I just bought 2 1950s t-shirts in xxl. First impressions are honestly, they feel cheap. The neck is not meant to stretch out, but very obviously does. They don't hold their shape well. I have to say I'm really disappointed. I am a larger guy too and the thinner material is unforgiving.

Sadly IH loopwheel have seems on xxl, so I might have to invest in heavier weight TFH

Posted this above, will post it again..
It's important to remember that with Merz there are multiple weights of the same shirts/sweaters. They produce everything from lightweight tees/sweaters to heavier versions.  You can normally tell what you're buying by the price because many retailers don't realize this and just order the cheaper tees for their store and when putting up the product page don't state which version it is.

You purchased the thin (and cheaper) tees.  At Self Edge we only carry the heavier weight t-shirts, and they're amazing in quality.  They make the thin ones as some people do prefer a thinner t-shirt, but generally don't people are not our customers.

I can't speak to Merz's lightweight items, but their heavy Ts and crew sweat I bought from SELA are really nice.  I highly recommend them.

@Dion  and @Appfaff @kiya I think you are right, the 2 thread do seem much more accommodating for a chap of my proportions. I'm going to invest in a 2 thread classic tee. Wish I'd have considered this as they aren't that much more expensive. I've washed and dried my 1 thread and that has made a positive difference. They fit and hang better, and the cut is good.
