    In looking for a good work shirt I did a lot of research and have come across many review sites and forums of people raving about the quality and high level standard that the Carhartt Brand carries. I settled on them and figured they would be the best bet. Unfortunately they didn’t deliver upon my first impression and for the price I couldn’t warrant keeping them to test them long term.

    For those wondering – yes sizing does run a bit larger. You may want to size down depending on your body type. I have wider shoulders but a very narrow waist with a more athletic frame. I generally wear a men’s medium but may need to push to a large depending on the shoulders/neck. With the recommendations by other reviewers I actually went down to a Small and it fit fairly well. If you are broader in the shoulders and thicker build you may get away with exact sizing or may want to go a size down, if you are simply “tall” and not necessarily broad – sizing down may be the better option. The shirts are longer intentionally so keep that in mind – they can be loose or tucked in but are intended to prevent you from showing off your mid drift or back when bending/stretching.

    Now sizing aside, I did not care for the design and quality of the shirt at all. I ordered two of the same shirts 1 Port and 1 Peat. The shirts were made in two different countries and this was clearly apparent in the quality and materials used. The Peat seemed to be the thicker of the two, whereas the Port was considerably thinner and lighter. So I don’t know how much reliability there is in claiming these are 6.75 oz shirts. As well the cotton simply felt like regular big box store “budget” cotton. There was absolutely nothing special about the cotton it felt like a generic cotton shirt and even slightly stiff/scratchy. I have shirts that have retailed only a couple bucks that have a heavier cotton and thicker material with a softer feel.

    Another thing that was annoying was that the design and length of the sleeves (long) caused the shirt pull/lift up and bunch in the shoulders every single time you raised your arms to parallel or higher. Seemed odd to me that a shirt designed for movement and workwear would be such a hassle to move and work in. Now this could possibly be reduced by a few washes and a fair bit of fabric softener and “breaking” the shirt in over a longer period of time but that seems counterproductive to have to breakdown a shirt that’s supposed to last you a long time. Again I’ve had many shirts that have never done that and I’ve not needed to break them in.

    On a positive note I will say the stitching seems fairly robust, you get multiple seams along the base, neck and sleeves. And whether it’s for workwear or “fashion” the Carhartt sewn on patch gives a nice premium look to the clothing.

    Overall, at ~55$ for 2 shirts I wouldn’t personally recommend these. I’m sure their few USA made products and the quality of their products a decade prior hold up but my with my initial experience not so much. If Carhartt opens up manufacturing in the USA/Canada as opposed to importing/outsourcing labour to several countries I feel like that would improve the quality control as well as using better materials to start with. Also I don’t see why they can’t just size true fit and then recommend people go up a size for “increased” mobility. Calling a “large” a medium just makes it confusing and more of pain when ordering online.

    A great line for fat (husky?) men to feel skinny. You’re a XXL? Now you’re a Large.

    Also a major designer for soft muted tones with calculator pockets for when the numbers get over your head on the front step calibration of the house your Carpentering.

    In a sea of nonsense there are men who wear this brand to just not gaf.

    If you don’t gaf hit buy now. In seafoam green, or perhaps wintered cranberry…pick a colour of your IDGAF mood and be the EMO of 2020.

    Habia comprado hace unas semanas una talla XL, aun a pesar de leer todas las resenas advirtiendome que venia muy amplia, y pidiera una L, lo ignore.

    En efecto la talla XL, viene muuuuuuy sobrada, Incluso siendo gordo acostumbrado a las XL en lo general ( 100kg / 1.69 cms) siento que viene demasiado amplia, tengo que fajarmela de otra forma parezco cholo en domingo..

    2ndo intento, compre una L, de largo todo bien, pero viene un poco mas limitada de los costados por el pecho, asi que tienes esa sensacion de que no te queda tan bien.

    Mucho texto: Si eres gordo que usa XL normalmente, no te vayas por la L pensando que venceras el sistema (roto) de tallas, no lo hagas! o tendras una sensacion de que aprieta (aun que realmente no aprieta, solo es el snetimiento de que esta mas pegada al cuerpo)

    Salu-2 mis gordos del mundo

    I bought two of these t-shirts in different colours as a gift for my son and he was delighted with them. He likes the fit and the quality.

