The Canvas 3413 in Denim is certainly on the more muted end of the blues. The heathering in the shirt gives it some shades of grey even.

Canvas 3001 in True Royal
The Canvas 3001 in True Royal is another good option for a basic blue t-shirt. It's very comparable to the Next Level 3600 in Cool Blue, so, choosing between the two may come down to fit. Both feature slim, retail fits. Canvas', however, is a little bit longer in the body and sleeves.
