I had been looking for slimmer-fitting tee-shirts for some time, and after hearing about American Apparel from some friends, I decided to give their tops a try. I was dissatissfied with the options at the local mall - most tees were either poor quality material or fit extremely baggy in the body.
I ordered five different tees in varying colors. The tees arrived quite promptly, and I was impressed by the color depth in the tee and the feel of the fabric. The jersey cotton was very soft with a lot of elasticity.
When one of these tees fit, they fit great, but the biggest problem is the inconsistency in sizing. Some larges fit like slim larges, some like mediums, and some like extra-larges. I find is shocking that there can be such varied sizing, but I'd recommend against ordering online, and rather trying on in-store, if possible.
Besides that, these are fantastic tee-shirts with great color, and are great building blocks to a well-fit wardrobe.
