    Been wearing Muji, they are nice and thick and the build quality is nice, they are about 5 bucks a piece here, maybe a little more. Unfortunately they're not much better fit wise, the V is way too high and the length is no longer than Uniqlo. I like the fit of AA's standard V neck the best, but the quality is shit. I'd make my own white tees but I'd probably have to make thousands of them, and it's hard to ship something like that.

    there'd only be one color man :p I can't even imagine how many yards of fabric I'd have to make, because I've looked and I know I can't get the quality of tee fabric I'd want for my tee shirts, so it'd have to be custom spec'd.
    I want them to be pretty durable, because I wash my tees after every wearing, sometimes change shirts twice a day. I go through about 40 or 50 white tees a year because that's all I wear. Fit would naturally be pretty long and slim, sleeves not too short but not much longer than an undershirt. Just an ultimate white V-neck.

    Pretty much a pipe dream right now though. I have the manufacturing side for it and there's not much designing involved, just don't have the right fabric because it doesn't exist yet. That, and I'd have to sell them in like, 10 packs to make shipping worth it. No point when shipping costs more than the item itself.

    yeah I know, it's not the most ridiculous idea. It's just a big undertaking and I don't like making runs like that. It'd require other things to happen. At that level of effort I should just start my restaurant idea. :eek:

    I've been wearing Eternals lately, I'm on some sort of amekaji thing, but I normally wear New Standards. Wearing some Petit Standards now though, since my New Standards are hanging up to dry :eek:

    White toj v neck? I'll take twenty. The only ones I can find that work kinda well are Muji ones, and even they could be slimmed up.

    You should do it up like the taco place I went to in Mobara: Authentic Mexican style with pictures of Native Americans all over the place. The more exotically North American the better!

    toj v neck 10 pack? make it an optional add-on for jacket orders and ship together. scale shipping costs up accordingly based on quantity if needed.

    you know some folks would cop 10, 20, or more packs and resell on b&s. do want, when you find the right material.

    that's a pretty good idea actually.

    The guy who mentioned that IKEA has free measuring tapes though - bloody genius, even I didn't remember that. Go get meatballs and a measuring tape, it'll be like $2 out the door.
