Combed Cotton, the affordable smooth feel in a traditional garment.
The T-shirt evolved from undergarments used in the 19th century, through cutting the one-piece union suit underwear into separate top and bottom garments.
This made the top long enough to tuck under the waistband of the bottoms.
As slip-on garments without buttons, they originally became popular in the United States when they were issued by the U.S. Navy during or following the Spanish–American War of 1898.
These were a crew-necked, short-sleeved, white cotton undershirt to be worn under a uniform, and unless we grow a third arm, it’s the same garment used today in a trillion different environments.
Of course the quality has improved significantly over the last few years, the styling has made this garment become a fashion staple, everyone has a few.
Best and most common decoration is the traditional screen print, combed cotton tees excel with traditional hand prints, direct to garment applications and transfers.
The once ‘humble’ tee is now a fashion icon available in so many cuts and styles from fashion to practical, and priced accordingly.
There are also various different types of cotton fabrics available from combed through to the less fine carded cotton.
Whether you are needing a Tee for an Event,a uniform, a sponsor, club or Team, these days the possibilities are endless.
Sports & Fitness…let’s not forget the 100% Polyester moisture wicking performance tees and singlets available now for fitness fashion, training and competing.
These garments are the real deal, taking moisture off your body by natural air movement keeping you drier and more comfortable.
Let’s not forget that the best garments on the market including the big retail brands have anti-microbial or anti-bacterial treatment on the yarn to keep your garment fresh wash after wash, wear after wear (some of the lower cost brands use a spray on anti-bacterial treatment that only is effective for a few washes, unlike Aussie Pacific. Because of the moisture wicking, these garments dry very fast after washing requiring less care.
It’s the 5 groove DriWear yarn that allows the transfer of moisture through the garment to evaporate by natural body movement.
The best decoration to take advantage of a full moisture removal is Dye Sublimation on a made up white garment as there is nothing stopping or blocking the air flow because only the polymer in the yarn has been recoloured.
Other options that reduce the wicking ability where the image is printed include direct printing, plastisol transfers or digitally printed vinyls.
