Hi stylish roady types...

I seem to be stuck with paying silly money for these at the moment, with Gant tees at around the £35/40 mark. In the past there used to be some middle ground with Gap and M&S, but lately they seem to be just as poor quality as the supercheap supermarket ones.

I have always thought along the lines that the prices at the top end were compensated by longevity, better material etc (bit like debates about Assos & Rapha etc in terms of cycling gear) in that they didn't go and lose all their shape after a couple of washes.

Are there exclusions to this rule out there?

    If you have a Costco near you, their Kirkland Signature T's are the best I've found. Used them for years.

    you'll want to stain the front with Jamaican blue mountain coffee before wearing it , of course.

    Fruit of the Loom 'Premium Heavyweight' are pretty good (much better than anything I've seen at Gap for years).

    You have to add VAT and delivery to the prices on this site, but still cheaper than Gap even if you only order one.

    If you just flag it as spam, when 5 people have done it, it vanishes. Which is why it now looks like you have resurrected this thread.... :D

    Would it help if 5 people flagged his post? Would that get rid of his post and make him look less of a tool for resurrecting an old thread?

    That said, should we just leave him to live with the embarrassment?

    Then it would look like I'd resurrected the thread to give a warning to others.

    On the other T-shirt thread in the MTB forum the spammer got flagged then posted again to say they were not a bot. Which also got flagged and both were still there a few minutes ago.

    Needs 5 people to flag it before it vanishes.

    Even if they are a person rather than a bot they should pay for their advertising, is this a point that was lost on them?

    Why are you resurrecting a 9 year old thread? Are you selling something?

    Bloody spam bot.

    If had I realised I needed to be that sharp I would have had razor blades for breakfast rather than cereal.
