After being very happy with JCP 50/50 crew neck shirts purchased some months ago, I decided to give the heavy weight crew neck shirts a try.
I got home, put one on and the tightness of the neckband totally surprised me.It seemed ridiculously tight. I almost pulled it off to return it but thought,oh leave it on for a while.A lot of people on the JCP review seem to love them. So I put my shirt on over it. The white neckband was prominent and feeling the collar encircling my neck I decided to wear it long enough to see if I could get used to it. I got used to the snugness, and decided the white neck band looks good too. I always have liked wearing a crew neck undershirt and it's kind of my style.
The shirts look clean, never sag and the overall close fit in the torso with the heavy fabric absorbs perspiration and keeps me cool under whatever shirt I put on over it.
I also wear the 50/50 crew neck shirts as an alternate if the neckband on the heavyweight looks too prominent under some shirts. They look and feel really nice too and don't look so serious.

by JPolk99 I only buy my T-shirts from JC Penny's
In my opinion, these are some of the best t-shirts on the market, especially for the value. They will last a long time with little maintenance. I haven't purchased any other t-shirts since 2008.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gallagher117 Outstanding Quality! Never Buy Any Brand!
I had been buying "Stafford® Performance T-Shirt's" for myself for over 2 years now. They are far superior in comfort and never lose their shape or discolor.
I have been trying to convert my husband from Hanes but he will not budge. I end up replacing his t-shirts every 3-4 months due to losing shape, yellowing, armpit stains. While this does make laundry easier to separate, it just wastes so much money.
I agree that Stafford® Performance T-Shirt's may cost a lit bit more than the bargain brands found at supermarkets or low end department stores, but think about quality rather than cost.
When you purchase a set of Stafford T-Shirt's these will last you 2, 3, 4 years or longer in many cases. They will never lose shape, and with proper care they will not discolor. When you purchase a discount brand that you grew up on you should expect to keep replacing them every 3-4 months. Those brands will stretch out, stain easily, turn yellowish, and don't forget the sweat stains.
BONUS: The discount brands do make great cleaning rags.

Rated 2 out of 5 by AW203 Quality declining
I have bought these t-shirts (Stafford, Heavyweight) for 20 years, and I agree with several of the other reviewers that the quality of this product has declined to the point that I will not purchase again.
Several others have commented that the t-shirts are not has thick as they once were. That may be true, but they are still thicker than most t-shirts out there. My disappointment is in the quality of the collar. After one wear, the collar on 2 of the 8 t-shirts I purchased stretched out to the point they looked goofy. I didn't abuse these shirts in any way... I put them on and took them off one time.
I am willing to pay more for a high quality t-shirt, but I have been happy with these in the past. However, I will no longer buy these shirts and would be grateful for any recommendations on t-shirts out there that reassemble what these t-shirts once were. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Velandra Great undershirt
I bought some of these in the store with my husband and then I ordered more online. I bought the exact same product and item number, but the shirts I got online were actually of better quality than the shirts I got in the store. They are thicker and the collar is larger than the other shirts. I am not quite sure why they are different or what, but the shirts I ordered online are much nicer and I would recommend them. My husband wears these under his work shirts and he is very happy with them. They are much thicker than the other shirts we used to buy by Hanes or Fruit of the Loom. They hold up much better. By now, those other cheaper brands would have holes in the armpits. But these, I think these are a keeper! And I got them on sale and with a coupon and spend probably 2 or 3 more dollars more per shirt than the cheaper brands. It is well worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chinacat1000 These are the best undershirts, hands down
I've worn my share of undershirts from all the usual suspects (there really aren't that many manufacturers). I've been wearing these Stafford undershirts for years. I bought 8 of these around 2006 and I wore them solid for the last 7 years. I just picked up 8 news ones and they are just as nice. They withstand a bleach cycle once every two wearings, and the necks have withstood stretching by some type of modern engineering miracle. They are superlong in any of the Tall sizes, which is great for keeping everything tucked in and looking nice. One very important observation, these things are SUPER HEAVYWEIGHT, meaning that they can get warm during the summertime. I've never tried the Stafford medium weights, but that is an option for hot weather. I have never owned any articles of clothing that I can vouch for as sincerely as these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Flipflopmom My husbands favorite undershirt
We've been buying these premium quality heavyweight undershirts for the last 20 years. Great quality and thicker than all other brands. My husband wanted to try some less expensive brands recently and he decided these are the best available. I am disappointed that our local stores never has size 2XL in stock, for some reason they can only be purchased on-line this has been for the last year. I've learned to just wait for them to go on sale and buy a few packs at a time. Stafford is a great brand overall: undershirts, dress pants, suit jackets, and dress shirts. Very reliable and great quality. Now my young adult son loves their products as much as his dad.
