Are the 220GSM ones comparable to the supreme pocket cut&sew tees?

If you're talking about the £56 Supreme summer tees, I've got those and the Arket 220. Going by feel the 220 is probably like 30-40% thinner. The 220 does the job as a basic tee and fits well, but personally I prefer something closer to weight of the Supreme tee.

150s are good as undershirt. 170 is not worth bothering imo.

I've been looking for similar to the Supreme tees but haven't found anything. Someone on here recommended Hanes Beefy, but I didn't rate the quality or fit tbh. If anyone has ideas gimme a shout please.

Cheers mate, exactly the info I was looking for. Yeah looking for the ones that don't fall under the 't-shirts' category on their webstore, but the 'tops & sweaters' category.

Would also appreciate a recommendation for a t shirt with similar weight to the supreme heayvweight tees

Yeah another vote for their medium weight ones, their heavier ones don’t feel all that nice. Long sleeves in the medium weight are nice, bit of a silky/mercerised quality to them

for t shirts like supreme pocket tees, try camber maxweight. I have a wtaps shirt printed on to camber and it feels pretty close to the supreme tees I have.

Went in the Liverpool store for the first time yesterday. Not really my thing but they had this tshirt for women and was wondering if there was an equivalent for men as it felt amazing? Didn’t have time to ask or go the mens section but wish I had now. Anyone know if there’s a mens in this material please?

A simple click onto the men's section and then t-shirts provided by your link LFC would lead me to believe you are after one of the following.

Easy to order online and return, so give both a punt.

Come on mate, if it was that simple I’d know myself. Which is why I was after advice.

Both the tshirts you’ve posted are 100% cotton. Plus a big price difference.

The womens one is 96% cotton 4% elastane and described as cotton stretch and costing £35.

The slim black, non-faded, stretch?

They are good. Great fit. Decent quality. Especially good is the relatively high rise. They do stretch a lot. I went down one full size, now wishing it was two. There's a bit of personal preference in there but i'd recommend anyone to size down at least one.

Cheers mate. That's the pair.

I have a pair of regular fit jeans from Arket in a 34 that are now a bit big. I'll probably go for a 33 in the slim fit.

I got some of the slim black stretch jeans. Avoid at all costs.
They collect dust better than a lint roller.

I considered taking them back, but thought this is the risk of buying fast fashion.

Uniqlo jeans are bad for that too. Hate it, never wear them anymore because of it
Cos ones do to a lesser extent
Never had any issues with acnes

All are elastane blends
