Prefer to NOT have your logo on my shirt pocket
I sugge3st you relocate the logo (which is way too big anyway), to the sleeve. If it weren't for the to huge logo, I'd buy more. I like the weight and thickness of the material.

Buy it.
Great T-shirt. Relaxed fit is not much different than traditional fit. Size is exactly what XL tall should be. Material is thick and dense, tightly woven. Top quality, especially for the price point.

Like the weight and sizing but the black faded after the first wash! Its now more of a charcoal color than a black. Not a big deal, maybe that’s the intended color. But again sizing and the feel of the shirt are great!

Runs small
Relaxed Fit runs smaller than both their Loose Fit & Original Fit styles. Material quality is amazing as always from Carhartt but Relaxed fit hugs the body a bit tighter than I expected

Finally found the perfect, go-to t-shirt
The perfect fit for me, after much trial and error. For reference, I purchased medium and I’m 6’2” and 190lbs. The shirt does not collect water (rain or sweat) and is perfect for all occasions. I bought every available color at the time of purchase.

The relax fit heavy weight tee shirts works great for me even underneath my heavy duty hickory stripe coveralls especially when I'm out before sun up fueling and servicing the heavy equipment on the site. It's a little chilly that early in the morning Big Rick

2 types of fit
So far nice fit...didn't realize the difference between relaxed fit and loose fit. Normally I would get the loose fit. Hope these don't shrink.
