United Athle do look good for the price. Looks like they have a good selection of different cotton weight tees.

I see they have an online store in Taiwan http://www.unitedathle.co/ and they currently have a 10% discount code going. Think I'll get a few and try them out.

Uniqlo white tees don't wash well at all.

I tried their panel tees before I found Jensen and thought I could stretch the XL. They were so well made and rigid they hardly had any stretch and I chucked em.

I've been looking at Hanes beefy tall for my Jensen (RIP) replacement but they're boxier and I don't think I'll like em. Jensen just fitted me perfect without stretching.

Another options for heavyweight is Camber, they're made to order in the USA. There's a waiting period. But their measurements come up boxy in tall sizes too. Kinda interested in their sweatpants though, look heavier/thicker than champion vintage style reverse weave?

Oh well I reviewed my remaining Jensens and between soaking the whites in whitening solution, cutting off any loose threads and ironing them they're servicable for another year imo. I got that long to find a worthy replacement.

I use em for everything, I got a stack of gray marles which are my PJ tops and gym tees, and I got a variety of pocket talls as a base or second layer over a Hanes undertee. They wear and wash so well but even Jensens are mortal and die some time..my Navies were the last to go. They had a broken in RL style coolness for a while but after 2 years heavy rotation they finally were retired to the garbage. One day that will happen to all Jensens…and Maree Jensen won't answer my emails anymore. She's probably retired on a houseboat in Chesapeake Bay, eating seafood and playing shuffleboard…I love America and I loved Jensen, it was basically the ultimate company to me, made PT gear for the US military, based in Virginia, they sent out the wrong sizes to me once and replaced for free with no return necessary..

Trying to come away from Uniqlo's plain t's but unsure of the decent alternatives at the moment; looking for various colours and will last a good amount of washes.

Thanks in advance.

These are holding up great after 6 months, best tees I've tried. Indigo come up slightly smaller than grey & white.

Strange shop. Literally have not heard of a single brand that they sell.

Might be cheaper to actually import them from China through a proxy.

The more legit looking ones on taobao seem to be ~£6-7 which plus postage to the UK, possible customs, postage within the UK and general ballache doesn't seem much of a saving on £15 a tee here
