If your only connection to the International Brotherhood of Teamsters is falling asleep during the first 90 minutes of The Irishman, think again. The Teamsters are one of the largest labor unions in the United States and their 1.4 million members include not only truck drivers but also construction workers, farm workers, public defenders, zoo keepers, bakers, airline pilots, and, in our case, garment workers that made the t-shirt you see above.
It's heavyweight with a dense tubeknit construction, the cut is a bit boxy but fits slim when sized down, the details are sparse (save for a woven label with the Teamster crest), and the construction is as solid as what you'd expect from that moniker. If I had found this tee during my Great White T-Shirt Review, it would've taken home the value pick hands down.
Made in USA from American grown cotton.
This item will shrink on first wash, please compare for proper sizing.

Cotton knit t-shirts and sweatshirts require generic laundering with a good quality detergent and fabric conditioner. Most knitted cotton - especially loopwheeled cotton - will launder better on a cold wash. Hang dry or tumble-dry on the lowest temperature to avoid shrinkage and crinkling. If you need to press the garment, Iron gently on a low heat.
About the Brand
The Teamsters are America’s largest, most diverse union. In 1903, the Teamsters started as a merger of the two leading team driver associations. These drivers were the backbone of America’s robust economic growth, but they needed to organize to wrest their fair share from greedy corporations.
Today, the Union’s task is exactly the same. The Teamsters are known as the champion of freight drivers and warehouse workers, but have organized workers in virtually every occupation imaginable, both professional and non-professional, private sector and public sector.
