The J Crew ones are a lovely shape but sometimes have holes in them after a few washes. Are Whistles tshirts any good? Is American Vintage still good quality? Haven't bought from them for a few years.

I like the Whistles seamed back ones. They wash well but I don't think they are cotton.

James Perse makes my favourite Ts - I have some which are 17 years old and still going strong.

I like the whistles ones (faye?) - they are cotton I think. Very flattering shape I think.

Thanks! Whistles have 20% off until the end of today so will take a look at those. Which James Perse ones do you buy?

I live in the James Perse relaxed casual and relaxed v neck tees. For long sleeve, the sheer slub is what the J Crew long sleeve tees try to copy, but James Perse is much better quality - unfortunately this is evident in the price difference. Worth the difference for me as I wear them constantly.

Thanks, appreciate it. Do you buy online?

I usually pick these up in the States when I go back home, but they are available on-line here,

I find the whistles ones to be very short in the body.

Good to know. I'm quite tall so prefer slightly longer tshirts.
