I would also consider 50/50 blends. When I did more of this stuff, I came across a company (they only do B2B) called New Line Apparel (NLA), which makes a 50/50 cotton poly blend tee that is incredibly resilient, but also very lightweight and soft. Polyester gives a lot of strength for not a lot of weight, and both the hand and the drape of the fabric was really nice. Cotton poly also allows you to get that heathered effect that we were looking for at the time.

i feel like, tons of SF members were in college when CPs retailed for $325 and went on sale for like <$150 (certainliy <$200)...
now that we all make money all this shit is so expensive , even then $250 today is easier on the wallet for me than $150 was in college
where did all the poor people go?
In other news, tried on LUC pants for the first time today, brilliant cut. Want to find a pair of these that fit slightly better
(By the way, the t-shirt in this pic is a three year old AA tri-blend that's been washed at least 50 times)
Are cuved inseam and classic Js a different cut?? Ahh!! They were one of those!
Looks like Lift is having a sample sale this weekend - first I've heard of one of those. Guess I'll go check it out
Well, there's been a few J pants styles. For the two I know they both have one seam that swings round from the inner thigh to stop near the top of the knee and then two back seams; both start above the pocket, one travelling underneath it with the patch pocket then placed over, and the other closer to the edge of the pants near the belt line. The anatomical have the further out one curve out and over the knee while one hugs the ankle. The regular have both twisting more slightly with a similar though tighter fit.
The curved inseam pants have an outseam that begins as usual and stops at the upper thigh, with the inseam starting on the inner thigh, then curving to inside of the knee and then coming to the back of the calf. It's among the slimmest of the LUC pants I've tried.
That's a lot of messy writing, but hopefully it makes it a little clearer!

I've recently gotten into a Japanese brand of t-shirts called Barns. Loopwheeled, uniquely curved chest pocket, more natural feeling/ rougher yarns, interesting subtle textures, and very short, trim vintagey cuts. Much more interesting in texture than the mass produced Hanes stuff I have, and much more stout than American Apparel. I think it looks good with the kind of stuff I often wear these days (jeans, leather jackets, and the like).
This type of post makes me realize that now that we have had an APK and Nahneun fit pic in the WAYWT, you maybe the new Great White Whale.
