The shirts run WAY larger than the average man's S,M,L. Two of my guys normally wear L but the M are very roomy. The 2 that normally wear M, are swimming in the S. The son that normally wears a S, is out of luck! The quality is typical Carhartt sturdy, well-made.

    These are the greatest work shirts on the planet! Working in a winery requires a tough and durable shirt that also breathes and moves with you. These are the perfect shirts for a winery environment. Carhartt is always our go to brand.

  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by Kcfield from Michigan on Tuesday, August 23, 2016
    I wear a "large" size T-shirt with all other major brands (e.g., Jockey, Hanes, etc). However the large T-shirt from Carhartt was much too large--it fits like an extra large or bigger. Also, this T-shirt is an "irregular." While this fact is noted in small font on the website; Sierra Trading post would do well to make a more noticeable designation of irregulars/seconds. The website and Sierra Trading post management indicate that the irregular designation does not impact size or fit. For this buyer, it is unclear whether the excessively large fit is due to Carhartt sizing; or due to the irregularity. The reason that I am rating this product two stars rather than one star is that the product material seems to be a tough and durable cotton.

    If this were new, I'd rate it 5 stars. The defect was a fabric problem that was stitched over right between the shoulder blades about 4 inches below the back of the neck, and the lump could be irritating when it rubs against your back. Customer service could not hand select or guarantee that the defect on these seconds would be any different if I sent them back.
    All things considered, a new shirt is $14 on Amazon with free shipping and free returns, so $9 at Sierra Trading Post is too high for a damaged product. Sorry.

    • Answer I ordered these for my husband and the tag says they're made in Haiti.

    • Answer The shirts I received in my order where all made in Haiti.
      Answered on 2/20/2016 6:59:21 AM by BargainMAN from Colorado
    • Answer The shirts I got were marked size Large, made in Honduras, 'Original Fit'. The fit for me is comfortably roomy. I use them for work and am not interested in a skin tight fit. It seems that Rene's question might be asking S.T.P. which of the three possible locations has made the shirts in question --- as a means of assessing the roominess before purchase. For me, extra room in a tee shirt is not a problem , but a too-tight shirt doesn't work. Hope that is helpful.
      Answered on 2/20/2016 11:29:18 AM by EJ from MA
    • Answer The most recent one we purchased was a light color and was made in Haiti. Most of the shirts we have purchased have been darker colors and were made in Honduras. It is true that they do not seem to be made the same exactly. The first Carhartt we bought was the best, with longer sleeves but was purchased several years ago. No matter where others have come from they do not have the "original" fit. Still, for my husband they all work OK. Some are better than others.

    • Answer I've only had the 2XL and XL...and they are plenty long for me. But if you're really tall or otherwise concerned about it they make and sell "Big and Tall" versions as well.

    • Answer I'm 6'5" and 265 lbs and the XL tall fit fine. They're loose fit. If you want Marlon Brando fit, go with L Tall. They DO NOT shrink! No matter how hot the water or dryer, they don't shrink! Should have bought more. They beat the hell outa JC Penney's pocket Ts.

    • Answer The XL's are pretty long and baggy. I usually take an XL but returned these for a large that fit much better. No shrinking on any of the Carhartt T-shirts I've washed.
      Answered on 12/17/2014 3:57:07 AM by jimbo28 from ohio

      I just measured a blue and a green tee. After weekly washings since early summer 2014 - warm wash/cold rinse, hot dryer - LAID FLAT to measure- the size LARGE measures: 30" center back length and 24" armpit to armpit.

      Speaking to the size LARGE, it is a generous fit and EXCELLENT color retention, VERY MINIMAL shrinkage, and BEEFY QUALITY of the fabric.

      From our experience, I would not order up in size to accommodate date shrinkage.

      The return/exchange policy is FAB if you need it!

    • Answer Carhartt's XL T-shirts fit like a 2XL in most other brands. I've got 23 of them and I've noticed no noticeable shrinkage. I promise you I would need a 2XL in anyone elses shirt. If you prefer a longer shirt tail they also come in a tall version.
      Answered on 12/17/2014 4:30:18 AM by Jim in Georgia from Georgia
    • Answer I think they are plenty long and stay tucked. I am 6'1", 250# and I wear an XL in this shirt. I normally wear a 2xl in any other brand. They are definitely a size big.

    • Answer The 2XLs I bought are wrapped up for Christmas for our son. Tthe 3XL's I got for my husband are 32" from neck to bottom and have not shrunk using warm wash and cold rinse, then putting in a dryer that has a moisture sensor. My husband loves them because of the sturdy pocket. Now that he is retired it is his "official" uniform.

    • Answer My husband likes a long shirt as well, sometimes, when available we will buy a carhartt short sleeve button down tall for the length. I've never seen tall as an option on the tshirts. They wash and wear well, especially considering the price at Sierra Trading Post. They are marked irregular. Only one time in all the years I've bought his Carhartt tshirts from STP did irregular mean there was a defect I had noticed, it was a small hole they had repaired by stitching together. We use them mostly for working on a ranch or chores as such, he does tend to use the charcoal, dark brown, and black tshirts as dress up with shorts. They all wash and wear well. I hope that kinda answered ur question. I've never measured them when they come in and then wash and measure again. So I'm not sure how to answer length. My husband is 6' 3" and about 280lbs...he requires clothes to cover him in length...

    • Answer I wear the L and XL pocket T's. No problem with length. I am 5' 10" stocky build. Never a problem with shrinkage either. They will fade a little after several washings. I use them for casual for a few washings then on to work wear till I wear them out. Very well pleased over the years.

    • Answer These are Carhartt style k87 which I believe is what your husband has since the only other T-shirt with a pocket is a light weight T. The care tag that is on the side hem about at the waist should have K87 on it at the bottom of the tag.

  • Question “What makes these t-shirts seconds?”

    Asked on 7/19/2012 12:00:00 AM by capnlarry from Lincoln, Ne
    • Answer 2nds are items with barely perceptible blemishes or slight irregularities that do not affect fit, performance or longevity such as an error in the stitching or a slight fading of the product’s color. Labels on 2nds are usually clipped or marked by the manufacturer, and 2nds are often offered at lower prices.

    • Answer From the question posted, I am not sure about your specific issue but if it is fit and fabric weight/content I am unhappy with my latest Carhardtt purchases as well. The material is lighter weight than my older shirts and the fit seems tighter than a similarly sized older tee. I have probably gone through a 100 of their tees in 20 years and remember what amazing shirts they were. They are still better than a Hanes Beefy-T but I miss the made in USA product of past years. I am not just a grumpy old man but simply someone who has lived and worked in these shirts for a long, long time.

    • Answer You do not want to purchase any cotton item as they are not quick dry. You will want a shirt made out of polyester or nylon or a combination of both, but no cotton.
