I can not lie: I will spend what others may consider an ungodly amount on T-shirts. But to me, a really good tee is an investment purchase—I wear them endlessly (and they will last forever if you hand-wash and dry them)—and I’d rather have fewer and better. I’ve got a couple of Alexander Wang Classic Jersey tees that have worn amazingly well. And they are a perfect object lesson in why I tell you guys not to fear synthetics: they’re 100% rayon and as soft as a beloved cotton tee you’ve put through the wash 100 times. Here’s the variation I’m thinking of going for this year, because a scoop-neck is so pretty and feminine on, and the relaxed, swingy hem will deftly camouflage my stomach junk.
Wilt tees are all cotton and definitely heavier if that’s what you’re looking for, and they have completely mastered the high-low hem thing.
A classic stripe, but in black and white for a little edge.
Nothing wrong with a nice, slouchy v-neck, and this is such a good blue (it does come in other colors, FYI).
And finally: this one is dizzyingly pricey even by my warped standards (it’s Proenza Schouler) but is also just so good.
