Given the costs of that route you may be better off getting shirts made to measure. Any opinion on Mohan tailors? A buddy of mine just recommended them. For me the best fitting are: Liquidus , Apr 6, Trompe le Monde , Apr 7, Recoil , Apr 7, Master-Classter , Apr 7, My best options have been Kent Wang with darts and bespoke.
I also sent in one of my bespoke shirts to Modern Tailor to have replicated with a bunch of shirts mixed success with. You must log in or sign up to reply here. Share This Page Tweet.

Naw, they're actually fairly slim. Not as slim as a Mossimo but they're like a slim-cut version of a really nice hanes tee. I've yet to get my hands on one, hopefully this summer that'll change.
Yeah, once March hits I should start having paychecks rolling in again, and with the warmer weather it'd make sense to have some of these be my first purchase.
I heard they're hard to find though, at least now. Maybe places will restock for the summer. I meant that as in owning one, but yes you are technically right that my hands got on one lol. I honestly forgot I did. I learned about this too late in life to save some of my favorites shirts from crusty pit syndrome. I don't ever use the anti-persperant anymore.
Now that I switched over, anytime I use it its like a desert in my armpit. Indigo and Cotton is a stockist that has some. Banana Republic's Pima Cotton Tee. I have tried every basic T-shirt from every popular brand there is, and nothing is as good. Pima cotton in general is just so much better than regular cotton.
I have a long sleeve pima v neck from Uniqlo. Yeah, that's my only problem with them. I'm about 6'1" and the regular size gets really short after a few washes. I have a problem with the price of clothes. I assume most of the clothes on sale are not sold with a loss, though I am not sure. Which makes all clothes overpriced. Your assumptions are correct. These stores, like many others J. Crew also comes to mind move most of their product and make most of their profit through sales. Their business model does not intend for people to pay full price.
You're being ripped off if you do, generally. We always have fucking sales, and i feel the wrath when I close the god damn store. I work out and am fairly built, and nothing fits me as well as the BR Pima tees. Trim but not too tight. Not sure if they're as good for other body types, but try em out if you're jacked: Norse Store has a sale right now, and those T-shirts are pretty nice. My phone showed the dollar sign, does the kronor use the same symbol?
Or did my phone just fuck up when loading the page? Google told me that there is two, separate American Apparel companies. One of which is the company OP speaks of, the other a military coat and pant surplus. It only applies if someone files a compliant. It is usually not enforced if the two companies are in different markets, as is the case here. They are all still in my closet and I wear one of them almost every day.
And by the second year if I stretch them too much putting them on, they will rip. AA shirts are made more cheaply by using a tube of fabric So the fit isn't as precise. The collars don't deform. They actually get noticeably softer after about the 2nd year.
J crew shirts get thinner after the 1st year and continue to do so You should look up Pistol Lake out of LA. They might have what your looking for. Looks like there's a lot of sleeve flare: I think that photo is an unfortunate example. The others for the v-neck aren't so pronounced.
I wear a medium from them with no complaints. I did find the larges to be too boxy and loose for a skinny guy. I believe they were made for guys with muscles and shit. I'm looking to get some new white ts and personalize them a little. Do you have any experience with Pistol Lake ts? The material of Pistol Lake's T is a bit heavier, also seems in my experience to be a bit more durable. Though I don't have any experience with Everlane so I can't say for sure. But I agree with sageofdata, they are a bit more heavier, soft and durable than my other tees.
How has no one mentioned Wolf vs Goat? I don't doubt the quality of these shirts, but I'm not a fan of their color selection. The colors seem to be a bit generic to me, but what do I know. They also shortened the cut recently, which makes them a bit worse, and from experience I can say that they start pilling after just one or two washes. That being said, they USED to be the best tee you could get for the price.
Maybe not so much any longer. I'm 6'2 and wear a 44L. I'm JUST this side of too tall for some their stuff. The sleeves on their button downs are at an awkward length for me, where Monkey Arms are way too long but regular sleeves run a tad short.
Likewise, I'm disproportionately torso. So their body length has always been a bit short for me. I'm not wild to hear that Mauro is cutting length from the tee shirts. How are you judging the quality of the materials just from glancing at them on the internet? I would believe you if you had any evidence, but you're clearly just guessing. By the way, here is a review of the shirt which basically refutes everything you said.
