    the studio nicholson tshirt reminds me of the fit of Vetements… but Vetements tshirt's length is even longer, which ruins the entire look

    maybe people love uniqlo but I have to say that my bad experiences with unique was suck with their t-shirts… so no more uniqlo anymore
    after washing their t-shirts mine were loosen the size too much. and the quality was bad. I don't know how to describe the feeling but I see something like leather feeling(?) at the end of t-shirts corner(?) (sorry my English is not good). not one but many of them not worth to buy if you are gonna plan to buy uniqlo

    So I guess I'm looking for some advice here, I could probably afford to get 3 or 4 of the UQ t-shirts which is really all someone would need. (3 in white, 1 in black) BUT the issue comes with the fact that I have a tremor. (This means my hands shake uncontrollably) and certain days are so bad that eating often causes spills and stains. Don't get me wrong I know how to get these stains out but its a lot of effort and there's always a risk of ruining a really nice shirt when I could get a bundle of 10 H&M shirts for about the same price.

    Over the past year I've gotten untop of my depression, my drinking and lost a lot of weight (Late teens and early 20s was rough lmao), I've nearly achieved my ideal weight goal and I want to start feeling better in my body and take pride with how I dress. But I also don't want to spend money on something that could potentially be ruined.

    Any advice from you guys? I know I'm leaning towards the H&M stuff but the quality, as pointed out by the video, is less than stellar.

    Uniqlo Airism will never be 100% cotton. If they do that they will not be cool shirt anymore. Making it 100% cotton it will be warmer to wear. Airism is my go to when i workout it feels cool even tough i am working out

    I am a fabric manufacturer and garment maker myself for brands like HM, Cos, Zara but also for some high end ones as well. And I think price = quality is a very misleading assumption. A $5/yard fabric I sell can be cut into a $20 dress at Zara or $600 dress on the high street. All of those wash tests are applied on every single fabric we sell and usually they are not representative of quality, but just an erroneous production at the dye house. This happens literally all the time. Almost every order needs to be repaired in one way or another. To be frank, fast fashion retailers are much more strict about quality requirements than high end brands because they actually have systems and procedures in place to control the standards unlike smaller brands. Just know that the cost difference between a regular tshirt betweem those brands are usually at max $2/pc

    I wish i live in the states, according to the site…i wanted to get two pcs of the XS size of the UNIQLO, but then…the shipping cost to west Africa, Nigeria, Lagos. I will be spending roughly $30 on total shipping cost and upon arrival, i will have to go pick up at drop-off facility or pay another $3/$4 to send dispatcher to me house.

    In total i will be spending roughly $35/$40 on shipping cost alone. I wish i can get a free delivery to Houston, Texas, U.S where my shipping facility is…i can cover other cost from the facility to Nigeria. I loved the video

    Funny how a relaxed fit can be seen as "modern". In my eyes, the tighter, muscle fit is the modern fit. The relaxed fit looks a lot like what people were wearing in the 90s and to me looks very dated.

    Realistically, none of these are truly modern, as both fits have already been popular in the past.

    So you're saying I might want to consider buying a single white t-shirt instead of 5 white t-shirts of slightly lower quality. Hmm tough choice.

    I kinda feel like you need to expand this to a $500 dollar version. The $25 and the $100 are mostly the same, with a lot of the same quality, but the @100 ones chose to have theirs made in Portugal, which does not make a difference. It's more expensive, has a better ring to it, but there's no difference. It's propaganda.

    I am one of those who prefer the cotton, no matter if you can get some better fit/resistance from a half plastic one. I am talking about daily products, not specialised ones. In some cases it might not be practical, like for socks, but for a t-shirt it is. Just imagine the recycling process or what happens to your t-shirt in the trash bin and after. Even worse if it is a mixture of different plastics and cotton.

    Hey @TimDessaint new subscriber here. And I thought i was the only freak when it comes to white t-shirts. A few comments… you did include a disclaimer about the fit (your preference is way more oversized than relaxed i’d say), but have u ever taylored ur Ts? Specially length (including sleeves). For the more expensive ones, made in Portugal what is the type of cotton they are using? My preference is Pima Cotton from Peru (egyptian cotton a good second and chinese a far third)… Opacity = thickness of the fabric? And if the fabric is a mix (Uniqlo) i dont think it is fair to be compared to the others… Finally as the manufacturing goes, I am thinking there’s probably little human labour in these clothing… I’ve never owned anything made in Portugal, but over the years I have paid well over a 100 bucks or closer to 200 for the “right” plain white T. With a 100% cotton it is 150% sure that it will shrink (and not proportionately), but when u buy it that is to be considered. Since thickness is not standard, I do pick lighter or heavier depeding on the season and the occasion.

    washing on "delicate" cycle and cold water is not a very meaningful test for the way most guys (including me) or laundries wash T shirts. As a prime criterion of T shirts is whether the collars hold their shape over a reasonable time, use, and multiple wash cycles. (incidentally, I now like 'True Classic' brand-they are inexpensive, a good value, and hold up well under normal to fairly heavy use; my personal size preference is more form fitting rather than baggy/oversize)

    100% Cotton, « cool »…

    Well not really, other plastic based textiles, if recycled may are even better than natural cotton, knowing that most cotton plants are polluting rivers and poisoning underground, which ends killing everything on the surface… Most countries those brands use are concerned about water issues as well, and stop their production of food for the locals for cotton…

    The represent blank tee is in my opinion the best T-shirt. It’s not overly expensive and will definitely last you 20 years and I’d much rather pay the price of a single 70£ shirt once every 20 years than 5£ every month. (5£ every month for 20 years is 1,200£)

    16:15 I would say that cost of living is a much bigger factor than ethical working conditions for Europe being more expensive than South Asian manufacturing. Yes, there are cases of atrocious working conditions in some factories, but there's no need to assume that it is the most prominent reason for the price difference.
