The Signature Tee
The basic t-shirt is a staple in everyone’s closet. My goal is to build the perfect t-shirt to wear with your favorite blazer, but not lose what you love about a tee.

What makes and breaks a tee for me is the collar and that’s where I began. Pulling from my sportswear experience, I researched some vintage jerseys and soccer jersey collars. I wanted to bring in a more tailored feel by using the jersey fabric instead of a standard rib collar. This gives a cleaner look and allows me to split the collar and bring in some color pop.
The construction of the collar dictates the type of jersey fabric that will be used. After sewing up a few samples, I concluded the fabric needed to be a 10oz. Jersey blend with a slight stretch. Relaxed in the body and sleeves, but not sloppy. With a nod towards shirt tailoring, I added a drop tail when tucking in your tee is necessary.
Finished with rich embroidery and carefully placed to work with our favorite jacket. We are left with an elevated tee for all occasions.
