5 Year Basic V
I have been buying Lululemon 5 year basic v-necks for as long as I can remember. But the last two I've bought have washed horribly and like other comments have developed small holes around the belly button area. I have shirts that have lasted over 5 years which I still wear to date but the last two have lasted 3 months? If that. Not the quality I expect of Lululemon especially when Im paying $55 a t shirt.

Stretched beyond wearable
I'm bummed. This shirt just gave out on me. the neck is stretched twice its original size. and the whole thing wears like 2 sizes too big now. strange really. I'm bummed cause i love Lululemon and have a few work out shirts that are great. But this casual one doesn't hold up. What to do?

Stretched beyond belief
This shirt didn't meet my expectations at all. the shirt has washed terribly in its first wash and is unwearable. I feel terrible about the quality. Plus the color seems to fading on its first wash too. I have worn so many of lulu's products but this one is just terrible. Beyond Belief.

Very Disappointed - Poor Quality
Very unimpressed with the overall quality of these shirts. I am a huge fan of lulu lemon clothing and how their shirts fit. I purchased my first 5 year basic v-neck a couple years ago and it has stood the test of time. Over the recent months I have purchased close to $300 in 5 year basic v-necks only to be disappointed. After a couple of washes (following the labels instructions) I have noticed holes in the belly button region of the t-shirt. This is very unacceptable given that I am paying $55 + HST for 1 shirt. In conclusion, my 5 new shirts having holes in the same regions has left me very disappointed in the quality that lulul lemon strives for. I would have a very tough time referring anyone to purchase men's clothing from there since their price does not meet their quality. It is a shame because if there was better quality then lulu lemon would definitely deserve a 5 star rating. I have purchased $20 t-shirts years ago from other places that have outlasted my v-necks (after countless washes).

All Around T
I just bought this shirt on Saturday and wore it out for a dinner party and then again cycling this morning. What an amazing t-shirt. Best fit I have ever had with a shirt and love the material. I've been looking for a shirt I can do everything in and I think I found it with this t-shirt. I usually have a hard time finding clothes because I need the length of a XL but the overall size of a L. Lulu got it right with this one.

Great shirt. Great fit. Have about a 1\2 dozen of them.

bad fit description, good material
The shirts are nice and the material is soft. Unfortunately, the fit does not match the product description. It says the fit is athletic which is the same fit used to describe the Metal Vent Tech but this shirt had a slim fit not an athletic fit. I got 4 on sale and they are too tight even the tags on them say slim fit. Very disappointed that I was misguided by the fit description online and now I can't change them.

5 Year Basic V
The shirt itself is great the sizing not so much. Be sure to make sure each one fits before washing or you are stuck with it, when its a $10 t shirt its okay to throw it in the rag bin but when its $54 kind of tough to use it to clean the chain on your bike with. I bought 3 online tried one on quickly for size and threw them in the wash the one I tried on was the biggest of course and the rest small and smaller and they are all size large. 1 good, 1 a little too snug, and 1 belly shirt = 1 $170 T shirt. My kids are happy to have comfy nightshirts.

Bring Back the Old 5 Year V Neck
I don't like this newer version of the shirt. The "V" is too deep, and the shirt has changed shape... perhaps to be more inclusive of men with a little more booty in the midsection? Maybe Lululemon should do what other clothing stores do -- have "regular fit" and athletic or "slim fit" versions of the same product, so those of us who are slim and trim don't look like we're wearing a night shirt.
As many reviewers have also mentioned, the fabric is really thin. In fact it is SO thin that my chest hair POKES THROUGH it! Now THAT is weird, man!

They use to be better
Well I use to be a fan of the 5 year basic V t-shirt. But like a lot of people that have posted I agree. Lulu has taken a great product and turned it into something true to it's name "Basic" but left off the 5 year and changed the fit. Hopefully they'll read these posts and bring back the look, fit and quality.
