The perfect T-shirt

I bought this white T-shirt from Seed Femme. I then went back to the QVB shop and bought two more, another white and a grey (the latter doesn't seem to be available online). It's the perfect T-shirt to wear with jeans.

Perfect because it's a great length and shaped at the waist so that it's slouchy without being boxy. I cut the tab detail off the sleeves as it seemed a bit fussy to me and so that I was in control of how far I wanted the sleeves rolled, if at all.

It's hard to find good-quality T-shirts as manufacturers often try to fit all shapes and sizes into one style, which ends up not flattering anyone. I like my T-shirts fitted without being clingy, long enough so I'm not doing the midriff thing and well cut around the shoulder and armhole or the T-shirt makes me look bigger than I am.

Why are basics so often hard to get right?
