In this article I talk about a Cotton t-shirt with Atari's Logo, acquired on AliExpress, shop HOOK ON YOU. The store unfortunately no longer has this t-shirt template, so the link is for other Atari logo t-shirts.
A question that I've had several times here in Skooter Blog is: “Where to buy branded clothing abroad?” I usually don't know how to answer, because I don't usually buy branded clothes, with rare exceptions.
On AliExpress it is possible to find non-branded clothes at good prices, compatible or even smaller than that of popular stores in Brazil. But I always avoided it because I feared for the quality and the risk of not serving. My t-shirts I used to buy at Hering or in Polo Wear, and only in promotions. On a daily basis I wear more t-shirts than shirts, so it's natural that I buy more t-shirts.
Prices Hering unfortunately it has gone up. The last shirts I bought were from Polo Wear. Four for R $ 100,00, in installments in 10 times. The price was good, but the quality disappointed me… they shrunk a lot after the first wash.
So I decided it was time to give the Chinese a chance. My t-shirts are typically plain, but in AliExpress the prints are more common. thought: if it has to be printed, I'm going to buy a shirt with a print that I can identify with. And then I ended up seeing these T-shirts with the Atari logo, the company that did the first video game I had! It was a great request…
Many colors available. How to choose? The original Atari logo was red and many T-shirts “officers” of the time were made in red with the white logo. So I ended up choosing the red shirt with the white logo. But many other combinations were also beautiful.
I like baggy shirts. My normal size would be G or XG, depending on the factory, but I usually buy XG or XXG to make them more comfortable. In that purchase I ordered a XXG, the largest size available, not to have an error. According to the announcement, were sizes from the United States.
The shirt didn't get small, but it also didn't get wide. So be warned: it is better to buy at least one size more than what you usually use in Brazil to ensure.
The quality of the fabric is good. Everything indicates that it is really 100% cotton. The seams, however, are not the best. In the first wash, it has already slightly removed the bar. But at least in subsequent washings he didn’t sew anymore. The print is also intact.
Interestingly the label of Cotton t-shirt with Atari's Logo indicates that it was made in Bangladesh. I expected them to be made in China itself.
A HOOK ON YOU highlights the qualities of your t-shirts in the text: non-deforming collar, quality control, quite breathable, does not fade, does not deform. In fact, so far it has not deformed, it is breathable, not faded and not deformed. The print was also intact after the washes. The sewing was also done right, just the line didn't help.

And I'm ending here the article on Cotton t-shirt with Atari's Logo. I liked the shirt and the quality of the fabric. The only caveat is due to the fray that occurred in the bar. For the price it was not possible to demand much. I even ended up buying another T-shirt with the HOOK ON YOU. There are other stores, but at least I already know what to expect and prices are among the lowest.
