The new Albam egyptian cotton plain ones any good? I've got one of the older ones, bit thin but really nice cut for me.

Any suggestions for a good quality plain tees in the uk? I'm real skinny but I usually wear a "next" small size.

I have lots of primark and h&m tees but they only survive a couple of washes before coming with twisted seams Sad

Next tees perform much better but not really liking the SS16 range.

I'm just looking for good quality thicker tees that can be worn on their own but also with a hoody.

Thanks

P.S I recently picked up a grey marl tee from next in the sale it's 97% cotton 3% elastane and i absolutely love it.

I'm rather skinny but this tee is relaxed and doesn't make a look silly or anything like that.

PS. The measurements for my fav tee are as follows:

20" pit-to-pit
27" long from back of neck to bottom hem.



I probably wouldn't want a bigger tee than this since it already hangs quite nicely off my night so broad shoulders Sticking out tongue

Uniqlo for me as Tees always get splattered with paint.

Do like the look of those Eastman leather x Lofgren ones though.

Regarding Uniqlo Supima cotton ones, are the single ones and two pack ones any different?

Never paid any attention but want to try a few of them

the ones at 9.90 for one have a different neck detail to the 2 the same colour for 9.90, the cheaper ones the neck is kinda folded over on itself

The 9.90 Supima ones are decent for the money, good for a year or two if you buy a few and rotate, hard to keep the white ones white though.

Yeah but how long do they last? In my experience 1-2 washes and the seams are fubar.

You washing your whites on the right settings, with decent washing powder and inside out?

My best white tee is the champion reverse weave which gets dry cleaned.
