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.

Great shirts just ordered the wrong size
It's my fault but the shirts I ordered were way too long and I look ridiculous in them. I love the durability of the shirts and they're very comfortable. next time I'll know not to order the tall version of these shirts.

Excellent quality and fit
I think that Carhartt Pocket T-shirts are the best for wear and comfort. They use heavy cotton and the fit is for both style and durability. I bought 15 of these 5 years ago and except for stains and puncture holes, there are no tears or seams come undone. In addition, each shirt has been washed and worn 120 times or more. Also, the pocket is big, holds as much as you can put into it. I have lots of Carhartt clothing just because they know how to make them. Thank-You.

Disappointed in sizing and cut of this shirt. Reviews prove that many ppl had the same issue. Every other review can’t be wrong.
T-shirt fit is horrible. I purchased a size small, it looks like a large. Worst cut of any Carhartt item I’ve ever bought. I can fit my leg in the arm hole. Returning to store tonight. Disappointed that it would take a 5’8” man that weighs 350 lbs and pumps weight everyday. Just a practical fit for normal human beings would be great.

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.
