I've been looking to re-stock with some decent quality basics. I'd like some vests/camis and some long and short sleeved t-shirts in interesting colours.

I've looked at Uniqulo, but they never seem to have the colours I want in the right size.

Kettlewell seem to have what I want, but are a bit more expensive than I usually pay. Is this reflected in the quality, or are you paying for the colours thing?

I have never ordered from them but I do like styles especially the slash neck tees.
They look quite long in Length too.
I'd struggle with what colour to order.

Kettlewell are nice lengths, cuts and keep shape.
However, I have found ( with the 2 items I own ) they bobble.
The tops I have are heavyweight jersey...

I think they are pricey for what they are- plain long sleeved t hirts

Can anyone suggest a decent alternative? Usually buy m&s or landsend but m&s quality really downhill & styling of landsend has changed to become very fitted. I am ideally looking for relaxed t shirts in bright colours which don't bobble too quickly...thank you

I've only one Kettlewell top in cotton lycra but it is noticeably better quality jersey than most other T shirts - on a level with the better Boden offerings. No bobbling on it (it's not viscose though).

They are pricey but given that most cheap T shirts are in holes after a year, hopefully they will last a bit better.

I'd say definitely worth ordering a few things to have a look at.

I have just checked my Kettlewell labels on the back of what fossil said,
they are 95% viscose shock 5% elastane.
imagined they were cotton mix.

so OP, if you avoid the viscose, you may be onto a winner...

I'm about to take the plunge and buy some. At least it's free returns. I wonder what th sizing is like. I know it's pricey, but it's the only place I've seen the right style in the right colours. I can let you know what I think if you want.

Viscose goes shiny when ironed
