Hems roll up and look bad
October 18, 2018
I have purchased and worn Gildan cotton tee shirts for many years, decades really. These are disappointing. For specificity, I note these particular shirts were manufactured in Nicaragua, unlike Gildan shirts that I am happy with that were made in other countries.
I won't make the mistake of buying Gildan shirts anymore unless I can inspect the garments in person first.
I purchased shirts in 3 different colors through two separate orders. I have the same reaction to all shirts in all colors.
FABRIC IS A BIT STIFF (award 4 stars): First the good things: Fabric quality is pretty good, though a bit stiffer-feeling than other Gildan tees I currently own. Take off 1 star for stiffness.
GOOD STITCHING (award 5 stars): All the sewing and stitching seem to be well executed.
VIBRANT COLOR( award 5 stars): The color is vibrant and seems durable after several washings already.
UNCOMFORTABLE TAGS IN BACK OF NECK (award 2 stars): The fabric tags at the back of the neck are irritating. I removed them from every shirt. Plus, they are long skinny tags sewn in along one short side, so they always stick up out the back of the neck if not removed.
SLEEVE AND WAIST HEMS ROLL UP (award 1 star): The hems on the sleeves and the waist roll up and stay up. They are hard to roll down. The more the shirts are laundered, the worse the rolling and staying rolled becomes. This makes the shirts a real chore to tuck in and unkempt looking at the sleeves when wearing.
