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.

The ONLY TSHIRT!
This is the only shirt I wear unless it's a dress up day. I have been wearing these for 3 years now (nor the same ones!) The best material and fit I have ever had. AND Sam Elliot wears them on "The Ranch" how cool is that! If you're reading this to decide, DO IT you won't regret it. Any other T I have worn are XLs these are L and fit great.

Favorite T-shirt’s ever. I wear mine almost daily and they last. They are cool in the summer and comfortable in the winter when layered with a hoodie. Will definitely be buying again and suggest to anyone.

Excellent
Excellent thick shirt with pocket. My nephew bought me one and I loved it so much I ordered myself another. I am really loving this brand. I ordered a tall version which is a perfect cut for me. It is in the thick side which is perfect for work!

Somewhat disappointed
I originally purchased 2 shirts to check shrinkage & fit, and I was very satisfied. These were made is Mexico. Then I ordered 5 more identical shirts, but they were made in Guatemala, and they are definitely a snugger fit, about 2 - 3 inches smaller through chest and waist. I probably won't purchase again.

Disappointed
I love the look, feel, and fit of these shirts. I’ve bought about fifteen of them in the last year alone for work. But I didn’t buy so many just because I like them. Unfortunately these shirts haven’t held up very well at all for me. I’m a mechanic so I do get stains and tears, but that’s not the biggest issue. These shirts lose their color within four or five washes. I have several navy blue and black shirts that have faded so much you can’t distinguish between them. I’ve had to get rid of them because they are too ragged even for a work shirt. I’m disappointed and wish these held up better because otherwise they are great.

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.

How much do the cotton shirts shrink?
A shopper on Apr 10, 2019
