lol @ you. i have seen so much tee shirt critiquing here to know that there is a big difference between one that looks good and one that doesnt. i was looking for some helpful advise for my needs, and thankfully, i got some.

the suggestions you got were bad. you should not buy a rick owens t-shirt or ones from COS - what makes those tshirts good is the opposite of what you're looking for - they're sheerish, and they're frequently made of blends so while they drape well, they're often see through. rick owens tshirts are also $500, and why pay $100 to proxy a tshirt? if you want a cheap serviceable decent fitting tshirt look at club monaco or jcrew. you're a pretty regular shaped guy, so most random mall brands will work fine. if you want to spend more money look at LVC, RRL, wings + horns or japanese denim brand (ironheart, loopwheeler). the thing is. though, if your purpose is to wear it under a knit, it doesn't matter what it really looks like, so why spend $100 when $10 will work.

what irritated me about your post is that it reveals one of the most frustrating parts of SW&D - people coming in here and saying 'dress me!'. try some stuff out. experiment. that's what makes streetwear fun - it's much less paint by numbers than CM.

I assumed rick Owens suggestion was a joke. Experimenting is great but when you dont have access in person to brands it can be expensive and frustrating. Maybe you have the patience for it, but I really don't.

With that said, try a WvG tee stitches. lightweight with good drape, long (you may even need to hem), normal neckline. I can't guarantee how it will look on your body, but they're pretty nice. Only $25 with loyalty discount.

in stitches drives to new york like one a month, and lives 45 minutes from DC. I don't know if I'd call his access 'limited'.
post #104570 of 115845
Sorry, I haven't been stalking him. I was speaking from my own perspective, which is limited access. Regardless, there's nothing wrong with asking for suggestions. You evaluate the advice given and make your own decision.

it's the rag & bone cardigan from the Neiman Marcus x Target collaboration. it might be a woman's because it's a large and still fits me decent oversized, but I saw a guy wearing the same one today so probably not.

Nice fit Casey, I got one of those R&BxTarget cardis too, pretty nice for the $25 I spent on it.

basically its perfect. just as i presumed. cheers.gif

@ teger - i did not come here and ask people to dress me while i mindlessly reap the fruits of their labor. i stated very specifically what i wanted, one single clothing item (a tee shirt), for a specific type of fit, and asked for some recs.

what access i may or may not have is irrelevant. i am not (yet) a mostly SWD guy, and i do not really think its worth it (for me) to go on some tee shirt hunting expedition, as my need for a tee is so limited.

all i did was ask people who have knowledge on the matter to rec stuff that might work for me, and that they should not hold back on price because i am interested in whatever is out there (obvi im not about to buy a $500 tee shirt). hell, after 3 or 4 of your useless mad replies you actually gave some helpful ideas, however begrudgingly and angrily.

i dont think anyone here owes me shit, but i know that a lot of people here are happy to help someone out, so i asked for some help on an area i know nothing about to save me some time and effort. thats right, i dont think trying a bunch of tees out right now will be all that beneficial to me. but in general, yes, trying is the best way to learn.

wow, im a such a dick to do that.

breezy - i am sorry but i have no idea what that post meant.

V - will look at WvG. right now that and RRL/RL/LVC sound good to me.

+1 on the WvG tees. For the (loyalty) price they're pretty much unbeatable right now. If you want something a bit thicker, John Elliott & Co tees are solid. (Does anyone else find the JE&Co SF thread a little weird?)

Best plain T's I own in no particular order: Balmain, JE, WvG, W+H. Acne limits are ok too I guess.
post #104579 of 115845
The JE thread is terrible. I've brought this up before. Based on what I've seen from all their other stuff (quite slim) and that one awful fit pic of the tee in the thread, I assumed they would be too slim for stitches.

alden thread still worst thread
