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

It has an original fit that gives you room to move and a soft feel that only gets better with time.

The shirt fits as expected. The color was a little “browner” than expected; very similar to other light browns I already have.

I would like to see the return of the 99% cotton K87 Ash. That’s the shirt I actually want.

Thanks

The best shirts.
Heavy cotton material,feels great. Very well made, the pocket holds my Pixel 3a xl and feels secure. The color is hunter green, a nice deep color. I am very happy with them.

Exactly as advertised
I have purchased several different brands of shirt, including some of the big names. All of them claim to be true to size (I wear a 5x-long), highly durable, colorfast, comfortable, "dry-wick" performing material, etc., etc., etc.... Guess who does EXACTLY as advertised? None of them! Only Carhart has a shirt that does exactly what they say it does. Sorry, not sorry... I will not be buying any other brand in the future. Oh, and these bad boys don't shrink in the wash, even if you use hot water. Thanks, Carhart!

DES behind k87 meaning. On carhartt pocket t ?
A shopper on Feb 12, 2020
BEST ANSWER: This will be the color code for Desert.
(Comment for your sales team) HIGH VISIBILITY K87? NOT EVERYONE LIKES THE FORCE MATERIAL. THE BASIC CARHARTT CLASSIC T-SHIRT NEEDS TO COME IN HIGH VIS, AND BIG/TALL!! THIS SHOULD BE A STAPLE FOR A WORKWEAR BRAND.
I have over 30 of these High vis orange and high vis green (sour apple) and its time to replace them as they are work shirts I am looking at other brands now that you have discontinued these colors I own a few of the force shirts and hate them I only want 100% cotton. please bring them back for the past few years I bought everyone of the K87 in orange as soon as they came into my local store if I would have known they were going to be discontinued I would have ordered a bunch more online. Can you help out the working class?
ROBERT H B on Feb 5, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate your feedback and will forward your suggestion to our Product Design Team for future consideration.

What size is model wearing and how tall is he?
A shopper on Dec 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Model Height: 6'2"; Chest Size: 40.5"; Wearing size M
I wear XL on other shirts brands what do you think is my size on this kind of tee? Thanks
A shopper on Nov 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I would refer to the sizing tool for proper fit. Original fit is nice and loose without being baggy and tall is a good proportional tall size.
Are the 100% cotton shirts true to size?
A shopper on Oct 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I wear XL and some XL shirts are a little tight around my shoulders and chest (I have a large build and I'm also a bit overweight). These shirts are very comfortable on me so I guess I would say they run a tiny bit larger than most other shirts, but they are pretty true to size.
Are the 100% cotton shirts true to size?
A shopper on Oct 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I am 6’5” and I wear a regular 2XL. The 2XL Tall shirts are very long, great if you tuck your shirt in but to long if you don’t. Great shirts and true to size other than that
Why do you not offer a 100% cotton high vis shirt? Poly blends melt with sparks and flame on the jobsite.
A shopper on Oct 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The Heather colors will be cotton poly blend. All other colors will be 100% cotton.
Does this shirt stretch or cling?
A shopper on Sep 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I have purchased many of these shirts over the years. They have never stretched out or cling. Neither have they shrunk. They have always been the best pocket T's I have found. The fit is dead on. When it comes to comfortable work wear T-shirts carhartt can't be beat.
What happen to orange and sour apple? Some of us need those high visibility colors.
A shopper on Sep 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We are sorry those are discontinued colors. We suggest style 100493
Which currently available colors are 100% cotton?
A shopper on Sep 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Any colors without Heather in the name are 100% cotton.
When are you going to bring back all the solid colors? Why does Carhartt feel they have to change things all the time? I’ve worn Carhartt almost 100% for the last 15 years, but I for one I’am tired of finding a color or style of pant that I like just to find out it’s discontinued the next time I want to buy it again! I have spent thousands on your clothes in the last fifteen years, I care about function not style or trends! Maybe it’s time to find a new brand!
A shopper on Sep 1, 2019
No more high visibility K87? Not everyone likes the Force material. The basic Carhartt classic t-shirt needs to come in high vis, and big/tall!! This should be a staple for a workwear brand.
Brandi M on Aug 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your feedback. We have shared this review with our Product Design Team as a suggestion.
When/will you be making more colors available in 4XL TALL? I want more Carhartt shirts (other then just the K87 would be nice too!!), but I only fit in the original style and need a 4XL TALL.
Bennett on Aug 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The K87, K126, and K288 will all be available in 4XL Tall in Fall 2019.
Is the K87 the original work pocket t shirt?
Burt H on Aug 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this is our K87.
What is the color difference between oil green heather and olivine heather?
Ross A on Aug 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: In your online image they are the same. Take a look !
BRING BACK THE K87 100% SOUR APPLE POCKET TEE. AS NOTED BY OTHERS, WE HAVE ALSO USED THESE SHIRTS FOR SEVERAL YEARS AS COMPANY SHIRTS. NOW WE ARE FORCED TO LOOK ELSEWHERE? WE NEED SAFETY COLORS FOR THESE SHIRTS
A shopper on Aug 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We do not plan to bring that color back in the near future, but we appreciate your suggestion. We recommend you also submit your idea formally through our Ideas that Work online portal: https://www.carhartt.com//content/ideas-that-work
BRING BACK the K87 100% BRIGHT ORANGE pocket tee. We have used these shirts for several years as company shirts. Now we are forced to look elsewhere for the 100% BRIGHT ORANGE shirts. Can you please bring these back?
