i dont get why no one invests in nice shirts.
post #19067 of 44840
Are we speaking of button up dress shirts or just tee shirts? I know that I love my Corpus tee's and would love the opportunity to stock up on white black and blue ones if the option presented itself. $40 a shirt can be a bit steep in all honestly but I do get tons of wear out of my main two already.

I've been back and forth on it. My hands-on experience with higher-end brand tees is limited, but Odyn Vovk is the only one I wouldn't mind paying close to retail on. Someone with a more limited wardrobe, though, is probably better off picking up a few staples for whatever their aesthetic may be. I'm in the midst of a wardrobe overhaul, so I don't own some pieces I deem more critical than tees. I don't own a non-winter pair of boots, so it doesn't make sense for me to drop $50+ on a tee when an important item such as a pair of boots is absent from my closet.

this is pretty much it; I still spend the most $ on footwear and jackets. The only nice tees I have (nice shirts, too) I've bought when they're cheeeeap on sale (forward, gilt, etc). If hanes made a tee that fit me I'd probably never wear anything else.

because lane, the quality differential between an 'expensive' tee and a hanes tee is very, very small. with tees, more than anything else, you're paying for a brand. j crew v necks on sale for $9 til i die.

quality differential is small. styling differential is large, unless you're wearing plain t-shirts which you evidently are

maybe for something like LUC, but for something like rick or odyn vovyk? not really

I've had some W&H tees for like 4-5 years that are still in great shape. Nothing from Hanes, AA, or H&M has lasted nearly as long.
post #19074 of 44840
if we took the tags off, could you pick out W+H tees from J Crew, Hanes or Banana Republic?
post #19075 of 44840
Who cares wether you can tell them apart when they're all brand new? The point is once you start wearing them, the W&Hs will last and the stuff from H&M, AA, and Hanes won't. I don't have any experience with BR or J Crew so I can't comment on their durability.

I have Hanes tshirts that are 7 years old. it probably has more to do with your washer/dryer than the clothes...
post #19077 of 44840
it's pretty easy to pick out a nice fabric against a standard one. anything that's pima cotton still stand out compared to hanes, it's not really a contest. but arguing the relative value of designer clothes is so played...

Teger,

As someone who owns Jcrew t-shirts as well as more fashion brand ones, you can't really think that, can you? The single only jcrew t-shirts I ever think look decent are the slim fit jaspe v-necks. Most of the others fit me fine in the shoulders/length but aren't tapered enough thru the waist and look like shit. Basically what I am saying is that cut sucks in most 'mall brand' t-shirts, imo.

I have Express V necks that I've worn to the gym for like 2 years now that are still doing just fine. They were like 3 for $36 too.

well yea, that's the argument - cut and fit. fwiw the standard j crew vnecks fit me well, and i hate the jaspe ones.
