The internet revolutionized many industries but none more significant than online shopping. Gone are the days when you’d beg your friend to go to the mall with you so you could get your mitts on some cool new tshirts.
It’s all clickety clack and tappity tap now, kids. (Do not question our lingo.)
There are literally thousands of websites to choose from when you wish to buy a t-shirt online. But if you keep these five things in mind you’ll become a happier shopper.
1. Size chart
Tshirts come in all shapes and sizes and that’s probably not a good thing. Unlike other items there is no global standardised sizing for tshirts. (Try saying that 5 times quickly).
So a men’s medium tshirt you buy in Taiwan can be completely different from a men’s medium in Canada. This is a known problem in online shopping. There’s no FCC setting standards for tshirt sizing. So eCommerce websites like ours have to make hard decisions on what size chart to adopt. This can depend on various factors like core market, vendor access and so on.
So you must look at the size chart tshirt brands post with their products. Do not presume that the sizes would be what you’re familiar with. Because when you presume you make a pres out of… wait how did it go again?
