Frequently Asked Questions:


Q: What is the difference between Gildan 2000 vs. 5000?

A: The fabric is only one main difference between these two styles. 2000 is constructed with 6oz 100% 18 singles cotton giving it a heavier, more durable feel. Gildan 5000 features a 5.3oz 100% 20 singles preshrunk cotton making this garment slightly lighter weight and softer than 2000.


Q: What are singles in cotton shirts?

A: “Single” refers to the thickness of the yarn used in the t-shirt fabric and is determined by how many times the cotton fiber has been twisted. The higher the number, the finer the thread will be. The finer the thread, the softer the fabric. A lower singles count will also lead to a heavier weighted garment and a higher singles count will typically be found in lighter weighted garments.
