when compared to AA, almost everything. they shrink a good size, to size 1/2 even with cold water washing. the amount of loose threads per shirt is high, and the length of the shirt is shorter. plus, the fabric is harsh on the skin even after multiple washings with softener, while AA is nice and soft right out of the bag.
In spite of my griping, there are shirts I dislike even more than the Anvils used here; I do take overall value into consideration, though, hence my reluctance to purchase.
I’m just glad they aren’t paper thin. I really hate the super cheap materials they are making some t-shirts out of, these days.
I stopped buying at Threadless for a while because of their use of sub-subpar shirts. Then they came to their senses …
