    Schott has great products no doubt about that. When you buy a jacket they offer to sell you a T-Shirt at half price so I purchased one of their heavyweight pocket T's for $22. Great fit really hip looking. However normally $45. I want 6 of them.

    Will they last if I flat dry and are they worth the cost *long term ?

    Really surprised they don't offer grey color.

    High end T shirts is one egg i can’t crack. I know many of them are super nice and in the upper end tshirt market $45 is a comparitive bargain. It’s just that if i want to wear nice garments it wouldnt involve tshirts. An exception is i will go up to $45 for shop shirts. Anyhow, none of that answered the question remotely.

    There's an extensive upper-end white T-shirt thread around here somewhere. I've referred to it plenty, but now I can't find it.

    If you happen to find it please provide the link. Thanks

    I never thought I would be exploring $45 T- Shirt options but the fit is superb. Everything like sleeve length chest tightness EVERYTHING spot on but $45 for a T-Shirt ???? At $22 I would buy several.

    Thanks but the Duluth T's are very different looking than the Schott ones. Schott has thinner collars, slimmer fit, and shorter sleeves. Reminds me of Greaser James Dean type of look.

    They are stylized.

    I hang my washed and wet Tshirts on a hanger and air dry them. I find a good T lasts much longer without putting them in the dryer regardless of quality. Even my $4 Costco work T's last a long time.

    Agree.

    I air dry most of my clothing for that reason.

    For the most part yes. Colors keep for much longer.
