I agree that there are often threads on casual wear -- though topics on pure "streetwear" seem to be few and far between except for discussion on jeans (for instance, we rarely see discussions on t-shirts).
So true. At least a few of us probably swear by stylish t-shirts in your closet, so let's get it out there. Who do you like? What do you like about it? I'll start it off with a few words - this is not my expertise (truly I have none) but it would probably the closest thing to it. *Guys, please, if you want to look good, get a t-shirt that is genuine. Faux-vintage shirts that say "1974 Abercrombie Swim Team" don't count. Only get vintage shirts that really are vintage, or God forbid, wear your own shirts enough so that they age into the perfect rag, right before your eyes. *"I <3 NY" shirts look lame on women, and you can bet that they look 100 times worse on you. *Wear them the right size. Loose or fitted are acceptable, or overly baggy if you're a rapper, but please do not wear them skin-tight. This really looks good on no one. Wear your own size. Wear it like a uniform, and the true qualities of your dress will really stand out. *Layering is cool (at least for the moment). Wear a couple t-shirts at a time. Two is great, three is overdoing it unless they're thin and you can only see a tiny piece of the first shirt you put on. My favorite printed t-shirts for several reasons are Yoko Devereaux
(whose t-shirt lines are actually collaboration projects). 1) The fit is perfect. The sleeve length, the tapering of the waist, the collar size, and the length are all ideal for me (they may not be the best for you, but whose posting this thread anyway?)
2) The printings are really cool, they are graphic in nature, often funny, and often have a political or social message in mind as well. 3) The detailings on the shirts are really cool as well. The stitching around the shoulders is woven to look like chain-links of thread, and the sleeve-ends have two rows of stitching. The collar rests really nicely and the band of the collar is a nice thickness as well. 4) The fabrics are nice - I would say they are equal quality to American Apparel, soft, with a nice looking finish, but never looking faux-vintage. They also are pretty durable. 5) The uniqueness factor.. How many of these do you see on the street? So few. 6) The price. $48 is very manageable. That was a bit longer than I expected. If you've got an opinion on the matter, let's hear it folks.
