    Default Pima Cotton!

    In the past I bought a few shirts from lacoste and they were all 100% pima cotton. hands down the best material and they hold up in normal washes...dont even take them to the dry cleaners. i was wondering if anyone knew where i can get more pima cotton shirts (preferably v-necks). if you havent already i would highly recommend checking into the lacoste shirts i was talking about.

    Lol I'm looking for the same thing. I found one that was a Perry Ellis and it's the best shirt I've ever worn. I tried ordering some from Armani's site and they aren't bad, but nowhere near as comfortable as the Perry Ellis ones. They seem to have been discontinued though and I can't find them anywhere.
    If you need any help with web design let me know!

    I have a stack of those lacoste v-neck t-shirts. I also have a stack of the perry ellis pima cotton polo w/out button. Problem with the Perry's is they shrink way too much. not at first, but over time. I've been wearing both styles for over two years. Just go to Nordy's, you'll find somethin.

    Lacoste v necks are great. Their polo shirts shrink too much for me though probably because they are regular cotton.

    +1 and they start to look a little shabby after a few washes sometimes

    Sal I had no idea you cared about anything besides your wrist. OK, so you're already dropping $45 at Nordies for Lacoste. For five bucks more you can get James Perse trim fit v-neck from the same place. Its the best t shirt out there in my opinion and retains shape and softness like no other.

    If you wanna go sonic with a t shirt and even more so for jeans you need some Zimbabwe cotton. Little heavier but amazing. I have a t shirt from Fullcount that is amazing. Most high end Japanese denim is made with cotton from the big Z.

    I like the look of that loose weave. Problem for me is when i'm lean i'm still a 46 chest and 17.5 neck. So that couture euro sizing kills me. Even a silly robert Graham i gotta get in XXL then have it tailored. My t-shirts I have to get an XL or bigger then have them évasé if I want thenm to look right.
