are t-shirts fashionable?

Absolutely! T-shirts have been a primordial item in the closets of practically everyone since the 20th century, so much that we cannot even comprehend what we would wear today if we didn’t have t-shirts.

T-shirts are also one of the most customized clothing items to exist, as practically every t-shirt has some sort of design to decorate it. So much so that plain t-shirts are a lot less common than t-shirts with some sort of decoration.

So, yes, t-shirts can be very fashionable if you pick them correctly, and they are the clothing item that best expresses your identity, that’s why t-shirts are the top choice for customizable clothes. 

which is the best color for a t-shirt?

There are many combinations that fit a t-shirt and complement you well, but there are also colors that generally work much better than others. But this can vary depending on what type of t-shirt you are wearing and even you yourself.

Fun fact, some researchers at Nottingham Trent University have found that men that wear plain white are found 12% more attractive than their other male counterparts, this is because plain white t-shirts slim the waist and broaden the shoulders.

Having said this, let’s review the best color combinations for a t-shirt (although this is subjective and you may not 100% agree). The best color combinations for a t-shirt are:

  • Red and White
  • Blue and White
  • Dark and Light Blue
  • Blue and Yellow (Without overusing it)
  • Red, White, and Blue
  • Yellow and White
  • Black and White (A very elegant choice)
  • Orange and Blue

Now, if we’re looking at plain colors, the best plain colors for a t-shirt are:

  • White
  • Black
  • Navy (A very pretty color if used correctly)
  • Grey
  • Red (The color of love, this is the most attractive color and should be used at a date)

are t-shirts formal?

As we said earlier, everyone uses t-shirts, almost every time. A clear proof of this is that we even use t-shirts as pajamas, so we truly use them every single day no matter what.

However, t-shirts may not always be appropriate depending on the situation you are in. This clothing item can be used in almost any context but when it comes to formality, it may not be the best option as it may seem too casual to be worn.

A buttoned shirt is always preferred in a formal context, but if you want to wear a t-shirt no matter what, here are some tips for you:

  • Don’t wear a collarless t-shirt to any formal or semi-formal event.
  • Wear a polo or any other item that resembles a t-shirt but has better quality and adapts to a more formal context.
  • Wear dark colors like Navy Blue (a great choice for any clothes).
  • Adapt your other clothes to your t-shirt, if you wear a t-shirt or a polo wear pants, shoes and a jacket at the same level of formality.

are t-shirts unisex?

Unisex t-shirts are made to be worn by both men and women, and they are usually the most popular as they are just as good as men’s and women’s t-shirts, but in very rare cases they can cause problems.

Unisex t-shirts are based on men’s sizes, but as we said earlier they are made to fit both men and women, so you don’t need to worry about that. What you need to worry about is if your body doesn’t conform to the universal size standards, in which case you will need to be careful when choosing sizes.

Generally, you will be just fine buying unisex t-shirts, as the majority of people do that. Buying women’s t-shirts can be a good idea if you want a more fitted t-shirt that gives you more curves and form. If you’re a man there’s really no point in buying men’s t-shirts, when they may even be more expensive (although there can be cases where a men’s t-shirt is preferred, this is extremely rare).

why get your t-shirts printed

Getting your t-shirts printed is a great way to add a little creativity and magic to your closet and ultimately, to your life. This can be a great idea to feel more comfortable in the clothes that you wear.

You can print t-shirts with everything you want, from your favorite cartoon or series to your favorite actor (Although this can be a trademark infringement, though world we live in).

And this is absolutely great! Studies have shown that clothes that you can closely relate to last much longer than others, and make you feel much more special. And if you were the one that made the design, this will be especially true!

how to get your t-shirts printed

You can go to any physical store that specializes in printing t-shirts, check around your area to see if there are any (there should), and just say what you want them to print, although the quality of the print can be quite bad.

The other thing you can do is go online and search for services that print t-shirts for you, and what a coincidence, you’re in one of them right now! Yes, we sell t-shirts online but you can also request custom t-shirts for yourself (more on that later).

