I am looking for some advise. I need to take the exact same product shot as this and was hoping I get get some help in terms of what lighting set up I should go for. Any help would be much appreciated.​/images/ctshirts13.jpg (external link)

It looks like very even and diffused lighting. The simplest way to achieve it is just to bounce your flash on a white ceiling in a smallish room.

If not, a shoot-through umbrella (not too small) close to the subject should get you broad diffused light.

For even more broadly diffused, you can try a big softbox. But I think that would be overkill for this.

Depends really on what gear you have.
