Slightly wide necked t-shirts

    Hey guys. I got some wider necked t-shirts from Zara recently. I really prefer them to the ordinary crew necks that are tight around the neck. They are the "deluxe cotton" edition shirts shown here:

    In person they are a bit wider necked than that. Nothing crazy, but wide enough to show the traps and some chest.

    Problem is that, like most Zara clothes in my experience, they do not last longer than 6 months. I have to get all of my shirts hemmed and, if I'm going to invest in them, I want them to last at least a couple years. Armani Exchange actually has very nice quality t-shirts, but they are tight on the neck.

    Can you recommend any brands that carry something similar that is more durable?

    Thanks.

    Check out Merz B. Schwann. Here is one shop that carries them http://www.nomanwalksalone.com/index.php/makers/makersinfo/view/id/149/. Union Made has a good selection too http://unionmadegoods.com/brands/merz-b-schwanen/

    Thanks for the advice. But any cheaper options guys?

    I wouldn't spend more than $30 on a t-shirt. $40 maybe if it was excellent quality, perfect fit, etc.

    I have only a few posts in 8 years. I'm nowhere near as hardcore as you guys :) :slayer:

    Not sure...maybe Uniqlo carries some. If not, Unionmade has good sales every now and then so keep a lookout.

    I personally swear by alternative apparel tees. Might be worth looking there.

    I guess Alternative Apparel doesn't ship internationally. I'm from Canada. Bummer. They have some nice stuff and, besides button downs, I pretty much just wear blank t-shirts.

    That's awesome. Thanks.

    For anyone else, it looks like Uniqlo doesn't ship to Canada either.
