Are RibbedTee Underwear, Undershirts & T-Shirts Made in USA?
Yes, all our underwear, undershirts, and t-shirts are Made in USA. All of production is done in Los Angeles, CA through partnerships with local knitting mills, cutting services, and sewing contractors. Many of our partners are boutique, family-run businesses.
Are your fabrics sourced from the USA?
You'll be happy to know that all of our fabrics are knitted in Los Angeles, California. Also, we do not source pre-made fabrics from resellers.
We work with local knitting mills & fabric finishers where we maintain our very own fabric specification, and have our fabric knitted at our request, several times per year.
What size underwear should I purchase?
For sizing, please refer to the Sizing Chart tab on the Product page.
There you will find a recommended sizing based on your waist size, as well as an estimated laying flat waist-width measurement.
For a more accurate estimation of fit, we would recommend measuring the waistband width (side-to-side) of any existing well-fitting underwear you currently own, laying flat.
Find the closet measurement in our "Approx. waist width" row of our Sizing Chart and order the corresponding size.
Size up for a more relaxed fit, and down for a closer fit.
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.
Please see our Sizing, Fits, & Fabrics page for additional information.
Will RibbedTee Undershirts shrink after washing?
Our Retro Fit line of undershirts is 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.
All of our other items are pre-washed/pre-shrunk for your convenience. There should be no notable shrinkage on these items.
Does RibbedTee offer tall undershirts? Are they longer than other undershirts?
You will find our undershirts are cut longer than many other standard undershirts. In some cases our undershirts are as long as other brand's tall undershirts.
For example, many of our medium sized undershirts have a body length of 29" long, laying flat. That length is equivalent to many other medium tall undershirts.
Although our undershirts are longer, 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'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?
All of our undershirts are approximately the same length post laundering & drying.
Our EVO TENCEL Undershirt is designed with 4-way stretch, and as such can be elongated more than our other undershirts.
Does RibbedTee offer tight neck t-shirts or tight neck undershirts?
The undershirt line that has the closest collar fit is our Retro Fit Crew Neck undershirts, however, they still may not be tight enough if you are in search of an undershirt with both a tight and high neck.
As it pertains to a tight neck t-shirt, we do have a product in the development stage. Please visit our ActiveBand page to learn more and put your name on our waitlist.
How should I care for my RibbedTee apparel?
Please refer to the recommended care instructions provided on each garment's TagFree label.
Please see the Our Fabrics section of our Sizing, Fits, & Fabrics page 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.
To learn more about the causes of underarm stains and ways in which to remove them, check out this very detailed article about how to remove deodorant stains at home.
Are RibbedTee apparel products tagless?
Yes, all our current products have TagFree 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.
