MLS-1021: Snug Fit - Jordan V-Neck
I recently purchased several different brands of grey t-shirts, to see which I liked the best, for wearing under open necked light blue business dress shirts.
This one is the winner, and I am about to get a bunch more.
It's all organic cotton. I also tried some polyester-cotton blends, which might look better when used for outerwear (sharper fit after washed), but which I can sense as a slight irritant to my skin. I also had some "bamboo" shirts, which I've since learned are not the natural bamboo fiber, but a manufactured fiber, like rayon, using bamboo and some harsh chemicals as raw materials, and which shirts also tend on the thin and droopy side. The other all cotton t-shirts I tried were not organic.
The v-neck on this one is what I was looking for. Some of the other t-shirts had less of a v-neck, too close around the neck. I did not try any t-shirts with a deep v-neck ... not my style.
The grey color on this was as shown and what I was looking for. One of the other brands came only in a grey that was too dark for my purposes.
The sizing on this was typical. I usually wear a large, but one of the other brands only fit me in the x-large size. This one fit fine in large.
The pricing on this was reasonable, given the excellent quality construction and organic materials. The big name brands are lower cost, but cheaper materials, manufactured in "sweat" (aka slave) shops, and not organic (so likely some sort of BT (GMO) cotton from Monsanto). The fancy brands can cost quite a bit more than this one, for no benefit that I am aware of. I didn't not however try the expensive brands.

MBB-280: CE Brief
I was never so jealous as when I took this pair of underwear out of the package! They are soooo soft and nice wide, covered waistband. My husband hasn't tried them on yet so I can't answer to fit or longevity but they feel substantially made.
MLS-1020: Snug Fit - Adam Crew Neck
I haven't had a shirt fit so well in as long as I can remember. The material and the fit are extremely comfortable, and it's great to think that not only am I wearing a USA made shirt, but an ecologically "friendly" one as well. It's worth every penny, and I'll be more than happy to continue giving bgreen my business.
