    Ammar: GSM refers to Grams per Square Meter and is used to determine the relative weight of a fabric.

    High quality t-shirts are made from a knitted fine cotton; The finer the cotton, the nicer the shirt.

    Good Luck,

    Andy

    Oooooo……Loaded question.  Best type of cotton T-shirt material is actually a preference.  Which do you prefer?  Long lasting, durability, comfort, feel, texture, color fastness?  All of the above?  The general preferred T-shirt material for color fastness and wearability has been a blend of cotton and polyester.  The blend percentage varies slightly.  These days T-shirt materials are being produced that are very thin and light weight but they can be seen through a little and they can be destroyed rather quickly.  A more precise question you might ask is what quality do you want for you end product?  Then go from there.  My preference is shifting, I tend to like a newer cotton/lycra/rayon blended knit.  It has a drape to it but stays cool and stretches so is flattering and comfortable.  Hope this helps.

    Andy i would like to ask you that just tell me at what GSM the t shirt will be quite best, i’ve seen at many places that somewhere it is single jersey 135 GSM  or somewhere there is 160/200 GSM or 150 and so on….
    so my question to you is that at what GSM i would prefer that is being not much expensive to me neighter goes cheap tell me the moderate value.

    Thank You,
