I'm looking to buy a bunch of non-plain but yes-simple men's T-shirts. Please help?
Right now I have a couple dozen shirts from Old Navy that look kind of like this
, but with much shorter sleeves, in 6-7 different color combinations. I got them on clearance a year or two ago for $5-6 each. I like them because they're simple for daily wear, but are also interesting to look at vs. a blank, plain one-color shirt.
The closest thing to what I'm looking for is this
shirt. I purchased one to try out, and here's what I like about it: tight neck/collar, longer sleeves (the old ones stop a couple inches above my elbow, I like them elbow-length), interesting shape with the strips of a different color breaking up the shirt, it's a bit longer/taller than the current shirts, and it comes in a range of color combos. What I don't like is that it's 100% polyester, which is apparently bad for cleaning my glasses, and my nipples show through the thin fabric. I'm neutral on their price - $12 isn't bad, but I'd like something closer to $10, since I'd want to buy 2-4 of several different colors. I'd definitely go for this one if it weren't polyester.
has something similar to that one, but it's $22 instead of $12; this
is almost OK, but it has logos on it, and the only contrast is the different thread color; 6 Dollar Shirts only seems to do print shirts; American Apparel seems to love Flashdance collars on their plain shirts; the other bulk shirt sites I've seen like Outlet Shirts linked above seem to have the odd-color sleeve shirts I have now and the polyester shirt I almost like, then plain from there.
I'm not looking for print/logo/ThinkGeek/Woot-esque shirts for several reasons. I also lump ringer shirts in with the plain one-color shirts.
So a quick list to recap:
1. Plain non-print cloth, but not one-color.
2. Variety of color combos.
3. Tight collar, round, not V, not polo/buttonup.
4. Short sleeve, elbow length, not capri-pants (capri sleeve?) length.
5. Tall shirt length preferable.
6. Loose overall, not skintight.
7. Poly cotton cloth would be best, then cotton, then 100% polyester.
8. ~$10 price range.
