    Lacoste crew or V

    I bought a couple last year and at least on the model I got the cotton is as good as Sea Isle.I believe the cotton is Peru pima but that's in the top long staple category with sea isle and Egyptian long staple pima.

    Gildan. They are solid, heavy-weight (which I prefer), cheap and come in a boatload of colors. I use them mainly for layering. In lighter weight fabric, I like Bobby Jones' dark, rich colors. These are available regularly at a steep discount via their outlet on ebay (regular price $50, on ebay $10 -- they also have similarly good deals on lightweight marino wool sweaters).

    Unless you insist on the dreadful habit of wearing your tee outside your pants, Duluth Trading's Longtails. They will not come out exposing your butt when you bend over. And they aren't expensive, either. Of course if you are one to look down on working class gear . . . [​IMG]

    Gap Deep V - Long enough for my long torso so it doesn't give me a "this use to fit me before I washed it" look.
