It should be simple, but finding that ultimate plain tee — the one that looks good with everything — is no easy task.
A t-shirt is the basic you can work into just about any outfit, and finding the right tee for you is something we consider to be of the utmost importance. (Ok, it's not like, paying-your-car-insurance-on-time important, but it's up there.)
The right tee can take you from summer to winter, and from day to night. Layer your tee under a light scarf for an easy breezy trans-seasonal look. Pair your tee with some cut-offs and wellies, and, boom, you're at a music festival. Pop a statement necklace over a basic tee and march right past that doorman, 'cause you're in the club.
But for some reason, finding a tee of just the right, cut, fabric, and colour you're after is like trying to catch a unicorn (hard).
Whether you favour a classic white crew neck or are more of a baggy black v-neck fan, your perfect t-shirt is waiting for you, somewhere in Brisbane. Because we love you (seriously, we'd give you the shirt off our back), we've done the hard work and tracked down some of Brisbane's perfect t-shirts.
Bassike at camargue
Fans of Bassike know that these raw-edged, very comfy shirts are not for the body-con set. Loosely cut and made to worn large, they come in a variety of cuts at camargue, and are largely adorned with their trademark selection of stripes, both thick and thin', in a range of neutrals.
James Perse at Samantha Ogilvie
LA based, James Perse has really outdone himself with his range of basic tees. These shirts are cut close, and come in V-necks, crew and scoop necks, and boyfriend tees. Samantha Ogilvie have a wide range of James Perse tees in a variety of colours.
Acne at Calexico
This cult Swedish label does a bangin' range of slightly oversized tees (for the perfect baggy tee try their Wonder Linen T-Shirt), as well as perfectly cut tighter tee (you want their Bliss Generic T-Shirt). Find Acne tees at Calexico on James Street.
Current/Elliot at camargue
Current/Elliot's tees are very wearable, but also updated with the seasons, so you can be sure your new fave shirt is both simple and stylish. Editor's Tip: Current/Elliot also do a bad-ass button down.
Base Range at Blonde Venus
You can find the minimalist separates of Base Range in the brand new Blonde Venus store (read all about it here!). Made from natural fibres, these tees are made to stand the test of time (music to the ears of anyone who is sick of churn-and-burn cheap clothing).
