    These t-shirts are described as 100% cotton, but further down it states that they are 65% polyester, 35% cotton.

    Sounds like the T shirt was made of 2 different materials
    65% of one material was 100% polyester
    35% of another material was 100% cotton.
    eg a t shirt with a lace insert/ overlay.
    Which is how I reacd the advert.

    I think items usually say something like 'main 100% polyester, trim 100% cotton' in those circumstances.
    If the T shirt was the same material all over i.e. no trim it should have stated '65% polyester 35% cotton'.

    As for example M&S and Next do with their linen/cotton mix clothes.
