RedHead Pocket T-Shirts for Men - Short Sleeve
Back to the drawing board, please
Picked 3 of these up after I had trouble finding the St John's Bay shirts that JCPenney used to sell (which were great price AND quality). It seems that RedHead/BassPro's big and tall sizes run a little on the small side - usually wear a 4X, but the necks on these shirts were a bit small. After 1-2 washes, the "bacon collar" problem that other reviewers have reported showed up. Wish I had read reviews first. Seems that the company has changed factories and the new shirts aren't what the old ones were. Colors are great, material is soft, but does not release stains easily, with Tide stick or OxiClean. Can't recommend these, at least to the big and tall crowd. It's a shame because they seemed like high quality, high value shirts in the store. Maybe they will consider going back to the old ones people loved.

loss in quality
I have been purchasing these tee shirts for many years and I can tell the quality of the cloth has gone down (seems thinner) and the shirt pockets are pulling at the corners leaving small holes. I have noticed this with the last two purchases (2010 and 2011). I have started washing the tee inside out due to the pocket tears per a family members suggestion and it seem to have reduced the tearing. The fit is excellent, the wear quality is slightly less, and the color is fading sooner. I want to continue to purchase these tees but if the quality continues to decrease I will be forced to find another supplier. I have already stopped purchasing them for gifts.

I purchased 7 t- shirts assorted colors. I'm very happy with the comfort level and quality for the price . These t-shirts wash well and don't shrink, I have searched the internet and only found what I was looking for at Bass Pro Shop, also they have great customer service . I will always purchase my tee shirts from Bass Pro Shop.

Not the same as before
I recently purchased 3 of these T's to replace some older one's.
I love the Red Head pocket T's, But the newer batch is a much inferior product. Anyone who wishes to buy these and has older versions maybe disappointed. The fabric is much lighter and the distinctive upper back yoke is gone. They are still an ok T but not the quality the were before. I'm sure they are trying to keep the price low and still maintain a profit margin. I would prefer to pay more and get the old quality. I would still recommend a buy on these as the price is fair, and the pocket is handy.
