Not As Good As The Old Beefy-T

Verified Buyer Reviewed by ChasM from Colorado Springs, CO on Tuesday, September 18, 2012
I've worn Beefy-T's since the 70's when I bought one at the first Crazy Shirts in Hawaii. Over the years, there have been some changes, mostly for the better. However, these latest shirts I bought are not better. The jersey knit fabric doesn't feel as heavy, and the shirts don't fit as well as the old ones. There's nothing particularly bad about the fit or quality, but they don't fit as well and don't seem as good. For instance, the neck opening is larger and the sleeve opening is larger. (Maybe we're fatter now, so we need bigger openings?) The seams where the sleeves meet the body are sewn unevenly and don't lay flat (bunchy) and the sewing feels thin. Beefy-T's used to be GREAT. Now they're just OK. These new shirts feel like a cheaper, knock-off version of the old Beefy-Ts that have been part of my daily go-to clothing since I was a teen ager.
