    My favorite t-shirt is a big soft old gold colored t-shirt … just like Jerry Seinfeld’s “golden boy” shirt! Hee.

    My favorite t is just a white thin, cotton, crew, capped sleeve t-shirt. It’s comfortable and lightweight. I wear it all the time and with everything…vests, tanks, sweaters, jeans, skirts and shorts.

    Gray basic tee, I cut the neckline binding off so it would have a loose scoop neck. Has family name across the front saying McKee University.

    My favourite t is a simple black one of my hubby’s. I like the longer sleeves on men’s tshirts, but I usually reinvent them to be feminine in shape.

    My favorite t-shirt is one my Mom bought me years ago. It doesn’t even fit anymore but I can’t bear to give it away. It has the logo from my favorite graphic novel on the front and it was a limited edition. The funny thing is – by the time I got it I thought I would never get it; my Mom bought it early and lost it before my birthday/Christmas….for 3 years! LOL Definately still my favorite!

    An old lilac T from Gap. It fits perfectly. But I still do miss my shirt I got at Expo ’88 in Vancouver. I wore that thing until it was like kleenex.

    It is a pink t-shirt that got a grease spot on the front. I painted a palm tree over the grease spot and now have a great shirt. It was one of those shirts you find that fit perfectly; long enough to cover the tummy and just low enough to look good and I did not want to lose it.

    must be cotton, round collar neck with simple design, sturdy which is after one wash the t-shirt still looks like one, long sleeves, soft and cool (not hot when wearing throughout the day).

    My favorite shirt is a limited edition shirt of my favorite band. It’s black and it’s got two unique portraits of the two lead singers in white. It’s very comfortable and I love wearing it.

    right now, my fave is an extra-oversized t-shirt i got from Zara store that’s made of 100% organic cotton. it’s white, and has a purple-ish handpaint-like graphic at the front part and underneath it says “recycle is in your hands”. i got it right after i recovered from chickenpox this year, and the oversize-ness made me feel so comfortable in it, since i had lots of scars all around my body. to this date, i still love it heaps!

    I don’t have just one favorite. But this is what I look for… v or scoop neck, soft cotton, and plenty of length in the torso. These qualities make a good T.

    I once had a khaki cammo style T, which I kept for over 10 years, so I suppose it must have been a favourite! In the end, it fell apart, so I used it as a duster!

    Wow, I have a few favorite T-shirts but I guess if I had to pick it would be a cotton crewneck, longsleeve, hot pink one I’ve worn to death! It will be a sad day when I can’t wear it anymore. I know I will have to find a new purpose for it besides the rags pile. Any suggestions!

    My favorite tee is a really old one. I used to where it when training, it had huge holes in it so I made a new tee out of it for my baby-girl. She can walk (six moths), but looks the part anyway!

    My favorite tee shirt is comfortable an fit my size. For printed and colour, I like earth colour; brown, green,… and I would like a picture to remind me of recycling.

    I like to wear big tshirts over my suits in the summer and my favorite is an all cotton, which is all I wear, that has a big betty boop on it, in combat gear. I love wearing strange tshirts;)
