T-Shirts that LAST - Page 3

post #31 of 93
Unis tees are slim and medium length. Very nice material with interesting striations. It would be easier to look at pictures on the website- mine fit exactly like those pictures, and I sized in accordance with their size chart (40 chest, went with an m, incidentally).

hollister/a+f tees are solid in terms of fit and quality too bad they have gay designs all over them

I'm going to try the "Roaring Brook" crew that someone linked earlier next time I pass by an A&F but I'm not confident as everything I've tried on there so far makes me look like an old gay douchebag. I've even asked one of their SA just what they mean by "muscle fit" when I'm not even THAT muscular and my shoulders are nearly busting the seams of their XL. I also own a bunch of AA "2001" T-shirts and they're not as thick as the A&F polos I've tried on but they fit better. I'm 6', 42R, 33W and their L fits me very well post-shrink (there seems to be some variation in sizing depending on color; all my AA shirts are tagged L but for some reason the brown one is a bit tight on the shoulders and arms, white and black are spot-on). Costco Kirkland T's are excellent; very thick and durable. The only issue I have with them is that they are cut quite long (I guess for their intended use as undershirts) but 2" chopped off the hem of size M in grey heather and I'm golden. I never tried black, and white in L were too big, and M too small (post shrink). EDIT: Abercrombie & Fitch Roaring Brook crews are fail, at least for me. The material is thin and flimsy and the cut is very strange indeed -- in XL the shoulder seams run over my collarbones and curve toward my chest, the sleeve is cut too high (can see where my deltoids meet the biceps) yet the shirt is blousy from the mid-chest down through the torso. On a positive note, in gray and dark gray the moose logo is fairly innocuous. Unfortunately I left my phone in the car but I'll try to remember next time I pass by so I can get a fit pic up.

Velve Sheen Tee's are on sale at Context for $25 bucks a pop. Just got a two-pack in green myself. I have a couple of the long sleeves and they're great.

Shout-out for Unis tees. Some that I still have for knocking around are over 5 years old. Fantastic quality and great fit.

Velvetmen t-shirts are also great, not too hard to find on sale either. Just avoid their "layered" pieces with a t-shirt inside another top.

+1 for Gap. I think 90% of my plain t-shirts are from there and all were under $10, sometimes only a few bucks, on sale. They last fine on me, and even if they didn't... I wouldn't be too concerned.

AA Tri-Blends are win

Where is a good place to buy AA tri-blends in bulk? I could use with more basics

Duluth Trading Company makes some great shirts. They're cut longer so they stay tucked in, they're cut really well on the sides and they've held up. I wouldn't expect a site that makes working gear to have a very well-cut tee. http://www.duluthtrading.com/store/c...ure=product_12 When I bought them, months back, I bought 8 and they were about $11 each. An increase in price like that makes me think they have a hit on their hands, which they should - these are the kinds of tee shirts I was looking for.

you know, as much as A&F is not my style, everything I bought from them in HS is still kicking. 15 years of yard work, mechanical labor, just using those clothes to beat on... and they still are holding up. I gotta give them credit.
