Shirt information and sizes

Making sure that you get the right shirt for you
We offer several different kinds of fabrics for our crewneck shirts. Watch the video above for a quick explanation.
The poly-cotton blend we offered has received rave reviews since Day 1.  Browse the reviews and you’ll see people talking about how soft the shirts are and how they are their “new favorite shirt.”

If you are used to a traditional 100% cotton shirt, however, these will seem thin and lightweight, so if you prefer a thick t-shirt or a 100% cotton shirt, avoid all of the poly-cotton shirts and look for shirts that are 100% cotton. 

If you’re intrigued by but unsure of the poly-cotton shirts, this may help: The shirts are cooler than the 100% cotton shirts and they are just as durable. When I launched History Camp, I printed a t-shirt for the event and used 100% cotton heavyweight shirts. When our third year rolled around, I had requests for a lighter t-shirt, similar to the fashion t-shirts people were getting in stores.  That’s when I tried the poly-cotton shirt from Next Level and saw immediately why so many people preferred it.  It was more comfortable and cooler, and it draped well.  When I started The History List Store, I printed on the same poly-cotton shirt and the glowing reviews poured in.
