Zimbabwe cotton on the left, organic cotton on the right. The fabric is very soft and comfortable but they are more expensive than other Japanese brands.

I've got some old Champions, as well as the Velva Sheen, which are nice.

But I'm with b_F on this - the Warehouse ones are amazing! Thick, soft, with amazing texture. Some fit pics....

I'll throw in some SDA t-shirts tomorrow for comic relief :P

GBOB - Those DW Ts are from a couple seasons ago. The only place that I know still have limited sizes left is j-clothing

Edit: I have a few other japanese repro Ts. I'll try to post those here.

Found this doing a google search. Not sure if these are USA or not but they are 100% cotton and they sell 6.1 and 7 oz. plain tees for CHEAP.

Just received the order I placed two days ago. The 7 oz Champion t-shirts are beautiful; very heavy, very cheap very generously sized. Don't hesitate ordering from these people. edit - be careful with the sizing. I'm so used to ordering from the Japanese companies with their smaller sizes that I ordered XXL. The shoulder width is 27 inches!!

I just bought a loopwheel T by Samarai. My first $75 t-shirt and I blame all you bastards! It's hanging around with the likes of you that led me to this sorry fate!

Still I'll post pictures in a couple of days when I get it.

Great stuff. I really like the Samarai shirts very cool. How'd you get the Peak'd Yellow shirts? Just have to navigate the Japanese websites?

^ Are Peaked Yellow shirts loop-wheeled?

(I ask because I have a couple of B-R-M shirts from the sister label).

^they feel like they are loopwheeled but i dont know for sure though. After a few washes they twist so they could be. (The peak'd yellow shirts feel/wear a lot like the samurai shirts so they could be.) They have great construction, quality is up there like the other japanese lines i got. I got them from rakuten earthmarket i think.

of the shirts the saddlemen fit the smallest, the peakd yellow fit like the samurai shirts. the entry sg shirts fit somewhere inbetween the saddlemen & the samurai shirts, even though all the shirts are tagged XL, (except for one of the peakd yellow shirts tagged XXL)

typical japanese fitting. All shirts are tagged made in japan.

Well I guess I can't ask you how the fit is! It says athletic cut so hopefully they are a fitted cut. The one thing holding me back on the 7oz. is the "C" logo on the left cuff. Is it a removable tag or is it silkscreened or embroidered?

I am wearing one and just looked at the logo. It's a patch which is pressed on with adhesive and I just removed it with a pair of plyers. So, don't sweat the logo. It is NOT fitted, very roomy although I washed them both and put one in the dryer. It shrunk nicely so it fits pretty well. The people are easy to deal with and the shirts are quality as you'd expect from Champion; they've been doing it a long time. Thanks again for the tip.
