My favorite isn't made anymore, but I still have several ... the Patagonia Mobili-T. Organic cotton with Lycra. I tried a Vitali-T, don't like it nearly as well.

not jcrew for tshirts... their beaters are alright. my mom like jcrew for the more comfortable fit and the lack of sheerness, but they don't retain their shape at all... they lose elasticity so quickly. of the "cheaper" lines, i like old navy much better. i haven't had any problems with shape loss and the fit isn't bad at all...

Hi there,

I actually just started a store that will carry a line of tshirts and accessories. I prefer to do my screen printing on American Apparel, Great Republic or Bella because you get very good quality at a reasonable price. AStees and Alternative apparel are good alternatives.

I've got a couple of tees up so far that you can look at to get an idea of how they fit, (they're very comfortable, btw): http://www.venusadonis.com

There are quite a few good brands out there, but it all depends on what you're looking for and how much you're willing to spend.

As long as the tee shirt is not too short on me and if made of a nice thin, soft cotton , I'm happy.

Versus (i'm not sure that counts as affordable or if they still do the line) or Muji

Its the only thing that they seem to do right, but Burton's t-shirts fit me perfectly, I bought 3 plain last year for 4 each, they havn't faded or fallen apart and the fit is better on me than anything else I've ever worn!

Petit Bateau is really a French kid's clothing store, famous for basics like stripey t's. They've expanded their range for grown ups and have become a French staple. They've got stores all over Europe and I think they have online retailers as well. Search them out on Google.

I personally love Uniqlo coz the quality is great but it's dirt cheap! I have at least 10 shirts from there, long and short sleeved. When I have the cash, C&C is great coz the material is really fine and soft and really good for layering.

No, C&C California. They make really fine cotton T-shirts. Don't think they stock them in HK.

How do American Apparel sizes run in their tees? What's the best t-shirt they make?

James Perse is the only brand i've discovered so far that makes good t-shirts, but the $60 price tag is a bit of a turn off.

American Apparel tees don't seem like anything special IMO...the fabric isn't the greatest, and I think Muji has better value for plain tees. AA hoodies are really nice though.

susie thanks for the correction. I'm just back home in HK over the summer though, I'm normally at Michigan for school from Sept-April!

J Crew used to make nice long sleeve shirts. I have a black one that was purchased about 2 years ago. The color and fit has barely changed after many washes it has endured. However, I went to the store a few weeks ago looking for another shirt in a different color but they changed the fit. It is now much longer and tight. Blah....why???? It used to be so nice and not even expensive ($20)!!!!!
