    If only...scrawny4life. :confused:

    I picked up an ASOS 3/4 sleeve scoop-neck, sized up one to large. I'm glad I sized up; I'm pretty sure a medium would be too small in the shoulders, and an open-necked shirt with narrow shoulders makes it look like you stole your GFs shirt, IMO. It's a little shorter and a hair boxier than it ideally would be. I'm gonna give it a cold wash and try to stretch the body lengthwise a little before I wear it.

    Also, it's cold enough here that I'm still wearing v-neck + henley + flannel + cardigan or jacket every day. :(

    Anyone know a tee that is more in the relaxed and lengthy side? Trying to establish that tapering effect from shirt to skinny jeans.

    considering buying this tee. I know it's not traditionally slutty but the rolled sleeves exude a slutty look for me.

    You gotta show at least a little collarbone for a tee to be slutty.

    Can anyone provide measurements for the AA Sheer Jersey Loose Crew? The Fine Jersey shirts I've tried were ridiculous (small was skintight; medium was like a tent) and I don't want to be stuck with a bunch of shirts I can't wear.

    A provides measurements for most items. Don't know how accurate they are though. Sometimes there's even variations within the same size.

    *THREAD BUMP*

    Hey guys,

    I'm in a pickle. I got a delivery of Grana's scoop neck in size M (Thanks for the proxy @notwithit), I suspected they will be too large, and they were. I tried to shrink them by washing all in warm-hot water, amazingly enough, they all stretched and are now very big to the point they look ridiculous. Can't return them as I chatted to Grana and they said they can't do anything if it wasn't washed according to label. I recently also picked up a few BLK DNM t shirt 3 in S, which were a perfect fit, but as mentioned here, they all shrunk and are now quite tight.

    I really am looking for a nice set of 4-5 scoop neck t shirts, at a decent price. I don't want to spend another $200 on 4 BLK DNM 3's or $90 on a single Acne limit :/

    I saw you guys posted the ASOS scoop necks here. How's the quality? Obviously I don't expect anything spectacular, but they look nice and very cheap, would they stand to wear? I usually tend to hand wash t shirts because they are so prone to being misshaped and twisted in the washing machine, and then just hang dry.

    If there are any more recommendations of scoop neck t shirts brands I'd love to hear it. As said here before, finding the perfect t shirt is the most annoying thing...

    Thanks.

    I bought a bunch of ASOS scoop neck tees a while back and they suck. THe sizing was way off (super tight) and also too slutty, and that´s saying something for someone like me. One I kept, plain white one is alright I guess. They were super cheap but even at that price not worth it.
    I checked the site just now and they look decent enough on the models, but so did the ones I bought more than a year ago. Very deceiving.

    Yeah that's why I am always very cautious about their stuff, and usually don't fall to the temptation of buying them. I guess the search continues.

    Hey guys,

    FYI, if any of you are planning on getting an Acne Limit T anytime soon, you should know the Acne are discontinuing them and this is the last season they will be available. Final pieces are available on the Acne website and Mr Porter if you are in need of 1. I copped up 3 today for a reasonable price at Acne store in London, managed to get 20% off from the seller...

    P.S.

    I have four pieces of the T shirt 3, and I just tried to hand wash them and stretch a bit before hanging to dry, what do you know, it worked. They now fit way better, the fabric has some flexibility so just cold wash them and then stretch the side seams and shoulders and you should be fine. The neckline is also very soft and loose, a couple of slides with your hands will make it wider and much more comfortable instantly.

    Haha, totally forgot about this thread.

    Here's one I tried out that isn't too bad: https://www.dstldjeans.com/products/cotton-modern-crew-neck-tee-in-smoke

    The neck isn't too deep, but I found that sizing up one was a pretty good fit overall. Not bad for $20. I tried the same one in charcoal, though, and somehow it seemed to fit really differently.

    A couple of colors of the AA sexuali-tee are on sale for $17 plus an extra 20% off with code 20NOW: http://store.americanapparel.net/viscose-sexuali-tee_rsavc400r

    I also found an H&M shirt with a neckline so wide it barely stayed on my shoulders, but I don't see it online.

    First one looks cool, any info on the brand/quality etc?

    That AA is mega slutty, I think the neckline is too wide...

    I don't know much about DSLTD other than that they claim to be another one of those brands bringing designer-quality clothes to the masses at sub-retail prices, that whole game. The one I have has held up decently to a few washes and wears, though. If they got more colors there's a decent chance I'd buy more.

    AA tee definitely needs to be layered over a tank or something, and it's probably better for people with relatively broader shoulders.

    I just ordered 2 from DSLTD, for $20 down from $70, seems like a solid deal, got the Smoke and the Charcoal, they look cool, thanks.

    Ok, I need to stop buying T shirts :)
