Durable and comfortable; great for work or just every day
These t-shirts are simply the best available if you need a t-shirt for work or even just for home. They aren't frou-frou, trendy, high-tech, second-skin-fitting shirts. They're rugged, old-style, comfortable t-shirts. They are a heavy fabric that stands up to a 7/day/week outdoor work schedule and all the washing and drying that goes with it. While they do tighten up just a little after the initial washing/drying, they don't make you wish you'd bought the next size up, so no worries there.
Now, admittedly, you could use some of my t-shirts for an emergency sail for your boat. I usually wear a 2x, sometimes even 3x, in t-shirts. With these I wear an XL-tall, so they do run large. (Just for reference, I am 6' 3'' 260lbs.) I also have the K195 shirts in XL-reg and they fit significantly smaller. I love the tall sizes so I'm not constantly and annoyingly having to tuck my shirt back in.
I have 5 of these and plan to have 10 on hand at any given time. I don't think you can beat em.
TL;DR---If you like thick, lasting, old-style t-shirts in just the size you need, BUY ONE. You won't be disappointed.