It is a thin tee for sure, but that was the purpose and aesthetic. These are quite expensive but they are great fitting shirts. Levi's vintage 's sportswear. I wish there was a cheaper alternative. I love the 50's style fit but the only cheap shirt I ever found that fit that way was an old plain Armani Exchange shirt. I believe Velva Sheen has a similar fit but even those are a tad pricey. Gustin recently started offering t-shirts.
No reviews on them yet, but I have heard almost no bad things about anything Gustin sells. Something that I haven't seen mentioned around here are Apolis tees. In this photo, it looks like hugs the bicep: In this one, it looks comically huge: True, but he's still pretty slim. You'd need some HUGE guns to fill out the sleeves on the second one. I have tiny arms working on it, though!
They kind of hang down so the silhouette is a lot slimmer. As for length, they hit me perfectly mid-bicep. How would you all see outlier in this category? Very expensive price point and a different material but I've only heard good things for high end t's. Great fit for me. Merino is nice and soft, but durable. I can wear it for weeks and not have to wash it, theres no smell. The dye is high quality and doesn't seem to fade atleast in the several months I've owned it.
I own one in size XS. Compared to my J. Crew slim XS tees, the sleeves are wider and the body is significantly longer. While I usually hate the brand, my mom got me Armani Exchange v-neck tees for Christmas 3 and 2 years ago.
Didn't mind the repeat gifts, those shirts are capital f Fine. The cotton is baby soft and the fit is awesome. Besides that, try Brooks Brothers and Uniqlo.
They both use pima cotton. The fibers of pima cotton are longer than that of other cottons. Because of this, the hand is much softer. Agreed about Armani Exchange pima tees. If you have problems with flaring sleeves, then these are the solution.
For reference, here is me in a size XS. I'm 5'7" lbs with a 36" chest and 29" waist. As you can see, I have very skinny arms. Well above your crotch, but below your belt loops. Enough that it doesn't ride up during movement and show ya midriff. I never knew I could be so satisfied with a T shirt honestly. National Athletic goods is another good brand. Shouldn't be too difficult to find a Canadian stockist.
Has anyone tried LL Bean t-shirts? Their shirts are good for slim cuts. I have one of theirs from like Dope ass shirt with a hummingbird streaming rainbows and shit out of it that wraps around the whole shirt.
Thing has held up like a champ for forever. I bought some tees from these guys years ago and while I found that they held up well, the sizing was inconsistent. I do wish they sold blanks though. Everlane makes some nice tees as well. I think they're shitty. I have one and it doesn't have a stitchdown collar, it got incredibly wrinkled after one wash air dry , it seems very thin which isn't always a bad thing but it just hasn't held up like some hanes t shirts, and even UO ones, that I've had and washed for about 4 years now.
Which never are wrinkly and look great always, very soft, and have a stitch down collar which is one of the biggest things IMO.
I took this picture to show the difference. The top shirt has the current collar design. It gets super wrinkled after a single wash. The bottom shirt is an older design from a few years ago. That extra row of stitches makes all the difference. I assume that's what you meant by "stitchdown collar"? I used to love Everlane before this happened.
I actually sent this feedback to them, but they never responded to me. So now, I take every chance I get to talk shit about their products. Yea yea it was. It's a shame they don't do it anymore, I wonder why they stopped. I'd probably be buying their t's if they did because they have great fit. IIRC, they also changed the fit of their tees. The last ones I ordered were baggy and had those shit collars. Years ago, they used to be one of my favorite brands. But then they started having some really awkward fits for their sweatshirts and OCBDs.
Apr 08, · So I am looking to get shirts that do not billow a ridiculous amount around the waist. I have an athletic build, 38 chest 32 waist, and even the brooks brothers extra slim fit seems way too loose around the waist (I get a huge crease in the back of the shirt). Slim Fit guys can also self-identify by looking in their closet. Most likely, it's full of shirts from multiple big-brand retailers that are "okay," but don't really fit well. They may even be billed as slim-fit shirts, yet still billow in the back or bunch at the waist when tucked in.
