Hello everyone,

I have been on a quest the past few months trying to find the "perfect" basic t-shirt. Criteria is fabric, details, fit, how well they wear/tear/wash and company history/integrity.
So far I have found three brands that I think are oustanding, but wondered if you guys had any inputs?
What are your favourite brands? And how you define the perfect t-shirt.

Here are the three that I love the most, but I am open to suggestions :)

http://elsk.com/ (very cool setup and quality that last. Plus it is being made in really small qty's
http://www.sunspel.com/ (very comfortable, but looses quite a lot of the soft touch after washing)
http://www.merz-schwanen.com/en/ (great lasting quality)

When I go around looking at the highstreet brands, I find it interesting how many of them that are just trying to cut corners on their production and not pay enough attention to the details in their garments.

Hope you guys have some valid inputs.....
