Who makes a top that is more beefy material? I don't like Liquid knit, and I'm sending back a Isaac concoction today. Some pima's work but sort of wrinkle.

Re: Thin and Sloppy material

Probably won't be seeing heavier fabrics until they start showing winter styles again........maybe August

Pima is usually 100% cotton and cotton always wrinkles.  Try Denim & Co., especially tops designed for winter.  Skip anything labeled "Perfect Jersey" as it rubbery, thin and clingy.  Anything French Terry is usually substantial.

Try Duluth Trading Company. Their tops are hefty.

I have a collection of Lands End 100% pima cotton tee shirts and they definitely don't wrinkle.  I wash in cold water, hang to dry, and they're generally ready to wear again.  But they're probably not "beefy" enough for OP.  Where I live, beefy is probably the last thing we're looking for in a tee.  I need light and cool rather than thick and beefy.

@shoesnbags    Isaac's tees seem to me to be getting progressive thinner and are very clingy.  I've sworn off of them.

@Ann n TN Don't put too much money down on L L Bean.  I've already thrown 3 Pima cotton T's in the trash.

They are just like Isacc's...........thin - clings - and shrinks.

 

I just ordered a couple from Lands'End - before QVC I bought most casual things from them and - slacks - still wearing.

Good Luck

Agree with Kachina. I too purchased Land's End tees and they're a great weight, and fit.
