Alternative Apparel has built a reputation as having some of the softest, fashion blanks around. They are also known for their eco-friendly and vintage-inspired styles. They offer the widest variety of blanks, outerwear, pants and accessories of all of the brands mentioned in this article. In their Unisex blank t-shirts alone they offer 44 different styles. The most popular Alternative blanks you find brands using are the 100% Cotton #1070 Basic Crew, the #5050 Keeper Vintage Jersey Tee, and the #1973 Eco Jersey Crew.
Alternative offers tearaway tags on most styles. Because Alternative is also a retail brand, they are known for their offering of fashion-driven styles and colors.
While the fit of Alternative’s blanks was a bit confusing in years past, they have now organized their fits into 3 distinct camps: Classic, Slim and Relaxed. The majority of Alternative’s styles are Classic Fit and are true-to-size.
Some of their more iconic styles, including many of the Eco Jersey and Eco Fleece styles, are Slim Fit. A couple of their women styles are marked as Relaxed Fit and feature more of an oversized, boyfriend cut.
