    Jockey seems to be decent, though not especially long for us taller guys. They do have tall sizes, but unfortunately those only start at Large and would be too big for me.

    Can anyone recommend an inexpensive brand that makes tall enough Mediums?



    How tall are you? I am 5'11 and have a slightly long torso and prefer longer tees. The JC Penney ones I mentioned earlier were perfect but they do have talls and extra talls if needed.

    In the mid 90's and before I used to buy Calvin Klein at TJ Maxx, a number of them are still with me---the quality was pretty good and the fit slim. These days I'm trying to switch over to organic cotton that I know isn't sweatshop made. For briefs I like

    but I haven't found a good source for undershirts. I may try Patagonia, but they don't make a v-neck.

    I like Jockey undershirts (crew neck Ts). They use long staple cotton that doesn't pill, and the collar bands stay flat for the life of the shirt.

    Sounds like you are very price conscious. I bought some Neiman Marcus brand at Last Call early this year that I thought were great!!!......until I bought some Zimmerli.

    So you need to match your pocketbook and your desires. Zimmerli is very top of the line, the others are good and are generally very good buys at their price point.

    I love Jockey undershirts, but only the old ones with tags. The new tagless ones have a larger neck, and the collar bands roll (at least in my experience). Problem is, I can't find the old style anymore.

    The last dozen I bought were the new "tagless" style. I've been wearing these for about six months without any problems with the collars rolling.
