    Here's a question...
    Do you reserve your costlier tee shirts for special occasions, or do you wear them for most situations, maybe even athletic activity?

    I wear them as if they WEREN'T high end t's

    nothing is lamer then getting a frivolously expensive piece of clothing and then treating it like its a princess. wear it out, roll around in the dirt, and use it for a post-coital rag. its the only way.

    Party-pooper response: I don't wear any frankly; typically they are a waste of money to my eyes. The law of diminishing returns kicks in VERY quickly with t-shirts.

    Not sure what you mean high end, I wear a lot of worn graphic t's by LA designers the most expensive of which is around 80 bucks before discount from revolveclothing.com. Nothing by versace, d&g or dior though.

    I cringe any time I see someone wearing a "designer" t-shirt that looks like they paid more than $30 for. They just look gay, guys. Asians and greasy Argentines can get away with it, but they're gay on anyone else.

    Actually, IIRC, my one experience with a princess involved a lot of rolling around in the dirt [​IMG] [​IMG].

    i will not pay more than $30, eh and sometimes that can inflate to $40 but its rare.

    i mean seriously i've seen some awesome one of a kind designs that were $20 so i think it ridiculous to pay anything more.

    i do handwash my more expensive ones though, and only partially dry them in the dryer. after i just let them air dry.
