Cuts Clothing Review
Table of Contents
I’m no stylist, but I’ve noticed there’s a fine line between looking homeless and put together. The determining factor? Your t-shirt.
Cuts is an ecommerce brand offering minimalist and premium t-shirts for the modern man. Their “workleisure” tees come in a three trendy cuts, designed to be worn for office, travel, and date night.
The company has recently expanded into women’s wear as well, but I’m keeping the focus on guys in this Cuts clothing review.
Cuts now has a notable Instagram fan base of over 397K followers, but are their premium tees really that good? I’m here to find that out.
Here, I’ll tell you all there is to know about the brand, promotions, customer ratings and more, so you can judge for yourself whether it’s worth the buy.
Overview of Cuts
Cuts is Los Angeles based, founded in 2016 by Steven Borrelli. Steven always struggled to find high quality t-shirts, ones that he could wear professionally and on a night out. Rather than compromise with low quality, he went the entrepreneurial route to design shirts he could actually be proud of.
It makes sense that Borrelli turned to custom production for his ambitions. In his own words, it took countless hours of research and way too much coffee (I feel that). In 2017 prior to their launch, Cuts raised money via Kickstarter to engineer a durable, breathable fabric that goes by the name Pyca™. I looked up that word out of curiosity and it appears that they made it up. Neat.
This is a premium high stretch fabric containing a tri-blend of materials. This combination amounts to wrinkle-free tech and color retention. Pyca™ supposedly offers long-term comfort and feels buttery soft in your hands. Has anyone reading this ever put their hand in butter? Me neither, but I get the sentiment.
Cuts showcases its styles unlike most brands out there, creating a Shop by Cut experience featuring six options. The brand wants to be as authentic as possible—versatile and sophisticated in a low-key way.
If you’d rather catch the highlights of this Cuts clothing review, I offer the good and the bad:
- Shirts contain high, quality custom-engineered Pyca™ fabric
- Classic & versatile designs
- Design collaborations with notable creatives
- Allows you to pay in full or by 4 installments
- Free return shipping on US & Canadian orders
- Ships within the US, Canada & internationally
- Limited selection of shirts; only sell crew, v-neck, and henley
- Pricier than average (tees range from $48-$68)
Cuts Shirts Review
Cuts has a limited selection of v-neck, crew, and henley tees with three hem options (curve, split, elongated). The entire collection is defined by flexible basics: the kind of tees you can wear on a day-to-day basis, and in business casual settings (pro tip: know your office dress code before attempting new outfits).
You can shop by categories like cut, bestseller, new release, and collaborations. Cuts collaborated with film director Matt Komo, photographer and creative director Alen Palander, and Insta-famous photographer TheOneBlondKid to design some pretty trendy tees. I’ll run you through classic styles below.
The V-Neck Curve-Hem is an elevated classic falling smoothly at the waist, so no awkward bunching. The standard V cut contributes to its versatility—it’s easy to imagine a casual vibe with jeans or a blazer on a date, so you look suave but not like you’re trying too hard.
I like that it’s long, but not too long. Overall, it’s a pretty solid shirt I don’t think you can go wrong with.
The V-Neck Curve-Hem comes in six muted shades: black, white, heather green, navy, reddish maroon, and grey. This tee is priced at $48, which is on the lower end for Cuts shirts.
Inspiration for the V-Neck Split-Hem is courtesy of Alen Palander, with a side-split hem and more fitted chest compared to the V-Neck Curve Hem. I think this one is great for more active days or nights, giving you the flexibility to move around.
Cuts tees can establish a completely minimalist vibe or balance out bolder accessories like a sick pair of shoes, a stand-out belt, or chains.
The V-Neck Split-Hem comes in black, white, and slate grey, offering a neutral, distinctive look. This tee currently costs $44, marked down from $48.
The Komo Crew Elongated was conceived by Cuts and, you guessed it, Matt Komo. It’s got cuffed sleeves and a red-stitch breast pocket detail. This crew has a slightly longer bottom hem, which has a more casual vibe, and the tailored fit is meant to accentuate your waist (rather than a belt).
