Five small but vital wardrobe investments
Tee shirts are a way of life in Southern California. We've all tried to take ourselves a tad more serious by wearing a woven or button up 5 days in a row but the reality of it is that our weather is just too damn good. Spoilt yes, but with this fabulous weather comes the burden of needing a good tee shirt rotation. Here's our 5 favorite tee's that will get you through any week.
Step away from your comfort zone and get right for the summer in Fuct SSDD’s collaboration tee with Adrian Boot. In a heavily washed yellow color way that features Mick Jagger and Peter Tosh during Don’t Look Back video shoot in Jamaica in 1978. Because of the enzyme wash this tee has that worn and ready to wear look. Pair this with Levi’s Made & Crafted’s Needle fit in the Misfits wash and a pair of Wing+Horns Black Leather Highs and you're on your way.
Next up we have Norse Project’s Niels Light Indigo Pique Tee. Popping collars in Polo's are a thing of the past and here's an easy replacement. Made using real indigo, this piece will develop a unique patina with wear over time that will be unique to you so switch it up with this modern hand-dyed version that features a comfortable rib collar instead bru.
*This tee will also look great with a pair of nice black jeans.
If you’re not familiar with Wing+Horns yet, then let this be your introduction. This SS Black Crewneck tee from their Base Collection is made from their signature 100% Cotton Slub Jersey fabric. In the words of Biggie Smalls this tee is, “Sicker than your average.” Meant to be worn as a slim fitting tee, the elegant look pairs great with your favorite pair of black denim jeans. The details of this tee can’t go unmentioned either; it features a durable flat lock stitch construction along the hem, nicely finished sleeves and one of the best looking necklines finishes in the bizz.
*Also available in Heather Ash.
Born X Raised is the brand by two local Venetians. Season after season these guys are putting out the best graphics in the game. The Snooty Fox tee is a staple piece from their SS16 D2 drop, with their iconic BxR graphic across the back. Rep where you from with pride.

Last but not least we have OuterKnown’s Bahia Stripe Tee from their Summer ’16 collection. This 100% Cotton jersey tee features space-dyed broken stripes that bring a nice texture to this classic fitting tee. The neckline on this tee is a bit more relaxed than a regular crewneck, which makes it the perfect tee to wear to the beach this summer. Paired here with a pair of Navy Port pants, this one will also look great with any pair of shorts. If it's good enough for Kelly Slater it's good enough for you.
