With the exception of fabric, I don't get offered a lot of freebies.
But I did get an offer recently that sounded interesting. A company called The Uniform asked if I'd like to sample a shirt they manufacture -- a white knit shirt styled exactly like -- and potentially a substitute for -- a formal men's dress shirt. I said, sure!
The Uniform shirt is sewn in the USA (South Carolina) and made from 100% cotton pique. Currently it's offered only in white. The shirt costs $100 (4 for $300) and domestic shipping is free.
You can see a few shots of Michael and me in the shirt (a size Small) below. It hasn't been laundered but it definitely fits Michael, who's broader in the chest and shoulders and narrower in the waist, better than it does me. The sleeve and torso length is also better for Michael (who's 5'9") than for me (I'm 5'7").
Take a look:
I like this shirt a lot but Michael loves it. And since it fits him so well I gave it to him. (One less shirt I have to sew for him, right? Just kidding.)
I'm not sure a workplace that requies formal white shirts would let a knit shirt like this one pass but it's still super comfortable, well made, and smart looking.

What do you think? Do you like the idea of a knit shirt styled like a dress shirt?
Have a great day, everybody!
