Although one of the most important staples of the modern wardrobe, the t-shirt, is relatively young. It wasn’t until Marlon Brando wore the garment in “A Streetcar Named Desire” in the 1950s that the t-shirt went from being an undergarment to becoming a cultural phenomenon and down the line a classic piece of menswear.
During the end of the 1800s, American workers used to have something called a “union suit”. Kind of a button-down onesie, the union suit was great for keeping warmth but way too warm during the summer, why the workers decided to cut the onesie in half and get rid of its sleeves. Born was the first version of what would later be popularised through icons like Marlon Brando and James Dean.
For us, the t-shirt is the foundation of a well-coordinated wardrobe. It’s one of the first garments you put on in the morning, and one of the last to come off. Having a tee that accentuate who you are through fit and feel – whether you prefer it relaxed, slim or something in-between – is an important way of expressing yourself, an opportunity not to be missed. This is why we’ve worked tirelessly to perfect two t-shirt fits, to make sure one of the most important garments of your look fits exactly how you want it to. Here they are:
