I've shopped at The Gap and Old Navy for ages. They have lots of basic layering tops and t-shirts, tanks, etc. that have kept me clothed through undergrad and grad school.
Sadly, they don't wash super well. The colors start to look faded pretty fast and I've noticed the sweaters snag really easily. I'm coming to the realization that I probably need to just invest the money in some shirts that last.
I'm a pretty boring dresser. I like basic t-shirts. No frills, no lace, no ruching, no dry clean only. 99% of what I own is a solid color with no labels or decoration. And I'm pretty happy with that. But where to find basic t's and tops that don't break the bank (ideally under 40 a piece, but maybe a bit more) and come in XXL? A lot of the places I've seen in stores, like the Limited, don't go up that large.