    Big fan or Carhartt. I love every product of theirs that I own. I am only putting this rating up to hopefully have someone investigate a potential product issue. I believe that a bunch of 3XL shirts in black were mislabelled or some other defect. I have initiated a return for this product. If you check the picture I uploaded the grey shirt is a normal 3XL, the black shirt is also labelled as 3XL, but you’ll notice it is significantly smaller. Another review commented with the same issue, so I would be wary of ordering this shirt in black until this issue is solved and the erroneous products are replaced. I own a bunch of Carhartt items in this size and the Carhartt Mens Big & Tall Workwear Pocket Short-Sleeve T-Shirt Original Fit K87 has been the only one way off in size, which leads me to believe there is a mislabel. Thanks!

    It’s hard to explain the experience of “fit as expected” when you are used to buying extra-large just so you have enough length in your t-shirts. I am on the tall side, and when I tried the shirt on (Large/Tall – ordered from Amazon without having tried anywhere else first) as was actaully excited I could wear a Large and have it fit generously in the length while also fitting my shoulders and neck correctly. According to my age, gender, height I am currently at an ‘ideal’ BMI yet this is the first t-shirt that actually fits me; I was actaully nicknamed “half-shirt” once upon a time because the average stanfield/CK/fruit of the loom are simply too stumpy in the cut for me. The only reason I gave the shirt 4 out of five is that the cotton is a very heavy weight, so this shirt is not for summer use even though it is 100 % cotton.

    Sizing is clearly in American standards. The large I received was comparable to a XXL. I am 6’1 and 190lbs, when I tried on the shirt, it was down to my knee caps sleeves rest beyond my elbow. Also found it suspicious that there were no tags on the shirt- is it authentic? Who knows, can’t wear it anyways.

    Will wait to wear this shirt until baggy clothes become the trend again- or I’ll regift to a larger person.

    En lo general, utilizo tallas XL, en algunas marcas muy reducidas XXL.

    Basado en la tabla de medidas de Carhartt mismo me fui por la XL (de cintura ando alrededor de las 44″). Sinceramente se siente muy sobrada de talla, llo cual siempre se agradece, pero si no estas acostumbrado a andar tan holgado puede que sea molesto.

    La misma pagina de soporte/medidas de Carhartt te dice que NO te vayas por la talla mas chica si estas ‘entre medidas’ de las de su tabla, pero me deja pensando aun asi su la talla L me vendria un poco mejor…

    La proxima que compre creo que hare la prueba con ella. Peor escenario, la regreso e intercambio por una XL de nuevo

    Nonostante non sia il primo prodotto di Carhartt acquistato, non ho ritrovato il prodotto che mi aspettavo. La maglia presenta una vestibilità davvero larga (ho acquistato una taglia L) ed un cotone molto pesante rispetto alla norma. Consiglio l’utilizzo nei luoghi di lavoro dove il calore e la praticità di movimento prevalgono sull’estetica.

    Unfortunately this item is labelled as a M, but fits way larger than expected. I have other Carhartt Men’s Original Fit clothing in the same size, which fit perfectly, but this particular T-Shirt is massive. Very wide at the bottom, baggy shoulders, and loose all over. I tried washing it in hot water and drying it on high heat but it didn’t work at all. So disappointed.

    I ordered many carhartt t-shirts in other colors from amazon in the past and the fit and quality was always good. For some reason, the fit of the white one is way too big. I ordered a medium like I always do and the fit was like a large, maybe even an extra-large. Also, the shoulders were not the same width and the seams inside the sleeves were all crooked with some extra fabric not cut off. I don’t know if there’s a problem with quality control or if it was just this batch but I ordered five and they were all like that so I had to return them all. Very disappointing for a good brand like carhartt.

    This is simply a great t-shirt.
    It is heavier cotton, so better for the cool to colder months. It is very nicely stitched.
    The length is great for taller men. It is so hard to find good lengths for taller men.
    Nice colours too.
    The only thing I did not like, and it’s a personal thing, is the small brand logo stitched on the pocket. I just wish it was not there at all.
    It is hard to buy good quality t-shirts off the net, that fit nicely , so I wrote this to help other consumers.
