    i like the basic tees from the banana republic outlet more than the ones in the regular stores. they fit me perfectly and the v is quite shallow.

    If you like the way Abercrombie stuff fits Alt Apparel (post hot wash) might suit your fancy)

    Not to sound like a shill, but I own probably 11 or so black WvG tees and they don't shrink in the wash, keep their shape, and are quite breathable. Other than my occasional graphic tees (MMM, Homage, etc.) I don't really wear any other tees.

    well I don't really like the way Abercrombie tess fit. (they're a bit too tight)
    I just like the durability their cloth have. Man, they really last for a long time.
    some tess I use for my sleeping cloth and literaly wash them everyday and still they hold up..
    so I'm really looking for tees that can hold up like this and doesn't fit too tight...

    but thanks anyway, I will check Alt Apparel out.

    RRL and Unis are 2 brands that make great solid tees that hold up well. Neither is cheap though.

    Bannana Republic fitted. Great fit and quality. If you wait for the right sale you can usually pick them up for just over $10 each with free shipping. I'm 6' 1" so I get tall size for the couple of extra inches in length.

    I'm a skinny 6'1 and wear a xl for abercrombie. xxl is too big tho. didn't know AA was that good so I'll definetly buy some shirts from them

    about the BR shirts, I actually have a few Banana Republic fitted tees and they aren't that good.
    they fit really nice but the quiality is poor. I got the bacon neck after washing them for like the 5th time...[​IMG]

    For basic t-shirts the James Perse shirts are very good.

    i was thinking about this the other day because i have so many band t-shirts that i wear (usually from bands from 10 years ago) and they're all crappy hanes quality, but eventually, it actually molds to you and finally after literally 10 years, they're wearing out. but that's 10 solid years of wear.

    My band made a bunch of t-shirts. I bet you could get a couple wears out of those.

    I'm looking for something as thick as the A&F shirt but without the moose and without the sleeves being cut that short.

    Any recs?

    Are the American Apparrel shirts as thick?
