T-Shirts that LAST

post #1 of 93
Thread Starter 

Yes, we wear them everyday and buy them a lot so give me your opinion about them.
So who do you think makes long lasting/quality T-Shirts? (graphic/non-graphic)

I personally like Abercrombie because their tees last forever.
maybe it's because the vintage look, but the t-shirt I bought 5 years ago still looks as new.
LRG, Hundereds, Stussy & Zoo York tees are ok.

Gap, BananaRepublic, Diesel, DC, RVCA, Billabong, Electic, Quicksilver, Volcom & O'neil are not that great....

 

 

UPDATE: So here is a list of tees recomended by two or more people on this forum. It seems like AA had the no.1 vote!

I've been unhappy with my t-shirts for a long time but can't seem to find any that are thick and well made. The A&F shirts are thick but they have that damn moose logo and the fit on them is absurd. I've been tempted to try LL Bean's t-shirt, but they only have crew neck.

Where can I get good ones?

I like tshirts that have a tighter arm hole for a better fit, so what I do is get the Hanes perfect T and I taper the sleeves, seems to fit well and has lasted a while.

oh Hanes...never even thought they sell quality shirts... for some reason I always though they were cheap stuff so I got to take a look at them. thanks

AA triblends are probably my favorite now, the OG Helmut Lang shirts were pretty nice (high armholes and sleeves, good taper to the cut) but stupid expensive.

Dude, it's just a little moose. Who cares? And in my experience, the fit is actually pretty spot on and slim. To each his own, though.

Also, AA. I have tshirts from there that have been through absolute hell over the past few years and are still perfectly fine. Gap's new tshirts are pretty solid, the old ones were fucking ballsack shit and fell apart like nothing.

LL Bean t-shirts are also made out of some sort of water/stain resistant material. This basically means that the shirt simply does not breathe. Like wearing a trash bag around your chest. It took me a few months to figure out that it was the t-shirt and not the weather. Returning all that I bought.

Bathing Ape also has great shirts but they are pricy.
LRG, Hundereds, Stussy & Zoo York tees are pretty thick and I think they last pretty long.

Gap, BananaRepublic, Diesel, DC, RVCA, Billabong, Electic, Quicksilver, Volcom & O'neil are decent but I woun't buy them again.

I live in a hot ass environment so I wear t's constantly, only layer once in a while. My MMM, Raf, Geller, etc tees hold up pretty well, but I wear them on coolish nights, hate to sweat in them. The bulk of my t's are asos scoop necks. $10 bucks a pop and hold up nicely. Some CK V-Necks and JL U necks hold up nicely too. Have a JL in black 3 washes still looking nice, no fades.
When I wore A&F in HS I always found them to be heavy and hard for my body to breath in

Last season, they still sucked hard.

I've noticed their colored ones aren't particularly great; should have specified that I was talking about their white v-necks. Since about the turn of the year, the whites have gotten slimmer, thicker fabric, hold up better in the wash, etc. I'm wearing a "best v-neck" in white right now.

Yes, colors still suck. Ballsac thin.
