Chuck Norris’ favorite T-Shirt

Chuck Norris’ favorite t-shirt is the American Apparel TR401. This tri-blend shirt is made with 50% polyester, 25% cotton, and 25% rayon. The polyester helps retain the shape of the shirt while Chuck throws his deadly punches and roundhouse kicks. The cotton in the shirt lends to both cotton and durability (not that Chuck needs comfort, of durability). The rayon makes for a unique texture and drape against the body for a slimming look. Chuck is proud of his Total Gym body and this shirt helps him show it off a little.

Three Wolf BlueCotton Moon

Just the other day, Tom, our General Operations Manager, was seen wearing a new shirt he designed using our award winning Design Studio. Tom, of course, chose his favorite shirt, the American Apparel BB401, as the canvas for his Three Wolf BlueCotton Moon masterpiece. When asked about his new shirt, Tom simply listed the pros and cons:

Pros: Fits my slender frame; has wolves on it; my wife likes it.
Cons: Only 3 wolves; could probably use a few more on the ‘guns’; cannot see wolves when sitting with arms crossed; wolves would have been better if they glowed in the dark.

What Tom doesn’t realize is that this shirt permeates so much mystical power that Chuck Norris is scared. Adam, one of our graphic designers, is so enamored with its mystical powers that he is going to get this design tattooed on his lower back tomorrow morning.

Ask and You Shall Receive

Our wonderful customers have spoken and we listened. Our customers asked for more American Apparel offerings and in response to that feedback, we’ve added an additional five of their most popular t-shirts to our website. If you love the 2001 like we do, then check out these other options from American Apparel.

One of our favorites is the TR401. This is a tri-blend t-shirt. It is made of 50% cotton, 25% polyester, and 25% rayon. This shirt has a super soft “hand” (t-shirt lingo describing how a shirt feels) and will remind you of your old p.e. shirt.

The BB401 is our second most favorite American Apparel t-shirt. The BB401 is made from 50% cotton and 50% polyester. This T has a soft hand and a slightly slimmer fit than the 2001.


V-necks are HUGE this year. And no one does V-necks better than American Apparel. Check out the 2456.

If you looking for a place to put your pen, or some extra storage. Look at the 2406 Pocket Tee.

Ringer shirts are still very popular for sports teams. If your softball team is on the cutting edge of fashion, look at the 2410. This has a fashion forward fit that American Apparel customers love.

Wear Organics, It Feels Good.

Show your “green” side and wear an organic shirt today – after all, it is Earth Day. I wanted to show you some different brands and styles of organic shirts we carry and talk about what exactly organic cotton is and why it is important to use.

Our most popular organic shirt is the 2001 organic by American Apparel. It has a fashion forward fit you expect from American Apparel but made with super soft organic cotton.

Another company that is a player in the organic market is Anvil. Anvil has introduced numerous products to help reach their goal of conducting business that positively influences the environment. The OR420 is their 5 oz., 100% organic cotton “go-to T”.

The Right White Shirt

A t-shirt is just a t-shirt, right? Wrong. In fact there are countless differences between brands of shirts. These sometimes-subtle differences can be huge factors when trying to decide which shirt will work best for you. That’s where I can help! I took 5 different shirts that we offer and wore them for a week to test them out. The shirts I chose to include in my research were all 100% cotton basic white t-shirts.

American Apparel 2001
Alternative Apparel AA05
Hanes Beefy Tee 5180
Hanes Tagless Tee 5250
Gildan 2000

For the fashion forward readers (like myself) I would highly recommend the Alternative Apparel and the American Apparel tees. Both of these garments have a slimmer cut and a more vintage feel about them. American Apparel is produced entirely in the United States, unlike the others, but is at the higher end of the cost spectrum. The Alternative Apparel t-shirt has a more sheer quality to it and it is extremely soft and breathable. Currently the Alternative Apparel AA05 is not available on our site, but is making its debut in the coming weeks!

For the shopper on a budget, I would recommend the Gildan 2000. The 2000 is one of our top sellers due to its low price, superior fit and wide range of sizes. With over 60 colors in sizes small to 2X and select colors going up to 3XLT, the choices are limitless!

If you like a beefier tee that holds up to lots of hard wear and tear, Hanes is the brand for you. The Hanes Beefy Tee is wider cut than the other shirts, but is excellent for any athletic activities you may find yourself in. Also the Beefy 5180 tee and its Tagless 5250 counterpart come in a wide range of colors and sizes sure to fit anyone and any budget.

No matter which shirt you choose, you are bound to get a great deal and an even greater shirt, especially with BlueCotton.com on your side!
