Have you checked out the AA tri-blend?

Ugh. What's the other blend? I'm sure it'd feel all kinda of bad for me.

I like the 50%cotton 50% modal bson tee i have. Again, it's almost too soft if that makes sense but still is really nice.

Alternative and AA tees kind of suck-- fit is good on some of the designs, but the quality is rather poor. With on-line resellers such as trendyblanks selling these shirts for only $5/ea that should tell you something about the quality. Honestly, these are only good to wear when doing yard work, sports, or as an undershirt.

Look at these brand's t-shirts instead:
Lad Musician
MofM
N. Hoolywood
Wings+Horns

But expect to pay $50 to $100 per shirt.

Does anyone know if there is a US brand of comparable quality to the above that is both readily available at any time in multiple colors and has sizing that goes down as small as AA? I don't think such a product even exists domestically, but I'd love to be proven wrong.

Have heard really good things about the loopwheeler T's - they are impossible to get ahold of. Lachy says they are the best.

Better to keep good sushi as a delicacy for my budget, and while I get cheaper sushi occasionally, it really is incomparable to the good stuff. But when I splurge on omakase, you had better believe I'm going to one of (if not) the best places in town (although this is relative since I limit the choices to those that offer kohada )

Pretty sure black jeans are here to stay

People who pay that much for a t-shirt are fucking insane. Sure, you get a pretty box with N.Hollywood stuff but IT'S A GODDAMNED T-SHIRT

Japanese company right? Do they even normally make t-shirts? All I can find for sale on-line are heavy sweatshirts and hoodies. Although I see they did a t-shirt collaboration with Nike in the past.

Im so fucking uninspired in regards to clothing at the moment. Just wear the same shit as always. Im however considering buying some expensive trickers to spice things up, but somehow I doubt that will actually accomplish anything... I am however very happy with the two last pairs of pants I got, insanly heavy french made cords and us deadstock army fatigues. however, they doent really add anything new.

BB1, Yeah they do, they make super thick T's for domestic production. SelfEdge have some. Lachy, from the forum, told me they were super thick and really sweet when we had an IRL meet up. SuperBobo, isn't that an inherent limitation of workwear-as-lifestyle? KitAkira, I know man I used to be the same way, but a few nice T's are just plain awesome. Looking at an MMM T or two, maybe some wierd stuff. Dismal's grey MMM T is pretty much perfect.

I find it quite contradictory how many members of this forum require far more expensive streetwear pieces than what the average person wears for nearly every item EXCEPT t-shirts. Denim: Average guy = $50 SF guy = $300 Button down shirt: Average guy = $30 SF guy = $200 Boots: Average guy = $80 SF guy = $400 Underwear: Average guy = $2 SF guy = $20 MJK bamboo t-shirt: Average guy = $20 SF guy = $20 Wow, it looks like AA and Alternative have perfected the manufacture of high quality t-shirts to such an extreme degree that both SF and the average guy is in total agreement for once. Amazing! Look,the reasons you'd buy these more expensive t-shirts are the same as why you'd buy a more expensive button down shirt: fabric quality, stitching, design details, fit, and longevity. If you think the same t-shirts marketed and sold primarily to teenagers will excel in these areas, then you are sorely mistaken. Companies like AA are unlikely to ever make quality beyond what their average teenage customer would expect, which is not saying much.

H&M's pricing is fucking whack, and it's bullshit how much they're overpricing stuff in China.

sometimes really high conceptual wear looks like a bunch of rats nibbled on cloth

Should I feel bad that I'm not paying anywhere near what your average SF guy prices are, even for T-shirts?

Yea, I guess so. However, I dont really feel any inclination to dress differently either. The question is then how to spice it up.

I'll admit I'm one of those guys that find it difficult to cough up $100+ on a t-shirt. I personally don't see tees as a very fashionable item. Of course when it comes to higher end tees, there are things such as quality and design aesthetics one can justify paying for. Perhaps I just need to change my mindset and place them above the "basics" category.

I think my average prices are:

Denim: $100-200, 5507s are the most expensive that I've bought, and I got my KMWs for under $100

Button down shirt: $20-60, but this is probably because I live in Korea

Boots: my Redwings were $350 I think, but everything else has been less than $200

Underwear: dunno guess you got me here, heattech is expensive

t-shirt: I get packs when they're on sale at Uniqlo so they're really cheap, have one $30 Muji t-shirt though.

I'm sure a lot of the stuff I get retails for a lot more, but I think we're all cheap bastards. If I see something I really, really want, I'll blow cash on it then and there though.
