should have listened to the bad reviews Despite reading the numerous bad reviews, I went ahead and got 4 of these shirts. First time lulu purchase. The bad reviews are right. If I could give them zero stars I would. Collars turn into a loose and floppy mess despite washing on gentle cycle and hanging to dry. Believe the other reviewers called this bacon or wavy floppy mess. They were right. Disappointing because they fit like a glove and are great looking shirts. Just don't wash them, ever. Or else... $54 bucks a pop, such a waste. August 18, 2014
Loved these, but the quality... Let's start...I own two 5 year T's that have lasted nearly 4 years now. They look great with no holes or anything. Despite this, my newest 5 year Tee already has a hole around the belly button area. I noticed that other people are having this issue too. What can I do about it? I expect more from Lulu and most of my wardrobe consists of your clothes. I want to see a change in quality as I have a T shirt from H&M that has lasted twice as long with no wear, and it cost be $7.

Disappointed. I love the comfort of these shirts, but I thought they were "5-Year Ts," not 5-month. I have 10-year-old cotton T-shirts that have worn better. The lulu's neck lines get stretched out, and discoloration occurs in some. When I first bought these, I washed and treated them like gold. But after awhile, it became inconvenient to let them air dry, so I included them in my regular wash. I figured they be more durable than they are. I'd like to return/replace at least three of mine. Where can I do that? August 4, 2014
Not Impressed 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? July 22, 2014
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. July 16, 2014
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). July 9, 2014
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. June 23, 2014
great shirt Great shirt. Great fit. Have about a 1\2 dozen of them. May 31, 2014
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. May 21, 2014
