My Favorite T-Shirt Brands for Every Budget by Pam Hetlinger | | Levi's jeans, & Other Stories T-shirt, leopard print mules, simple chic outfit, chic minimalist outfit

Basic t-shirts are one of those pieces I can live in for the rest of my life. They’re my go-to for an everyday chic uniform, and since you guys are always asking me where I get them from, I wanted to share my favorite t-shirt brands today. I don’t believe you have to spend a ton of money to gain hold of a good quality tee that won’t fall apart after one wash. Having gone through my portion of poorly constructed tees, I’ve narrowed down my favorites to a few brands that work for every budget. Whether you’re ready to splurge on that luxe designer tee or wanting to add something basic and affordable to the wardrobe, scroll on below for the best t-shirt brands.

& Other Stories

When it comes to affordable t-shirts, I don’t think anyone gets it as right as & Other Stories. After washing, they hold up pretty well and I like that they aren’t so sheer. They’re my favorite tees for wearing under blazers.



Re/Done is a brand I love for soft cotton tees with a vintage feel. The fit is super flattering since it’s boxy but still fitted, so it comes as no surprise that this is a West Coast girl favorite!

Hanes has been one of my favorite t-shirt brands for years, and they’re the perfect boyfriend tee. The boyish fit and baggy style are great for pairing with skinny jeans.


If you want a t-shirt with a little more structure, Everlane is the place to shop. I love their transparency policy – and I’m a big fan of their v-necks since it’s pretty wide and allows me show off layered necklaces.

Rag & Bone

Rag & Bone is one of my higher-end favorites when it comes to tees. The fit is so flawless on and the durable build can’t be matched.


I am also obsessed with Acne t-shirts even though they are crazy expensive for a basic item. You can tell that the quality is from a different world. I like the thicker weight and longer sleeves, which other t-shirt brands don’t usually offer.
