How'd you get on with these? Quite curios how they fit / look.

Harry Stedman looks like a pretty decent brand - got some nice stuff coming through.

Went for the L

Got a few more of those two pack mccoys yesterday, noticed that compared to new after a wash the neck size has stretched quite a bit, no way near the quality of the more expensive tees from them.

Got myself some Hanes supreme tees off Ebay for about £4 a tee, near enough new. By far the best plain tees I have worn, wear them as an under-tee mostly.

Got a john elliot tee last week and it's a great slim fit. Pretty thin fabric so not for the hand-in-pocket crew.

Got these today - thick fabric and slim fitting. The sleeves are a bit long for me but not a major issue. The neck is really small which I think is a good thing, hopefully will stay that way.

The interior care tag says 'Columbiaknit Inc' so I guess they are made by these guys - the T's seem to retail for $9.50 a piece @ http://usa-wear.com/ostore/index.php?route=product/product&path;=64_156&product;_id=677

The measurements for the Medium I bought pretty much exactly match their size Small (which is out of stock/unavailable on 'usa-wear').

Not sure how I feel about this Laughing out loud

Harry tees turned up today, quality is fairly good, piss on the twin pack mccoys imo, especially on the cotton, length and neck.

sharing ……

both L's HS on top of RM greys - latter is a shit shade of grey in comparison, bluey, the arms of the Hs are a touch longer and a shorter T out the pack…







RM both L, shrinkage and stretch after one 40 wash against a fresh one.





cotton is pretty rough and slubby after a wash too.

Returned a one pocket RM this week, only because the colour wasn't to my liking but quality on the ££ ones are decent.

Sent mine back with the intention of getting something from another brand, sleeves looked loads better rolled up but not worth getting them altered obviously. I havent tried the premium T's that get talked about on here (McCoys etc) but they are thicker and more solid than Supreme etc

Arms seem fine on what I got, a bit longer than the RM's but shape is similair and shorter which to me is a good thing.

I have an old battered velva sheen, they stretch like a mothers quim, very much like the twin pack RM's. Wouldn't recommend. Plain EG's are good though.

Anybody tried these out before? Sound pretty damn substantial at 9oz.

Hmm the Velva Sheen are £65 shipped for a twin pack, was going to try them next.

I will try and order some of the Columbiaknit ones from that site at some point as well but they dont do marl grey.

Where are you finding the Velva Sheens? They have the long sleeves too? I'm after one but don't really want to pay £65 from The Bureau

Let me know how you get along with them mate! Interested to see how their "never-sag" collar holds up after a couple of washes.
