8 T-shirts that will liven up your summer wardrobe
Tees that will keep you feeling fresh, while upgrading your style, too
It’s hot, it's sweaty it's humid, and to top it off you’ve just realised your small T-shirt selection is dire in need of a spruce up. You aren’t alone.
Whether you’ve worn the same roster of tees since the sun made its maiden appearance mid-June, or you’ve sweat-stained the nice tees you did have with still most of the summer to go - again, you aren’t alone.
Luckily here at Mixmag we’re really into T-shirts, and to ensure you’re getting the best advice when it comes to picking your next batch, we’ve put together a list of available options you should probably consider. From stripes and tye-dye, to minimal-but-effective, we have you covered.
Polar Skate Company Striped Pocket Tee, £44.95
This striped pocket tee from Polar Skate Co is ideal for those who like the looser fit. A part of the Swedish brand's AW19 collection, it features the signature Polar woven label on the left breast pocket on top of a teal and purple striped combination that screams summer.
Hidden Mangroves Dystopia Tee, £40.00
Coming in a mint green colourway, this Dystopia Tee from Hidden Mangroves is the type of tee that looks mega with a pair of shorts. A boxy cut with a neat logo on the chest and the brand's logo on the back, you can't really go wrong.
Armor-Lux Breton Tee, £35.00
Armor-Lux are the real OGs when it comes to a Breton tee. Born in Brittany, France - where the Breton is famously from - the brand has been making these striped tees originally for decades. A classic, loose-fitting top that will never not be cool.
Carhartt WIP x Fela Kuti, £39.95
Carhartt WIP has brings us a tee inspired by a man known to many as the pioneer of Abrobeat, Fela Anikulapo Kuti. One of the most iconic figures in Africa through the 70s and 80s, Carhartt has taken inspiration from his famous album artwork and mixed it with images of the man himself. The image shows the back of the tee, while the front features a neat 'Fela' logo on the left breast.
Battenwear Pocket Tee, $80.00
Nothing quite compares to a well-made classic white tee, and this one from American brand Battenwear is one of the best. A roomy fit made with 100% cotton jersey and an added pocket made of cotton broadcloth. It's comfortable, cool-looking, and a great warm weather staple.
Hikerdelic Core Logo Tee, £25.00
This is nice isn't it? A simple, but great looking tee from the Hikerdelic lads. It fits true to size and is made from 100% cotton, which makes for the ideal top in our opinion. The brand's logo on the left breast can also found as a larger print on the back, which is handy because it's a lovely logo.
Online Ceramics, We Made It Out Dead Tee, $60,00
Hand-dyed in their LA-based studio, Online Ceramics' We Made It Out Dead Tee is as loud as it is perfect for summer. Another loose-fitting option with a mad front-facing logo, this tee will see you stand out from the crowd (and also ensure your mates will never lose you, which is handy).
