After some long sleeved T-shirts, slim-ish fit and a bit longer in the body

Something similar to the Cuts ones (https://cutsclothing.com/collections/elongated/products/black-l-s-crew-elongated) but with easy shipping to the UK…

I’m after the same. Long sleeve tees or polos. Anyone got any suggestions?

Anyone here bought Lady White before? Worth getting? I'm looking for something relatively thick, but not too long. Arket is too long and Real McCoy's is too short. If that helps.

Velva Sheen? size up tho.

Hard to beat Supreme pocket tees. Would love to see Iron heart produce a version.

I have a couple of Danton ones from Kafka and theyre good.

I bought a Lady White tee in the sale last week. Quality was decent although not too thick, but i'd size up if you want a relaxed fit.

My experience of Velva Sheen is that the length can vary quite a lot.

The 2 pack pocket T’s are quite long (long enough to tuck) whereas this for instance (https://www.endclothing.com/gb/velva-sheen-wide-border-tee-161550w-oh.html) is far shorter. A good few inches. And then the pigment dyed ones I’ve bought as somewhere in between.

So I wouldn’t count on a consistent length from Velva Sheen.

Got some Velva Sheen pocket Tee (twin pack) but they are a bit long/ baggy in the body (pit to pit and sleeve is ok) anyone know how they wash and wear? Was thinking of tumble drying. Any similar alternatives with pocket around £30 a piece?

I had this same problem with a Velva sheen 2 pack a couple of years ago. Mine didn’t shrink whatever I did: dryer, hot radiator, boil wash. Ended up getting them shortened at a tailors and then never wearing them. I’d back them if you can.

Got one of the super heavy merz tees and it’s great.
Velva sheen not bad as well.

American apparel hammer tees great for the cash. Also H&M slim fit tees are good fitting and long

Thanks will look into those. Shame about the Velva Sheen as price is ok for made in USA. Not worth spending loads of white tees imo.

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.

Still stand by this for anyone looking for plain tees.

Also, AS Colour are great - https://ascolour.co.uk/

They're the blanks freshflow used for his pocket tees, used to only be available down under.
