Style Advisor: The Best New T-shirts

The quest for the perfect T-shirt is never-ending. We’re not even entirely sure there is such a thing. Aside from the basics – white crew necks, black slim-fits, grey marl Tees and, perhaps, a striped number – there’s such a huge variety to choose from. Why would you limit yourself to only one? This season, designers including Off-White and Saint Laurent have upped the ante in the T-shirt stakes. From graphic logos to pop-bright colourways, the T-shirt you choose to layer under your sweatshirts and knitted jumpers can make as much of a statement as that under which they are layered. Bonus points if you’re jetting off to make the most of the September sun somewhere nice on the Med. The closing parties are kicking off soon, right? Whatever your cause for a new T-shirt investment, here’s how to wear some of the best of the season. It’s Tee time.

FASHION-FORWARD

Typically, a T-shirt is a casual garment. Pair with Gucci’s cuffed suit trousers, futuristic trainers and a long-line jacket, and it becomes something else entirely. Valentino’s oversized silhouette is peak fashion this season. For those who mean business when it comes to style.

STREET NOSTALGIA

By now, cult streetwear label Off-White needs no introduction. Their Mirko Artist Tee is hot off the runway and combines a graphic illustration with the AW19 collection title “Public Television”. A cross between high-fashion and a ‘90s skater boy T-shirt, your mates are guaranteed to turn green with envy.

REBEL UPDATEL

Saint Laurent’s logo print Tee riffs on the house’s classic black and white logo. Wear with slim cut jeans, a pair of heavy black boots and Gucci’s wool GG overcoat (which plays with traditional tailoring), for a modern reinterpretation of a rebellious gent.

MODERN OPULENCE

Feeling decadent? Look no further than Versace’s gold-faced T-shirts and baroque patterning. The Italian label’s unique brand of maximalism has had a renaissance of late, and works as both a statement daytime look, and as opulent evening attire. Because sometimes more is better.
