Glossary of terms

Classic fit: The body of a Classic fit t shirt is a one piece fabric tube that provides a straight comfortable fit.

Semi-fittedThe body of a Semi-fitted t shirt is a one piece fabric tube that provides a slightly tapered look and closer fit than the Classic fit.

Fitted: The body of a fitted t shirt is two pieces of fabric sown together to create an even more tapered look and tighter fit.

Rolled forward shoulder: A rolled forward shoulder moves the shoulder seams slightly forward to more closely fit the human body. The Semi-fitted t shirt uses them to offset its closer fit.

Crew Neck: A Crew Neck is a round, close-fitting neckline. This is the most common type of neckline used in t-shirts and sweatshirts.

Double-Needle Stitching: Double-Needle Stitching means two rows of stitching instead of one. This adds durability to the seams and gives a more polished look.

Jersey Knit: A Jersey Knit is a single knit fabric that’s elastic and drapes well. It's typically made of 100% cotton, or a poly cotton blend. Jersey knit fabric is soft and flexible and is the best choice for comfortable clothes.

Pre-shrunk: Pre-shrunk means the fabric is washed and dried prior to being cut. This minimizes fabric shrinkage after it's cut and sewn.

Quarter-turned: The body of a Classic fit t shirt is a fabric tube. Quarter-turned means the tube is turned one-quarter before it's cut to cancel out the natural fabric twist. This prevents a Classic fit t shirt from hanging funny.

Seamless collar: A Seamless collar is knit as one piece and doesn't have a joining seam.

Taped neck and shoulders: Taped neck and shoulders means a thin fabric is sewn over the neck and shoulder seams. This covers the seams like tape to provide a soft feel and a clean look.
