Wearing tzitzit on a traditional tallit katan entails wearing three layers: undershirt, tallit katan and a shirt. Over a decade ago, NeaTzit introduced an undershirt tzitzit, which allowed you to cut that down to two layers. And now that has been cut down to one layer!
Meet the TzitzShirt, which allows you to wear just one layer with tzitzit dangling. Features:
- 100% cotton
- Kosher tzitzit, tied by hand
- Built-in corner pockets protect tzitzit strings while laundering
According to halacha, for a garment to be required to have tzitzit attached, it must be open more than halfway up the sides. The revolutionary TzitzShirt is open almost all the way up to the sleeve, but when worn the sides are kept closed with a row of snaps, and voila!, tzitzit on a shirt in a style commonly worn.
Concept endorsed by the late Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu zt"l, who served as Chief Rabbi of Israel.

Big disadvantage - buttons on the sides tear out. I had to fix all of them. On all shirts...
I purchased a TztitzShirt which I really enjoyed, especially with the side buttons. The fit was great and was very comfortable. However, upon the first wash in the washer on "gentle cycle" undid the tzitzits. I used a tzitzit bag which has worked for me in the past with other tzitzits, but this seems to be an issue for me personally when I order "machine spun" tzitzit. My advice is pay the extra amount and get the "handspun" instead. It's worth it to me. My next tallit katan will definitely be handspun. Otherwise, the tallit itself was great and so was the service from Ben's Tallit Shop.
I have bought this TzitzShirt as my first Tallis Katan. The fabric is comfortable.
I just wish it was bit slimmer fit than this. Suggestion: add the slim fit model, if it can be allowed by the halacha of course.
[The minimum size is from 18 to 24 inches, depending which opinion you follow. Many tallit katan garments are relatively wide, to meet this requirement. - Ben]
I just bought this white tzitshirt, and i'm very pleased with it. Can't say any more ,but gorgeous!
I did a trial order of two TzitzShirts to test them out and liked them so much that I ordered another four. These are very comfortable to wear and have eliminated the need for a separate t-shirt. I also used Ben's tzitzit tying and had them done in the Rambam custom. I highly recommend this product and Ben's tying service, and will definitely be buying more in the future.
I am very pleased with my White TzitzShirt. It fits well and is very comfortable (the material has a soft feel to it). It also washes well and dries very quickly. I highly recommend it.
These tzitzit are great, I've tried a few types and these are the best yet. I like the length and feel of the tzitzit and the soft material. Highly recommended!
