee $

  • Our Value Tee is an excellent example of a good shirt. This 5.4 oz t-shirt comes in black and white and allows our customers to save money while still receiving the quality t-shirt that you deserve and expect from DesignAShirt.
  • The value tee is the same kind of tee you would find at a baseball or football game. It is lightweight and maybe not the softest tee in the closet, but it makes a great canvas for all your designs and is one of the most inexpensive tees we have.

Better Shirt: Hanes Tagless $$

  • Hanes Tagless is a quality shirt with great fit and comfortable fabric. This 6.1 ounce heavyweight is a 100% cotton shirt that comes in both long and short sleeved options for you to choose from.
  • This tee is preshrunk and resistant to shrinking and fading with shoulder-to-shoulder tape for durability and, of course, sports the Hanes famous tag-free collar. It costs a bit more than our Value Tee but it is thicker with more colors and specific sizes to choose from. To see product details click here.

Best Shirt: Hanes Beefy $$$

  • Hanes Beefy is one of the most comfortable tees, setting their standard for over 35 years. It is the same thickness as Hanes Tagless but uses ring spun cotton for that luxurious fee.
  • This 6.1 ounce t-shirt has ultra-soft premium cotton that feels great against your skin. Choose from several styles in both long and short sleeves. This super soft tee is also available in a style sporting a useful 5-point pocket in the upper left chest. To see product details click here.

So what does all this mean? Basically, it means that different kinds of shirts cost us different amounts depending on the brand, weight and style. If the cost of the shirt is higher to begin with then end-product price will be greater as well.
