Teeshirt meanderings

ll bean supima cotton tee shirts

My tee shirts are wearing out, slowly but surely.

Last time I bought, I tried the Mossimo tees at Target (which now, apparently, go by Mossimos "Black" and "Red"). Not bad, actually, but not "it." My ideal tee shirt lasts years, several at least, without looking ratty. The lifespan of a Mossimo tee is about a year, certainly less than two. For the price, they last as well as you could reasonably expect, but I'd rather pay more and not have to replace as frequently.

Decided to try L.L. Bean's Supima cotton tees. It was either those or Land's End Supimas, and Bean has better and more colors, plus boatneck, turtleneck, and stand-up neck styles, all rendered in cuddly Supima cotton knit. (Still debating whether a stand-up neck looks a bit silly, as if you didn't have quite enough fabric to make a real turtleneck.)

In Land's End's favor, they carry Supima sweaters--cardigan, boatneck, turtleneck, etc.--which Bean does not. But let's talk tees for now.

I've never been big on colored tee shirts per se. My concern for hue selection has more to do with the turtlenecks, and styles other than your basic short sleeved tee. I end up reaching for a plain white or black tee more often than not.
