to clarify - we are talking yarn-dyed indigo tees here - I also have a garment-dyed tee or two from brands like SDA, etc...
the PBJ's have been around for a while and should be well established - the pattern is a bit more specific and maybe not up to everybody's liking.
the Stevenson is excellent in weight, cut and fit.
my FC's are more in the lightweight category, but IIRC they've done heavier indigo yarn-died ones in the past...
The Samurai is more like a lightweight sweat shirt.
Warehouse is my go-to for mid-weight, heavier tees - great knit fabric and cuts (set-in sleeves and raglan, with or w/o pocket) - you can see the colour of the worn one on the right, the new one is underneath.
so, Warehouse & Stevenson are my preferred choices at the moment in regards to specialty tees from my little selection.
obviously, this is all very subjective and the main issue being specific fits and measurements of each brand working for your body type and comfort or not!
