    My favorite T-shirt is a men’s Patagonia organic cotton one with a graphic of a dolphin holding an olive tree branch in its mouth—made to look like a “peace dolphin” basically. I cut out the neckband and trimmed the bottom to make the shirt fit me better.

    I like T-shirt and recycling, I love to have them both. My favorite T-shirt is a T-shirt without picture, I like plain T-shirt with various colour.

    A band tee: the beatsteaks best german band ever specially made for their open air concert in Berlin last year. It`s a printed bright yellow shirt from american apparel and so confortable that I constantly switch between wearing it to university or in bed.

    It’s a worn t-shirt that used to belong to one of my best friends’ aunt. It’s from an old label that used to put out Elvis Costello records. It reads, “F*ck art. Let’s just dance!”

    My favorite t-shirt is from my teacher/mentor’s days as a record store owning punk that she gave to me. It’s a Clash t-shirt that says “I want complete control.”

    My favorite t-shirt has lace sewn onto the hem at the bottom. It’s nice and long; so I can wear it underneath another shirt if I want to and let the lace peek out. Very pretty.

    long sleeve and washed a lot so its really soft. also since its a female cut and not a male cut, the shirt actually fits well through the torso.

    my fav. is a cute little black t, scoop neckline, little double layered ruffled cap sleeves, and a mock closure with buttons where a raglan seam would be on both sides. i makes me feel cute and girly when i wear it, usually with a bunch of antique silver broaches pinned on it _

    My favorite tee is one titled “Math Cheat Shirt” in which several math formulas and equations are listed . . . upside down so the wearer can look down and see them right side up! :) Love nerdy tees!

    Kelly green/white graphic tshirt earned for my brilliant turn as “a farmer” in the Missoula Children’s Theatre production of Jack and the Beanstalk—favored for the memories, the color and because you can’t beat the softness of a 23-year old tshirt!

    My favorite t-shirt is an old one, a Levi’s, I have it for 10 years, and I still like it. More I wear more softer it gets.

    My favorite tee was a men’s XL with an odd/cool graphic that I found at Goodwill for $1.50. I took it apart and sized it down based on a tee that fit me well and made it extra long. Even in a tee, I like something a little more tailored.

    my comfortable, old, green t-shirt – it’s long with puffy sleeves and a v-neck. I love it, but it’s getting pretty faded

    My favorite t is made from the softest cotton that has a slight sheen to it and just the smallest of bands around its crew neck.

    My favorite tee is from Pink Floyd’s 1987 tour, it’s super worn out making it really soft. I think I need to start washing it on the delicate cycle before it falls apart.

    My favourite t-shirt is big loose fitting yellow t-shirt. I love lounging around the house in it .
