Any recs for Breton style shirts with a crew neck? Got a pull up bar for the pandemic and now my boat necks sit funny.
If you do a search on eBay for "telnyashka," you'll find crewneck Breton shirts. They're a style of Russian undershirt and can be had for like $15.

Note that some of them have a high neckline.

Are these not usually a thin, almost glossy material? I'm looking for the coarser, stouter cotton.
Ah yea, they're not coarse. More of a t-shirt material.

I can't think of who has a crewneck right now in that coarser material. I've seen them in the past from APC and Ralph Lauren, but nothing shows up on their site right now.

I have an Armor Lux breton that fits that description(crew neck, thick cotton) from some years back. I'm not sure if they still have that particular model anymore, but worth looking
