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.
Note: The fabric alongside the snaps is prone to tear if pulled. To open the snaps, pry them apart by inserting a fingernail.

The construction, the finishing, and the halachic observance have never been so pleasurable before!
One thing that I never liked with the Katan is the roll-up or side-roll, and the button snap-off at the underarm provoking those two situations.
The Katan has an excellent construction (I ordered three, I have only used a couple of them) where the poppers (buttons) stay closed when needed giving the tallit a proper construction overall.
Very pleased with it!
This is very comfortable and fits very well under clothes. I love it!
GREAT SERVICE AND PRODUCT
I liked the product and service. But I don't like the V neck. It is just not my style. I will order another with round neck soon. Thanks for the great service.
Fast shipping and great quality shirt with Chabad style tying. Toda raba!
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.
