    My husband gave me my favourite Tee. He photographed a particularly good display of the tulips I grew in the garden, printed the snap onto transfer paper and ironed it onto a p[lain white T-shirt. hepatica

    An ancient Roxy tee that has somehow survived the 80s, living with 4 female roommates, getting married, and having three children! Softest tee I have ever had . . .

    My favorite T is grey in color with a screen print of James Dean. It’s old, a little faded but it’s so cool!

    Over sized blue t-shirt my father used to wear. It is soft against my skin and all the memories it brings me when I cuddle up on the couch in it watching a movie.

    For me it’s not about what color the t shirt is, it is all about the fit. It was to be really thin and cling to every curve. I love my tshirts!

    My current favorite is my monster munch t-shirt. I saved my crisp packets up and sent off for it. Definitely the best thing I’ve got with crisps! Also it conveys easily my love of monster munch.

    has to be either the black tee with a ‘lady of ill repute’ that an old flatmate passed on to me years ago, or the blue leafy version of the same tee that I copied and made up this summer.

    My fave t shirt would have to be one bought in a market in Thailand. Its gray with navy writing and sleeves and has the Beer Chang logo on it. It is so comfy and fits super well, but even more than that it has so many memories in it. Every time I wear it I remember my amazing trip and I smile.

    My favorite tshirt doesn’t actually belong to me. My friend had a very old blue tee that he couldn’t seem to part with and was also full of rips and holes. So I decided to take a nice dark blue cotton fabric and sew it inside the tshirt and embroidered around the holes to prevent further ripping. After that, I silk-screened a picture of Thomas the Tank Engine onto the shirt and cleverly placed it so the holes appeared to be part of the scenery. He still wears it today. It’s a very happy tshirt.

    My favorite tee shirt is very soft and stretchy, and it has Pooh Bear on it (from the storybook, not the TV show version) with Piglet and a tree.

    A Tee my sister made for me, she painted a manga-ish character on a blanck white tee with very bright colours and glitters. She gave it to me as a present for no particular reason. And I love it!!

    My favorite tee would have to be from David and Goliath- it has a glow-in-the-dark monster with the words “I live under your bed” on them. It’s funny and I like monsters.
