Any recommendations for some T-shirts with more length . When I wear roomier trousers or shorts I always feel my tops look a bit short/slim

I found the Arket tees to be quite long. They always stick out from under shirts.

Velva sheen pocket T-shirt’s have a very good length on them. Longer than most T-shirt’s I’ve had and longer than other Velva Sheen T’s.

I have the same problem and Uniqlo Supima Cotton ones do the job for me…cheap as well so you can replace frequently

pretty long but the thing I don't like about em is the arm holes are too low at the shoulder. ie if you reach up the tee lifts up a lot. Minimum/no shrinkage.

Jensen were the ultimate tees imo, Hanes beefy is the closest compromise I've found but they're nothing on Jensen

Wear uniqlo ones, had some for around 3 years and still wear them. Never had any shrinkage issues, and that includes 3 I’ve bought recently.

I wear a medium for a fitted/smarter tee and wear a large for a looser and longer fit.

Some shrinkage occurs, as with most tees, but that's in no way exaggerated

Any recommended T-shirt’s that don’t crease much, or don’t require ironing?
The uniqlo supima ones are good, but they crease like mad out of the washing machine/when stored in the drawer, and ironing before each wear ain’t cool

For longer t-shirts, check out Kirkland Signature (my go-to plain white tee) - 3 for £12 here - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Kirkland-Men-s-T-shirt-Size-L-100-Combed-Cotton-White-3-pack-ASOS-Plain-Blank/273905981409?hash=item3fc61197e1:g:ktgAAOSwW2hdCj8Q

Pro Club are also decent - I get mine from Blacksmith - https://www.blacksmith-store.com/collections/pro-club - they've only got the black in stock at the moment but they re-up pretty often.

True, but Supima a bit more summer weight imo…obviously depends on where you live and what summer you have! Shocked
