I seem to buy an excessive number of striped t-shirts year after year. As it is, I really struggle with t-shirts because I cannot stand it when tees get twisted seams in the wash and let's be honest, who wants to handwash their t-shirts?!? I don't mind hand washing linen and silk, but I draw the line at t-shirts. I still wait for the day when I can find a great fitting t-shirt and it doesn't warp or twist in the washing machine. Stripes highlight the twisting and warping so I am happy that this one by Banana Republic has survived thus far. Since I bought it on final sale for $10 last month, it is even more of a score. And speaking of scores, these striped solids have also proved themselves very comfortable. I am still a bit worried about tackling the hills of San Francisco when my friends visit this summer, but I am getting more and more comfortable with each wearing.
