We make basics, better. All the things you love about GOEX at a value price - USA fabric, quality construction and fair trade job support. So what’s the difference? Standard vs. premium, ring-spun cotton: the processes for creating these fabrics are totally different. Standard cotton is made from cotton fibers that are twisted together to make yarn, which is then knit into fabric. These basic tees are not as soft as our Premium collection, but great for promotional prints or the customer looking to support fair trade on a tighter budget. Now that’s a tee you can feel great wearing!
Our standard cotton tees are engineered with sustainability in mind meaning the high-quality fabric looks great wash after wash. The typical cotton tee travels up to 16,000 miles in their production journey — leaving toxic oil residue in the ocean. Our standard cotton is sourced right here in the U.S. and travels only 1,200 miles to Haiti to be sewn into shirts by skilled artisans who earn a fair wage. It’s a quality tee that’s better for our planet, better for the maker, and better for you. You can be proud knowing that having a GOEX premium cotton tee in every color makes a great impact.
