Second only to the conundrum of jeans with no real fucking pockets, the second greatest clothing-related hardship in a woman’s life is a t-shirt that doesn’t suck.

Meaning: a t-shirt that isn’t uncomfortably short, skin-tight, made of a crappy material, has little useless baby sleeves, and is made in a sweat shop.

Once upon a time, Canada had Esprit. And their t-shirts did not suck, though they were a little on the short side and almost definitely made in sweat shops.

Can anyone recommend a solid basic t-shirt that properly covers your stomach, is nice and soft, emphasizes a smaller waist but doesn’t hug you constantly, actually covers your upper arms, and is made ethically?
