Side seams and tubular are two very different production techniques with notable differences in quality. Keep reading to see how Kustom Kit goes the extra mile to provide superior T-Shirts. 

Side seams

Kustom Kit has built its reputation on superior quality so it will be no surprise to hear that our new Fashion Fit T-Shirts are made with side seams, just like the high-end ones found in retail stores.

Why do we spend the extra time and money on side seams?

Side seams allows the body of the Tee to stay in its classic shape, without any twisting. Partner this with the fashion fit and Superwash 60 and you can be sure that wear after wear, these Tee’s will continue to look as good as they did on day 1.



The alternative is a tubular body. The continuously woven tube means that the torso has no side seams. The result of this cheaper production method is twisting which gives a poorer wearer experience and durability. In addition, the garment will not have any shape to it – a feature that is needed in both male and female styles.
