1. Stanley Stella Shifts Dry Long Sleeve

Our selection of the best blank long sleeve tees begins with a heavyweight. And we mean that in more ways than one. That’s to say, not just the 200 g/m² but also the fact that it’s firmly established with plenty of attractive features. This Stanley Stella Shifts Dry long sleeve (code STTM558) is unsex and comes in some lovely shades. Plus, an extensive size range of XXS to 3XL. Beyond that, it’s made from eco-friendly organic cotton with that popular dry hand feel finish. And, needless to say, a highly respected blank clothing supplier.

2. AS Colour Base Organic Long Sleeve T-Shirt

Our next LS shirt is certainly one to consider when you want high quality allied to environmentally friendly fabrics. The AS Colour Base organic long sleeve tee (code 5029G) is classed as a plain long sleeve t-shirts men’s style. But nowadays there tends to be some flexibility in how these things are interpreted. That aside, this is a nice piece of apparel and it’s made from fully certified GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) cotton. Plus, it’s been around a while and is a long standing favourite both with customers and garment decorators alike.

3. Neutral Recycled Long Sleeve Tees

Here we have a slight deviation from the organic theme. Insofar as it’s not cotton, let alone organic. Nevertheless, it is still a responsibly sourced garment which deserves a mention in this best blank long sleeve tees piece. Because the R61050 Neutral recycled performance long sleeve tee offers exactly what the name suggests. That is, made from recycled polyester and angled toward activity with its wicking properties. Definitely a sustainable option.

4. Earth Positive Heavy Long Sleeve Shirt

Do you fancy more heavyweight action in your organic cotton printed t-shirts collection? Well, we have just the thing. Specifically, this Earth Positive heavy long sleeved tee (EP18L). Made by our London neighbours, Continental Clothing, it’s another style that’s stood the test of time. Not least because of the 190g weight and that always versatile unisex fitting. A great choice when you want your sustainable t-shirt printing UK flavoured.

Besides which, this Bella + Canvas unisex long sleeve (code 3501) has got a rather appealing classic feel to it. It’s what’s termed as a retail fit and the unisex cut is always a winner when you’re custom branding.
