I thought my mission was simple: find the perfect t-shirt.
You know, the kind that’s cut just so? Not too starchy but not too draped, not a box cut but not clinging to my skin like I’m a leftover sausage wrapped up for the fridge either. The material is so important too, light and breathable (but not see-through) — and nice to the touch. In Australia, there’s a label that I’ve always turned to — Bassike, which I’m wearing as I type this — but not so easy to get here in New York.
Ok, so maybe the mission is a little more complex…
I need help, so I asked around at the Studio:
Me: So, where can I get the best cotton t-shirt? Where do you get yours?
Emily: (pulling at her amazing fit grey t-shirt) Vince! I think their t-shirts are so soft and mine haven’t deteriorated even though I wash them all the time — the quality’s still good.
Elle: I like the neckline of Hanes straight up. You know, I like it tight to the neck.
Elle: Another one I like is an old American Apparel top, boys, that’s worn in…
Emily: ….Oh, yeah! I have an old men’s American Apparel one that I love, but it has a hole in it so I can’t really wear it out anymore.
So, maybe I should try the men’s section next time?
Where are all of the good cotton t-shirts for women? Help!
