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.

  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by Breathing smoke from California foothills on Friday, August 21, 2015
    My husband likes these shirts as they fit him well. He has broad shoulders and is slender, and many T-shirts are made for a different build.
    Also, he likes the heavy weight.
    The seconds we have gotten are fine for his purposes, with nearly undetectable flaws, with the exception of one we received with a hole cut in the sleeve. STP promptly replaced it with another that was fine.
    I will comment that the very first Carhartt T-shirt we bought several years ago had longer sleeves, and none since then have the same length sleeve which he liked (to the elbow- he is 5'7"). And, as others have commented, the size varies among the same size shirt. I had several newer and older ones hanging next to each other and noticed that there were at least 2 inches difference in length between them.

    I ordered 2 of these & noticed no major flaws despite the fact that they're "2nds." They run large so I ordered size small which fits more like a large.

    Carhartt's Work Wear T-Shirt is a good cotton shirt. "It's the best bang for the buck!"
  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by Gretalarkin from Gretalarkin on Friday, July 31, 2015
    Carhartt's Work Wear T-shirt is perfect for the gym or just casual wear. Great fit, true to size. I am 5'91/2", 160 lb. and medium fits great. The sleeves are long enough to cover your upper arm. The neck is high. The length covers you when you exercise but is not too long. The pocket is handy.They offer a great selection of colors. I have 9 of these. Some I paid full price at stores and some I bought discounted seconds from Sierra. I can not tell the difference between the 'perfect' and seconds.

    • 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 from 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.
      Answered on 12/17/2014 6:24:29 AM by Always Outdoors from Northeast Pa.
    • 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 these are new shirts, but they were on sale for $11.99 each.
      Answered on 5/9/2012 12:00:00 AM by Exuma Bear from West Palm Beach
    • 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.
