    My favorite t-shirt, is a bold blue color and doesn’t fade even though I’ve washed it a ton. It is still soft and stretchy and is long enough to cover my belly when I raise my arms. I like long torso shirts because no one needs to see my ‘love handles’.

    Classic white, fitted V-neck shirt (i.e.-Hanes or Fruit of the Loom). You can throw it on with anything – Jeans, dress jackets, sports jacket, shorts. You get the picture. I love simplicity.

    My favorite T is from the Bitten line at Steve and Barry’s. It is green with a birdcage and birds of several different colors screenprinted on it. I wear it all the time!

    My favorite Tshirt is one I’ve had since 1985. It’s a company blood red softball team t-shirt, the name and logo of the team was “psychobats” with the white lettering shaped like a bat with wings carrying a bat. 25 years later, this shirt is paper thin and buttery soft.

    My favorite is all about the fit – It’s long and therefore elongates my short body, and fits snuggly, accentuating my curves. Perfect.

    Most of my favorite Ts are to tight or teenybopperish for this 30something year old body… so Recycle A Tee would be my new favorite T!

    It is a hospital scrubs green and the softest cotton ever. My sis-in-law gifted it to me while pregnant because my skin was so sensitive, I was getting rashes. I have never had a t-shirt so soft; I still wear it, even though it is quite a few sizes too big.

    My favorite t-shirt is one that i got when i graduated high school. its sky blue and says seniors on the front and 08 on the back. I used it as a pillowcase for a few months, it got dirty, and then i went to the ABC no Rio printshop in L.E.S. N.Y.C. and silkscreened an image on it with one of their graphics. it has their address on it now!

    My favourite T-shirt is one that I have had for years. I bought it at a garage sale for 10 cents. It is yellow and says ’Don’t blame me I voted NDP’ (it’s a Canadian thing I think). Anyway, it has always been such a flattering T-shirt style on me. I really enjoy wearing it.

    My favorite shirt is a power blue organic cotton shirt from H&M. It has a black line drawing of a chessboard and a girl who vaguely reminds me of Alice from Alice in Wonderland. The shirt looks great with a black bow tie, and I love pretending I’m Alice when I wear it.

    My favourite t-shirt has long since passed away. It was given out free with the Dead Kennedy’s EP “In God We Trust” . I loved this tee and wore it until it was held together with safety pins, which was quite appropriate really. :) x
