Looking for a specific shirt style.

Having a hard time finding the (mens) shirt I want. Basically, I want a high quality long sleeve tee with these specs. Not 100% cotton (no shrinkage). Not ribbed cuffs. Solid colors only, not white, no art. Thanks!

I buy 100% cotton long sleeve T's for MrR all the time, and they don't shrink. well, unless they get way overdried. Garment washed or prewashed tees won't shrink, as they've already been washed in industrial washers/driers. Don't wash in hot water, don't overdry, they won't shrink.

Hanes makes a hemmed-sleeve LS tee shirt that's garment washed. Also, Apt9, Sonoma, Sonoma (henley), Calvin Klein, Jockey, Nautica, Merona, Champion, Croft & Barrow, Urban Pipeline. (Mr R has shirts from C&B, Apt9, Merona, and Sonoma that he's been wearing for at least a year and none of them have shrunk. Some of them longer than that, but I don't keep track of how old the shirts are.)

If you absolutely insist on not 100% cotton, you may need to get into "performance" gear, like Champion or Mountain Hardwear or REI.
