Shirt information and sizes

If this is your first shirt order
Most of the shirts we offer are a poly-cotton blend that 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.  And 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. As of this writing, you’ll find 100% cotton shirts in our white “1776” and white “Life, liberty and the pursuit of history" designs.
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 from Next Level and the glowing reviews poured in. Today we use that shirt for all our designs except when we need a solid white shirt, because the only way to get a solid white is with a 100% cotton shirt.

The measurements below are with the garments laying flat.

The best way to determine the right size for you is to lay out your favorite t-shirt, measure it, and match the measurements up with what you see in the table for the shirt you're interested in.
