This is a bit of a rant, and also a plea for help!
I want to buy a bunch of plain crewneck tees for myself, black and/or white.
I'm a bit picky when it comes to undershirts. I have a couple black ones from H&M, and the price is great (under 7$), but they shrink awkwardly and I can't always remember not to put them through the dryer.
The collars also sorta lose their "integrity" they flop around a bit instead of staying flat like when I bought them.
I see a lot of good deals at places like Winners and Marshalls for "good brand" multipacks, but Its hard since a CK medium looks to be like an H&M L or XL even, and usually you can't try them on since their they are sealed, and sorta considered underwear. Even in standalone brand names stores, like Banana Rep. they are often packaged.
Sometimes even brand new tees are all linty and pilled looking ( note: I wear a lot of plain black tees so this is why they prob appear linty, since black shows lint so easily), and I also worry about durability - I have a plain black tee from Uniqlo and it just doesnt feel nice after washing, and looks pilly and linty all the time.
Also with white tees - they are often made pretty of pretty thin material which isn't very flattering when worn as clothing (not Marlon Brando, sorry!)
So in summary I'm looking for
- Durable, thicker material (doesn't have to be 100% cotton,)
- Crew neck
- Cut: not too baggy, a little slim is fine but not tight or super-slim fitting!
- Plain black or plain white
- can work as an undershirt, but works equally well as a simple component of an outfit, or standalone shirt
So...please share your experiences with plain tees!
