    I like Witchery, Seed and Country Road for basic tees/singlets.

    (Country Road) I only buy the tees on sale, as they're a mass rip off if not.

    This goes against my general ethics around buying stuff, but I honestly just buy cheap tshirts from target and Kmart and wear them until they die. They generally last me 6-12 months. I've never found 'good quality' tshirts that last significantly longer than that anyway so I've given up. I'm not paying 500% more for a tshirt that will last maybe 50% longer.

    I agree with what you are saying. My issue is that some of the cheaper ones are made of very thin material that can be see through. I was hoping to find reasonably priced ones that are made of thicker or stronger cotton that aren't see through.

    Have you tried Bassike? I swear by their tshirts. They're the best $90 I've ever spent.

    I just can't with target or Kmart.

    I've bought several tshirts from Everlane. It's an American brand but they ship here directly. They have what they call radical transparency with respect to their pricing (so they show what it has cost to make at each level and what their mark up is). They also work closely with the factories that produce price the material and clothes in order to sure they are ethical and sustainable.

    All the tshirts are over a year old and lasted well. The only one that didn't was a heather grey in colour and it only lasted 2-3 months (better than many others I have bought!).

    Price wise even with the exchange rate, postage etc they are still quite reasonable as most of their tshirts are $15-18 US.

    All of their clothing is very basic and simple.

    Sometimes I feel you are the other me. I've been eyeing off everlane pants for years. I might take the plunge. They're supposed to be great and so are their silk shirts.
    @binnielici I just checked out their site and it says they don't ship internationally? did you buy through a mail forwarder?

    I've found the Supre singlets with the thick straps great quality. Mine have lasted a few years and are still going strong (they are faded a little, though). The white ones are see through, but the dark ones are great. Only thing is I'm not even sure if they sell them anymore. Well, the exact same ones anyway.

    They don't.... I keep looking every time I see a supree. They were the best singlets ever. Worth so much more than the $12 or whatever they cost. I'd pay $50 for one, if only they still had them
