Long sleeve? Long-sleeved? Halp!

Please hope me with this seemingly-basic English grammar/spelling question! Which is correct: "long-sleeve t-shirt" or "long-sleeved t-shirt"? Is there supposed to be a hyphen between "long" and "sleeve(d)?

This keeps coming up at work and I can't find any online grammar resource that covers it. I was writing "long-sleeved" but several people corrected me*.
*I still think I'm right, but I need some concrete evidence. And if I'm wrong I'd certainly like to start writing it correctly!
