here It's not cheap I know, but the fabric is so soft. It is long in the body so I can bend over in jeans without revealing ar** and it skims the waist so no muffin top issues.

Looks lovely but £48???? shock

Maveta Sun 20-Sep-09 21:45:35

those are LOVELY and i covet them.. the fabric is so soft. i do worry they´d warp after one wash and i´d freak out after spending that money

CHOOGIRL Sun 20-Sep-09 21:51:17

No have washed it in the machine and it is still lovely. Have ordered a couple more in white and charcoal.

lovely but pricey

these are my staple t-shirt,nice and long

monkeysmama Sun 20-Sep-09 21:55:19

Ggirl I've been considering getting a few of those AA ones. Do they wash well? Thank you.

brimfull Sun 20-Sep-09 21:58:04

yes they do but i don't tumble dry them

I have numerous colours ,they are quite big so best to read the reviews to get the size right

Megglevache Sun 20-Sep-09 22:00:07

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOh that looks really nice!

LauraIngallsWilder Sun 20-Sep-09 22:02:42

£48 for a t shirt that looks a bit like a maternity tent

No thanks!

American Vintage is fabulous, well worth the extra ££

Meglet Sun 20-Sep-09 22:06:24

ggirl the AA t-shirt looks just like what I've been looking for.

<<wonders if she will be young and trendy again if she buys AA>> grin.

Choo has it kept it's shape and did it bobble? I find the pricier they are the quicker they bobble grin

CHOOGIRL Sun 20-Sep-09 22:13:45

Has kept shape and not bobbled. The tshirt top is made of a really soft cotton fabric - not like normal t-shirt material so I have a feeling it will last for years.

TheMoistWorldOfSeptimusQuench Sun 20-Sep-09 22:14:54

Nice top

"American Vintage... is quickly gathering notoriety in the UK..."

Notoriety? What? Have their designers been keying cars and upsetting the neighbours with their noisy parties?

cookielove Sun 20-Sep-09 22:16:54

wtf no way 48 for one t shirt, that is to much for me

monkeysmama Sun 20-Sep-09 22:18:35

Thanks gg.

monkeysmama Sun 20-Sep-09 22:18:35

Thanks gg.

Septimus grin

LTEC - why the sigh? I won't balk at buying cashmere to BF in (after your cardicoat thread the other day I ordered a lovely one from Pure!), but I refuse to spend 50 quid on a t-shirt. grin

CHOOGIRL Sun 20-Sep-09 22:19:59

Oh FFS - I went to Tesco Express the other day purchased a couple of bits and didn't have much change from £50. Food has all gone now - whereas the t-shirt which cost £44 with my mumsnet discount is still giving me pleasure. Has no-one heard of fashion maths???

LetThemEatCake Sun 20-Sep-09 22:24:07

just a sigh, Alibaba, just a sigh.

Lovely to hear about the cashmere BFing cardi though, can you link?

LauraIngallsWilder Sun 20-Sep-09 22:25:25

Choogirl of course
A tenner for a t shirt and you have £40 change for food
£48 for a t shirt and you only have £2 left for food

As I said before £48 for a tshirt is ridiculous however long it lasts (especially if it billows like a maternity shirt)
I have loads of clothes I have owned and loved for years and rarely spend more than £20 on any one item
Never more than £15 on a t shirt

Alibabaandthe40nappies Sun 20-Sep-09 22:30:32

this in the mink

It is delicious, hangs very nicely without the belt too.
