How to choose T-shirt?

1. Fabric

Pure cotton
Advantages: high comfort
Disadvantage: easy to wrinkle.
Add a small amount of spandex can significantly change the physical properties of the fabric, greatly increasing the elasticity of the fabric, while maintaining the texture and comfort of pure cotton.
In addition, the neckline to join the spandex can prevent the neckline loose large deformation, to maintain the lasting elasticity of the neckline.

Polyester cotton
Advantages: soft and thick to the touch, not easily deformed by washing
Disadvantages: wearing comfort is slightly worse than cotton fabric.
Common polyester cotton is 80% cotton, 20% polyester or 65% cotton, 35% of the ratio.


2. Grammage
Gram weight is generally used to indicate the degree of thinness of the fabric, the greater the gram weight the thicker the clothes.
T-shirt gram weight is generally between 160 grams to 220 grams. Too thin will be very transparent, too thick will be stuffy. Usually between 180-220 grams of thickness is just right.


3. Count
The number of counts is equivalent to the exquisite workmanship of the clothes, the higher the count tends to be more high-grade. Of course, this is not the necessary condition to distinguish a good or bad clothes.

Coarse yarn: 18 counts and below of cotton yarn, mainly used for weaving thick fabrics or pile and loop cotton fabrics.
Medium count yarn: 19-29 counts of cotton yarn. Mainly used for general requirements of knitted garments.
Fine-knitting yarn: 30-60 counts cotton yarn. Mainly used for high-grade knitted cotton fabrics.
The higher the count, the softer it is. T-shirts are generally 21-32 counts.
