The Perfect T-Shirt

I love tweaking as much as the next guy, but I also love arriving at a place of contentment, where I can set it and forget it.

Especially when it comes to clothes.

I have an extensive t-shirt collection, but even my favorite t-shirts seem to shrink or lose their luxuriousness over time.

I'm fairly tall and lean (and seemingly getting taller via all that yoga), so I have a hard time finding shirts that meet both my length and size requirements. Mediums tend to be too tight and/or too short, while Larges tend to be too baggy.

Fortunately, I've just settled on the perfect t-shirt:

The 50/50 Shirt by American Apparel

These shirts are ringspun, 50% polyester, 50% cotton. They are high-quality, super comfy, and come in a variety of colors. The heather hues are particularly handsome. The Medium strikes the perfect balance of length and fit on my six-foot-two, 180-pound frame.

They're a bit expensive at $20 a pop on American Apparel's website, but you can buy a three-pack there for 20% off, and Amazon has some color/size combinations for a fraction of the price.

Arriving at a place where I no longer need to think about something is a great feeling. Whenever I need new t-shirts, I'll be going straight for the American Apparel 50/50. Get 'em.
