    Decent shirt, slightly blur on back text.

    The shirt was fine. I ordered a large size, and if fit like a large. It wasn't too small or tight or athletic fit like some shirts, but fit well. Fabric was typical for a T-shirt I think. Didn't seem any thicker or thinner than other shirts I have. The quality of the silk screening seems okay. The edge of a letter on the back text is slightly blurred, but it's not a big deal. The front design turned out fine, if a little darker than expected. But it was a black shirt, so that may have been part of it. It looks good otherwise. I haven't washed the shirt yet, but I don't think it will shrink. I tend to hang and air dry shirts that have prints rather than put them in the dryer.

    Runs a little snug

    This product says it is Unisex and typically Unisex sizes are the same as men's sizing. My mom typically wears a Large in a men's t-shirt and they are loose and nice fitting. She got a large in this t-shirt and when she put it on, it was very tight. I typically wear a medium in men's but wasn't sure about the fitting on this tee so I ordered a large and it fit perfectly. Moral of the story is...don't assume this shirt is like a men's size. It runs smaller and you'll be disappointed. BUT don't think of it has women's sizing either...I wear an XL in women's....gotta find a common ground I guess. It's always a little difficult when ordering something online and not getting to try it on.

    Excellent quality

    I haven't washed this one yet, but being 100% cotton I am almost guaranteeing it to shrink a little. It feels like excellent fabric and a very nice cut. The neck does not appear that it will fray or become overly worn like other comparable options of shirts. These are a big hit with our crew.

    Very comfortable. Slightly thin. Very good fit.

    These are the only shirts that have a nice for. The sleeves done shrink and don't have that 'flaps up' look that most shirts have. They are very soft. Only complaint is that different colors have different variation in size. Some could be significant. Also the fabric is very thin and great for summer but may be too thin for durability.

    Does NOT run big

    I thought these shirts would be very light weight and soft. They were thicker and heavier than I was expecting and they seem to run a little small actually. I checked before ordering and it said they run big, and to order a size smaller. My husband ordered an XL (the size he usually orders) and it is fitted :) so it's tighter than he would like. I washed in cold water and air dried it. He hasn't had it on again since.

    I was really impressed with the speed abad quality! The jersey was a little thicker then I thought it would be but am happy we chose that over the thicker cotton.

    Nice, high quality T shirt.

    I thought the large was going to be way baggy when I pulled it out of the package, but after washing it was actually right on point.

    2001 American Apparel Tees

    I've noticed the black 2001 American Apparel Tees tend to run a little smaller than the rest of the colors. Other than that, these are AWESOME shirts - they fit well and are super comfortable.

    Today, a little form fit is the the way. American Apparel has that slightly form fitting look but is very classic looking.

    American Made

    I always buy American Apparel products when they are available. Not only is it a high quality product that you can see and feel, but keeping Americans working and making a decent wage so that HOPEFULLY they will take their paycheck and buy products that keep other Americans working is the right thing to do.

    Exponent Clothing Collection

    The quality of the shirt is great. It is comfortable and you could wear it with almost any casual or street wear outfit. It runs a little big so my suggestion is to buy one size smaller from your typical shirt size.

    Very High Quality Shirts

    Very nice, vibrant colors! These shirts were thicker than the American Apparel jersey t-shirt I expected. I think the thinner shirts are more comfortable, but these will definitely last longer.

    2013 Blue Cotton Shirt

    After searching through several sites, I decided on using Blue Cotton because their website was easy to use. The instructions for designing the t shirt were easily understood, and the shirt looks exactly like the design online. We got a very good deal as far as pricing goes as well. Other websites had less impressive design stations and higher priced shirts.

    Good shirt, soft, runs a litttle big, but shrinks

    These shirts are very soft. They are a unisex fit, so they are nice and roomy. I ordered 10 shirts for a bunch of girls and they ended up being a little bigger than we thought, but since they're 100% cotton, they did shrink a little. Also, they're pretty long, but again, not a big deal to me.

    Soft, Comfortable, and Affordable

    These shirts are incredibly soft and are really comfortable to wear. They do run a bit big but in the end they fit just fine. I normally like my shirts a bit on the snug side and these have more a loose flowing feeling to them. Still very high quality and worth the extra money if you are looking for a truly quality product.

    Very Nice Shirt

    Very nice T that is soft and comfortable. If you don't mind paying a little extra I highly recommend American Apparel. Be sure to order one size up though as they tend to run a little small in the larger sizes.

    Love this shirt - got some for work and everyone loved them. Very soft and comfortable. Fits true to size, but definitely a slim silhouette, not boxy like some other t-shirts. Printing looks great on it! Colors are clear and vibrant.

    American Apparel Jersey Review

    These shirts are very soft and so comfy. They did a shrink a little. Mine was a little too big, so it worked out for me, but one of my employees' shirts was a little small for him and then it shrank, so it didn't work out so well for him! Another employee had a large hole in the seam of the neckline after about a month, but nobody else had any issues. Overall, this shirt is good quality and was a perfect solution for a casual uniform for our retail store.

    Very nice T Shirt

    Very high quality T-Shirt. Color was very close to color shown online. Size is accurate. Cotton is smooth, and has a medium weight to it. Color stays with washing, and shrinks ever so slightly - 100% cotton. Best T-Shirts I've found for quite a while. Would definitely buy again.

    the American apparel t shirts are excellent quality they just run really small, so i would suggest ordering a size or two up from you normally wear just to be on the safe side. but overall they have a really nice fit, not to baggy and not too tight, they are just right

    Very Impressed

    I made shirts on bluecotton.com for myself and family members (13 of us in all) to wear on our upcoming cruise. We did this dorky shirt matching thing on our last cruise and so of course we're going to do it again :) I was very impressed with the quality of the shirt, the thickness was perfect! The delivery was very fast! I did wash mine and my husbands shirts, however I didn't dry them- they still fit perfectly! Overall, I am very impressed and I will use bluecotton.com again for our next cruise for our matchy matchy boarding shirts!

    Surprisingly big, but good fabric

    American Apparel is known for running small, so I ordered extra sizes in the larger range, and very few in the small range. To my surprise, these T-shirts ran large, so I've got way too many big Ts. Fabric feels soft and drapey.

    Love the fit, quirky sleeves!

    The American Apparel t shirts have a quirk on the sleeve. The stitching makes a crease that's hard to iron out and if you don't iron it, it just creases automatically. It's the same on every one of the shirts.

    Runs small

    I loved the color and feel of this shirt (super soft), however, for unisex sizing it runs small. A few men in my group couldn't fit into the size they normally wear. For women it's true to size though..

    Runs a little tight, maybe?

    This is the second time I've ordered this type of shirt. It feels nice, very durable. But either it runs a little tight before washing, or I'm getting bigger! Haha, take my review with a grain of salt, it's great material.

    Changed for the better.

    First year we had the shirt it was a little snug but not too bad. This year the shirts seem to run on the small side. No I did not grow or get any heavier. Is denial a sign something is wrong? Oh no do I sound defensive?
