    the neckline on vtb is also too tight
    silent on sale/b&s is my rec, though the newer ones seem to have a stupid black square (logo?) at the hem

    Thanks for the recs.
    Yeah I've been thinking about trying Silent, but the 75-95 of the JE and AW seemed bad enough for T's, then again I will be wearing T's at least 5 days a week.
    I've never gotten a good fit with Uniqlo, I ordered a bunch a few weeks ago. Supima, airism, heatech.... multiple sizes, after washing...nothing fit good. The AA Tri-blends are OK but still not a loose neck.
    Has anybody tried the AW low necks? Found a few in what I would think are my size on sale, they are the silk/rayon blends though and I'm wondering how sheer the white is.

    I prefer the JE+Co curve u-necks to the mercer tees.

    BLK DNM shirts aren't super-nice, but you can find them on sale for < $30. They shrink a bunch, so you might want to size up.


    You mean these ones? http://store.americanapparel.net/viscose-sexuali-tee_rsavc400r

    On sale for $17 a pop right now.

    I feel like the AW were $65 a few years ago, standard is $80 now with the slub rayon ones at $95 (but I think they've only been around like 2 years).

    @notwithit I like the U-necks, the neck is perfect, that's the level of scoop i'm looking for and the T by AW ones seem pretty similar. I acutally have 3 of the JE U neck but the hem gets real wavy for lack of a better word. Maybe they are better now? Mine are all from their first release ~2 years ago and I know they updated some things. The mercer length seems like it would be good for somebody 6'2", the split hem makes me think it wouldn't bunch of up get the wave like the u neck, and the neck is apparently looser than a standard crewneck.

    The neck on the AA Viscose is too much for me, and they are apparently "ultra-sheer".

    Navigability is a problem, but I also think that city centers tend to cater to the masses (which here seem to be middle aged tech dudes in polos and blazers) who generally aren't interested in and are sometimes truly afraid of authentic foreign foods. You have to head out to the suburbs to find the Chinese communities who want the Chinese food just like it is in China.

    That may be true of other cities, but it is not true of Toronto. The "cool" parts of town are all in downtown Toronto, and most of the decent restaurants are similarly located. The Chinese food right downtown is not "inauthentic" either. It's just older style. The food that you get in Toronto's Chinatown is dominated by an older, less refined, style, brought over by the earlier, less affluent, wave of immigrants. Post 1997, the Chinese that came had more money (mostly the equivalent of the middle aged tech dudes you talk about), and businesses sprung up to serve them. It's a food centered culture, which is really different from American culture, so even your guy who has no interest in anything else usually likes, and knows, good food.

    prosperity dumpling is overrated and they're only popular because they're dirt cheap.
