Is it just me or is it impossible to find decent t-shirts these days?

Everywhere I go, they follow the same style.

- very thin material that you can see through
- very short sleeves that make you look like some wanna be rockstar
- overly large neck holes that sit around your shoulders

It's driving me crazy! I just want t-shirts like I used to be able to buy 10 years ago :(

So you are saying see through material, plunging necklines and overly tight jeans? sounds wonderful if you are in the female section.

Take a look at Carhartt.
Most of my t shirts and polo shirts are carhartt, there made for work use and are very high quality,

I'm having the same trouble with trousers. The current trend for skinny everything trouser-related may be fine for blokes with weedy legs, but otherwise they look slightly ridiculous.

I had the same issue, everywhere seems to only cater for the current trend!
I ended up buying some guildan t-shirts and they are very good quality and cost around £2!! You can only buy them in plain colours (unless you want to pay for printing)
They don’t shrink in the tumble dryer and fit great!

Take a look in your local charity shop. I always call in to our Red Cross shop when in town, never know what you will find there - possibly even Tee shirts

My problem is they are never long enough to cover my belly.

I need say no more as I know many of you have the same problem.

I was given a t-shirt for christmas....

It was disappointingly thin.

It was from one of those "print on demand, heat press" places, who, im sure have purchased the cheapest possible material they could lay their hands on.


I ordered some shirts for silk screening a year or two ago, and certainly had the option of "standard or heavy" weight. I went for the (obviously more expensive) heavy (thinking that is was probably like those record collector ratings where "good" actually means "been used as a doormat"!) and got what was a "normal" t-shirt (nothing wrong with it at all, just as you would want it, but i wouldnt have called it heavy!)


I dont know what the "standard" would have been like, but, im sure, equally as disappointing as if you were to purchase a "good" record....
