The Tabor T Shirt is a relaxed knit top with several sleeve options and two collar width variations. So many great options for every Nebraska season!

    • Fabric:
      • T-version: Light weight, fluid knit fabric with at least 25% crosswise stretch such as rayon, bamboo jersey and for a more boxy fit, cotton, linen and hemp jersey. 
      • Sweater-version: sweater knits with at least 25% crosswise stretch. For best results for the neck use natural fiber sweater wool jersey, novelty sweater knits and some rib knits that are not extremely stiff. Caution: for neckband, avoid knits with excellent stretch recovery such as pontes and high lycra content fabric, 6% above, to perform at its finest without puckering or gathering.
