    Wardrobe staple - Basic Tee's

    I'm always buying new white and grey t-shirts from H&M, Topman, GAP etc but they either discolour or go out of shape after a couple of washes. Can anyone suggest an alternative? Obviously I don't want to break the bank so under 30 would be good.

    I haven't had too much of a problem with GAP tees...you could try Uniqlo? I've got a few of their premium cotton ones and they seem good quality, although I haven't had them all that long. If you want to go a bit higher end, I've always liked the look of COS t-shirts.

    I usually go for H&Ms Basic collection of t-shirts. For the price I find they deliver quite nicely, and to be one of the few things H&M makes with a consistent quality and fit.

    I've been meaning to try out some of Marks & Spencer's t-shirts, as I've heard they're supposedly good value for money. Has anyone tried them?

    What is the fit like of Gap t-shirts in comparison to Uniqlo?

    I have a few Zara ones in rotation which are very good at 10

    I got a grey marl t-shirt, relaxed fit one in penneys (primark) and is actually one of the best t-shirts I have bought all year. It cost 2.50! I own a couple of zara/topman ones and they went out of shape in weeks.

    Pretty similar, I'm a 37" chest and I've got lots of GAP ts and a few of the Premium Cotton Uniqlo ones, both in small; I'd say the Uniqlos are a touch slimmer but there's not a lot in it.

    Primark tees can be pretty decent too - I got an acid-wash burgundy one with rolled sleeves for 6 which is nice

    Not worn / washed it yet though but I think it will hold up
