Review: "Shirts That Go" Transportation T-Shirts

When my first son was born, I loved to dress him and my husband in coordinating shirts. When his little brother was born, I switched to dressing the two boys in identical shirts. Now that my oldest is six, I think I am nearing the time when he will outgrow the stage where dressing exactly like his little brother is cool. For this reason, going forward I will be looking for big brother/little brother shirts that are similar or from the same collection just like these transportation t-shirts from Shirts That Go.



There are not too many online boutiques geared towards boys. That is why I was excited to find this one. With a transportation theme, I knew my two boys would be thrilled to wear these shirts since they are mesmerized by any type of vehicle. Of course there is no reason why girls would not flip over these shirts as well. In fact, I think Shirts That Go should design a pink sportscar or a pink motorcycle especially for girls.

I let my boys choose which shirts they liked the best. My 3yr old opted for the Jet Airplane T-Shirt and my 6yr old chose the Electric Train T-Shirt.


The shirts come in a transportation-themed shipping box that is perfect when sending gifts directly to the recipient. I have to say that I am extremely impressed by the artwork on these shirts, which are printed directly on the shirts with eco-friendly inks. The shirts themselves are 100% ring spun cotton and are extremely soft. Ours have been washed and dried twice by machine and they still look good as new. The designs did not fade. There was no pilling or misshaping of the fabric. There was minimal shrinkage (if any at all). I did find that the fabric does wrinkle very easily though, even when they are on the body.


These shirts are available in toddler size 2 all the way up to a boys size 12. My preschooler usually wears a size 3 and he is wearing a size 4 shirt. My kindergartner, who usually wears a size 6 is wearing a size 8 shirt. I definitely agree with Shirts To Go's recommendation to go up one size when ordering.


All of the tees at ShirtsThatGo.com are made in the USA by American Apparel. This site currently offers Free Shipping via USPS with no minimum purchase requirements and extends a discount when you purchase 2 or more shirts . . .

Buy 2 Shirts: Save 10%
Buy 3 Shirts: Save 15%
Buy 4+ Shirts: Save 20%

I know we wouldn't have a problem buying 2 or 4 shirts. I have a feeling my two boys will want to collect them all.


Thank you to Shirts That Go for sending us two sample shirts free of charge to base this review upon.
