Frequently Asked Questions
What are the shirts like?
Our shirts all feature unique, custom artwork featuring some of the best charter companies and fishing lodges around the world. All of our t-shirts are custom designed and manufactured by The Red Tuna Shirt Club in the U.S.A. to ensure consistent quality and fit. We do like to mix it up a bit, so our t-shirts come in lots of colors and styles. We use only the highest quality 100% cotton t-shirts and will keep the fit consistent every month. As long as you stay the same size, so will your t-shirts!
Who makes the cut with Red Tuna Shirt Club?
The Red Tuna Shirt Club scours the world’s great fishing destinations to find the best and the most interesting personalities and businesses in saltwater fishing. You’re not going to find any no-name charter services or second-rate captains here. These folks not only catch fish, but they also have some great stories to tell.
But we don’t care if they are the biggest operation in town with the nicest boats. We only care that they are booked up for years because of their reputations and not just because of a slick brochure.
Basically, we go to the top fishing destinations around the world and look for charter businesses with cool names and great reputations…then design really cool t-shirts that our members are proud to wear.
How do I nominate a fishing business?
We would love to have your nomination for a charter business, fishing lodge or marina. Please send us an email with all of the info.
Do you ever repeat a shirt?
Never! Ever! Each month, Red Tuna Shirt Club releases a new and original shirt that we send out to all of our members. Once that shirt is featured, it is retired and will never be repeated.
What sizes do you offer?
We offer shirts in men’s sizes, from Small to 5XL. We also offer both long sleeve and short sleeve in all shirt sizes. Our performance shirt option is only available in sizes Small - 3XL. Click here to view our Sizing Chart.
How big do the shirts run? I’m not sure what size I should get.
Please check out our sizing chart for full details.
Our cotton shirts are pretty standard fitting shirts for guys although our performance shirts run a little big. In general, we recommend that if you’re not sure, choose one side larger – most people would rather have a shirt that is a little big than a little small. And remember, you can change your shirt size at any time with Red Tuna Shirt Club.
Once I join the club, can I change my shirt size?
Absolutely. At any time, you can change the shirt size on your subscription for both month-to-month and prepaid subscriptions. Just make the change by the 24th of the month and your change will be reflected on the following month's shirt, and your next shirt will be in the new size. To change your shirt size, log in at My Account.
Are the shirts pre-shrunk?
Yes, our shirts are pre-shrunk, 100% cotton (or 90% cotton for the heather). As with any cotton shirt, it is possible you may experience very minimal shrinkage (0-10%). Like we said above, we recommend that if you’re not sure, choose one size larger – most people would rather have a shirt that is a little big than a little small. And remember, you can change your shirt size at any time with Red Tuna Shirt Club.
Do you offer pocket tees?
Yes! All pocket tees will feature full color artwork on the back, with a small logo printed on the pocket. Pocket tees are available for an additional $3 more per shirt. All members may switch back and forth between pocket and non-pocket tees, or to long sleeve shirts, at any time. NOTE - you must switch by the 24th of the month for the change to be reflected on the following month's shirt.
Do you offer a long sleeve option?
Yes, we offer all customers the option of choosing long sleeve or short sleeve shirts! Long Sleeve shirts are an additional $5 per month. We also offer long sleeve performance shirts for an additional $14 a month. All members may switch back and forth at any time.
Please note - Some of the colors we use for Red Tuna shirts are not available in long sleeve, therefore our long sleeve shirts are occasionally printed in a different shirt color than short sleeve. This also means that we don’t offer quite as much variety in the long sleeve shirts (there aren’t as many color shirts to choose from!). However, as with our short sleeve shirts, we always pick the best colors available so we think you’ll love them!
How much does it cost?
Our subscriptions start at $22 a month, which includes FREE shipping in the USA. Discounts are available with pre-paid subscriptions – for a complete list of prices and options, please visit our JOIN THE CLUB page.
2XL to 5XL sizes are an additional $3 per shirt, and if you’re a resident of Texas then you’ll have to pay State sales tax. Long Sleeve shirts are an additional $5 per month, pocket tees are $3 per month, and performance shirts are an additional $14 per month.
How are the shirts shipped?
All of our shirts are shipped by the US Postal Service. Please allow 10 business days, but typical delivery time is 3-5 business days after the shirt is shipped. To track your shipments, please log in to My Account.
When will my first shirt ship?
When you sign up for a subscription, we will ship out your first shirt ASAP – generally within a day or two. If you join over the weekend or a holiday, give us an extra few days! Typical delivery time in the USA is 3-5 business days after the shirt is shipped, but please allow 10 business days.
When will I get my new shirt each month?
After you receive your first shirt (see above) you will receive our newest shirt each month around the middle of the month. It will vary from month to month depending on a number of factors, such as if there is a holiday or if the fishing has been particularly good.
Do you ship internationally?
We currently ship only to the USA and Canada. Shipping in the USA is free, and shipping to Canada is an additional $12.95 per month.
How do I cancel my Month-to-Month subscription?
You can cancel a Month-to-Month subscription at anytime – no long term commitment is required. Just visit the My Account page , select the subscription, and click on cancel.
If there is anything we can do to improve your experience, please contact us – we will be happy to make it right before you cancel.
With a Month-to-Month subscription, when am I charged each month?
With a Month-to-Month subscription, you are charged immediately for the first shirt (which we ship out right away), then you are charged on the 1st of each month.
I joined the club, then I was charged again a few days later. What happened?
With a Month-to-Month subscription, you are charged immediately, then on the 1st of each following month. So for example if you join on May 31st, you will be charged again the very next day on June 1st.
If you think you were charged more than once in error, please Contact Us and we’ll look into it right away.
Why was I only charged $1.00?
When you update your payment method with us, we need to verify your payment info to make sure your subscription is set up properly. We credit that $1.00 to your account and take that off of the total of your next prepaid subscription or monthly subscription payment.
Do I have to have all of the subscription information (mailing address, shirt size) if I want to buy a gift?
For our gift subscriptions you will have to have the gift recipient’s shirt size, mailing address, and email address. After you give the gift, you or the gift recipient can make changes at any time.
If you don’t have all of this information, you can give a gift certificate that is good for any of our subscription types – it can be used by anyone, anytime.
Are you going to ruin the surprise?
We would never! With our gift subscriptions, you have the option to set the start date (so you can plan ahead!) or delay the “welcome” email until after the first shirt has been received. You also have the option of having the first shirt shipped to you (with the rest of the shirts going to the gift recipient) so you can present the first shirt in person, with a nice little bow on it (bow not included).
