T-shirt Size Charts

6th July, 2011

Just because two shirts both say “Adult Large” doesn’t mean they are the same size. This page demonstrates the differences between our most popular t-shirt styles: Gildan® 100% Cotton T-shirts and Gildan® 50/50 T-shirts.

How these charts work

Width is measured across the chest Length is measured across from hem to collar

These charts tell the measurement of the shirt as it lays flat on a table not measurements on a person. “Width” is measured from below where the sleeves connect to the body of the t-shirt and “Length” is measured from the bottom hem to the top of the collar.

    What sizes do you have for children 6yrs and under. The chart looks like it is for older children and above.

  4. […] A better measure is the actual width and length of the garment.  We have a chart online for our most popular garments here: http://www.classb.com/help/305/t-shirt-size-charts […]
