Just wondering what you guys do for basics like white tees, joggers and work shirts etc.

Used to always go Topman but their tees are now thinner than a sheet of paper. Then I moved over to H&M but they went the same way... ASOS are actually alright and have a really good fit, but I currently think New Look is the best quality, it's just hard to find them with stock! Burton are pretty good for work shirts

If none of below (especially if web based) just say...

For t shirts to wear around the house and sleep in and basically not look smart in I go and see the dodgy Asians in Manchester get 5 t shirts for 20 Hugo boss Lacoste Adidas Nike what ever make you want, obviously fake but who cares for that money for general use. Cheaper than 5 plain white t shirts for the likes of next cost and the quality despite being blag isn't bad at all.

Plain tees then Primark, cheap enough not to care about them; shirt-wise, then either TK Maxx if i can be arsed to hunt around otherwise Gap, Asos or if it's for work then Charles Tyrwhitt, Ted Baker or what ever i can find in House of Fraiser etc.

New Look for basics, (missus is a supervisor and get a 50% discount)

But 100% of the trousers etc are skinny fit which I hate, most of the stuff I wear I get online or at USC.

Buy online, some stuff from next. Quite few bits from jacamo too. They don't only do massive sizes like a lot of people think, and they have tonnes more to choose from

I've had loads of CK boxers in the past but quite a lot fade really quickly! Don't think they live up to the hype... I prefer just Topman ones or Bellfield which my girlfriend got me a couple of times that are really good quality.

Have to admit I don't buy clothes based on brands really, however I bought some "posh" jeans few weeks ago (average jeans for most I'm sure) and fit is so much better, and can feel the difference in quality

All my jeans are Calvin but I don't wear jeans often as I'm always at work and wear shorts.

Work t shirts are from primark.
