The Best Feel

Gildan shirts are known for their soft texture and comfort, which is why we choose Gildan as one of our top shirt options. Featuring 6 oz. of 100% preshrunk cotton, you’re getting a comfortable, breathable shirt that you can wear anywhere and anytime. The 6 oz. cotton weight is heavy enough to feel like a high-quality fabric, while being light enough to still breathe and feel comfortable.

The seamless rib at the neck provides an added layer of comfort, while tag less options eliminate the annoying itch you may find with other shirts. If 6 oz. cotton isn’t the best choice for you, we carry Gildan shirts in multiple cotton weights, including 4.5 oz. ringspun cotton.

These cotton weights allow you to have Gildan shirts for any type of weather. From hot summer days to cool autumn nights, the varying cotton weights provide the comfort and breathability that you need to stay comfortable all day long.

We know how important comfort is, and buying Gildan shirts wholesale through The Adair Group is the perfect way to provide comfort for your whole group, whether it be for your family members, a sports team or for your screen printing business.
