Over the years I’ve heard a lot of people say that they wished Costco would make a v-neck t-shirt. And now they have! That’s right, you can finally get the very nicely made Kirkland Signature 100% pima cotton t-shirts in a v-neck style, instead of just the crew neck. The quality and everything is still the same, just instead of a crew neck, you now get a little breathing room with a v-neck style. So far I’ve only seen/heard of them being available in the US, as well as on Costco.com. However, I’m sure that they will prove a big hit and start to be carried in other Costco locations outside of the US.
The v-neck t-shirts come in a pack of four and are available in men’s sizes small, medium, large, x-large, and xx-large. You can get the four pack in your local warehouse for $16.99. However, if you can’t find the shirts in your local warehouse for some reason, you can also get them through Costco.com for the same price with free shipping and handling. I’m a little sad that the regular crew neck tees are sold in a pack of 6 for $19.99 and I can’t imagine that there needs to be such a difference in price. Those prices breakdown to a price of $4.25 for v-necks versus $3.33 for each crew neck tee; $0.92 more for a v-neck style tee. However, if you’re a v-neck kind of guy, I imagine that price difference won’t bother you, and the tees are still probably way less than you’ll find for similar quality someplace else.
Here’s my review for the regular crew neck tees, but I’m sure it all applies to the v-neck style as well:
These are really nice t-shirts. They are a nice weight, thick enough that you could wear them as just a plain white t-shirt if that is your thing. But they’re not so thick that they feel bulky under your clothing either. As you would expect with this kind of t-shirt, they are 100% combed cotton, which means that they have a nice smooth, soft texture which feels good against your skin. The seams are all reinforced so that you don’t have to worry about durability of the seams in the slightest. And the one thing that seems a must now for all t-shirts, at least in my opinion, is that it is tagless. I’m so glad someone finally realized the need to stop putting tags in t-shirts. All of the same information is still there, it’s just not a tag. I’ve washed these a few times now and have to say that they look just as good after washing as they did when we bought them. There was no shrinking or anything like that. Of course, since they are 100% cotton you do have to make sure you don’t let them lay around in the dryer for too long after they’re finished or else they will get fairly wrinkled. If you’re looking for nice, quality white t-shirts, the Kirkland Signature ones are great and hard to beat.
I know a lot of people will be thrilled to be able to get the high quality Kirkland Signature white tees in the v-neck style. I got a tip from a reader in California that they were available at the warehouses now. His email subject was: “V-Neck T Shirts – tell the world” which I totally loved. So, now I’m telling all of you. And you’ll tell two friends, and they’ll tell two friends, and so on and so on (and I’m totally dating myself with that line, huh?).
