Vigorously handscrub them with some caustic soap?

you can't start off with too course of a tee shirt. even my beat up tanks that ive washed a trillion times from hanes don't work..
but say..a basic white men's tee...let it soak in water with soap and softener. remember softener stains, so don't put it directly on it..
then get a bucket with half a bottle of bleach and let it sit in there with the rest as water fo an hour...rinse and dunk back in the soap mixture to get bleach off..then wash regular...

Generra and Theory make nicely broken-in loose Ts. I do have trouble paying $80 for a T-shirt, so I usually pick these up at places like Marshall's or Loehmann's. I still cringe paying $40...

i always believe in fashion,if you got a side that is tight,the other should be loose..so if your wearing skinny jeans,team it up with a loose top and so on.

i actually did a creative move with a top of mine which became a bit too loose,i tied it to show my tummy a bit and it looked nice with jeans

Wait a minute, when was the soft, long, flowy t shirt not around? Maybe it wasn't a verifiable trend, but it's always been popular, and even survived the onslaught the Belly-Button Years. So comfortable, flattering, and chic.

I think it only looks good when you pair it with skinnies, to balance out proportions.

It also looks hot on really skinny guys

yes, this supposedly new trend has been around for a while

i think it makes people look shorter- creates a longer torso and shorter legs... which i hate...

I can agree that it creates a longer torso/ shorter legs, but I love this trend!! I either have to wear a belt overtop, or colourblock it (layer something shorter over the longer shirt). I think this works better for short people like me :p

I love the loose top look, but not too loose and looks even greater with tight fitted pants.

I like the look on a lot of people, but I don't like it on me. I'm built very "hourglass" like, and I just look thick with a looser top.
