And San Diego area is far from hot. They have one of the nicest climates in the country. No need for special shirts in San Diego.
Inland San Diego is really hot. 90s and up. While the city is cool, the microclimates change drastically.

Everywhere. Seriously dude, EVERYWHERE. If they sell clothes of ANY kind, you will find "t-shirts suitable for casual street wear".

Geez.

You can at least find plain AA t-shirts on Amazon.

The very best tee shirts, white ones, are by Hanes. Sold in multi-shirt packs at Wal-Mart.

I wear one to sleep in, during the day, under blazers. Truly a valuable item in my wardrobe.

There's a reason AA shirts were one of the go-tos for bands printing tour merchandise. I've done a fair amount of screenprinting as well as toured as a musician and sold merch. People really liked the AA tee shirts.

I also found them superior to shirts you'd by at target, kohls, etc. generally. People may think a shirt is a shirt, and that's fine. Not going to argue if someone else is fine with cheaper shirt. But to me they were noticeably different and worth it.

Tees and Hoodies are the things I'll miss from AA

X-rated? What?

I was looking for T-shirts suitable as street wear. I don't want to look like Marlon Brando in Streetcar Named Desire. Although, to be honest, I suppose looking like Brando could boost the quality of my life in a number of ways. I'd been to the big box stores, and every T-shirt was a blend, or made of thick cotton, or designed for teenagers with logos/slogans and XXL fits.

But I've since found just what I wanted at the Gap. It wasn't an obvious choice because in the past I didn't find lightweight tees there. But this time they had quite a variety of the shirts I'm looking for and I bought several. I'll buy more later this month.

First world problem solved.

ETA: As I said, it gets really hot here most of the year, which is why the lightweight aspect is so important.

AA will still carry on as an online business. It's just that they're closing down most or all of the brick and mortar stores.
