Go-to brand for basic T-shirts?
NORM to the CORE.
T-shirts are basically (lol) the starting-point of every good wardrobe, and also the foundation of 90% of my outfits.
I live in tees (or I basic in #mybasics?), and unlike my iPhone, home is usually where I lose them because a housemate (sibling/friend/lover) will claim my favourite cashmere/cotton blend white crew neck was ‘lost in the wash’. Probably because it’s so hard to decipher the bad from the good until you’ve at least tried – or better yet, worn – them a few times.
Personally, I think the best basics come from the men’s section, or ex-boyfriends. I don’t condone stealing but I may/may not have redeemed the money my last boyfriend owed me with basic tees (and maybe a few sweaters, you know, as ‘interest’) when I moved-out. I now have the perfect [ex]boyfriend collection with everything from Calvin Klein to American Apparel, as well as some new kids on the block like Basic Rights (a London-New York lovechild) and Bondi’s (locals only) Venroy (and yes, these brands are both available online).
Anyway I love to have a chat and I want to chat with YOU, so let’s share (and steal) our go-to’s in the comments below.
