HELPFUL

TERMS

TOLERANCE

PRE-SHRUNK

The slight difference in length and width between two garments that are made to the same specifications. Tee shirts are still cut and sewn by hand, so it's common for there to be slight differences in proportion between them, even if they're from the same company. Commonly, the tolerance is most noticeable in the length of the tee. This difference doesn't mean the tees are defective. Tolerance is allowed in the process and should be expected.

Sending the garments through a shrinking process to prevent further shrinkage during routine wash and wear. All modern garments are preshrunk, but they could shrink slightly further. Most customers do not notice any additional shrinkage, but we encourage everyone to follow the care instructions to prevent issues.

GARMENT DYED

FABRIC CONTENT

Tees that are washed and dyed after they have been sewn, as opposed to dyed bolts of fabric. Garment dyed tees have a "lived in" look and feel because of the rigorous process of they go through after the shirt is assembled. Garment dyed tees, therefore, have the highest percentage of tolerance.

The type of material(s) used in the weaving of the garment fabric. The most common tee shirts are 100% cotton, a cotton / polyester blend, or a triblend made from cotton / polyester / rayon. No fabric type is inherently better than another. Each has their own budget and quality versions. As far as fit, feel, and performance, this is mostly a matter of customer preference.
