Hey guys,

I'm looking to get some new clothes, just some plain T-shirts and V's. I know Michaels sells plain shirts for ~$5, but I'm looking for some kind of polyester/cotton blend. Can anyone recommend a site that sells cheap T-shirts (plain or otherwise)?

I don't have any recommendations for sites to buy bulk cheap clothes, but bear in mind that new cheap clothing may not be ethically produced or environmentally sound. These days I try to buy most of my clothes second hand.

When I do buy brand new, it's usually things like wool socks or outdoor gear that's not common secondhand, and of course underwear.

Both good points- I need to do another round of thrift store shopping. Typically I don't find the kind of shirts I'm looking for at thrift stores, I'm after a thin material.

Since thrift stores have already been suggested, I will throw out walmart.com and kohls.com clearance.  It is hit or miss for environmentally responsible clothes there (I have two pairs of certified organic cotton workout pants from walmart that are 6 years old and finally need replacement, but they don't seem to carry these anymore).  Both have free shipping on orders over $50 and easy returns in case things don't fit or you're not happy with the quality.

We've been buying t-shirts from here for years.  My husband likes the Hanes Beefy T no pocket shirt.  CheapesTees.com  and they very frequently have good sales and/or free shipping on orders over a certain dollar amount.  We each usually make a list, go over the kids needs then place a fairly good sized order in the late Spring or early Summer and are good to go for another year.

American Apparel will definitely have what you're looking for, but they aren't particularly cheap unless you can buy them wholesale.  They're ethically made though.
