Frequently Asked Questions:
How should I expect a RibbedTee Undershirt to fit me?
RibbedTee men's undershirts offer a close, comfortable fit. Our entire line is designed with stretch fabrics, so they will comfortably fit a wide variety of body shapes and sizes. You will find them to fit close, but not too tight.
Most of our undershirts fit close to the body after laundering, will relax out slightly during daily wear, then wash back down to size after each washing.
Will RibbedTee Undershirts shrink after washing?
Our Retro Fit, CrossOver and Genesis lines of undershirts and tank tops are designed to wash down (shrink) to their intended size. As such, they may fit slightly loose or big right out of their package. Just wash and dry them on warm as you would anything else. You'll find that these non pre-washed undershirts will shrink approximatly 5% - 7% with the first washing.
Our MicroModal Undershirts, MicroModal Tank Tops, CoolWear Supima Undershirts, and Classic Fit Undershirts are pre-washed/pre-shrunk for your convenience. There should be no notable shrinkage on these items.
Are RibbedTee Undershirts made for tall people? Are they longer than other undershirts?
You will find our undershirts are cut longer than many other standard undershirts, however, they still may not be long enough for someone who is very tall (over 6'4"). Of course, this primarily depends on the length of the individual wearer's torso, and not necessarily height. We do have a return policy, so if you find that our undershirts are not long enough, you may return them for a refund within 30 days of purchase.
Our post-laundered overall length measurements are provided on the Sizing Chart tab of each product page in our online store.
How do you measure the length of RibbedTee Undershirts?
The length of our shirts is measured, laying flat, from HPS (high point shoulder) to the bottom of the undershirt. The HPS is located where the collar comes in contact with the shoulder seam.
What is your longest undershirt?
While our CoolWear Supima, Classic Fit and MicroModal undershirt share the same pattern design (measurements), our MicroModal undershirts will be slightly longer post washing/drying as they are made with a finer ribbed knit design and have a tendency to shrink slightly less.
How should I care for my RibbedTee Undershirts?
We recommend washing the undershirts in warm water and tumble dry on a normal/low heat. Please refer to the recommended care instructions provided on each garment's label for additional information.
Recommended usage of chlorine & non-chlorine bleaches: RibbedTee care labels are imprinted with recommendation of "do not bleach" as bleach is not generally needed for the regular care of the garment. In addition, some bleaches can react with perspiration or antiperspirant stain deposits and may result in turning any present underarm stains darker. However, using small amounts of chlorine or non-chlorine bleaches in the wash will not harm or damage the garment.
Do you recommend any pre-treatment before washing?
Under normal circumstances you should not need to pre-treat your undershirts before washing them. However, to minimize the amount of staining that may be caused by the combination of underarm perspiration, deodorants, and antiperspirants, you may pre-treat your undershirt by soaking it in cold water prior to washing. This technique may be used on other undershirts as well to minimize the appearance of the yellow stains that may appear.

Are RibbedTee Undershirts tagless?
Yes, all our current products have tagless care labels. Some items may include a small size label within the side seam.
Do your tagless labels contain latex?
No, our tagless labeles do NOT contain any latex. The ink used in our transfer labels is known as "non-phthalate" ink. This type of ink is mandated by Congress for children's wear, however we use it for our labels garment labels because we know that it will go next to the skin.
