Wanna nice T-shirt? Buy 'em at Costo and JCPenny--all of 'em are soft, thick, and comfortable. None of 'em are $32.50 each. Of course you can pay more for a t-shirt, that doesn't make it worth more--just means it costs more--those two are not the same thing.
search
Think about it this way: at which point does paying more for a t-shirt reach the point of diminishing returns? 'Cuz buddy, there's someone out there who's dying to sell you a hundred-dollar t-shirt, and they're not look'n for smart guys--they're look'n for dumb guys with credit cards. You sure you know which one you are?

It's very humorous to see the pseudo-intellectuals come out in force to display their baseless illusions of authority on the matter of value. It's one thing to compare a commodity in value to other commodities in its class, but to come out and say that something cannot possibly be worth a given price with no understanding or appreciation whatsoever of the qualities that differentiate said product from another is very ignorant and annoying. I'm not necessarily defending this drop because I have little knowledge on the product or its or its competititors but if you're not bringing solid information to the table on what a better buy is and why, do me and the rest of the people who are trying to move past the illusion of knowledge a favor and shut the fuck up because you're just adding noise to the signal. Nobody cares that you don't think a T-shirt could possibly be worth $30 solely because you don't put any value in T-shirts - demonstrate your supposed wisdom and show me what the best value in T-shirts is and why this product doesn't justify its price in comparison.

The funny thing about imitation is that it is both the sincerest form of flattery and yet the lowest form of wit... if you're going to embarrass yourself by revealing you've been brooding over my mean remark, you should at least avoid making your edit a suicide by words.

Okay so I got a pair of review t-shirts in today, and I'm wearing one of these right now. Quick initial impressions: Overall, I like the substantive (weight) and slubby (texture) feel of the fabric. People used to cotton t shirts with a smooth hand feel might need some getting used to here--I think I'd compare these to raw denim (vs. washed) in terms of feel. However, in all honesty, if you're a raw denim kind of person, the comfort will not bother you. I had been apprehensive about Velva Sheen because many reviews online state that the fabric is _very_ uncomfortable--while it might feel a little stiff at first, I don't really feel it now (I'm 7 hours into wearing it today). About fit: Velva Sheen sizes usually run a size small. Normally, I wear XS or an S in t-shirts (mostly fast fashion brands like Uniqlo), and I like a fairly close cut fit in my tees. I should have checked the size chart here, because (I think) Drop has altered the sizing for these so the sizes are more familiar to people--that is to say these run fairly true to size imo. I don't have a size S to compare against my Uniqlo S, but the Drop x Velva Sheen M is definitely larger than the Uniqlo S. My recommendation is to go with your usual size. About the cut: these are _not_ boxy like many t-shirts out there, which is slightly surprising to me since this is a tubular construction. /shrug I don't think I'm in a good place to comment about the fit otherwise since I think I chose the wrong size. Photo showing length--my hand is where the waistline of my jeans is to give you an idea of the body length of this t-shirt. It's fairly longer than most t-shirts I own, which I personally like. I don't like it when I bend down and people can see things that I don't want them to see (most of the time). /shrug
search
Overall verdict: I really like these, and will wear them mostly with raw denim + boots or other generally rugged feeling apparel. When it's extremely hot out and I choose to wear light chinos, for example, I'll reach for the cheaper Uniqlos. Is this a replacement for super cheap t-shirts? For me, no--there is a place for cheap t-shirts, and this will not replace that (eg. using as undershirt). Also especially being a student it wouldn't make financial sense to _completely_ replace them anyway. But it's definitely one of those things that I can see myself reaching for more and more over time, and eventually I'd like to have more quality than quantity in my wardrobe. I will update the review as I wear these more. I'll keep one untouched and I'll only wear one of the two t-shirts so I can compare a worn tee vs new. I'm also interested in post-wash measurements--really hoping these shrink haha. Update: I compared the sizes of the t-shirt pre- and post-wash. I was expecting some sort of shrinkage--I put it through torture--hot washer cycle followed by high heat tumble dry. Nope, no shrinkage. However the fabric has softened and conforms better to the body. The correct size would have been just perfect imo. The neck has stretched out a little. Uploading photos for comparison.
  1. No shrinkage in sleeve or shoulder.
search
2. Overall no shrinkage whatsoever. Maybe 0.25" on the length, but nothing noticeable.

3 The neck has stretched though:

I don't get all the sticker shock. Amazon sells a similar Tommy Hilfiger Tee for $24.50, except the TH is mostly Polyester and made in China. https://www.amazon.com/Tommy-Hilfiger-T-Shirt-Original-Sleeve/dp/B079WB5LRQ?th=1&psc=1 $33 for a US-made, US-sourced Tee seems like a bargain by comparison.

The thing about Velva Sheen is they run small and also shrink, at least that's my experience.

I'd heard the same thing, which is why I've not even tried any on. But these t-shirts seem to be a more standard (if that can be said) fit. At least, right out of the package. Can't comment yet on shrinkage after being washed.

I wore one of these as an undershirt yesterday after a wash & dry and it wasn't tight at all.

I typically wear a M and sometimes a L top. 41" chest, 36" (size 33 pant) waist. I would be tumble drying it to get any remaining shrinkage out. I don't want a snug or slim fit nor do I want to be swimming in it. Would L be my best bet?

I was pretty skeptical of the price of a pair of raw denim jeans. Eventually, I ended up getting a pair. But there's no way in hell someone's going to convince me that these shirts are worth this asking price. Pretty outrageous. I'm sure they feel nice and all but I can't help but to see this as something that's unreasonably higher in price than other plain tees from practically any other venue while commanding practically zero noticeable differentiation other than "it feels nice."

I get that it's american made and i would pay extra to support american economics, but still, 32.50 for one cotton t-shirt? Granted it costs maybe 50 cents to a dollar to make a t shirt, and since t shirts are made in bulk, I still feel like its upcharged even accounting for the labor. Maybe if it wasn't located in southern california it might've been sold cheaper.

You're using raw material costs while ignoring about a thousand other steps that go into production. The raw cost of an iphone is no where near it's retail cost and yet many don't have a problem with that. Also, there are many types and grades of cotton, not all are going to be used in garment production and only the higher level stuff makes it into brands like this.
