Cuts Clothing Review: Durability Meets Comfort

Featured Product: Cuts Pyca Pro Curve Hem Black Tshirt

Price: $48

The Cuts Pyca Pro Curve Hem Black Tshirt has the look and feel of no other Tshirt. The fabric feels soft, smooth, and is meant to move with your body with ease. It’s preshrunk and wrinkle free to make it one of the easiest garments to throw on and go. All Cuts shirts are made to wear at the office, the gym, or for a date night. The Pyca Pro Curve Hem only accentuates this by reducing bunching at the waist to create an even more contoured, flattering look.

Ratings Breakdown

quality

These Tshirts have superior stitching and extremely durable material which creates more longevity than most other mainstream brands.

value

Cuts Tshirts don’t quite compare with industry leaders in this category, but they’re better than the mainstream budget Tshirts. Therefore warranting them a middle of the road ranking.

customer experience

The fit and feel of Cuts Tshirts are among the best out there. They stand up well to a long day, a lot of abuse, and still look good at the end of it.

brand

Since this brand doesn’t have as much notoriety as other brands yet, there is less recognition while wearing Cuts Tshirts. They do donate a small amount, sometimes, but not enough to warrant any significant accolades for their efforts.

Who is Cuts?

Cuts was founded by Steven Borrelli in 2016 as a solution to an issue he’d be continually having. Since the modern professional doesn’t wear suits nearly as often as they have in the past, the current clothing lines weren’t keeping up with the times. Steven had been on the hunt for a more versatile Tshirt to wear for all different occasions, instead of just one. And since he couldn’t find a shirt that would give him what he wanted, he created his own line instead.cuts-founder

The Cuts line was designed to be worn in almost every modern day scenario. These include:

  • The office
  • The gym
  • Date night
  • Hanging out with friends
  • Traveling

In order to achieve this, Steven had to work on creating a better, more long lasting shirt. He also wanted to create a bit more versatility with his Tshirts. He was able to achieve this by creating a 3-step system with which to choose the best fit for each person. 

First step:

  • Fitted or Regular style

Second step: 

  • Regular, Split-hem, or Elongated bottom cut

Third step:

  • Crew, V-neck, or Henley collar

Once the desired shirt style has been narrowed down, all the consumer has to do is choose the color they want and they’re good to go.

The idea of more versatile clothing is what a lot of us have been looking for recently. But, what about giving back to society? Well, while Cuts doesn’t regularly give to any charities or philanthropies, they did create one beneficial partnership. Cuts partnered with a non-profit in the Orange County, CA area to help give back to adults looking for professional work. 

Working Wardrobes helps to give professional clothing to adults searching for gainful, professional employment. Cuts partnered with them to donate one shirt for every order purchased. And as a bonus to Cuts customers, they offered 20% of the entire order when you purchased during the specified time window.cuts-pyca-black-backIt doesn’t appear they are currently offering this special though. But it’s a good thing to keep an eye out for if creating some positivity in society is important to you when you purchase new products. And hopefully, Cuts will partner with some other non-profits in the future to give back even more.

Cuts Comfort & Performance

I was exceptionally pleased with my Cuts Pyca Pro Curve Hem Black Tshirt. The fabric was light and stretchy, but also felt soft and smooth to the touch all day long. Out of the first 3 weeks I had my Cuts shirt, I wore it 5 times. Every time I picked it out of my closet, I loved it even more.

The Cuts shirt was a perfect fit with jeans or khakis. It also stood up well to exercise, without showing any signs of wear, nor any of the stinky exercise smells. I washed it multiple times and there weren’t any signs of pilling or fading.cuts-pyca-black-stretch

I ordered my usual size Large (6’, 180 lbs) and it fit perfectly. The length was perfect because it wasn’t too long or too short, like a lot of other Tshirt’s I’ve tried in the past. The neck and the length of the seams also fit seamlessly. So, overall there really isn’t anything negative I can say about my experience with my Cuts Tshirt.

