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.

I wear XL on other shirts brands what do you think is my size on this kind of tee? Thanks

Are the 100% cotton shirts true to size?
A shopper on Oct 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes
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.

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.

BEST ANSWER: The K87, K126, and K288 will all be available in 4XL Tall in Fall 2019.

Burt H on Aug 11, 2019
