  2. I vote DISPOSABLE T-shirt, for sheep shearing! ;-)

  3. T-shirts are the most practical shirt ever - easy to store and easy to care for - so I am no shirt snob. I say yes to t-shirts for wearing around the house, working in the yard and being on the water, etc.

  4. When we were in Charleston, SC a few years ago, we went to the Blind Tiger Pub, whose t-shirts, on their backs, proclaim "WE DIVIDE CHURCH AND STATE." The Blind Tiger is located between Church Street and State Street in Charleston! I couldn't resist buying one, and now wear it for gardening & weeding, when my back is my most exposed feature - haaha.

    Have to say, I do enjoy a witty/trenchant t-shirt, such as the one I saw today on a guy at the garden center - it said, "NOPE. NOT TODAY." I reckon they're like bumper stickers for people, instead of cars.

  5. Yes, a nice T-shirt is indispensable in summer. I have a strong preference for plain tees, I so dislike "shirts that say things", but others are free to disagree, of course. There are a number of good made in USA T-shirts available these days, from practical to well tailored and in appealing colors. It's a Golden Age, LOL

  6. I wear a t-shirt everyday but always with a collared shirt or some type a outerwear over it. On warm summer days, around the house, I might wear a t-shirt alone but I wouldn't go out in public wearing one. If I need a light short sleeve shirt, I'll chose a polo every time (with a v-neck t-shirt underneath).

  7. I won't wear anything less than a three button collared tee .
    I really detest the "vest" as an outside garment. And I won't abide screen printed clothes either .........

  8. Only to be worn around the house (e.g. gardening), by the pool or on the beach.

    Uniqlo's t-shirts, round and v neck, are great value. Go for pima cotton, plain colours and no silly slogans.

    Out and about, collared shirts and polos are much smarter.

  9. Tees are a staple! Depending on the type they can be dressed up. I wear necklaces and scarves with tees where I probably wouldn't wear a polo shirt.

    Personally I tend to prefer solid or striped tees.

  10. There are some new blended fiber T's that wick sweat better than 100% cotton T's and the neck doesn't stretch out! Your age and physical shape will determine how you carry off the T-shirt look! I wear them around the house, but prefer a collared polo shirt over the T in public!

    1. Anon 9:16, I share your thoughts exactly. I am an active person and there are summer days with a dew point so high that I am miserable in my polos. Although they were expensive, I've just purchased Eileen Fisher T shirts for days of high humidity. I travel down south often, and am counting on these shirts to help me look cooler than I feel. We'll see. They looked nice in the dressing room and a friend promises they will keep their shape with hand washing.

  11. My personal T wearing habits have changed with age and shape but when I looked at the pictures of these guys in their Tees and the settings and their activities, I couldn't find fault.

  13. Tees are fine, in the right place. I like them for camping. I do not like the ones that have printed sayings on them. Most are not funny, some are just nasty.

  14. I'm guessing the naysayers are not in the trades - lol! If my husband shows up to move your boat, chances are good he'll be wearing a tee shirt. And it will have a saying on it, either from a regatta, a marine supplier, or his company logo. Although, I did buy him a tee shirt in Park City that says, "If it's too steep, you're too old".