The biggest question now is how long will this Tshirt stand up to others I’ve had in the past? If it lasts exponentially longer than other Tshirts, then it will be well worth the initial price tag.

Is Cuts Good Quality?

Originally, Cuts was designed and produced right in Los Angeles, CA. But after a couple of years, the company realized they were going to need to outsource their supply chain in order to continue to grow. The first place Cuts outsourced their production to was China (no surprise there).cuts-pyca-fabric-2-

But, they realized soon afterwards that the China outsourcing wasn’t cutting it (no pun intended). So, Cuts went to their supply chain solution company, Sourcify, to find a better option. Sourcify then moved Cuts production to India, Vietnam, and the Philippines instead. This move alone was able to increase their profit margins, quality, consistency, and ship time to the end consumer.

Of course, it would be preferable if they could have continued to produce inside the United States. But, it’s also understandable that it’s difficult to make the profit margins work successfully with the much higher labor costs associated inside the US. However, the other big factor that speaks to their quality is the Cuts special Pyca blend fabric.cuts-pyca-fabric

Pyca fabric is considered a tri-blend fabric. Tri-blend fabrics are made up of cotton, polyester, and rayon. The three fabrics combined are used to create moisture wicking ability, durability, longevity, and soft feel to the touch. By using this type of fabric in their shirts, Cuts is creating a quality product that’s meant to last a lot longer than just a cotton or polyester shirt normally would.

Is Cuts Worth It?

If you’re getting to the place in life where you want more diversity from your clothes and for them to last longer, then Cuts is probably worth it for you. The initial $48 price tag for a Tshirt can stop a lot of consumers in their tracks. Luckily, Cuts has partnered with Klarna to offer financing options on their products.cuts-klarnaIf making the full payment up front is too much for your budget, then you’ll have the option of making payments in 4 installments instead. No matter which way you choose to do it, there is something to be said for quality over quantity.

And in this instance, the Cuts clothes certainly seem to provide a higher quality product than others on the market. With the addition of the increased diversity of the Cuts Tshirts, it’s hard to balk at the price tag if the shirt really serves 4 different functions.

Frequently Asked Questions

Not all Tshirts are made the same way. Before any consumer decides to spend a little more on their Tshirt, there are bound to be questions as to what makes each one special. And Cuts are no different. So, here we answer some of the most common questions prior to making your first purchase with them.cuts-pyca-black-life

Is Cuts clothing worth it?

Cuts clothing seems to be worth it for most consumers. If you want clothes that last longer and are willing to pay a slightly higher price for them, then Cuts may be for you. Their products are not only made to last longer, but also to move, fit, and feel better with you.

Does Cuts clothing shrink?

Not really. The Pyca tri-blend fabric they use is similar to pre-shrunk fabrics a consumer may have seen before. This means there may be minimal shrinkage after the first washing or two, but not even enough to really notice. Therefore, however the Cuts shirt fits when a consumer first gets it is how it will fit for the longevity of the product.

How long does Cuts take to ship?

Typically, a Cuts order will ship out within 24 hours of the order being placed. If expedited shipping has been paid for, you can expect your Cuts order within 2-3 business days after it’s been shipped. If standard shipping was chosen, however, the Cuts order can take 5-7 business days to get to the consumer instead.

Does Cuts have a warranty?

Unfortunately, Cuts does not offer any warranty on their products.

What is Cuts returns or exchange policy?

If you’re not happy with your purchase for any reason, you’ll have 20 days to return or exchange the item. All Cuts returns and exchanges have to meet the following criteria in order to be accepted:

  • Must be in original barcoded black bag
  • Unwashed
  • Unworn
  • No longer than 20 days from the delivery date of the product

Cuts offers free returns and exchanges by partnering with Happy Returns. This company has over 2600 physical locations that you can drop your returns/exchanges at nationwide. Please note that Cuts does not take any returns or exchanges on accessory items though.

Does Cuts sell anything besides Tshirts?
