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.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by luckyduck Mmm... cozy
I first noticed that the color is more black than smoke gray and on the larger shirts the neck was a little more snug than desired.
However, the sizes are true-to-fit and the best part is that the cotton is nice and soft, not stiff. The material isn't that thin cotton that marketing people like to label "tissue cotton." Everyone agreed these shirts were very comfortable and quite cozy and NOT flimsy.
If you want a dark grey shirt, I wouldn't recommend this color choice but in all other respects this is the perfect cotton shirt.
