    Need recommendations for some tees that aren't going to be sitting at my belt line after I do a cold wash/tumble dry. Tees are the most frustrating aspect of often being being in between sizes. Larges are usually too big everywhere, while a medium fits well until I wash it, at which point, it turns into a bro tee.

    From observing and limited hands-on experience, it seems like a lot of the brands that offer tees with a bit of a drape are my best bet. Those are usually longer in the body, but still more fitted and the arms don't cling in a way that looks like I'm desperately trying to sell tickets to the gun show.

    Still looking for a couple brands to try out and perhaps, disclaimers of particular brands to avoid.

    I have the OV Cure tee that I got on sale. I haven't taken the tag off, though, since I'm not completely sold on the over-sized cut. It does seem to drape in a way that the hem stacks unless you actually pull the hem down.

    I should also mention I don't really care for crew necks. I'll try pretty much any other type of neck, though.

    I'm not opposed to Uniqlo and H&M-level shit, for the record. I just want something that isn't going to wither away after I clean it, which seems to happen with the less expensive choices.

    Hence the appeal of shit like OV, where the neckline already looks like you drunkenly took shears to them.

    Put your t shirts in the freezer to get rid of the stink and cold soak when that doesn't work.

    I like my cure tees even though I'm swimming in the XS. I've found that layering two cure tees over one another makes a dramatic difference in how much better it fit.

    Geller has some nice tees as well that you can find for cheap during sales.

    the WAYWT on SZ is offensively, staggeringly good and the level of discussion is offensively, staggeringly pretentious and unreadable.

    I dunno, man, the shoes are clownishly exaggerated in most of the fits, it seems to me. Ronald McDonald as Goth Ninja. I am starting to love the Yohji wearing Wire Artist, though.

    I've stocked up on Rxmance tees. They pop up on Gilt for $25 in black and white and they have a nice v-neck
    People seem to assume its some dumbass skate brand or something, but it isn't
    Actually I don't know what the hell it is, but their tees are nice
    They're pretty long and soft, but from my experience with the XS, some people might find that they run a bit small

    I wish we had more (any) places around here that stocked even the mid-tier skate-type brands (I don't know if I just totally made up that category), because I've seen quite a few tees and tanks from these brands that look worthwhile, but I don't know if that would translate once they're not inside my computer monitor.
