Frequently Asked Questions

  • How Heavy is your heavyweight tee?

    All our t-shirts are made with the same heavyweight jersey. Although we have three body styles (classic fit; pro fit; tall fit) we use the same heavyweight jersey to construct each design and body style. It is a USA 16/1 open end 100% cotton yarn, knitted, cut and sewn locally in the USA. The finished jersey fabric is a minimum 7.5 oz. Each jersey lot is inspected and tested to maintain the highest quality standard.

  • What are some of the other details of the tees?

    All heavyweight branded t-shirts are made from 100% cotton. The neck rib is knitted with 3% Lycra added for long lasting memory. Each shirt is garment dyed and pre-shrunk to match our fit chart size specifications. Self fabric neck tape sewn inside the neck from shoulder to shoulder with double needle top-stitch on the outside. Double-needle top stitch on sleeves and bottom hems. Printed neck label added for comfort.

  • Do you ever have free shipping sales?

    We have been known to issue coupons for reduced shipping but we almost always offer free shipping on all USA orders of $100.00 or more.

  • What are your coupons and how do you get one?

    At times we create a coupon offer. If you are on our mailing list, you receive an email with the coupon code revealed there. To start receiving our email notices, just go to the bottom of any page in our online store and enter your email address to sign up. We send about one to two email messages per month. We never sell your name or spam you.

  • Your sizing chart doesn't seem to correlate between inches and stated size. I have a 50 inch chest which is normally XXL but on your sizing chart has it listed as 28 inches. I'm hoping it works out I really like your shirt selections and the fact they're true heavyweight material. I'm not a fan of today's trend for ultra-thin material. I like my shirts thick for durability and a neater appearance. Thanks in advance for your response.

    We recommend that you get one or your own t-shirts that fits you well. Lay it on a flat surface and smooth it out like the images in our fit guides. Measure across the front chest just under the arm seam as shown on our chart. Then on the back side, measure from the ribbing seam down to the hem to determine the length. Compare those results with the measurements shown on our chart to determine the best size to purchase. Please check out the video below for more specific instructions.

  • I'm looking for a size for my 14 year-old son....I think a small might work.. he measures 20" across and 20" length he usually wears boys husky XL or men's medium but they are too long on him. Please let me know if you have a size that will work, Thanks

    Our shirt styles are over-sized and pretty large. They are not usually the style of tee geared for youth. You can, however, confirm by checking out our fit guide that will help you verify.

  • Are any of your shorts Made in the USA? I love your shirts that I have but can't help but support only USA workers especially now in this time of great need.

  • I bought some of your shirts last February and really like them. But, I need a small and it doesn't seem like you have them in small sizes that correct?

    We do have size small tees but have less of a demand for them. We are starting to add in more of the smaller sizes now (summer 2012) for you to choose from. - - Update: We have added a new body style called Pro Fit that has a more narrow body to accommodate those of you seeking a high quality tee but in a more conventional fit We have them in solid colors with no print as well.

      Yes, We made Go Barefoot Tees when they were focused on the heavyweight variety. They have changed their focus to a lighter weight tee now. We still make the heavyweight tees in the weight and sizing that was previously sold by Go Barefoot.

    • Was Heavyweight formerly Old Honolulu?

      Yes, we produced the heavyweight t-shirts under the Old Honolulu label. We have now changed to Heavyweight Collections

    • I have been wearing the Go Barefoot T-shirts since I can remember, I know they have changed, are these Heavyweight t-shirts the same design as the G/B or is this an entirely different brand? I am a huge fan of the G/B and I now am in the market for a bunch of new T-shirts. Thanks

    • Can you process orders for a size XXXL

      At this time we do not produce size 3X. Since our classic tees are over sized you may be surprised to fit into a 2XL. Please check out the fit charts and compare a shirt of your own. 

    • Do you have any heavy duty white tee shirts with just the small logo on the front and nothing on the back

      No, At this time we have sold out of those designs Previously we had a couple of embroidered tees that have a small emblem on the front and nothing on the back but we have sold out of those. Be sure to check back with us though. Our standard operating procedure is that we make t-shirts that end up being collector editions and may print a limited edition of a particular design.
