The (semi-)official "slutty t-shirts" thread

post #1 of 127
Thread Starter 
Before we kick things off, I'd like to clarify that we use the term "slutty" in a sex-positive sense (see link for example).

This thread is intended to serve as a resource for those of you who are tired of v-necks, feel strangled by crew necks, or just want to show your sharp, shiny collarbones to the world.

While long the realm of the tall and emaciated, this thread welcomes the built, the bulky, the short, the shrimpy, the average, and the "athletic" (whatever the hell that actually means at this point).

Post your pics, fits, reviews, rants, raves, and recommendations.

I'll start with a few of my own, covering fit, composition, care, cost, quality, sizing, and sluttiness.

American Apparel summer loose crew
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
A cheap, easy, and low-risk entry into the world of scoop-necks, more of a relaxed neck opening than a true scoop or u-neck (hence the product name).

- fit: slim and long through the body with some taper; stacks nicely; sleeves are a bit on the short and wide side relative to the torso.
- composition: 100% cotton.
- care: machine wash and dry.
- cost: $20-something at retail, but never pay retail for AA.
- quality: somewhere in the range of mediocre to relatively acceptable. Like any AA shirt, it could fall apart on the first wear or it could last you for years. The cotton is relatively soft, but there's no real character to it and it doesn't have a particularly nice drape or anything.
- sizing: go TTS for a regular to slim fit, up one for a slouchy fit.
- sluttiness: minimal; more of a wink and a sly smile

BLK DNM t-shirt 5
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
- fit: body is quite long and fairly slim; sleeves are relatively long and fairly slim.
- composition: 100% rayon
- care: machine wash and hang to dry (apparently it shrinks a ton if machine-dried)
- cost: $55 at Park & Bond, but can be had for < $30 on sale
- quality: the construction isn't amazing, but the rayon feels nice. It's a step up from AA, but not a top-tier t-shirt.
- sizing: down one for a relatively slim fit. TTS will probably give a dropped shoulder effect and risk veering off into muumuu territory. It's possible that it would work out if you go TTS and machine dry.
- sluttiness: pretty damn slutty. This shirt says that not only do you put out on the first date, but you probably take home randoms you meet at bars.

There's also a long-sleeve version that's decent, but the fit is a little odd; the sleeves are tight enough that I can see the veins in my forearms, but the armhole is cut weirdly low.

Silent taku and tonco
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
- fit: both have slim, long-ish sleeves and a lot of length in the body. Taku has a nicely tapered torso, which helps it bunch up at the waist if you're into that sort of thing. Tonco is a straighter cut and tends to just hang down.
- composition: 100% cotton
- care: I just machine wash and dry. The neckline warps a tiny bit, but not necessarily in a bad way.
- cost: retail is > $100, but I've got one for $20 (back when Gilt had them all the time) and one for $40-something (from My Habit). I probably wouldn't pay more than $50.
- quality: pretty awesome, IMO. Both have some asymmetric seams, the construction feels solid, and the cotton has a really nice hand and drape to it (although it's not particularly thick).
- sizing: down one for both. TTS is going to look oversized.
- sluttiness: moderate for taku (you buy a stranger a drink), a little sluttier for tonco (you show said stranger how you can do that trick where you tie a cherry stem with your tongue).

Kowtow Clothing from New Zealand. Good women's collection too.
Tees start at around $50 plus shipping. Very nice cotton and all the fair-trade stuff.

If your´re showing some (upper) abs, is that taking it a bit too far (low)?

Although I couldn't really find anymore stock photos lurking around, I find UU T-shirts to have a great scoop-neck and slouchy fit.
The neck-line is relaxed/wide, and if sized up one gives a very breezy fit.
I own a few myself, and when washed a few times it gets a very interesting warped fit as well.

Just walk around shirtless at that point...

Before washing, the Hanes v-necks have a nice little slutty drop to them. Plus, they're super cheap. Not a bad beater.

Rad, good to know. What's the length like on them?

They're actually cut a bit longer than a standard T-Shirt, if not maybe about the same.
I usually wear an XS, but I bought my UU shirts in S and they reach at the bottom of my button-fly. (Bit hard to explain, but cut fairly moderate)

Does ASOS restock their U-necks pretty regularly? Had a few dark grey/black ones in my cart, and they all sold out frown.gif

Zara always has some good joints. I know, low quality but TBH T-shirts don't last that long for me regardless of quality. They fit slim physique well.

 

Acne limits are also good, if you are slim but athletic but overpriced IMO ($80+).

 

A lot of times I'll just buy a regular t-shirt but cut off the collar as well.

 

The other strategy is the cop a high quality material at low price at an outlet or something and then get the sides tailored (if you are obsessive like I am). If you size up 2 then the collar is pretty deep.

American Apparel Sheer Jersey Loose Crew Summer T-Shirts for $12.25 shipped on eBay

ASOS scoop necks feel a bit too short on me. I'm 5'7" and have a few in XS. The sleeves are especially short, they look like cap sleeves you'd find on women's shirts. I'll post a pic/measurements when I can.

UU T's kinda suck due to the seam that runs down the middle of the back (down your spine) or is it just me that it irritates?
post #15 of 127
UU seam doesnt bother me. I really like the fit on them.

Got a U neck T wang that shows way too much bossom. will post fit pics later mwink[1].gif
