The shirt is washed multiple times before it is custom decorated, so it will have a fashionably worn heathered appearance upon arrival. Because of the dying process, don’t wash it with other colors, at least for the first few times. The fit is casual, not too tight, and most Broken Arrow customers really appreciate the way it looks and feels. It is ranked number 5 as our most popular t-shirts.

8. Fruit of the Loom 3930R

If the cheapest price is what matters the most to you, this shirt is the way to go. Available in 55 colors, it’s made from high-density 5-ounce jersey cotton, which means the clarity of your screen printed design will be exceptional. The shirt is pre-shrunk, and features a standard cut, not fitted. Fruit of the Loom is still one of the best T-shirt brands year after year due to its affordability and durability.

9. Next Level 3600
