Looking for the best bang for your buck, quality & durable T-Shirts. I've been looking at American Apparel, but the prices seem a bit high.. Any recommendations?

When you say T-shirt, do you mean the ones people wear outside or the ones under shirts?

I have a few Old Navy T-shirts (the type with different color around the neck line and arm holes) that have held up remarkably well. They are beater shirts that I wear when doing yard work. I also wife the floor after they are dirty, before being laundered. After 5+ years of hard wearing and probably 30+ washes/year and high heat drying, they are still going strong with no loose threads/holes or color fading.

Now that's value.

what do you consider expensive? In terms of quality shirts at the lower end AA is pretty cheap. Also H & M, gap, etc. are all about 10-15 a piece. I guess if you really want to go even less you could pop in and see what they have at places like costco, target, wal-mart, etc...

Not undershirts, but casual tee's.

Well, the price is relative to the quality of the product. I'm just not looking to spend $30 per t-shirt.

Banana Republic's have a great hand and last well. Usually buy 2 get 3rd free if i remember. And they are trim-fitting.

I have no idea where you are located, but Uniqlo's "premium cotton" tees are my favorites. I used to wear some Gap Athletic Cut cotton tees, but I like the uniqlo better (and they're cheaper... maybe $15 a pop?)

Oh, that's too bad for the OP... they're got such good stuff. In Japan, there's one ever 100 yards (they're more ubiquitous than the "GAP" here)... but I didn't know how available they were here yet.

Yes, except now as we speak I'm in Cincinnati... so I'd only be able to proxy with the shirts I already own.

you can phone order from the soho uniqlo

also, i really recommend costco's kirkland t-shirts. some costco stuff is crap, others are fantastic. these are fantastic - very thick and durable.
