    Man people getting excited at getting suede CPs for $250 after multiple coupon stacking.

    Can't wait to see what the retail on Achilles will be in a few years.

    Something that is soft, but also fairly sturdy, Flat lock stitching under the arms and along the sideseam is always good. Tees seem to nearly always distintegrate there first, because there is more friction there, and also because the design is inherently poor. There is a lot of stress right at the armpit, and it all hinges on, pretty literally, a single point...

    Ugh, I think I'm getting to that stagnant clothing stage again, where I take everything I own for granted and can only come up with the same 3 outfits to wear every time I leave the house


    Doesn't help that summer is coming up and I'm basically just a human reservoir of sweat

    I think I've said this before, but in comparison to the American Apparel Summer shirt (or whatever it's called), this would be my perfect t-shirt:
    - not as deep, slightly wider neckopening
    - less drapy/seethrough fabric, ie sturdier but still lightweight
    - about same length, it's impossible to find any non-drapey tees that are longer than "normal" models
    - less slim

    (possible john elliot would fit ^this nicely, but it's too expensive even without shipping for something I'm not more certain of)

    Great customer service but I had no idea Cartier will not under any circumstances give out tracking info on online orders (for security reasons they say). I don't think Ive ever experienced this even on my most expensive purchases which were suits and UPS just laid them by my door like always...

    all good suggestions guys thanks, and thanks for the web ideas, fok i agree with you

    no idea on timeline as I haven't started but you layer with tees all the time (well at least I do unless wearing a dress shirt)

    i've got an idea of what I want to do

    I would also consider 50/50 blends. When I did more of this stuff, I came across a company (they only do B2B) called New Line Apparel (NLA), which makes a 50/50 cotton poly blend tee that is incredibly resilient, but also very lightweight and soft. Polyester gives a lot of strength for not a lot of weight, and both the hand and the drape of the fabric was really nice. Cotton poly also allows you to get that heathered effect that we were looking for at the time.

    i feel like, tons of SF members were in college when CPs retailed for $325 and went on sale for like <$150 (certainliy <$200)...

    now that we all make money all this shit is so expensive :(, even then $250 today is easier on the wallet for me than $150 was in college

    where did all the poor people go?

    Seems you could increase the cotton in that blend and get a more "natural" feel, but still retain much of the benifits from the poly... or, does the curve drop quickly?

    I still say American apparel tri blends are the best shirts
    Have some going on four years now and they still hold up perfectly. Soft feel and nice drape, good length

    I've recently gotten into a Japanese brand of t-shirts called Barns. Loopwheeled, uniquely curved chest pocket, more natural feeling/ rougher yarns, interesting subtle textures, and very short, trim vintagey cuts. Much more interesting in texture than the mass produced Hanes stuff I have, and much more stout than American Apparel. I think it looks good with the kind of stuff I often wear these days (jeans, leather jackets, and the like).

    Cotton tees, for me, no matter the quality, always end up billowing around the bottom hem after a year or so of wear. I like a synthetic blend for extra strength

    In other news, tried on LUC pants for the first time today, brilliant cut. Want to find a pair of these that fit slightly better

    (By the way, the t-shirt in this pic is a three year old AA tri-blend that's been washed at least 50 times)
