Debating between classic and vintage.

Why Classic: that "S" fits me better, bigger neck. Why not? Might be see thru.
Why Vintage: thicker fabric. Why not? Not a fan of the looks and small size of the neck. Also, no more XS and S would be quite baggy on me.

Can anyone who owns both chime in? Thanks.
I don't think the classic shirts are really all that see through, unless you get white (which still isn't *that* thin)

I had the same problem with the neckline on the vintage crew. Pat said they came out a little smaller than expected on the first batch but it still won't work for people with larger necks. I don't get the fit of these type of tees, baggy bodies with small necks.

I Iike the fabric though and wish they made the crew in it. The blend is nice but a white 100% cotton tee is still a classic for a reason.

The crew is solid, I wear the grey one all the time.
We're working on a custom 100% Supima fabric in a weight closer to the tri-blend used on Ben's Shirt that will be used in the classic tee silhouette. Stay tuned.

They're both great. Prior to us making the Vintage Long Sleeve I wore the original Long Sleeve Crew contastly. The original is softer, drapes more and is slimmer fitting. The Vintage is more substantial, structured and has a more regular fit. Bridging the gap would be the Long Sleeve in Tri-Blend Grey which has a more structured fabric than the 50% Supima/50% Micromodal blend with the slimmer fit of the original Long Sleeve Crew. I'd personally recommend going true to size in either (not sizing down in the Vintage Long Sleeve)

Thank you for the info. I'm looking into short-sleeve though (just edit that in). Would that change?

Think I'm going to go with classic because of the more "normal neck". Would that one be significantly more see-thru than vintage (esp with many washes over time)?

Got it. I mistakenly thought you were talking about long sleeves. I'd say the same thing regarding the short sleeve versions of both. Each are in the same fabric as their long sleeve counterpart and have the same characteristics. As @Timbaland said, the necks on the Vintage Tees in this run aren't as wide as they were in the samples, but they're by no means super tight. On future runs, they will be wider, but I wouldn't let that dissuade you as they've been hugely popular. The original tees do have a slightly wider neck, by 1/4" across (that's an 1/8" on each side), which may seem wider when coupled with a smaller rib (on the original tees). A number of guys including @turbospartan @j023 and @nsubrmnn have both of the styles you're asking about and can possibly better comment.

The original, if you're just comparing the two would be more "see-thru" (although, in my opinion, they're not that see through) as the Vintage is 100% Supima cotton in a thicker yarn than the original making it more substantial. Over time and with washes (drying them on low) all of my original tees have tightened up making them less see through. If you're looking at original tees, I would definitely pick up Ben's Shirt. It's still one of my favorite tees and I wear one constantly. Our web developer (who does sites for Amiri, Kith, Stamped, etc and has clothes from all of them) emailed me after I sent him Ben's Shirt and told me it was his favorite shirt then bought three more.

Would you have a rough ETA for that?
I'd say roughly six months on this. We're working on developing a lot of things and expanding into new categories, but this is high on the priority list.
