      Hey All,

      Thanks for helping me find my next staple...

      I wear a v-neck, short sleeve t-shirt every day. Either light or dark grey. Currently I wear the BDG shirt from Urban Outfitters.

      I've tried others with limited success.
      • The Lululemon 5-year tee: the spandex prevented it from laying on the body well enough. Also, I don't work at a gym.
      • American Apparel: Wasn't happy with the quality of the cuts, and there was too much variation. I want to be able to buy more, at a moments notice, and be happy with it.
      • G-Star: Didn't like the quality. The collar and cuffs "pilled".
      • Various stuff from Target: just felt like what it was, a $10 shirt....
      • The BDG T's aren't bad at all. They are comfortable, fit OK, and last. Im just bored with them, and its at the point where I may need to replace them all. They show a little age, and some smell a big funky even after a thorough wash.



      So, what do you guys think? I don't want to spend $200 or anything on a Armani T... I just want good quality for the money.
      By this I mean the fabric and the cut. I DO NOT want any obscene branding or other ornamentation. Ideally a lightweight, soft, comfy t.
      I will likely buy 5-10 to start, and want to easily order more in the future.

      Thanks!

      I also wear v-necks....usually gray and no graphics....I'm very interested in this topic...
      For what it's worth I've found that the gaps line of lived in v-necks are very comfortable and fit very nicely

      H&M has plenty of basic tees but the quality isn't that great.

      Otherwise I think you are DIR with Urban Outfitters.

      Thanks for the input! I'll have to consider going into a Gap store... its been over a decade. H&M doesn't quite fit the bit.

      Put in an order for some of these: https://www.meundies.com/products/mens-v-neck

      I don't think they will be what I am looking for - the color/shade for one, I worry won't look great on me. But, I'm impatient and I guess the bucks were burning a hole in my pocket.

      Thanks in advance for the next suggestions.