The most DIY thing you can do, however, is buy a special machine that prints over t-shirts, you can do that, but it’s too expensive and pointless if you don’t plan on opening some type of printing business.

How to get your t-shirts printed

how are t-shirts printed

To illustrate how t-shirts are normally printed, we will take our own t-shirts as an example:

  • Our production partners help us print our designs, produce ethically made clothing, and ship the products to our customers.
  • We use the DTG or direct-to-garment printing process, which is a printing method that sprays the ink onto the garment. The ink then soaks into the fibers of the garment. It’s like printing on paper, but on clothing.
  • DTG printers offer a lot of color options which means we can print detailed designs and photorealistic images with almost no color limitations, and the result is amazing.
  • DTG is a more sustainable fashion business model than screen printing. Mainly because printing one-offs allows us to avoid overproduction and textile waste. With 92 million tons of textile going to waste in the fashion industry each year, a business model like this is a game-changer.
  • Plus, a lot of DTG printer manufacturers create advanced tech that’s made with sustainability in mind. For example, our production partners also partner with Kornit whose printers produce almost zero wastewater and use less energy, lowering the carbon footprint.
  • What’s more, Kornit printers use water-based vegan inks that they formulate, test, and produce in their own ink factories, maintaining the highest quality levels. The inks are non-hazardous, toxin-free, biodegradable, and contain no animal by-products.

This is basically it, but if you are just planning on getting a custom t-shirt printed, you don’t have to worry about anything of the above.

how to get custom t-shirts

Getting your first custom t-shirt is very easy! You can request it now a t-shirt featuring your cat, your most loved quote, name, or even your neighbor! (We don’t know why you would want that, but you will not be asked any questions).

The first thing you can do is go to our Shop and look around, we have many designs that you may already love, we may even have the exact thing you were searching for in the first place! So feel free to look around, and if you don’t find anything, go to the next step.

Do t-shirts protect you from the sun?

Do t-shirts protect you from the sun?

Clothes do offer protection from the sun, but this protection may vary depending on the material that has been used, the process of making the item, the color, the humidity…

Generally, clothes, including t-shirts protect you from the sun, the clothes that protect you the most from the sun’s UV rays are:

  • Long-sleeve t-shirts and other long clothing that cover more skin
  • Darker colored clothing
  • Tightly woven fabrics
  • Dry fabrics.

There are many t-shirts that are now made in a special way so that they don’t let that much UV light come through, offering great protection from the sun, this can be checked on the label of the product which can sometimes indicate the UPF value of the product.

You also have to be extremely careful when getting wet, as the t-shirt can lose its protective value dramatically exposing you to harmful UV light for as long as the t-shirt stays wet.

can the sun damage you through clothes?

We said that t-shirts protect you from the sun, kind of, but they don’t do it as efficiently as to completely avoid damage from the sun’s harmful UV light, which could lead to a problem.

Even if you are wearing clothes covering your skin, the sun’s rays can still pass through and cause damage, a rule of thumb is that if you can see through your t-shirt, UV lights can pass as well and damage your skin.

This is especially true if your clothes are wet, as UV lights can pass through more easily and cause even more damage to your skin, which can lead to sunburns and in the worst cases accelerated aging and skin cancer long-term.

So, always stay safe, the sun is not something you want to play with as it can be very harmful to your long-term health.

Can the sun damage you through clothes?

can you still get your vitamin d through a t-shirt?

When the skin receives UVB light it produces a chain reaction that basically gives you your precious vitamin D which is very beneficial to your health and its absence can cause serious medical problems.

So yes, your body does a kind of photosynthesis, but, can wearing a t-shirt stop this process, partially or totally? According to the New York University Langone Medical Center, some fabrics may difficult this process from happening as they are getting in the way of these UVB rays and your skin.

But, you shouldn’t be worried at all, if you normally expose yourself to sunlight for at least a few minutes a day (Which is certain unless you’re locked in a basement) you are fine, what you should be worried about is the damage UV rays can do to your skin, which could be much worse.

