So much depends on body shape and fit preference. Please consult the size charts and fabric information below. There is additional product-specific fit information within each listing, and please also contact us with any questions. 

Women

Ladies Tees and Racerback Tanks

A very slim fit. We strongly recommend choosing 1-2 sizes up, depending on fit preference. Tri Blend tees have a soft, vintage style feel and drape. 50/50 tees are our most fitted tees, and also are the softest. See Fabric notes at the bottom of this page for further details. 

Products are measured using an unwashed, flat tshirt laying on a flat surface, and are measured straight across. Length is measured from the center of the neck seam straight down to the bottom of the shirt. Scroll to the bottom of the page for product care and shrinkage information. 

Measured in inches.

 Men

Men's/Unisex Tshirts

A standard men's fit. Ours are a premium tee with a slightly longer and leaner cut than an average boxy tshirt. The 100% Cotton tees are the most standard fit, and are a more structured fabric. Tri Blend tees are slightly more fitted and have a soft, vintage style feel and drape. 50/50 tees are the most fitted men's shirts, and also the softest of the three. See Fabric notes at the bottom of the page for further details.

Unisex Baseball Tees 

A slightly leaner men's fit. They are a 50/50 blend, a very soft material that clings a bit more to the body than our Cotton and Tri Blend tees. We recommend sizing up if in doubt.

Babies & Kids

Babies Onesies and Tshirts 

True to size and generally fit babies by age. 3-6 months is the smallest babies size and is considered our "newborn" size. When in doubt, always size up for babies - they grow so fast! Babies tees are more adaptable in sizing, as they are wider than the snug fitting onesies and fit for longer because there aren't length considerations.

Kids Baseball Tees and Tshirts 

True to size and generally fit by age. They are available in even sizes - 2T, 4T and 6T. We recommend sizing up when in doubt, and are always available to answer fit or sizing questions.

Kids Sweatshirts 

Available in even sizes - 2T, 4T and 6T. They are true to size and generally fit by age, but are not as generous as the kids tshirts. The only exception to this are the Kids Raglan Sweatshirts, which are a more relaxed fit and true to size. With the Zip Hoodies and California Fleece Crewnecks, we recommend sizing up to ensure fit and a longer wear.
