    I love my A Perfect Circle tshirt. They’re totally my favourite band. It’s black with an image of a burning city with the lyrics ‘Counting bodies like sheep to the rhythm of the war drums’ written around it and a big APC logo. =]

    A restructured beige men’s shirt with a breast pocket. I gave it a wide crew neckline, shortened the sleeves and took the sides in to make it the PERFECT t-shirt. It was my dad’s in the 70s but it’s still in amazing condition and the quality of the t-shirt is unbelievable!

    One of my favorite t-shirts is a really old hippy dippy tie-die my husband (back then, he was just a friend) got for me at a Grateful Dead concert. It’s so cheesy, but I love it!

    I love my “newlands” tee shirt, it’s dark blue with simply Newlands written across the front, it’s a great fit and means something special to me. Newlands is the suburb I grew up in, it’s kind of like a secret code to me :)

    My favorite tee is my led-zeppelin shirt. I like the mens cut better because they are usually longer, the arm holes are bigger, and if they shrink in the wash it still fits me.

    My favorite tee shirt is an old worn and wonderful light grey shirt with a bicycle spoke on it. My dad wore it in the early 80s I think and then I’ve had it ever since. Since I never want it to expire I wear it infrequently, usually when I miss my dad. Love everything about it but mostly the memory…My dad doesn’t know I have it, he’d probably want it back!

    All of my favorite t-shirts have the same criteria – soft fabric and a bit roomy under the armpits (can’t stand t-shirts that are tight under the armpits!)
