Gap Favorite V-neck Tee

Une femme has learned that when it comes to casual cotton tees, it’s better to buy cheap and replace annually.  Even the pricier ones fade, yellow and/or stretch out with regular wear over a season.  I really like this year’s Gap “Favorite” v-neck tee. Unlike the spate of tissue weight tees in recent years, the fabric on this tee has a nice weight and body, the cut is fitted but not too fitted, v-neck is just deep enough to be flattering but not so much that it’s iffy for the office (under a jacket or cardigan), length is good (and available in Petite and Tall lengths) and it’s available in all of the neutral colors we count on.  Navy is a nice alternative to black.  At $12.50, a good value.

    Gap is good for basic t-shirts and stuff, and they often have a deal on if you buy 2 or more at once. I quite like Uniqlo too.

    I like and buy them too! Never understood $50 basic tees.

    Concur! Buy cheap, buy often is the right strategy for tees. And my current favorites are also GAP, if I’m not mistaken:).

    I agree…I replace my summer white tees every year.

    Love the V neck…it is so flattering for us height challenged gals!

    I do buy petite options when they are offered…Banana Republic has some nice tees too, but pricier…so your GAP finds are a win win in my books.

    Great recommendation! Was just thinking about my white tees and what needed replacement!

    Thanks for this information. I avoid tissue weight tees, so I’m glad to hear these are heavier.

    I love that this comes in tall lengths, but wish the sleeves were a bit longer. I’m currently wearing Chico’s elbow sleeve v-neck tees that I got last year on a buy-one-get-one-free sale; so they ended up being $12 each. A nice heavy knit fabric too.

    I wish we had GAP in Austria. You are so priviledged. 🙂

    I have two black Gap tees, exactly as pictured, as well as a long-sleeved version. Very good shirts indeed.

    I’m really sick of tissueweight t-shirts.

    I love the neckline on that T. Collarbones are flattering on just about anyone and any piece of jewelry has a chance to shine. I never thought of the GAP as a source but I’ll check it out.

    I’ve been wearing Gap tees for years. They’re definitely great, and since I wear a lot of white tees, I don’t feel bad if I have to toss a stained one.

    I happened to be in the mall today and decided to go into The Gap and check these out. I tried them on and decided to get two v-necked white ones. They were marked $14.00. When I got to the check out, they only charged me $8.00 for each.

    I also bought two white tank tops and a pale pink one at Chico’s I had tried them last year and liked the fit and durability. They are considerably more–$24/each, but what can you do?

    I usually do throw away white t’s from the previous summer. I have checked and my Chico’s tank from last year is still ok.

    Long sleeved Gap t-shirts are my fall/winter staple for weekends at our farm.

    I might give this one a try but tend to avoid V neck tees — a jewel neck is better for me.

    There are reasonably priced T´s that last a year, elsewhere too. For me, Repeat ( Danish ), is a trustworthy brand.

    I was needing some new tees, and as soon as you said they had them in tall (I have quite the long torso), I was sold! Thanks for sharing!

    Gap and Old Navy have been so dicey the last few years. I’ll have to check this one out. Thanks for the recommend! Did you see that Gap is closing 200 stores in the US this year?

    We finally got GAP in Sydney, but prices are at least double what they are in the US – so frustrating!

    You have the best recommendations! Spring is here and tees are on my very short list.

    Would like to add that they’re not so easy to find in the stores – they sell out very quickly, particularly the white ones. But, they have them online, once you know your size.

    If you are in the UK, good old M n S are doing quite nice cotton Ts at 2 for £10 (£6 each if bought separately). Not a bad and good colours.

    That should be ‘not a bad fit’, typo sorry!!!

    I bought a nice three quarter length sleeve T at Chico’s today. It has some spandex in it. I would have to go back upstairs to check the price. I’ve always thought Chico’s things were a bit pricey for the iffy quality, but I’ve been very pleased with their t-shirts–and their jeans. Unfortunately, their fabric for other items are not always the best.
