Hi. I am looking for white t-shirts that are
1.) thick enough/substantiale thickness,
2.) that don't have really small necks,
3.) that are long enough(I'm 6'3"),
4.) and that don't have sleeves that nearly go down to ones forearm opposite to the white t-shirts that Stafford made for example.
I have found one white t-shirt by Abercrombie and Fitch that was nearly perfect, but their XL was like a large, and they don't carry XXL. I really appreciate it so much. This is my last chance.

I was going to suggest the Stafford tall t-shirts until I got to #4. I'm happy with the ones I got a couple weeks ago, but I too will need some shorter sleeves when the weather warms and I start wearing short sleeve shirts again (I wear undershirts under everything).

I've also recently purchased some shirts from ribbedtee.com. Nice shirts, but not nearly as thick as the Stafford shirts, so I don't know if they'd fit your bill either. Sleeves are definitely short enough. I got the enhanced fit extra long shirts from their clearance section.

The best t-shirts I have found are from Uniqlo. The fit is wonderful and they cost about $5 a piece.

I'm looking for an undershirt that's almost the very opposite, at least in the sleeves. I'm looking for one that's thin, clings tight to the arm, and goes down to the elbow.

Why? I can't stand the obvious "undershirt line" that forms mid-bicep with my usual undershirts. I find it only slightly less distracting than the visible panty line.

I know I know. This is a big reason why so many of you refuse to wear undershirts. I read that thread. I tried to go without. Perhaps it's the chemistry of my perspiration. Perhaps it's because I prefer shirts that are tight in the sleeves with super-high armholes. Whatever the reason, I quickly tired of having to scrub the yellow pit stains after each wear and wondering if one day such stains might not come out of a favorite shirt. So, I find myself among that unfortunate few that must wear underwear.

And I detest that visible undershirt sleeve bulge. And I wish I didn't have to go through the contortions of tucking a thick, wide-sleeved, low-armhole undershirt under a sleek, fitted shirt. Surely... there is a solution?

I'm pretty happy with the Kirkland undershirts from Costco. They're not super slim, but they're OK in that department, and they're very substantial and cheap.
