by ellbee1 great shirts
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 5 out of 5 by Hollywood Best t-shirts on the market!!
JCP Stafford t-shirts have always been a great product. I have tried others over the year and they pale in comparison, in every way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jayray26 A nice thick shirt..
I love that this shirt is still very thick and is the same quality that it has been for years. I only buy Stafford undershirts.

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 1 out of 5 by Korunner Do not recommend
I used to love these t shirts. I've worn them under a uniform for almost 25 years but after the last batch I'll never use them again. My wife bought me a 4 pack in December and I started using them in mid January. Within the first month I had one split the seam where the collar attaches to the neck. Then just about six weeks later I had another one split in the same area. I only wear them about once every other week so this should not have happened. I would NOT recommend these and will have to find another brand.
