5 Year Basic Tee is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 160.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from good for a month I bought three of the 5 year basic t's at the same time and they were all very comfortable go anywhere shirts but within 2 months they started to experience the wavy collar that everyone talks about. The one in gray seemed to be the first to get stretched out and worse of all three.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bring back the old 5yr Basic Tee Huge fan of Lululemon gear, and probably have bought a couple dozen items in the past handful of years. Very comfortable and functional for training or casual wear. I don't mind spending more money on the gear as long as the quality is there. Have had zero complaints on quality until I recently purchased 3 different colors of the 5 Yr Basic Tee. I have noticed that after just a couple months, the collars are now wavy and do not wear well as they had in the past. Unfortunate, as the 5 Yr Basic Tee was the first Lululemon item I ever purchased and used to be my favorite piece ... it's disappointing to see the quality drop off.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wavy collar Love the feel and fit. Not loving the wavy collar after a couple of as-instructed-to-the-letter washes.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Seemed to be good quality until washed Big fan of Lululemon in general: I own some long sleeve shirts that have held up nicely; however, when I bought the white 5 Year Basic Tee a couple months ago it began to wear down after a couple washes, especially in the neck which became "warped".

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing I'm a big fan of their apparel for yoga and expected the same quality in this T-shirt, but I have to say its quality is very mediocre. Only bought this shirt based on recommendation from my girlfriend, who swears by the brand. I have only used it for about 3 months and the neck seems to be super worn out/stretched. The colors of the T-shirt are worn out too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lulu... Please... Fix these shirts. Dear Lululemon, First let me just say, I'm a fan. I own literally thousands of dollars in pants, shirts, shorts, socks, etc. My absolute go-to over the years has been the 5 Year T, and 5 Year V. I have probably gone through 15 of them over a 5 year span. I started buying them about 4-5 years ago, and sadly, somewhere along the line (mid-2016?) the design/fabric/quality went south. What draws me to these shirts is the fit and feel. The fabric is really soft (silk-like), and out of the box they fit my body really well. I work out quite a bit, and like my shirts to hug my body. Unfortunately, I cannot buy these shirts anymore. In the hopes that you guys can get the train back on the tracks, I will explain why... 1) The Fabric has clearly changed. The shirts no longer hold their shape. They have always stretched when worn, but after a wash/dry cycle (at low temp), they would rebound perfectly. This is no longer the case. They now stretch permanently. Please go back to your supplier, and get the old fabric - It was so much better. 2) What's with all the drab colors and heathering? Your colors for men these days feel like - military. 3) Why change the shape of the V-neck? They were perfect before. The V was deep on the chest. Now they look like every other run-of-the-mill (i.e. Banana Republic, The Gap) V-necks, with a V that is clearly too high on the neck. 4) What's with the 1" hems on the sleeves/neck? 1" hems belong on Hanes underwear, not high end shirts. My suggestion - Fire the knuckheads who are behind these decisions. Don't feel bad, they'll get re-hired by Banana Republic, or Walmart George. Lulu became popular by offering clothing that is a cut above in terms of design, fit, and finish. Don't allow your business to get overly Corporatized.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from disappointed I buy a lot of lulu items for myself and wanted to get some nice t-shirts for my husband. I purchased this one hoping it would be one he could wear for years (since thats how long he wears his t's) but it has not held up very well at all. The collar is stretched out and a little wrinkled. He is not happy with it as well. A little disappointed at the quality for the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Recently Disapointed I've been wearing Lulu for several years and I swear by their products. I've convinced many hesitant friends coworkers to try Lulu and now they all own several items. The 5 Year Basic Tee has been my go-to item and I own multiple shirts. I am a bartender and I wear the 5 year in black for every shift. Recently I bought 2, but they have not held up. The collar has lost it's shape after only a couple wears, and there are wrinkles that seem to be permanent. The fit has also changed. I usually recommend this shirt to everyone I meet, but I will no longer do that unless I see reviews that the quality has improved

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very comfortable and disappointing I recently got into the Lulu game after years of hesitancy. Finally got myself one 5-year basic shirt and loved it so much that I bought 3 more. So far, I have the maroon, black, grey, and inkwell colors. I followed all washing/drying information and the collars are no longer holding shape. This happened after the first wash. I would understand if this happened over the course of 10 or so washes but one is very alarming. I should have picked a better Lulu product to buy as my first purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Shirt, not for 5 years.... The 5 year tee was a great shirt with a great fit when I first got it, but it doesn't take long before the collar stretches from washing and general wear. If they could change the material in the collar its a shirt I'd buy again and again.
