My favorite tee shirt
SampledPurchased

Possibly my favorite thing that has arrived in a BirchBox. Substantial material. The grey is understated and comfortable. I've bought a few more after getting one in a box.

Simply the best
SampledPurchased

I am a HUGE fan of Alternative Apparel and part of that reason is because of these shirts. Dress them up or down. They are so soft. I love them.

Great Shirt
Purchased

Great, super-soft shirt. Love the fit, as it doesn't have the really short sleeves you sometimes find on "modern" or slim-fit tees. I have the gray and rose, looking forward to spring to wear these regularly.

In all honesty, I probably wouldn't pay $28 for a cotton t-shirt (one was in a box, other was from credit), but I believe this is a blend.

Super comfortable and well fitting. I've bought this in nearly every color after getting it in my box.

Good fit and stays true after washing
Sampled

A soft, simple, and comfortable t-shirt. It has survived many a washing without stretching out. The fit is a bit on the tighter side -- which I like, but might not be for everyone.

Great Quality but sizing is not even close

Received this as part of my monthly box in XL and was not even close to fitting me. It resembled a boys size. It was a sample that was not useful to me at all. Company has to re-evaluate their sizing.

Great looking, soft, but not durable. Tight.
Sampled

I'm 5'8", 175, military but not stacked.
Pro: super comfortable and looks great. Soft and form fitting. The right length, not too long.
Con: as advertised, runs a size small. After a couple washes it's already starting to lose its shape.
Verdict: might buy in the future, but wish it came in v-neck.

Very comfortable
Sampled

I was actually impressed about how comfortable it was to wear. I thought it would be just a plain cheap shirt but it is nice quality. I would recommend on buying this shirt from a guy who is picking about buying clothes.

Great for men--not so good for women.
Purchased

The shirt is soft--that's true. The color is nice and it's definitely durable. But the collar is really high. it's not particular comfortable because the collar comes up so high. It also has a very boxy shape. I think it's really more of a men's shirt and not one that can be worn unisex.

LOVE IT
Sampled

I received this shirt as a sample in one of my subscription boxes, and it has since become one of my go-to wardrobe staples. The fabric is sturdy and warm, and the shirt is well-tailored. I absolutely love it and plan to order more.
