Boat/slash neck t-shirts

A few months ago I had two carcinomas removed. Even in high summer I need to cover my decolletage area. I am always on the quest for t-shirts that come quite high up on the neck area. Usually the ones called boat neck or slash neck work well. Finding them is not that easy though. The sleeves need to be elbow, 3/4 or full length. I'm looking for all the basic colours, white, block, navy and grey. Would like them to be excellent quality and not cling to my muffin top. If you could point me in the right direction I'd be most grateful! TIA.

Lands End?

I can't help you with anything fancier, sorry grin

I have a People Tree one, this is this year's version. In three colours, but all stripy.

Abzs the shape of those t-shirts is spot on! Shame they have nothing plain but I might get one of the stripe ones anyway.
valium I am a petite size 8 and usually find Land's End's XS too big and frumpy. I have noticed they have a few boatnecks, I just don't think they'll be flattering on me.
Thank you both

On the lookout for something similar, to no avail so far.

La redoute?
I wear a scarf most days, even in summer.

EarlyInTheMorning Wed 13-Feb-13 17:40:21

I am going to sound so fussy here, but I find LaRedoute to be of very poor quality and the sizing is all over the place.
TrackK I also have to wear a scarf most days...

Cheap and cheerful on la redoute, will only last one season for sure. Put boat neck top into polyvore or shopstyle, there's olds. Oasis came up with a couple as a first glance.

I just bought a few from J Crew in sale. Not cheapest but really good quality and I think they have a free delivery promo on at the mo.

Those are nice Tweet. Delivery is £7 though, plus the price stated is not the final price as they add taxes afterwards. Why can't they just state total price?

Have you had a look at the Kettlewell ones? Lots of different colours and a small is supposedly an 8-10

I bought the vintage and perfect fit ones and no extra tax was applied. Eventually the sale goes to 70% off so might be worth keeping an eye on and getting when down to about £14, that's what I got them for so £7 postage wasn't too bad when reduced down, got four for £35 with P&P.

I don't know how you've managed that Tweet. Just 2 vintage boatnecks come to £61.02 for me.

You want Zara basics.

I'm wearing one now: it's at least a year old, much loved, and no signs of ageing yet. The colourways seem to cycle each year, so it might take a while to get everything you want.

Boden do quite a lot of boatnecks as do M&S

MrsCampbellBlack Thu 14-Feb-13 15:11:39

Yes I like the look of the boden ones

Hi OP

Not sure if you bought your tops yet, if not J Crew has a 20% off everything offer. Enter 'INSIDER' at the check out!

Joules have some lovely ones in at the moment

Absy Mon 25-Feb-13 15:54:31

I can second the Zara ones. They're really good.
