    My favourite tshirt is dark navy, with a scoop neck and tiny frills around the neck. It goes with pretty much everything, and its just loose enough to be comfy, but fitted enough to dress up too.

    My favorite t-shirt is red with black tiger stripes all over it. I wish it were a little softer, though.

    My favorite tee shirt is super soft, a muted green, with a logo that says reading is sexy.

    My favourite t -shirt was a lovely shade of green, made in cotton and lovely and soft with small black cat motifs on it . I say was because when we moved to Bulgaria it has seemed to have gone missing and I have not found one as good anywhere.

    Fickle as I am, I love a new t-shirt I bought last week – off white cotton, long, with giant polka dots. Loveliness.

    found at a thrift store, it was yellow and soft after obvious years of wear. the scene was a simple silhouette of palm trees and a sunset. it said “tahiti” in small letters. i bought it as a teenager and wore it into the ground. wish i still had it though!

    my favorite t-shirts are all my boyfriend’s. I think his canary yellow x-men shirt that goes great with my purple skinny jeans is my current favorite. Although he did get a few new ones for Christmas so maybe I’ll have a new favorite soon. ;)

    My favorite tee has a marvelous fit, not too tight or too loose. It is longer than a regular tee and has a v-neck. I wish I would have bought one of these tees in every color!!

    I have a much-loved dark blue Moog Synthesizer t-shirt that I picked up in Dublin, Ireland in 2003. It still looks good despite many wearings and washings.

    It’s a shirt for a kind of obscure band (but with one of my favorite musicians) – but what makes it special is that my best friend got it for me and sent it to me. The band was short lived, but I have the shirt to remember they existed.

    My favorite t-shirt is one of my grandfather’s from the Sea Scout program. He volunteered to help inner-city kids from New York learn to sail. Two of his graduates later went on to West Point. The t-shirt has an iron-on stamp in the back with his name from a nursing home he was in while he rehabilitated from knee surgery. It’s light blue with a great black logo, super soft from a million washings, and when I am having a stressful day or have been worrying about things going on, I know that if I wear it I’ll feel a little better no matter what.

    Mine is just a standard comfy grey American Apparel tee which I screenprinted a fox onto.

    It would have to be a tee stolen from an ex beau…an old punk T that once was black but now years later faded and almost illegible has been incorporated into a messenger bag which will probably out-live me.
