T-Shirts

Do you have a favorite place to get t-shirts from? I've switched to synthetic, bamboo or very light cotton for more comfort but finding a really good shirt is hard. Any recommendations?

Duluth Trading. But probably not the type of shirt you are looking for.

I like Gildan shirts, but no advice on where to purchase, just my observation

Strictly cotton people here, but for lightweight cotton, Tommy Bahama has been good lately... but definitely thru their outlet division, and waiting for good sale. We've also had some good luck at Ross, Marshalls, TJ Maxx, etc., w/ one off's of various brands that have showed up from time to time. Banana Republic can also be good, but their sales vary by location. As big notes, Gildan makes decent shirts, but I've found their medium and heavier weight shirts for men are better, while their lighter weight women's shirts seem to flow better than their men's counterparts.

For plain white men's crew necks, the Costco/Kirkland Signature, made by Fruit of the Loom, are exceptional. Heavier weight than basic T shirts.

My mom got me some from Dillard's. They are pretty nice- all cotton, though.

Tshirts are OOS today, but look comfortable.

I still check ocean state job lot maybe once a month. They've had heavy weight carhartt in the past, but it's one of those stores whose inventory is not consistent and is seasonable. For pocket T.

For plain white tees Costco/BJs house brands are good enough for me, but I'm more of a Polo/button down short sleeved shirt and chinos kinda guy.

I wear white T's in the summer for coolness and comfort..if you really want comfort like you mightn't notn't haven't experienced get some Muji T's I've gone through most of the off the shelf stuff in the U.S...Muji T's slay them all..incredible comfort, nice cut and long lasting, high quality cotton..I don't wear anything else n'more

Muji opened their first store in the USA in the mid 2000's..great store, beautiful minimal product design..love this stuff..can order online..they ARE more expensive but for me totally worth it..i don't think about now..

Yes, I bought a bunch there over a year ago that were heavy duty long sleeve and have been great. Four bucks, iirc.

I have been buying my t-shirts from Macy's for years. I only buy cotton and I find that I pretty much wear them every day.

Years ago, I bought, as I always have, a dozen of the Macy's own Alfani brand cotton tees. They were made in Japan and they had lasted for ten years in good condition until I finally gave them away because they no longer fit after I lost 70 pounds. What I loved about those shirts was that they were made more like a sweater, with gathered sleeves and waist bands. Because of the construction, the collars remained tight to my neck without sagging through years of laundering. The fabric was much heftier than any I have ever seen since.

Sadly, I haven't found any tees of that quality, since that time.

Unfortunately, with many products, they are made to a price point, instead of the customer having an idea of the quality they needed, and paying what they had to to get that quality.

"wife beaters" are tank tops. Plain and simple. Not T-shirts in any way, shape or form.

George's dad on Seinfeld, as well as Kramer, for instance.

Kind of a southern thing I think.
