A Tee is not just a Tee! Here’s the Difference . . .
Pussers Tees are custom designed and sewn from custom 100% ringspun combed cotton. They are significantly softer and heavier than normal. Most tees are cut from knitted cotton tubing of less than 4-ounces, while Pussers are more than 6-ounces providing a long-lasting garment. Ringspun combed cotton is created by spinning in a way that produces stronger, longer strands that are soft, extremely durable and free from the rough texture of standard raw cotton. The process of spinning, twisting and thinning the cotton strands is what yields the long, soft strands found in ringspun cotton.
Tees that are cut from a lightweight tubular knitted cotton roll, eliminate the need for cutting and sewing separate front and back panels as found only on highest quality tees. To cut costs, makers started eliminating side-seams years ago. But cheaply made tubular shirts can and do develop an annoying twist after several launderings. Not so with a Pussers side-seam tee. Nor does anyone we know offer a Tee with side-seam, taped vents and an embroidered locker hang loop. Other features like our reinforced shoulders can take a tugging, our taped neck seams won’t rub or itch, and our custom designed necks make it easier to get in and out. Our neck designs are more comfortable, eliminating the oft felt feeling having something too tight around your neck. This is why our Crew Neck cut is not round, but an oval, slightly higher at the bottom than a scoop neck, just below the esophagus. And our V-Neck is not so low as to mistaken for an undershirt. Our cut is noticeably higher, but easily accommodates the passage of your head, without anyone mistaking it for an undershirt..
Our shirts are enzyme washed, which minimizes shrinkage, and imparts a worn-in look and feel, and an exceptionally soft hand not found in most Tees.
