If you’re like me, every Spring you look through all your white tees and realize they are a little worn from last year, bear a stain or two or need an upgrade. So every Spring I start searching the internet for the best basic white tees. Being that we are in Los Angeles, I also like my white tees super soft and somewhat relaxed. I also prefer that they be designed and made by an LA based company. I also prefer super soft cotton. Here’s my picks for the best white tees this season.
#1 James Perse – Relaxed fit. Deep scoop neck. Lightweight Mini Jersey has a lived in quality and provides optimum softness for an everyday basic tee. Buy online.
#2 Dawn Baker – this simple scoop neck tee is a wardrobe staple. I buy a couple every season. Buy online.
#3 – Splendid – boyfriend tee with a relaxed look and feel. Buy it online.
#4 – Madewell – Limited edition and small batch, Rivet & Thread designs are future keepsakes crafted in LA from top-of-the-line fabrics. Take this perfectly worn-in tee, for example: Made of supersoft jersey, it is coolly slouchy and just-a-touch oversized—basically, the perfect vintage-inspired T-shirt (light distressing and all). Buy it online.
#5 – M/F People – when lord raglan invented this sleeve-style after losing an arm at the battle of waterloo, he could scarcely have imagined the comfort of our incredibly lightweight, unisex, short-sleeved tee, made entirely of the world’s finest cotton, peruvian pima. round rib collar and single-needle hem are sewn with exquisite care. built to last. Buy it online.
PLUS ONE – And last but not least, don’t overlook Junk Food out of Culver City. Their super comfy tees are the stuff of dreams. They are currently doing a pop-up collab with Levi’s on Abbot Kinney if you want to shop their tees in person. Otherwise shop online.
