    I need 6 towncraft 50/50 vee neck size 2XL tee shirts badly. These are the only tees I like.

    • hey cecil – they [the towncraft 50/50] don’t exist anymore. closest comparables are the bdg tees from urban outfitters, canvas distressed 3402, or retro fit from ribbed tee – but they don’t offer a 2xl size.

      the vintage towncraft 50/50 are totally fab – i agree.

    I have been trying to find the manufacturer or factory that produces the Body Glove mens 100% cotton tee shirt. I need about 50 of them without the Body Glove label (stamp) on them Thanks!

    I have been looking for these shirts to. I was at Pennys today when I found out they are no longer made. I’m wearing one right now. I hope the ones I got last a few more years cause every other under shirt does suck.

  5. Hi Marie – thanks for your comments. As you well may know, Penny’s replaced the original Towncraft undershirts with Stafford some time ago and most folks I’ve run into prefer the Towncraft over the new Stafford. I just wish I could find the original manufacturers (the factory) of Towncraft and ask them to make some more.

    The only store I have ever seen towncraft undershirts in is JC Penny’s. I have been buying them there for years for all the men in my house.

  7. hey m w! i’ve been keeping my eyes out for the original towncraft undershirts, but to no avail. But you can be rest assured that I’ll keep checking. If I find anything, I’ll be sure to let you know.