If you want to learn more about this matter, be sure to check out this article about Vitamin D.

how to block the sun's ultraviolet (UV) light

Although many times t-shirts protect you from the sun, they are not enough to stay completely safe, and you should not believe that t-shirts protect you in such a way that sunscreen is not needed.

Having said this, the best ways to protect yourself and block the sun’s ultraviolet light are:

  • Avoid long direct exposure to the sun, especially on hot days (You can also check the UV index on your apple watch or the internet).
  • Wear clothes to cover the skin, as we said, t-shirts protect you from the sun, not as much as we would like but they do.
  • Wear sunscreen, this is crucial for protecting your skin from the sun and you should always do it when it’s possible.
  • Wear a hat, this can protect areas in your head that are also vulnerable to sunlight.
  • Wear  UV-blocking sunglasses, which protect areas around your eyes and the eyes themselves, which also need to be protected.

And that’s it! Don’t worry, as long as you’re careful you won’t be at risk, just take care of yourself. Also, if you want to know more about how you can protect yourself from the sun, be sure to check out Cancer.Org on this subject.

How much do t-shirts shrink over time?

How much do t-shirts shrink over time?

why do t-shirts shrink over time?

T-shirts are made from fabrics like cotton and others, who inevitably shrink over time due to the tension that’s applied during the production of the clothing item, when heat is applied to these fabrics, they shrink back to their original size.

This process is not homogenous and the T-shirt shrinks considerably more on the first few washes than in the last ones, when even if you don’t notice, it continues to shrink until it reaches a certain point where the shrinking is negligible

It is also noted that not all fibers shrink at the same rate, and some fibers shrink more slowly while others shrink faster. If you want to learn more about this process, check this article about t-shirt shrinking.

How much do t-shirts shrink over time?

The shrinking that a t-shirt will endure will vary based on the type of material that it is made of, the fabric, the washing process… We have to keep all of these variables in mind in order to determine how much a t-shirt will shrink.

But generally speaking, a cotton t-shirt that has not been pre-shrunk will shrink about 15-20%, getting to 80% of its original size, which can be great if the t-shirt was too small or you are planning to lose weight, but very bad if you just liked the t-shirt the way it was at the beginning.

But that is a lot, and that is why so many stores are selling pre-shrunk cotton t-shirts, which may only shrink up to 5%, which can still be quite a lot if the t-shirt fitted you perfectly at the time of the purchase.

How much do t shirts shrink over time?

what are pre-shrunk cotton t-shirts?

Pre-shrunk cotton t-shirts are manipulated in the production process so that the fibers are already very close to their original shape and they don’t shrink anymore, at least not as much as with pre-shrunk fibers, which can shrink quite a lot.

Unless you plan to lose up to 15-20% of your belly mass, your Tv muscles, your fat… whatever you want to call it; a pre-shrunk cotton t-shirt is your main choice if you still ask yourself why all of your t-shirts shrink. But not only that, pre-shrunk cotton t-shirts are great for many other reasons, Here is why pre-shrunk cotton t-shirts are better than non-pre-shrunk:

  • Pre-shrunk cotton t-shirts are known for holding better their colors.
  • They are absent of the chemicals that may have been used in the production process.
  • Pre-shrunk cotton t-shirts can still shrink, but only up to 2-5% if not washed properly.
  • These garments usually last longer than the other ones because the fibers are not under so much tension.

how to stop your t-shirts from shrinking

We have already discussed why would your t-shirts shrink, but, How can you stop your t-shirts from shrinking? It’s not very hard actually, you only have to follow a few simple steps, Here are the steps to follow to avoid shrinking your t-shirts and garments:

  • Read the label and follow the washing instructions, as improper washing may result in the t-shirt shrinking
  • Dry your clothes without much heat, preferably the old-fashion way, as heat can make a t-shirt shrink.
  • Lower the heat on your washing machine, as we said before, heat makes t-shirts shrink.
  • Buy pre-shrunk t-shirts and save yourself the trouble, this is the easiest fix to this problem.
