Somewhere in any man’s closet there will be at least several of these tucked away among the piles; the basic plain grey marl t-shirt is a timeless classic. With all the morbid news of the credit crunch and everyone having to tighten their purse-strings, it has never been a better time to delve into your hoards of t-shirts and pull out one of these to accompany almost any outfit.
So, after looking you realise that the t-shirt you had in mind has been chewed-through by invisible moths/hamsters/siblings and perhaps it’s time to invest in a new one (or a few) to spruce up your wardrobe – here are our picks for your perusal.
First off, we have the All Saints Chatchi High Crew T which features a contemporary low neckline and discreet darts stitched outwards diagonally from the neck to provide the fit that has become synonymous with the brand. This is currently on sale for £24 (reduced from £30) available from All Saints directly in their online store.
For the more frugal amongst you, the Topman Grey Marl Crew Neck may hit the spot with a very slim fit and offers incredible value at £6 individually, or 2 for £10. This is probably one of the best known deals on the high street and extends to their equally excellent value baseball tees.
Our bargain basement find of the week though, has to be the New Look Grey Crew Neck which provides a slightly more comfortable, looser fit than the Topman version and is priced at an astonishing £4. I came across these whilst wandering around the new Westfield Shopping Centre in West London (so you can find these here as well as online). It’s worth noting that they also stock a very well-fitting deep v-neck tee too with a chest pocket and sleeve strap detailing for the same price.
