    I bought these to wear under my scrubs at the hospital. The results were perfect for that use, but might not be so great for others.

    I'm fairly skinny, so for me to say that these shirts run skinny is saying something. The most noticeable location of the shirt being slim-fitting is the sleeves and my forearms make me feel like the hulk every time I flex my fingers. Just to be clear, these shirts DO NOT run small, they run slim, which is a huge difference. The length of the shirt/sleeves is spot on, it's the circumference of the shirt that has felt slightly tighter.

    BUT, that same skinny/slim sizing makes these ideal as a long-sleeve undershirt, which happened to be what I bought them for.

    The price is right-on, the quality is fantastic, there's no tag inside the shirt, and the construction is surprisingly high quality. Multiple colors? Why yes, I would like to look fly at work!

    I very highly recommend this t-shirt as an undershirt for slimmer people.

    These shirts are nice and light-weight for the summer. I ordered a size large and found it a bit snug for a man who is 6'-2" and 185 pounds. The sleeves are plenty long for someone who usually wears a 35-inch sleeve. The sleeves are a snug fit, which is great for layering under a shirt, but you'll have a hard time rolling up the sleeves if you want it for a work shirt. The body of the shirt is nice and long, too. Overall, the shirt works well for keeping the sun off your arms without being too heavy.

    I would really like to give this a higher rating, but unfortunately I can't. I ordered the shirt, and it didn't take long for it to be shipped, and it arrived in good time. I opened the package, and inspected the T-Shirt. It was quality material, and was of the correct size I had ordered. The only problem I found was it was a SHORT SLEEVE. I was disappointed, as it is a nice shirt for the price. The listing clearly states a long sleeve, and the picture as well shows a long sleeve. I decided to keep it, returning it seemed more a hassle then what its worth. Hopefully they get their shipping/quality control department sorted out, shipping the wrong product is not good for business.

    The white version of this is 100% cotton (thankfully!), and is exactly what my husband wanted to wear under annoyingly translucent dress shirts (what is it with 100% Egyptian cotton shirts and sheets? Why have they become so thin in recent years?!) instead of the short-sleeved undershirts he had been wearing before. Under annoyingly translucent shirts, short sleeved undershirts show a distinct difference between the bare arm parts and the shoulders, torso and part of the arms where the sleeves are. A long-sleeve white teeshirt like this makes thin white shirts look much much better (pull the sleeves down to remove wrinkles before doing up the cuffs). I think it improves the look of all dress shirts, but white ones in particular look vastly better this way.

    At the same time as I ordered this one, I ordered a Hanes Long Sleeve Beefy-T and a Soffe Men's Men'S Long Sleeve Cotton T-Shirt. Both of those are also 100% cotton too. This Hanes Men's 4.5 oz Hanes NANO-T Long Sleeve T-Shirt is slightly thinner than those too, as expected. I think the Beefy is the heaviest, if that helps. If Hanes did a 3oz or thinner one I would order that for use as an undershirt in hot weather. The 4.5oz Nano is still a lot thicker than the Hanes short-sleeve undershirts my husband had been wearing before.

    One thing you might also want to know is that the Beefy and the Soffe have banded/sweatshirt-style sleeve cuffs, whereas the Nano has simple sleeves just hemmed without a stretchy band. If you prefer sweatshirt-style banded sleeves, choose one of the others, not the Nano. Personally I dislike the look of sweatshirt cuffs on teeshirts.

    Re size, they all seem amply sized, as expected. The Soffe Large is about the same physical size as the Nano XL (but the Nano still looks huge nevertheless!). The Beefy XL is wider, and specifically says "preshrunk" on the label. Sleeve length is about the same on all of them. The Soffe is about 0.5 inches longer. I haven't tried washing them at high temperature yet but if they shrink, I will update my review.

    I needed some long-sleeved t-shirts during the winter to fit under some short-sleeved polo shirts. These work well and change up the color scheme. The only downside is at the sleeve's cuff. On some of the shirts, the stitching is off and is noticeable at the end. Instead of the cuff being rounded off perfectly, the cuff may end as sort of a triangle. If you wear the t-shirt at work as I did, then you may not want to wear that particular t-shirt and have to ensure to wear one whose cuff is properly finished.

    As I get cold easily and am in a profession where dress attire is necessary I need lightweight long sleeve shifts for under dress clothes. These shirts are perfect. They fit close to the body, are light, and do not have bulky cuffs on the sleeves. Price is excellent, shipping is fast (not quite prime fast, but pretty darn good considering I'm on the west coast and they ship from the East coast), quality is very good and there's a nice selection of colors. I've tried a ton of different shirts and these are the best combo of price, fit, and durability.

    This shirt is perfect. I wanted a light weight, long sleeve, all cotton shirt to wear in the eastern Washington sun. It had to be long sleeve for work purposes, white, because of the sun, and light weight because of the temp. My shirts arrived on time, fit as expected, are soft and well made. I would definitely recommend these to anyone of average build and size. Way to go Haynes! Your underwear doesn't agree with me but these shirts do.

    We were looking for VERY lightweight cotton shirts to wear for sun protection and to wet and wear in desert conditions. These did the trick. They are cheap, they are thin, they are just what we were looking for. Buy big though, as they shrink A LOT after washing. I wear a women's medium and had to get men's large.

    I'm still looking for the "ideal" long-sleeved cotton t-shirt. So far, I've learned that they ALL shrink, "pre-shrunk" is a meaningless term. So, I now buy medium, even though I am a small. The cuffs are a bit tight. Stitching appears to be average.
