    Hi All:

    I am looking to pick up a couple of dressy T's, particulary a black T. I was wondering about RLPurple Label. I own several pieces, but no Ts. How do their Ts fit?  snung or loose?  It means do I get a large or a medium? Any other suggestions for a nice dressy looking black T?

    It would be hard to beat Hanro in quality or apperance.

    I always thought Hanro was more of an undergarmet. It looks good as a dressy T for a casual Friday or night out?

    Yeah - I know - I'm predjudiced and that this is a blatant advertisement. However, there is NO t-shirt that even comes close to a quality comparison with the Zimmerli Pureness MicroModal & Lycra. Certainly not the Hanro division of Jockey. [​IMG] Pureness is made to be worn as outerwear. MicroModal is a relatively new miracle fabric made of 100% cellulose. The fiber is SO fine that 10,000 meters weighs under 1 gram.

    Mr. Kabbaz, You've mentioned those shirts before and I have been thinking abount buying one or two. Are they difficult to care for?

    Can you provide a web address please.

    Why, his own website of course. The link is at the bottom of all his posts. Alex, no finder's fee required. [​IMG] Aside: $95.00 - yikes. Dan

    Are these Kabbaz t-shirts bespoke, MTM or RTW?

    l am after quality RTW t-shirts. To far to travel for bespoke or MTM.

    How much are the Kabbaz t-shirts?
    (l'm sick of paying extroadinary prices for Gucci t-shirts).

    No. Wash warm. Tumble dry no heat or line dry. Wearing one now. Yummmmm.
    I am a Zimmerli distributor. I don't normally offer items here on SF, but I have been so totally enthralled with this Pureness line since it was released last May. I have gotten absolutely nothing but raves (and re-orders) from every client who has tried them. One old, highly regarded member of SF said it best: "It's like wearing a cloud." Thanks amirrorcrackd. ... and no, they are not bespoke. We're just having trouble keeping them in stock. I guess that's because I keep taking them for myself. [​IMG] And there's a new color being released soon: Notte (midnight blue) ... and a thong ... and a tanga ... and a v-neck. Ahhh - life is good. Whatever shall I wear today?

    I own a RLPL t-shirt in white that I purchased for $25 on Bluefly ($95 retail), its very lightweight, and has kept its sheen after a few washes, alas they are now in the insane range of $115-$125 and I really don't know if they are worth it. I like mine, but I hardly use it, opting instead to use several $20 GAP tee's that I purchased for $8.95 each, either way no one but me really can tell the difference.

    Jon.

    Not sure what a "dressy T" is, but I'd recommend James Perse, C&C California, or American Apparel.  My favorite T's are made by Rogan and PDC, but probably not what you're looking for...

    Don't know about RLPL, but I can say that the Hanro T's are very nice; still, I definitely wouldn't wear them as an "outer" garment; for me, the collar sits too low... My favorites are made by Pal Z. -- pricey but nice. If you're not looking to spend that much, I quite like Faconnable makes a T (and I quite like the pocket they put on theirs...).
