Yeah I agree. I actually did not buy any t-shirts this year from Uniqlo. I'll be wearing some jcrew jersey cotton polo shirts all throughout the summer.The AA shirts are also much longer than Uniqlo. Which I hate. If you do go the AA route just know that some deals are lurking right now on ebay for AA shirts.
I prefer the Uniqlo's. The American Apparel neck band are too constricting.I have bought AA off ebay for $5 each. Not sure if they still allow them to be sold because AA jump on the seller's throats selling them.
