I have around 7 or 8 in general rotation at the moment, not to mention a couple of extra themed designs for special occasions (such as my air tattoo one which i'll wear to the show).

About 20, and I reckon half of them are uniqlo by now. :lol:
I usually cull the old or naff ones every now and then to make room for new ones, but I'm gonna have a damn hard job the next time it's due! :slol:

£10 postage for an entire person isn't that bad

I probably have around 20 and I cycle about 10 regularly but some of them I've had for 5-10 years.

Despite being able to put whatever I want on any shirt I want I'm conscious of needlessly making them, actually I very rarely buy and tend to use up ones that for some reason haven't be used for customers. I've made two uniform tees with pockets and that's about it, the rest are B-stock, rejects or odd sizes that weren't used or sold, so I just keep and wear those. The American Apparel shirts I mentioned a couple posts ago I actually bought for myself but also to sample them as I haven't bought any fancy tees in an age.

Tbh they weren't a big deal compared to much cheaper shirts with the same blends, the the AA standard tee was ridiculously long. Nice colours though. Gildan do really nice colours too so I probably won't spend the same money again for a while. I have to tuck the bloody thing in!

The triblend track shirt was nice for winter but again there's a Gildan brand that cost less than half as much, and I'm talking trade prices. And now it's the same company anyway.

Uniclo tees are nice but obviously they don't cost as much as they charge, I'm always tempted to pick up and print now and then but it's hard to justify with my own stock. I also tend to get thicker tees with lots of features from somewhere like FatFace once or twice a year because you can't really buy that stuff wholesale or make it without being a half decent seamster.

I mean things like stitch detailing, woven textures/stripes rather than printed, embroidery, appliqué, alternative cuff/collar/bottom hems etc.

We call this "detailing" so not sure why I said features but similar thing. :shifty:

Thanks, couldn't resist at that price, a pocket print gundam with the brown dude poking out (one of the baddies) and the splatoon grey tee with the ink runs across it - I already had my eye on that. Don't really get any of the "meme" Gundam tees, I just like cool robots. But I prefer to avoid wearing white or black - it doesn't stay white for long and I made a vow to stop wearing dark clothes all the time a long time ago. And I already have an official white splatoon tee, although it's really thin (Nintendo partner with Bioworld, I don't think their stuff is that good honestly). Just a Fruit of the Loom valueweight I think. Uniclo standard is much better.

Ad - you start to shorten words after repeating them hundreds of times in your day job :lol:

Haven't bought a single printed tee since my uniclos in kyoto 2011 I think so I waited 8 years!! They are quality so happy paying £15 for 2x. Pocket print will be good for casual workplaces etc.

Yeah they have really nice shirts that look so classy yet casual enough to wear outside of work imo.

Speaking of shirts, anyone got any recommendations for cool cotton ones that work are good. It regularly hit's 30 Plus here but I want to still look smart. Less ironing the better as well.

Too much to ask?

No idea curls, but you can buy two men for £100 and wear their clothes.
