Summer is around the corner and it’s time to whip out those T-shirts laying forgotten in the closet or bottom of wherever for the past few months (if you live in a cold country) or maybe it is just time to buy new ones to stock up.
Durability vs cost
Have you ever bought an T-shirt only to find out that after the first wash, it’s a sorry shadow of what it was when you bought it? Now, if you did not spend much on the shirt then this is usually not a huge problem, sometimes expected even. The problem is when you had invested a reasonable sum and going by the ‘durability per cost’ you expected to get from the shirt, it looks like it might not measure up and may have a smaller ‘shelf-life’. This is why it’s important to consider the expected durability of the T-shirt when purchasing it and if unsure not spend too much on buying one when trying to test the waters of a new brand as it were. A good way to get the best bang for your buck that you can given the circumstances.
Do you like bright colours? or would you like to be inconspicuous as possible? These are things to consider. Everyone is different so some colours in general are more flattering than others. The last thing you want is to get a top with a great design but the colour makes it almost unwearable. The reason for purchase also is important as wearing a white shirt for a camping trip, though doable might not be the best idea if you intend to get dirty except looking presentable afterwards is not an issue. If that is the case then you don’t need to worry about this.
Design is another factor that pretty much depends on you as an individual, if you like loud designs or more conservative designs you should consider this as well. Here again the purpose for the T-shirt will have an influence, a casual everyday look for the office or a day at the beach (here you probably have free reign to wear any design you like) are all factors to consider.
