Sky Blue? Sea Spray? Birch? Lilac? Only marketing snobs understand marketing colors, and my wife has to have each one. What happened to simple green? Oh yeah, it all went to the marketing snobs’ products!
@Kyeh I don’t like, for example, the ringspun t-shirts. The fabric wears too thin, too quickly, and if always feels thin, plus, it’s too soft. I LIKE the feeling of clothing on me. lol
Just my preference.
@Kyeh@Tadlem43 You’ve never had a 6oz ringspun shirt, like the old Fruit of the Loom Loftees, or a Port & Co PC150. They wear like iron, but they’re amazingly sweaty in hot weather because the knit is very dense. (I sell T-shirts, and there’s a happy medium between the extremes; the Anvil 780 and 880 are pretty good choices.)
@Kyeh@werehatrack Yes, I have. Well, not the Port & Co. I’m not familiar with it.
I used to do screen printing and promo items. I just don’t care for it, but that’s just me. I certainly would offer ringspun to my customers.
I usually use/wear Anvil, Alstyle, or Gildan. Alstyle is my fav.
@Kyeh@werehatrack Yes, but you can still buy alstyle shirts…or you could a few months ago. I bought a case of mixed colors.
I hope they don’t merge the manufacturing. I think alstyle is a better made shirt. They’re great for screen printing and sublimation. I’ve never had one bleed or bleed through, and I live their double stitching.
I kinda miss doing that sometimes, but not enough to get back into it. lol
@Kyeh@Tadlem43 I very much doubt that Alstyle’s manufacturing is entirely separate, or contains all of the styles that it once did. Look at what Gildan did to Anvil; most of their product line simply evaporated. And with competition reduced, Gildan’s responsiveness and reliability went to shit as well. Even before the plague, TSC Apparel had seen so many core Gildan styles and colors go into backorder status across sizes below 2X that they had to abandon their in-stock guarantee. Now, of course, it’s even worse. I recently had to source some Heritage Cotton just to have 2X in black at all. Back in November, some base size/color combos (like black, navy, and red in L/XL/2X) just could not be had at times. And after S&S ate TSC, I don’t even have a warehouse closer than Dallas. Fourth largest city in the nation, and we can’t get T-shirts same-day.
@lisagd@rpstrong@sassymango I hate huge bath sheets! just a nice medium-size towel is fine with me. easier to handle, wipe off droplets of water. smaller to wash and dry. of course I swap into my normal work attire quickly which is sweat pants or shorts and tee-shirt (long or-short sleeved depending on season). Now on the other hand if I would want to use it as a makeshift robe, then yes, a bath sheet might be good.
@Kyeh Agreed, I’ve never understood the purpose except it’s less towel where they have to put the fluffy stuff. And if they have to use it, why not put it out at the end?
I go out of my way to buy towels without those.
@txlseries5 It’s like the days when the endangered Naugas were hunted to extinction to make Naugahyde for cheap fake leather furniture. And to the end, cheap bargain furniture stores continued to sell the stuff.
@txlseries5 Microfiber constantly sheds little plastic, um, microfibers! It gets into everything through the water table, is not filtered out by muni water systems, consolidates in the waterways and oceans, concentrates in fish and aquatic life, and you probably just had some for dinner.
Received the towels the other day and they are about as thin and threadbare as any towels I have ever seen. They are for our camp and not home, but I will stay clear of this brand going forward. Got what I paid for, I suppose.
I should have listened to Jonas4321! These are the worst towels I’ve ever owned. Thin & lightweight. A complete waste of money. That Meh would allow something this pathetic to go out under their name was the final straw for me. I’ll be closing my account and halting further notifications. I no longer trust the quality of the products they ship.
