Men's heavyweight t-shirt that gives you room to move.

Our pocket t-shirt debuted in 1992, and its rugged cotton design and clean looks made it a fast favorite among the hard-working folks who pulled it on. Though decades and trends have come and gone, there's a reason the K87 remains a classic. This men's t-shirt is made with heavyweight cotton built to handle tough days on the job. It has an original fit that gives you room to move and a soft feel that only gets better with time.

Best work apparel made.
I have worn Carhartt in one form or another in my 45 yrs. as a mechanic in Iowa. From boots,hooded sweatshirts,insulated over costs etc. Best clothing for me in all kinds of weather! If you work in cold weather, Carhartt is a must.

Too heavy for 80 degree weather?
A shopper on Apr 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I've been using these outside while throwing heavy materials, on days where it's dry and hot these bad boys are amazing, granted you can't be afraid of the sweat. Their loose so they give you some draft but they retain moisture and it may not be great for some people but it's a lot cooler than shirts that stay dry. However work in rain or humidity is pretty bad in these shirts, once their soaked they stay soaked so be careful on when you use these. One of the toughest materials out there though.
Is the weight of the shirt too heavy for AZ?
A shopper on Apr 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I work in a theme park, here in PA, doing theatrical lighting and audio. Most of the heavy work we do is end of September and I’ve worn the T-shirts on those days and never overheated. It’s probably one of the best work shirts I’ve ever had. It is a little heavier, but fits perfectly enough that the air flows nicely and the fabric breathes quite easily as well.
