Default E. Carib T-Shirts

I'm going to Nassau, St. Thomas, St. Maarten 9/19/04
Where can I find Quality souvenier T-shirts? I'm looking for something that won't wear off after washing it or looks cheaply made. I don't mind spending more money, just don't like embroidered shirts. (I used to work at a touristy shop in Florida and am aways picky about my T-shirts.) Thanks.

Try Del Sol. They change colors in the sun! Are a little bit more pricey but look great. I know they hav one in St. Martin and in St.Thoms.
Good Luck!

I bought great T-shirts from street vendor in St. Thomas, not in the straw market though, good quality, that was 7 years ago and the shirt still looks good, although I haven't worn it every day or anything.

Hi LV,
You should be able to find decent ones in all those ports, just check the tags, if its a brand that you don't recognize, I'd pass on it. I've been lucky to find like "hanes" in most places, and also pass on the straw market in Nassau, very poor quality t-shirts. I have found that the t-shirts you can purchase onboard are good quality.

both St Maarten & St. Thomas are great for T-shirts usually cheapies go for approx 3/$10.00....but Del Sol are a little more but probably last longer although our shirts are 2 yrs old & still in great shape & they are the cheapies!!!
