    8000 Gildan - Athletic

    I am very satisfied with this shirt. I say it runs a bit small, but that's a positive in my book. Most of the individuals wearing the shirt do it during athletic events, so a snug fit is good.

    Gildan 50/50

    We wore the shirts for a Tough Mudder, and they held up great and even came clean afterwards. They were a good buy for the price and quality.

    Holds Up Well

    Holds up well. Ordered black shirts which were worn and washed weekly for a year and the black held pretty well, as did the two-color printing. The printed image did begin to crack towards the end of the year, but that's not surprising.

    I went with the 50/50 for a little more softness and less shrinking. I am glad I did. These are probably my favorite Gildan t-shirts so far. Prior to this order, I had only used 100% cotton.

    Hot Mess

    I always by Gildan 50/50 tees. They do not fade and do not shrink! Great for team jerseys since you tend to wear/wash them a lot.

    Good quality

    Shirt seemend to run a little smaller than expected, but that actually worked well in my case. It wasn't as soft as I thought it was going to be though.

    The comfortable t-shirt I was looking for

    Just the perfect comfortable shirts I was looking for. In years past we've ordered shirts from different local company's & all the shirts were too thick & stiff & just not comfy to wear around often. They did run a little big (I thought- some others didn't) but wasn't a problem at all. I thought they would shrink some but maybe I need to wash a few more times. No big deal, will be wearing it often! Melanie

    Shirt Review

    The shirt quality was fantastic. I always go with a 50/50 blend on shirts. Very soft and never shrink.

  • By

    on 05/24/2013

    OK but not great

    Colors for my custom graphic matched my expectations. Fabric was not as soft as I was hoping; it was kind of scratchy to the touch. Maybe that's just the nature of this 50/50 blend. And fabric was a bit lighter weight that I had hoped.

    Very pleased

    We ordered these shirts because they are thinner than the Gildan Ultra Cotton that we've gotten in the past. And it is thinner, but I didn't rate it as a "Thin" tshirt because you can't see through it. I was a little worried, especially with the lighter color, that they might be slightly see-through, but they aren't - they're perfect. Also, they seem a little longer than the Gildan Ultra Cotton, which is great because we wear these while working (we own a house painting business) and they don't seem to ride up as much. Also, the arm holes aren't as big and we are pleased with that and the neck hole doesn't creep up and choke you either, like it does with some other cheaper tshirts we've had over the years. The Gildan 50/50 Dryblend is shaped and feels more like an American Apparel tshirt at a fraction of the price! They are light, soft and comfortable - perfect for work this summer. After washing they shrunk just a tiny bit - barely noticeable. The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars is that the Dark Heather grey color I ordered for my daughter is actually BLUE and she is NOT pleased about that! But the other colors we ordered were true to what we saw on the screen (tan, dark chocolate, navy, forest green, heliconia.)

    Tshirts are lightweight and comfortable. I felt like they ran a little big but not terrible. Mine did shrink slightly when washed and dried but only lenghtwise which was actually a good thing. Color is very nice and vibrant.

    Blue Cotton - Tops in my book.

    I have used Blue Cotton the last three years to design t-shirts for our VisionWalk fundraising team. The tools in the Design Studio are easy to use and make ideas come to reality. The quality of the shirts and printing are top notch. The 3 year old shirts still look as good as day one. My thanks to everyone at Blue Cotton, I plan to use Blue Cotton for my future custom shirt needs.

    Perfect Experience

    We picked the 8000 Gildan DryBlend 50/50 tee because we liked the feel of the thinner fabric. We live in Texas where it is 100 degrees in the summer and the shirt was for a summer water polo team. So, the shirts were perfect.

    Not my favorite tee shirt I have purchased but still not bad. I might change my mind if it wears well. I thought it was a little on the thin side but it still looked great.

    The t-shirt is very brightly colored and the design came out perfectly. The colors are very true to what you see on the computer screen. The shirt sizes seemed to be a little larger than usual (we ordered the same shirt last year) and feel kind of thin, but overall, we are pleased with the product.

    Very Satisfied

    The t-shirts turned out great. The writing on the shirts turned out smaller than expected, which would have most likely been fixed if I had more experience with ordering online tshirts or used the contacts I was given to ask for help. Before washing the shirts for the first time, they do look a little big and really thin, but post-wash they fit great!

    Gold short sleeve t-shirt

    The shirt was of good quality. It was suppose to be an extra large but was more like a 2X.

    Soft, durable t-shirt; true to size!

    We ordered the black t-shirts. Although they haven't been washed much to date, they seem to retain their deep color so far (haven't faded). The fabric is very soft and even after washing AND drying, it doesn't seem to have shrunk at all. I actually bought the 2XL for me because I like to dry my shirts and wanted to take some shrinkage into the equation. If it has shrunk, it's only by a little, but I truly can't tell. I like the Gildan t-shirts.

    Exactly as expected

    The t-shirts I ordered were exactly as expected based on the description on the website. We washed them before we wore them and they may have shrunk a little bit, but they seemed pretty true to size. They quality was good and they weren't too thick or thin. They turned out to be exactly as expected.

    i love bluecotton.com!

    I purchased 22 shirts for my cheerleading team with our team name on the front and each person's customized name on the back. when I got the shirts they were PERFECT and just how I wanted them to look. the quality of the t-shirt is also very good, but the adult sizes looked a little bit big at first. after washing the shirt they shrink a very little amount to the appropriate size. i am very happy with the service i received and i will definitely be purchasing things from this website in the future!

    Gildan 5.5 survey

    I have ordered both the 6.1oz and 5.5oz Gildan t-shirts. The quality of the 5.5oz surprised me when I compared it to the 6.1oz - a good surprise. I would recommend using the 5.5oz with no concern for receiving a poor quality garment.

    Nice, light weight and breathable shirt.

    Previous to ordering this shirt, I have usually ordered from the Ultra Cotton (2000) series. I've gotten great feeback from many of the people who purchased a shirt (I order about 300/year). I, along with those I heard back from, prefer this shirt to the 2000 series because it's a generally lighter shirt than the other and it doesn't fit so snuggly around the stomach area. It's still true to size (a small person fits the small shirt), but it seems looser than the 2000 (in a positive way). Personally, I'm in between a S and M and struggle finding t-shirts that actually fit well. This shirt fits me and it also fits the individuals that are true smalls. Two thumbs way up.

    Price or convenience

    You do pay more than normal for a lettered shirt here than you would at a store, however to be able to just order online and ship for free, if someone is far, is convenient. If you live close to a store where you can pick it up yourself I would not order offline.

    If your looking for a soft, thin t-shirt this is it. Its not see-through thin, but its not thick and stiff either. To me it has that perfect "tshirt" feel. I have worn softer tshirts but not without spending a LOT more. These are the perfect shirt, and the price is excellent.
