NOTE: If measurements seem wrong, they may be of the item laid flat. For instance, a waist measurement may NOT be the distance all around your waist - it could be kind of just across the front of your waist. Some manufacturers give measurements for taut fabric (longer numbers) and some give them for slack or relaxed (shorter numbers).
- Comfort Colors 5500Review by keylime
I'm a big fan of the 1717 and 4017. The flagship, the 1717 is a truly awesome super heavy t-shirt (although I wish they would do more direct dye colors since the pigment ones seem sort of late 1990s to me); the 4017 is a similarly awesome and is very light but not too light; it doesn't come in very many colors at all.
The 5500 is the mid-weight version. It resembles the 6.1 oz 1717 more than the 4017. All three of them are cut basically the same; they are not cut like modern close-fitting t shirts, but more traditionally and are generous without being baggy (although the 5500 actually feels a little bit more fitted than the other two). The 5500 is good and is all-cotton, but the material feels a bit less loosely woven; a tight, dense cloth weave is especially noticeable on the 1717 and is what makes it awesome (and also warm and heavy). The 5500 is much more stretchy and has more give to it and breathes a little bit better, while feeling a little more thick than I expected. The 5500 comes in a ton of colors-- not quite as many as the 1717, but close, and a lot more than the 4017 comes in.
It's a good t shirt, and if you are looking for a nice mid-weight shirt available in lots of colors you would be hard-pressed to do better. (Posted on 9/11/2015)
