Relaxed, Quality Casual T-Shirts are Becoming Hard to Find 

Finding quality men's t-shirts to use for working in or just summer casual is getting harder to do. Like most men, I typically pick up a sale brand at our local retail store. After one washing the shirt already feels to tight and/or too short.

Now, the size of the person has everything to do with this problem. It's doubtful skinny people have this problem. Their need is probably for more of a slim-fit or tailored shirt. But for most men who are of average size build or slightly obese, the shrinkage problem is pretty standard.

Quality is also a common problem. When working in a t-shirt, it doesn't always last very long. Or the t-shirt simply tears or rips too quickly to make it a tee to wear while working.

Finally, A T-Shirt for Men of All Sizes

This product is for men (and women who wear men's shirts..) who are both average build size and tall. You can wear this t-shirt alone or as an undershirt.

Most often, I would expect a shirt like this to be worn alone because of the different colors and the pocket tee. The pocket does come with a pencil divider.

The t-shirt is also heavier duty than your average tee. You can tuck it in underneath another shirt, but you're probably going to be more comfortable keeping this shirt untucked.

Dickies, A Brand You Can Trust!

This t-shirt is made by a trusted name, Dickies, who has been making quality work-wear since 1922. Their classic crew neck tees are made of a heavyweight 100% soft cotton jersey knit. The shoulder and neck seams are extra strong, making them more durable.

These shirts come with a tag-less label, which keeps them from the annoying chafing on your neck and back. Along with the included pocket, it has a pencil divider.

Short Sleeve Heavyweight T-Shirt

The shirt also comes with a longer tail, even longer for the tall size, so you can tuck it in if wearing it as an undershirt. If wearing alone, then you don't have to worry about what happens when you bend over.

"Long Tail Keeps You Concealed"

Being a well-known brand, Dickies makes related clothing such as jeans, hats, socks, underwear, boots, gloves, belts, bags, and much more. Once you find a good brand, you feel comfortable buying their other products since you know they are correctly fitting clothing.

The T-Shirt That Will Meet Your Needs

The tee is made from 100% preshrunk cotton, so it does not shrink as much when you wash it. Personally, I didn't notice any shrinkage after washing and drying the first couple of times.
