If you are trying to shop sustainable, slow fashion there can be some real challenges to making a successful purchase. Since the price points are generally quite a bit higher than the fast fashion you may be used to snagging on a 75% off sale rack, you are going to want to make sure you find something that is high quality and offers you a good fit and the right material to ensure your investment lasts a long time.
This My Green Closet video is definitely worth a watch. She goes into detail comparing some popular brands' basic tee shirts in a detailed and methodical way. From looking at measurements, fabric type and quality and sewing techniques to fit and comfort after washing along with an overview of each brand's environmental and ethical practices. It's very interesting if this is your jam!
These T Shirts From Everlane, Pact, Armed Angels, Kotn, and Organic Basics range from $20 -$39 and I would have loved to have seen Encircled's The Fair V Neck or The Fair Scoop Neck (see below) included in this comparison as they are a favorite sustainable brand of mine and these particular shirts run around $35 making them a great contender.
