V-neck t-shirts, do they exist?

Or are they a figment of my imagination?

I like to wear v-neck t-shirts with my suits for work. You know, good weight cotton, not see through, in outrageous colours like white, navy or green. You used to be able to buy them in M&S everywhere.

Please tell me where I can buy them?

Nope, flimsy shite that has holes in after one wash.

I was going to say Gap too.

I have a few - but not particularly smart - mine are casual tshirts.

Uniqlo - I live in their long sleeve stripy tees and quality is v good for the price

Had forgotten about American apparel, but this is not suitable for work
What's with the ghetto chic? confused

I've just had a totally pointless trip to M+S for some white/black/navy short-sleeved cotton+atinybitofelastane t-shirts. No joy sad

When you find them, please share, OP.

I like uniqlo, but I am not a small bosomed Asian elf, I am more of your Germanic Valkyrie...

John Lewis has some by American Vintage which are thick enough to be able to wear without a jacket but still fine. They are about £45 each.

the material is really nice

Unfortunately "flimsy shite that has holes in after one wash" seems to be the norm these days, no matter how much you pay for it.

Pippidoeswhatshewants Sun 06-Mar-16 21:17:02

Maybe I need a trip to John Lewis, although I think £45 for a t-shirt is ridiculous!

I am about to order some from Boden. The gap ones are terrible and flimsy.

southeastastra Sun 06-Mar-16 21:18:55

american vintage is crap imo, but john lewis own brand do some nice thick v necks, also check our the somerset but temperley range

BikeRunSki Sun 06-Mar-16 21:20:39

Boden ones were flimsy shite last year. Haven't bothered this year.

I bought some new jeans in Gap last week - they have got these - quite like the look of them but the reviews are rubbish

lamiashiro Sun 06-Mar-16 21:25:52

I've just bought some from Gap for the gym. They are fairly see through though. They're the linen ones.

daftbesom Sun 06-Mar-16 21:29:19

Lands End. They also do cotton/modal scoop neck which I wear with suits all the time.

lavendersun Sun 06-Mar-16 21:31:59

Just remembered that I bought from here a few years ago - colours limited but they were thick and decent quality

PacificDogwod Sun 06-Mar-16 21:32:14

Well, I seem to have just placed an order for 5 t-shirts with Uniqlo.

Big-bosomed Germanic Valkyie here too grin
We shall see….

Very unexpected find on Amazon:

The navy test one arrived today and seems nice. Not too low cut, not too flimsy. I have ordered lots more colours now, you can't go wrong for £3.99!!!
