Description

These lightweight, pure cotton T-shirts are worn as undershirts throughout the Chinese speaking world, and are also worn as summer weight shirts by older men. My father wore similar undershirts for most of his life, and I wore the sleeveless kind through primary and secondary school. These were produced by the Chinese Government's factories up until the late 90s/early 2000s, much like pu erh tea and Yixing teapots were. This is a historic brand in China and the quality is very tightly controlled.


The picture of the man in the white shirt in the first picture is a baijiu brewer in Guangxi: he wears one of these shirts at work!

These shirts are very comfortable and ideal for summer wear! They are usually worn to fit long and loose, but can be sized down for a tighter fit. I wear the largest size and have decided I like them so much, that I'm going to wear them all summer as they are lightweight and keep me much cooler than American-weight T-shirts do. 

I suggested adding these shirts as a joke a few months ago, since they are commonly worn by older men when they are drinking their tea! Well, I decided to actually offer them, as I've been asked to source them in the past. I know I'll be wearing them this summer as they keep me nice and cool!

Suggested sizing is as follows:

95          90-110 lbs bodyweight

100       110-125 lbs bodyweight

105       125-140 lbs bodyweight

110       140-160 lbs bodyweight

115       160-170 lbs bodyweight

120       170-190 lbs bodyweight

For the record, I wear the 120 size and find it has plenty of room and length, and I am 183 cm tall and over 230 lbs! 

Please note these shirts/undershirts do not shrink in the wash.
