About Your T-Shirt

Homegrown T

Your product is made, from dirt-to-shirt, in the USA from 100% ringspun cotton.

Uniquely Yours

Your shirt is uniquely labeled, and no shirt now or in the future will ever have that same number. From that number you can derive an enormous amount of information, found right on this site, about who made your shirt, and how.

Dependable Sizing

Most products you buy might be the same size off the rack, but can become dramatically different after wash. Your shirt has been engineered to fit the same every time - after shrinkage. And because we garment dye each and every tee, it will fit right out of the box, and stay that way forever.

reinforced seam

Reinforced Seams

Your shirt is made with durability in mind. Every seam is sewn with high quality, 100% cotton thread designs to flex and move with you. An extra safety stitch is added throughout for added strength, and to prevent runs.

shoulder-to-shoulder tape

Shoulder-to-Shoulder Tape

Your shirt is held up by your shoulders, which means those seams experience the most stress during normal wear. Reinforcement along the shoulders and back neck is essential for making sure your new favorite tee stays that way for the long haul. We use a flat piece of fabric called "neck tape" to add both the necessary reinforcement, and a nice finished look in the collar.

Chain Stitch

We pay attention to finish details when engineering your shirt. A single needle stitch around the collar helps keep the seam flat, which makes the shirt more comfortable and better looking.

Your Supply Chain

USA Cotton

Cotton Farm, Cotton Gin

100% of the cotton in this supply chain is grown and ginned in the USA. In addition to the beneficial economic impact of buying from our neighbors, US cotton cultivation also adheres to cutting edge sustainability standards that rival any in the rest of the developed world.

From no-till planting to reduced water consumption and increased land use efficiency, US cotton growers are consistently raising the bar of responsible farming practices. You can learn more about US cotton sustainability efforts, along with their 10-year improvement plan, here.

In addition, the USDA keeps a careful watch on cotton growers and gins, and tests every bale of cotton to certify an accurate measurement of tha bale's quality characteristics, guaranteeing a consistent product from bale-to-bale.
