I get mine at Old Navy. They usually have a good color selection & a choice of v-neck or crew. And sometimes they have sales, like buy 2 or 3 for $20. (At least where I live they do- I would assume most ON's have about the same stuff/sales?) Might have larger color selection online.

Wonder Wink makes a really nice long sleeve undershirt.

I bought some at Walmart last winter. Long sleeved, thin material but insulating, I think it's their version of underarmor. They fit well and don't wrinkle easily. I bought white and royal blue, can't remember if they had other colors.

I have bought some at old navy but don't really like their material. When I push my sleeves up they end up wrinkled and can get too hot.

I bought a thin long sleeve from Wonderwink that started to unravel after one wear. The hems on the sleeve cuffs and the bottom let loose.

It also wound up with holes in it along the torso. I mended it but my skills are lacking in that dept. it looks like Franken-shirt now.

Such a shame! That shirt is really comfortable but now it looks awful. Have you had problems with that too or did I just get a bad one?

I always wore WalMart for both short sleeves and long sleeves. Love them, great colors, cheap and hold out at least a season or two.

Greys anatomy has nice long sleeve shirts. They're thin and light weight. Some of my coworkers wear them and rave about em!

I always used long-sleeve T-hirts from Lands' End. They may be a little more expensive, but they last for years. I have some that I've had for 5 years or longer.