For those who prefer their shirts colored, the Komo Crew doesn’t come through for that. It’s only offered in black, but at least it’s a color that’s easy to match (and could rationalize the $66 price tag). I think every guy should have at least a few good-quality black shirts in their closet, they add a hit of polish to casual looks.
If you’re not a fan of black, rest assured, there are a handful of other crew options with color.
This is the long sleeve version of Cuts’ bestselling Crew Curve-Hem, which I think is also worth checking out. The L/S Crew Curve-Hem is a tailored fit overall, but less tight approaching the waist. You can see in the picture that it’s not tight at the wrists, a feature that can make some long sleeves uncomfortable.
This $58 crew offers a classic style in brighter colors: shades of pink, black, pale purple, reddish brown, cream, navy, and honeycomb. The color options for the L/S Crew Curve-Hem would look good in the summer, and its light and breathable qualities make it wearable all year.
The Crew Elongated is a go-to style with an urban feel. This tee takes the classic crew style and adds a longer hem. I think it would look good on its own, under a leather jacket, or with a casual blazer.
Remember the Pyca™ fabric all Cuts shirts are made of? The breathable tri-blend makes it wearable throughout the day, especially in warm weather. The Crew Elongated is available in black, heather grey, light brown, oatmeal, slate, and reddish maroon, priced at $48.
If you’re not a fashion expert and are only vaguely familiar with Henley tees, this is the cut that has three top buttons. The Henley Split-Hem is another Cuts basic that is better suited for casual settings, like chilling with friends or on a night out.
The three buttons of the Henley Split-Hem are accentuated by the split hem, so I’d say this shirt would definitely look best on its own. This Henley comes in the subtle neutrals: light brown, black, cashew, iron, and light forest green for $68. This is as pricey as Cuts shirts get, don’t stress.
The Henley Elongated is one of my favorite designs. The buttons and longer hem give it an edge over basic and boring tees. This is one of the more casual tees featured in this Cuts clothing review. I’ve seen a lot of guys wear this kind of style to the bar, actually.
This Henley only comes in one color—luckily, black pairs well with basically everything. Maybe not orange, unless it’s Halloween. The Henley Elongated is priced at $58.
Cuts Clothing Reviews: What Do Customers Think?
I saw that customers can leave a Cuts clothing review on the website, and most ratings for shirts range from 4.5-5/stars. Read some customer feedback from verified buyers:
- “These shirts are SO comfy and look great too! Highly recommend.”
- “Best fitting shirt I’ve ever worn, no joke! Definitely going to buy more in the near future.”
- “Great!!! Soft and perfect fit.”
I didn’t stop there for this Cuts clothing review. It’s important to get the full picture by consulting the World Wide Web. The guys on the duuude blog raved about Cuts shirts, rating them 9/10 for construction, 9/10 for material quality, and 10/10 for feel/wearability.
YouTuber Josh Welchert described Cuts as “the only shirt worth wearing,” and the Youtuber that goes by the name Fashionable Father said something along the same lines in his Cuts clothing review.
I found a few complaints filed through the Better Business Bureau. One customer complained that Cuts sent him the wrong shirt size because the one he ordered was out of stock. Another customer received his package late and was sent the wrong size, then had trouble contacting customer service.
Though it’s important to keep these complaints in mind, the good far outweighs the bad here. All things considered, it’s looking pretty good for Cuts.
Our Verdict on Cuts
It’s not difficult for me to give these shirts approval after everything I’ve discovered throughout this Cuts clothing review. I only found a few negative ratings, and what’s more promising than that? According to customers, the Pyca™ tri-blend is comfortable, just like the brand claims.
They’re more expensive than the average shirt, but I’m a firm believer that you have to pay for quality when it comes to certain products. This is especially true for shirts, since cheap ones always fade in the wash and get holey real quick.
So it all comes down to if Cuts is in your budget, and if you think of premium shirts as an investment. These tees are the kind that never go out of style, are comfortable, and last long—they check all the boxes for me.
