THE ATLANTIC SURF T-SHIRT GUIDE

FABRIC

The Atlantic Surf tees are manufactured using 100% Fine Supima cotton. Not to be confused with the retail term, "pima cotton", which is used more-so as a generic term for a "better" cotton. Supima® is American-grown, long-staple cotton and is one of the world's finest cotton fabrics. It is known for its soft texture and light feel when worn.

SLIM FIT

The Atlantic Surf tees are slim-fit, meaning the chest and back measurements are a bit smaller, leading to a more tapered look from the underarms to the waste. Slim-fit tees are pretty common among today's t-shirts (you might be surprised at how many you already own). When purchasing, expect our tees to fit true-to-size. Said another way, if you've always been a Medium-fit tee, order a Medium.

SIZING (UP)

For us, nothing influences the mood of a t-shirt more than the fit. Though The Atlantic Surf shirts do fit true-to-size, one favorite feature of our tees is that sizing-up fits well if the wearer is looking for a more relaxed look. After a full wash-and-dry cycle, the slim-fit keeps the shirt from looking like a bedsheet, but still achieves the laid-back beach look you might be searching for. When sizing-up, expect the tee to fall a bit wider off of the shoulder blades and fit a bit looser through the neck and waist.
