As someone who only wears t-shirts for the purpose of protection my shirts from stains, how complicated is this really?

First of all I would never pay for a brand, but the quality and craft. It's common knowledge that Armani has taken a nose-dive in terms of quality since their success in the 80s and never recovered.

I will argue that: NO COTTON T-SHIRT IS WORTH ABOVE $200 (in terms of value for money). (unless signed by a famous person, so you can sell it later as an investment).

As mentioned further up, Orlebar Brown is legit.

What would it be?
Sunspel, John Smedley, Novila etc. There are lot's of established firms that produce premium products based on quality and not a designer name.

If they are under shirts, the companies I have listed in the recent underwear thread are ideal.

I love Sunspel. I’m a fat pig, so I’ve noticed they fit smaller than non European brands, but the quality is top notch.

The thing about these thin t-shirts is that they're hard to wash. Fabric can get distorted in the washing machine, so you have to do a gentle hand wash. I have the Orlebar Brown shirt. Felt good the first and second time I wore it. Then just became too much of a hassle to press and clean correctly.
