Bamboo = Rayon

I have had good luck with Anne Taylor white shirts as well. I do find that they all get yellow after a bit and I plan on them being good for only so long. I have to say my best find is a white T from "All That Jazz" in Littleton NH but the store closed in October and I am still wearing the shirt I swear I bought that shirt like five years ago

The yellow is caused by deodorant. I can't remember the ingredient, but it is the first one listed on almost every deodorant..... so not fair! I have to replace my t's every season.

T-shirts are like underwear. You need lots of them and you can't wear them for too long.

I've found the best ones were from L.L. Bean online. They have several kinds, some thinner, some thicker. Some roomier, some more fitted.

I agree that I have to buy a bunch of white tees every year, and throw them out when they get yellowed. But I hate doing that. I wonder if that Oxy Clean stuff would work?

When I was younger I used to dye or tie-dye them after they got discolored. But I'm like a few minutes from 40 now, so that might look a bit cheesy at my age!

I'm wearing my JCrew white T this afternoon and I'm very happy with it!

I bought all they had left of the Perfect T's in white, size small.... now all they have is xtra small. I want more....

Well, I'll keep checking back in and see if I can find some of the colored ones when they go on sale for $10 each... that's a deal!

Me and white t-shirts? Uh, no...much too clumsy here.

Good luck in your quest...those of us who are all thumbs will stick to dark and neutral colors.

I got what appears to be a nice white T at Bananna Republic in Manchester Vermont today for less than $12 I am wishing I got another one with a V-neck and a black one I'm not driving back tommorrow The size small is perfect!! I find it annoying because the Gap size small is giant and sometimes I would like a T to be somewhat fitted and body hugging.
