    Wondering if people could recommend some good cheap pima cotton tee's? I looked at some Jake Agave ones that were really nice but don't want to fork out $150 for a t. I have a few from BR but was wondering if anyone else had any suggestions, or places to buy around the BR price maybe a little more.

    I would recommend the somewhat new trend (for guys at least) of what they call tissue tees... basically very thin, comfortable undershirts that could be worn on their own. Varvatos, JCrew, many others make them.

    American Apparel tees for basics (about $15.)  Three Dots for better quality (although at about 3 to 4 times the price.)  Easy to find on sale (never paid more that $7 for American Apparel, or $12 for Three Dots in pretty basic colors.) James Perse tees are about the same price. Slightly different style (more garment washed styles) but very similar.

    Club Monaco has some decent Ts in my experience, they're usually like $10.

    If you want a terrific t-shirt, experience one from 46West.

    Are there any good online sources for Three Dots? The local shop that carried them went out of business.

    The cheapest pima cotton t-shirts I know are from 2xist. In fact, they have a full pima underwear line. The only bummer is that I think they only have 2 0r 3 colors but the pima quality is fantastic. Oh, they run large so size down.

    I'm wondering the same thing. I can't find them anywhere online (for men)!
