    The J Crew slim small tees fit me spot on though, I must admit. And getting them for around $10 on sale is a fine deal, I'd say

    JCrew slim fit tees are some of the best fitting tees I own. I've had a couple fall apart in the stitching, and the sizing can be all over the place if you order them online. If you can try them on in store they can be a good buy. They are a good fit and they look and feel good. I have more expensive tees that fit well, too - FilMelange, Flat Head, Sunny Sports, Our Legacy, W+H (I live in LA, I like t-shirts). My J.Crew aren't exactly my favorite that I own, but the fit is excellent, and for ubiquitous mall brand tees, they are the best. I like them better than American or Alternative Apparel.

    Actually, yes. Wings+Horns, especially back in the early years, used some very innovative fabrics, which were meant to be super rugged. I have an old Wings+Horns pique tee which is very distinctive, and probably the heaviest tee I've every come across. Same goes with their thermals until about SS2010 The tees and thermals from the past 5 seasons or so, not so much.

    lands end canvas

    $9 shipped. Size M a bit boxy but I am taking account of shrinkage overtime. Really want to return for S. but w/e. Was meant to be worn as an undershirt but it will take a couple of washes to shrink. =\

    OT: for those who wear undershirts do you guys like it skin tight? i am talking about strictly for MC attire.

    I like my undershirt to be pretty tight. If it's on the loser side, I fide that it will move around under my dress shirt throughout the day, especially in the sleeve and waist areas. I buy my normal size but wash in hot water and dry on high, which shrinks them just enough.

    This is, in fact, the best fucking super heavy t-shirt in the universe. I would buy 20 if it came in different colors. Go TTS instead of one up like some ppl do with AA. Wash and dry the crap out of it to get shrinkage out of the way, and you have the perfect super thick tee. It also breathes fairly well too.
