Not true at all. Typically a Hanes or Gildan T-shirt is of the tubular design, which is lower cost and doesn't contour to the body as well (since the human body is not a tube). A Ralph Lauren T-shirt, on the other hand, uses two flat sheets of jersey fabric sewn together (hence the seams on the sides); this design is considered more upscale than the tubular design since it contours to the body better.

Huh??? You're idea of "upscale" or "dressing up" is odd. See your original post above again. You weren't talking about shape, you were talking about dressing/up down. 2 seams mean nothing. Armani makes tees with no seams.

My least favorite items are neckties or turtlenecks. Also those silly looking ascots.

BTW: Just wanted to add, I've only worn long pants about 3-4 times in the last 6 years, and then only when visiting religious sites (ex. Fatima), that require them. I love casual wear!

We weren't discussing graphic tees.

Well, I learned something new today.

After reading your post I went to my closet and checked my T-shirts. All of my Tommy Bahama shirts have seams up the sides and most of my cheaper t-shirts do not. My Volcom and Hurley T-shirts are the tubular design. Surprising since they are fairly expensive.

Thanks for the information!

Well, aren't you the angry fashion police? I must have missed the post where you excluded "graphic tees" from the discussion.

Have a glass of wine...or six.

Fave: my Tripp pants and the other scant amount of baggy and real relaxed fit jeans and khakis I have- especially cargo pants, pedal pushers. Hitop shoes, trench coats, blacks, reds, dark colors. Long sleeve button downs, hooded sweatshirts, graphic tees, long(crew at the shortest) socks, sunglasses; nice ones, not those crap aviators or chunky frame things. Net sleeves, my spiked collar, straps and chains, beanies and snap-backs. Pretty much all I wear.



Hate: stupid skinny jeans that have infected fashion, polo shirts, gaudy looking shoes, like Jordans and weird looking space man sneakers made of canvass or whatever with the extra wide soles, light colors, pleather.

Pleather is a good one!
