Rated 5 out of 5Â by Felipe Perfect fit and sleeve length!
Before I say anything else, I want to say why I was looking for plain t-shirts in the first place. I absolutely hate this new fad in skin-tight, short-short sleeve, elastic, cheap t-shirts that seems to dictate the kinds of t-shirts that you find everywhere. Mainly, I wanted something with a comfortable sleeve length. Additionally, that Hanes has the style I desire in %100 cotton is too good of an offer to pass up. I think I bought like 10 of these, plan to buy more, and will never buy them anywhere else, so long as they don't change. These are now my favorite t-shirts.
I would like to add here, that I initially bought some Beefy T's but that I found their sleeves way too wide. Don't look into those unless you're way above average weight/arm size.
I usually wear a M, and wear a M in these t-shirts. I'm 5'6" and 140 pounds. The M fits me roomily around the body and sleeves, as I prefer for moving comfortably in my shirt. The sleeve has a length around 2-3 inches short of my elbow, which I love, and in terms of width/tightness, it is 2-3 inches from being skin-tight around my average, not skinny arms. That is, the way t-shirt sleeves usually crease and hang/flap around your arm. The t-shirt itself reaches around 4-6 inches below my waist.
I had initially purchased a S, and it was too tight, both around the sleeves and around the body, although it was closer to waist length, but too short. I recommend trying two sizes, as I did, before purchasing more t-shirts. There is currently a deal for 2 t-shirts; I recommend buying two different sizes.
For some reason, the size of Ms, and other sizes, seems to vary slightly depending upon where they were made. This shouldn't be a problem, and there's nothing you can do about it, unless it's color-specific, but you would have to be buying a lot of these to ever figure that out. Also, this variation is most notable in the t-shirt length, and it's usually shorter, which might be good, in some cases. It's nothing that should keep you from buying these, in my opinion.
I have taken to washing my clothes properly, so I have no complaints about shrinking or whatever after washing. I wash everything cold and don't dry anything. If you do that, as I would recommend, you won't have any problems, naturally.
Lastly, I believe, I will preach about ditching anti-perspirants, or deodorants with aluminum. This is what would cause your t-shirts to stain at the underarms, and more importantly, I think some more natural alternatives might be better to use. I've changed to Crystal deodorant recently, and I'm happy.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Dolphinsblu Really soft and comfortable
It's runs a little small once washed, but I already knew that so I ordered one size up to make sure it fit right. I love the shirt being tagless and it's really soft and comfortable. The only thing I don't like about the shirt is the arms, they feel like they are too far back and when I lift my arms it pulls the entire shirt in an odd way. I'd still buy more, but the arm holes would be a great fix.
