    question to some of the cooler set among the forum...where can i order really cool t-shirts online? I like to buy clothes that most others can find locally in my area, so I don't get Polo, Tommy, etc. any recommendations? So far, I've only bought Gucci and Dolce and Gabbana black ts. Maybe there is a place to get diesel, dries van noten, helmut lang, or other cool ts?

    In that(Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Diesel, Helmut Lang) price range I really like Zimmerli; I also like the much less expensive 2xist. My usual t-shirt is a $3-$6(don't remember exactly) Hanes Beefy cotton t-shirts from http://www.txshirts.com, which does printed shirts but also sells the shirts unprinted. They also have polos(~$7-$10), sweatshirts and sweatpants, hats and shorts at wholesale prices, without us having to buy wholesale quantities.

    Personally, I like Upper Playground graphic tees (www.upperplayground.com). For basic styles that are suitable for throwing around football in, but will set you apart from the guys wearing chinos and vendor t-shirts, try James Perse, go to www.goclothing.com or eluxury (smaller selection.) Bluefly has lots of discounted Diesel. If you want to go designer, try the t-shirts on www.aloharag.com (deeply indebted to the forum member who posted this site) which has a lot of current season Junya Watanabe (love his collaboration with Lewis Leathers) and Margiela stuff. And of course, surf around on Yoox for interesting things. T-shirts are pretty cheap, so you can experiment.

    checkout American Apparel for plain sweaters, tshirts etc. The cut is good and the cotton is even better

    Check out some of the stuff from Go Clothing. Also, Gsus industries make some interesting, yet decidedly fashion-forward stuff. One more thing, I would definitely advise against Diesel. I've got about 8 of their t-shirts and they're degrading quickly. Definitely nothing as good as Gucci or Dolce and Gabbana.

    Well it depends on what exactly you want, is it just plain t's or printed t's? For plain shirts you might as well stick with the labels you're already buying, though you could also opt for Hanro, Pearse, 3 Dots, Margiela, or a store's brand (Saks, Neimans). If it is the printed style then you should let us known what your style is (unless you don't really know and just want to see what options are out there). It seems that, as with jeans, every designer also has a t-shirt line out there. To see the designer's take on the tee I would check out www.firstview.com and search through their archives. There is also a swelling underground of labels that just specialize in t's and sportswear which are way too numerous to list. Www.digitalgravel.com is a good site to find out about more urban leaning companies on this side of the coast. I find some of the shirts by Rabbit and Redtree, www.rabbitandredtree.com, to be amusing (the tank and Lambo ones). Also a good resource to more emerging labels is www.beinghunted.com., though they focus on other areas of fashion (sneakerpimps) and indie arts/artists too. There is www.2kshirts.com for artist driven versions. London, the EU, and Japan are now a hotbed for creative t-shirt design, especially if you like the idea of really, REALLY limited edition items. You should check for the likes of One True Saxon, FAKE London, Bape/A Bathing Ape, Supreme, Burro, Silas, Alabama, Burn & Violet, SSURS, Rake, Undercover, Recon, Defacto Deathcamp, Buddhist Punk, Maharishi, Keanan Duffy, Red Ear, and on, and on. If you punch some of these into Google you should find online dealers, or at least pics. Finally you could use the tried and true method of just wandering out to your local Salvation Army or Goodwill and search for some great vintage finds that may lurk within. If that bothers you I hear that there are some stores up in NYC, and elsewhere, that will do retro iron-on prints upon new blank t's. Happy hunting. . . P.S. Speaking of t's, and Dolce & Gabbana, I'm really liking their plain one's with the military rank sewn on the left sleeve. It's simple yet stylish, the combination all one needs. These catch anyone else's eye?

    Some of the best and most idiosyncratic and fashion bending tees are being made by Aussie designers (with prices similar to D&G et al). They usually only come in less than 100 peices and can be hand made and ordered. Look for names like tsubi, Roy, ditch, XYZ, pr*.
