The quality looks lovely







The quality of the ELMC is really good - the fabric is lovely, very heavy. I sent the one I had to Ishmael thinking it appropriate given his involvement with (his son’s) baseball

I can't get a straight answer on the Velva Sheen plain 2 pack t shirt sizing.

I wear a L in Hanes undershirts from target. I am a L in the mister freedom t shirt offerings. 
I hot wash and dry in the dryer my t shirts.
Do I need to size up and get XL or is L what I need.  Does it depend on the run and year it was made?Thanks in advance.

My only experience is with the Denimbruin shirt from a few years back. It definitely was on the small side & not very stretchy & hence pretty unforgiving. I'd go up a size if I were you.

I own multiple Velva 2 pack tees and to be honest all though they're all medium they all fit slightly different. Not like a whole size different but there is definitely discrepancies. For example my navy 2 pack pocket tees both fit a little differently with one being a bit more snug throughout the chest. The most notably different tee is is the heather grey but I think that might be because of some polyester in the tee and less shrinkage. I think the main issue with why people suggest sizing up with Velva is the higher and snug arm holes. Apart from that I feel like the tees feel like a typical western medium but I don't machine dry my tees. Definitely snug under the pits. For reference I'm 175cm/ 5'9 and currently weigh around 177ish/80kgs. Hope that's helpful.

I’ve bought several 2 packs from Velva Sheen, and fit does very from pack to pack, not a lot, you just notice this collar is wider, this pack a touch longer. Size wise though I’ve always had mediums fit me fine. I’d say there on the small size for a medium. Call it half size.
The heathered shirts seem to hold the best shape.

Thanks everybody. I ordered an xl but got a refund because they did not have them in stock. Sounds like I should find a place that has them and try them on once we get back to something a bit more normal.
