Found the necks on the Uniqlo U ones to be quite tight as well

Anyone know how the Uniqlo U tees compare to the Arket 220 in terms of weight/thickness?

Uniqlo supima are my staple, for the person saying they crease a-lot after a wash after it drys i find the creases come out by themselves pretty much straight away after wearing it for an hour or two

Tempted by Uniqlo U tees but think the supima's are just about the right weight for me

Have they ever done a pocket version of the supima?

For some reason I can't get on with plain tees unless I'm wearing them under something.

I’m the opposite, can’t handle a pocket on a t shirt, makes me feel weird

True, would recommend those Supima ones if the temperature hits above 30°C.

Whatever you do, do not buy the 2-packs for retail (£80). Alright purchase on sale, but £40 a tee is a fuckin joke for these Laughing out loud They're basically Arket 170's for 3x the price. I actually prefer the feel of Arket's tbh, VS feels scratchy.

From what I've seen they are all made in Portugal, and have the brushed feel similar to Norse Niels tees, also made in Portugal. I think for the money you can't go wrong.

Had a look at them in Oi Polloi. Feel quite thin and stretchy, some nice colours though.

Recently picked up some Revolver Sportswear, really impressed - great heavy weight and lovely texture/feel. I sized up from medium to a large as I prefer tees looser and the fit was spot on. Seem like they are getting stocked in more of the usual suspects now.

Nobody wear James Perse? Haven't found anything else that comes close to the wear and wash on these. John Elliott probably the closest in that price range. Jungmaven and LVC 50's also on heavy rotation, can always pick up the LVC's on heavy discount around sale time.

uniqlo tees remind me of the huf ones, very tight round the neck, depends if you like that fit
