Other Things to Consider
Beyond these two options, selections can be broken down even further with garment weights.
Garment weights are usually reflected by their durability. The heavier the garment the more durable, while the lighter the softer. Keep in mind that because ringspun cotton shirts are manufactured to be more durable and lighter than regular cotton shirts, a lighter 4.3 oz ringspun cotton shirt will usually be more durable than a heavier 6 oz cotton shirt.
When it's all said and done, your garment choice really comes down to some basic factors:
· Who’s your audience
· What’s your budget
· Personal preference
