I’ve mentioned this a few times, but I’ve been finding myself wearing more blanks than graphic t-shirts as of late. I’ve also started to shift over from wearing American Apparel blanks, to wearing Alternative Apparel. This came partly because of American Apparel’s new policy, which makes it impossible to get cheap blanks at wholesale prices, but more importantly, because Alternative Apparel’s shirts are incredibly, ridiculously comfortable.

So, if you’re cheap and like comfortable shirts (as I am and do), I thought I’d share my source for wholesale Alternative Apparel blanks.

The cheapest I’ve been able to find is…Jiffy Shirts! They’ve got excellent prices on the shirts themselves, and also don’t gouge you on shipping, which is hard to find when you’re dealing with wholesale stuff. There shirts may cost like $.50 more than some other places, but when you factor in shipping I think it more than evens out. Go check em out if you’re in need of cheap blanks. I really recommend the Perfect Tee (AA4540–it’s what I’m wearing as I type this), but even the basic tee (AA05) is insanely comfortable.

If Jiffy Shirts doesn’t have what you want, at least use an Alternative Apparel coupon to save on their official site.

  1. […] sale going on, with 11 (or 12 maybe?) shirts on sale for only $12. He prints on really good quality Alternative Apparel blanks, so that’s a dang good deal. Check it out! Retro Plus Apparel’s Take on the Twitter […]

  2. Jiffy Shirts doesn’t ship to Canada unfortunately, do you know of any really good sites that do?

  3. How does perfect tee and basic tee differ, I know you mentioned comfortability, is there any other differences in style or cut?

  4. Wow cool, I’ll keep that in mind. Its funny how blank tees have made such a fashion statement, but American Apparel is bankrupting me so I’ll have to check Jiffy shirts and Alternative Apparel out.

  5. Alternative apparel also has this cotton line of shirts/sweaters that I can’t seem to find elsewhere. The quality, texture, and way it feels on my skin is superb. Still a bit pricey at retail for plain design/blanks, but cheaper and better quality than am ap, which I like. Thanks for sharing hopefully I can score some at wholesale now.

  6. I really like American Apparel shirts as they actually fit me, plus I print graphic tees on them… (I’m a rather skinny, but tall guy). I’m definitely interested in Jiffy as well. Does anyone know how their small sizes fit?
