Cheap Thrill: H&M MEN'S Shirt
It pays to circulate at H&M.
Once when I dared veer from the women's department into girls' accessories, I found a $3 pink, studded bracelet. It fit perfectly.
This last trip, a pass through the men's section yielded this seagreen, button-neckline tee. It was all of $9.95.
Heathered and made of the fabric trifecta of poly-cotton-viscose, this bad boy is soooooft. It reminds me of the great American Apparel tri-blend shirts but without the soul-suckingness of its wacky sizing. Yes, H&M is wildly inconsistent in that department, too, but AA is really bad. It must stop using mannequins made of toothpicks as fit models. C'mon, young women have enough issues let alone thinking that weighing more than 50 pounds automatically deems you "XL." I am most certainly not an XXL, despite all the bacon-wrapped hotdog appetizers I ate last weekend.
Interestingly, while the H&M men's shirts were cut quite wide and boxy, the XS was slim and fitted and looked like it was made for a chick.
