Where do you buy everyday cotton T-shirts?

I've been looking for aaaaaaaaages for some t-shirts to replace the tired old ill fitting ones I currently own. I just want plain, good quality, cotton, with a little bit of stretch, not too tight but not stupidly baggy as I'd like them to look feminine. Why is this so hard?! Where do you buy yours?

H & M

Really? My local H&M isn't very big and despite looking on numerous occasions I haven't seen any worth trying on. I've looked in a bigger one and tried hundreds on and found only 1 that I like the shape of. Maybe I'm being too fussy!

I second h&m.
Next are also good, but not always worth the extra £ IMO. Give m&s a go too, but I find they come up a bit short.

Same as you, I live in simple tees!

I like jigsaw for plain tops. They wash well and hold their shape.

What about this one?

Gap - there's an outlet store near us.

I like the H&M LOGG range if you can get them (our local branch doesn't stock them). They're not as stuffed with lycra as some of their others.

DomesticGoddess31 Fri 09-Sep-16 14:10:54

Do you know, that might just be what I'm looking for! Thank you Cellardoor23!!! I've never looked at Jigsaw because I thought they were way over my budget. A bit more £ than I'd like to spend but frankly I'd pay it now for the perfect tee I've been looking that long. I wonder if they do some patterned ones that won't break the bank.....

I also like Toast for Ts although the price breaks my heart. Meant to stock up in the sale and forgot, dammit.

Floisme I've just spotted the 1 top I bought on my H&M expedition in their LOGG range online! I've found some more I like so will place an order here too, thanks ladies!

What about American Apparel? I used to get my t-shirts from there (admittedly it was a while ago and last time I went into an actual store it was all gold leggings and fluorescent leotards)

H&M or Uniqlo

Mandelinka Fri 09-Sep-16 16:36:46

Uniqlo, hands down
Have 3 Ts and couple of cardigans, all at least 6 years old and they look like bought yesterday

Rinceoir Fri 09-Sep-16 16:48:48

Uniqlo are good. As are Cos- they do some nice fitted ones alongside the voluminous stuff. Around £20. I got the perfect t in whistles recently. It was £35 but it's already been worn over and over.

I'm old so I get mine from M&S. Plain and the sleeve is a bit longer to hide bat wings! You have to be very selective with the colours but they do wash and tumble well.

Wellywife Fri 09-Sep-16 16:51:48

Sorry. H&M twisted out of shape on the first wash for me. Still using an old Zara one though.

Momzilla82 Fri 09-Sep-16 17:20:04

Another vote for Jigsaw- I have 5 in different colours. Go nicely under standard black work dress too in winter to change it up.

Bavmorda Fri 09-Sep-16 17:22:18

Uniqlo, definitely.

olderthanyouthink Fri 09-Sep-16 19:20:40

Does anyone know where I can get good quality t shirts that are wide at the bottom and preferably a bit drapey, like these.
Long sleeve
short sleeve

(I have these but are either bobbly or holey now angry)

Another vote for the Whistles ones - I wait for the sales. Wish they did more colours/prints though.

Welly - Which M&S ones do you like? The last ones I had lost their shape really quickly.

poppym12 Fri 09-Sep-16 19:44:07

Gap, next and a couple I bought recently in the dregs of the m & s sale - two plain white tshirts for 4 quid. If they don't wash and wear well I won't be too upset.

American Apparel. I order online now (wore a lot of stuff from there when I was younger but not so much now!)

Bolshybookworm Fri 09-Sep-16 22:43:46

American apparel. Best quality for the price and they never shrink. I have some that I bought 7 years ago, wore them through pregnancy to about 7 months and they have still kept their shape. One has just got its first hole (I wear it at least once a week so it's been washed several hundred times!). Best thing is they don't change their basic stock so I can easily buy replacements. Holy grail of t-shirts! I like the summer T but is fairly tight fitting.

CallarMorvern Fri 09-Sep-16 23:19:22

I really dislike the M&S ones, they always go short and wide in the wash. I'm coveting the Jigsaw ones but I can't afford them. At the moment I've got some from George, which are performing surprisingly well, stretchy and a decent length ( I'm 5'10). I've a few Boden essential ones, but they vary so much, one is so thin it is only for layering, but the others are good.
