The tee shirt has experienced a sexy update this year- draped racerbacks and dipped arm holes à la T by Alexander Wang, oversized and sheer at American Apparel, and Erin Wasson for RVCA's daring tanks that beg to be worn sans undergarments. And now that Oak's collection of filmy tee shirt basics for their a.ok line are hitting their stores there's a whole other option for tee shirt perfection.
Might we add, these are pretty competitive specimen's in the pool: draped shoulders, enormous, slouchy pockets, and a feather-weight material that lead us to believe we may have found that much sought after "what-we-would-design-if-we-could" version. Available in black and gray only, the t-shirts have kind of a unisex appeal in their oversized cuts. And, most importantly, they are relatively affordable (that is, if you're not holding 3 packs of Hanes as a comparison). The t-shirts retail for $48.00 and tanks retail for $44.00 online or in stores.
