SUMMER STOCK-UP 5: TEES
Grabbed your “summer clothes” bin out of the back of your closet only to find a bunch of neatly-folded letdowns? You’re in luck: we’re introducing a new feature for the warm-weather months, aptly named “Summer Stock-Up”. In each post you’ll find five variations on a summer essential—perfect for refreshing your closet (and avoiding future disappointments).
T By Alexander Wang’s Heathered Linen T-Shirt
It’s no surprise to anyone that Alexander Wang makes a damn good classic tee shirt. So what sets this one apart? The linen fabrication comes through in the perfect weight for summer, while also showing off the heathered effect in a way that basic cotton wouldn’t. Get it here.
Folk’s Panel T-Shirt
Just when you thought you were done with color blocking, Folk’s fresh, clever personality finds a way to make it feel new again. Side color blocking, when worn, is a bit more subtle than its front-and-center counterparts…but the vertical line across the back serves up a double-take to anyone who may have missed it. Get it here.
Maison Kitsune’s Ears T-Shirt
Okay, we admit it– we’re suckers for Kitsune’s whimsical graphics. The heathered cotton blend gives the tee depth and texture, so the signature ears image isn’t the only thing going on. But people will ask you about this one, so better work on your French pronunciation. Get it here.
Reigning Champ’s Set In Tee
Who better to master the easygoing athletic-style tee than Canadian activewear masters Reigning Champ? Exposed stitching details give a nod toward the sport look, while this saturated Pacific blue is juuuust different enough to make an impact (and be worn as a pseudo-neutral). Get it here.
Opening Ceremony’s Cyan Elvis T-Shirt
While we’re on the topic of blue– this bright cyan tee, designed exclusively for Opening Ceremony in conjunction with Elvis Presley Enterprises, isn’t for the faint of heart (but then again, neither was Elvis’ hip-waggling, so, y'know, take that with a grain of salt). Get it here.
