Linen t-shirts

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for t-shirts in linen (either 100% or linen / cotton blend). Has anyone ever seen anything similar to what I'm looking for? Jon.

I doubt it. They probably wouldn't make the time to pre-wash the linen(which usually shrinks quite a bit), and unless the linen were blended with lycra, it likely wouln't be elastic enough to pull over your head.

I just bought this on a whim. 25% linen and rayon for the rest. It should come tomorrow.

Nice looking Ted Baker t-shirt. I have wondered about the quality of Ted Baker, as the shirts certainly have nice looking fabrics. Just about the only place I see Ted Baker though is at Filene's Basement.

Although they look nice, they shrink horribly when washed; in odd directions the length of the shirt shrank to comical proportions. I learned about Ted Baker the hard way, since my wallet was $98 lighter and I was left none the wiser. Jon.

Two or three years ago, Holt Renfrew sold house-brand linen/silk pocket t-shirts in great colors - seafoam green, etc. They were quite fitted and extremely comfortable, with a nice, slightly rough texture. Unfortunately, I wore the two I had so much that they developed holes. Full retail on them was around US$60. I haven't seen them since.

I purchased a linen t-shirt from SteinMart a few months ago.  It was made by Polo Ralph Lauren 100% linen.  It feels wonderful and has worn fairly well.  The collar is not as elastic as my cotton shirts but I don't think it was designed that way.  I paid about $10 but the Polo price tag states that it retails at $89 (not worth it at that price or at least for me).  It is extremely soft and breathes very well.  I hand wash it and dry it flat like a sweater. So needless to say I don't treat it like other t-shirts so I'm not sure how it would hold up under more normal conditions. I do wear it about once a week though.
