Loopwheeled/Vintage T-Shirts

Recommended Posts

Just washed one of my Whitesville tees for the first time. Hand washed with Dr Bronners, 30 degrees C as per tag. Shrunk about 2 inches in the length and about an inch in width and arms. It fit perfectly pre-wash so it's too small now.

No probs. I'll size up next time to allow for shrinkage.

That's a shame, don't give up on them though, they're great shirts.

Just a heads up, I was in SESF the other day. They're carrying some Whitesville tees now; don't think they're on the webshop just yet.

I think they're sold in store only if I remember correctly.

Last week, I went a bit crazy and bought 6 t-shirts...1 strike gold, 1 barns outfitters, 2 iron heart and 2 flat head. I have washed the Barns Outfitters one, which I hope will shrink considerably as I bought a larger size, hopefully it works out.

 

Anyway for me, the Strike Gold tee is the best fit. It's just a shame that I do not like any of their other t-shirt prints. It's apparently loopwheeled.

Yeah I did not care for the Strike Gold prints this go around.  You bought my favorite but I'd like it better if it didn't have the Indian portrait on the front.

 

I like some of the t-shirts Tenryo is putting out but I'm not sure how the quality/fit/material compares to TSG

Got my Tezomryas in 185 also. Three of them, one indigo, one blue, one natural. They fit my shoulders, chest, and waist great, but they are a little long. Sleeves are long too.

I worked it out by wearing around the house for a few days, then gave them a hot wash. Got decent shrink in all areas, and the chest, shoulders, and waist relaxed back to pre wash size. I imagine the lengths would also if my body dictated the need.

Extremely comfortable, and the depth of colors is great. I see these as being my go-to after a little wear and a few washes.

was my intentions to get the 175 got mixed up somehow wrote wrong measurements on size when converting from cm to inches.my chest is only 39inches.

expensive lesson..

nice to know they shrink a little also.

I just measured my undyed tees from last year that have been through countless washes and dries in the machines. For 170 they measured 60 cm length and 48.5 cm chest. Basically a 4 cm shrink in length and 1.5 cm stretch in chest (from constant wear) when compared to the size charts. 

I highly recommend these shirts, the seams on the shoulders are placed further forward so that the drape on your body is much more natural causing the front to rest flat and the back to take up the extra space which creates a nice silhouette. The sleeves are a bit long and wide, but that's fixed by just rolling them up.

well, I ordered a 185 and plan to just treat it like my underwear so hopefully I get 2" shrink on the length front and I'll be golden.  Looking forward to getting the shirt, been thinking about a Tezomeya for a few years at this point.

ok. i might just get the 185cm size and hot wash and dry and forget about tender loving care

I am a 175 on the Tezo's, I think a 185 would be huge on you. i am 178 cm and float around 90 kilos/14 stones for reference, I am sure you're slimmer than me!

I also suggest to not hot wash those shirts, the colour fades away much quicker with hot washes. I wash mine at 30 degrees C.

I have both 185 and 175 tezo shirts, here is a couple pics on how they fit me for anyone who is interested. I am 6'2" and around 190lbs for reference.

Thanks for the pics pp.

What is your cleaning and drying regimen?

I like to wear my t-shirts at the length of the 185 you have on. Sleeve length looks the same on both sizes?

Sleeve length and shoulders are both a touch shorter on the 175 but not a huge difference. Biggest difference is in the chest and length. I just throw the shirts in with the rest of my general laundry and wash and dry on medium settings. Both of these have been washed and dried at least 30 times or so.

I have a couple 185's and they're just way too long in the body for me.

I fear the 175 would be too slim, need to get a few more Tezomeya tees though. They're great.

Shortening a T shirt seems like it would be easy and cheap. I bet a local dry-cleaners/alterations place could take care of that for you.

yeaI sent an email hoping to be able to switch to a 175.  The measurements for the 185 seemed good, maybe a bit long.  Im just afraid of a t shirt thats too short haha

can you give a real world length measurement for both sizes please?  

based on tezo's web site a 175cm has a 39" chest and a 27" length.  The 185 has a 43" chest and is around 29" long.
