Futurenaut Tees' Guide for Short Sleeve Unisex Crew Neck Tees

Basic (Ring-Spun Cotton)
(100% ring-spun cotton, eurofit)

Models wearing basic crew neck tees

Your basic "staple" crew neck unisex tee in style, but the material isn't so basic. It is cotton, so it's already soft, absorbent, and hypoallergenic, but this is also 100% ring-spun cotton, which is smoother, softer, and stronger than regular cotton. Officially this is considered "eurofit", which is almost the same as classic fit, just with more form-fitting sleeves.

  • 100% ring-spun cotton
  • Short sleeve, crew neck, eurofit tee
  • Fabric weight: 4.5 ounces per square yard
  • Pre-shrunk for extra durability
  • High stitch density for smoother surface
  • Shoulder-to-shoulder taping
  • Rolled forward shoulder
  • Seamless double-needle 3/4" collar
  • Double-needle sleeve and bottom hems
  • Quarter-turned to avoid crease down the center

You could say it is cotton perfected.

  • Short sleeve, crew neck, fashion/slim fit tee
  • Fabric weight: 4.2 ounces per square yard

The heather blend elevates this a step beyond premium cotton. The result of blending a touch of polyester into the premium cotton, this not only creates a nice textured look, but the polyester addition also causes the material to be slightly stronger than cotton alone, less prone to wrinkles, yet still just as soft, breathable, and comfortable as premium cotton.

  • Black: 90% premium cotton, 10% polyester
  • All other Colors: 52% premium cotton, 48% polyester
  • Short sleeve, crew neck, fashion/slim fit tee
  • Fabric weight: 4.2 ounces per square yard
  • Pre-shrunk for extra durability

Luxury (Tri-Blend Poly-Rayon-Cotton)
(Poly-Rayon-Cotton Tri-Blend, modern retail fit / form-fitting)

Models wearing luxury tri-blend crew neck tees

The only thing wrong with this tee is that you'll never want to take it off. Tri-blend is the result of blending together premium cotton, polyester, and rayon, which creates the most perfect shirt material on Earth. The comfort of cotton, the durability of polyester, and the luxurious silkiness of rayon. It doesn't wrinkle easily, it dries fast, and it makes for the softest, most cozy, and longest lasting tees you can find.

  • 50% polyester, 25% premium cotton, 25% rayon
  • Extra Light fabric (3.8 ounces per square yard)
  • Short sleeve, crew neck, contemporary fit tee
  • Pre-shrunk for extra durability
  • Side-seamed
  • Ribbed knit collar with seam
  • Shoulder-to-shoulder taping

*This shirt has a slightly form-fitting modern fit, so order one size larger than normal if you prefer a looser fit.


*NOTE: Prints on tri-blend material don't come out AS opaque as on other materials because of the nature of the blend and the tendency for the texture to show through the print slightly. This does NOT mean the print will fade faster than the other materials - quite the opposite in fact. It just means it will start out with just a little bit of that "vintage" look to it.
