Now, being a girl and all, you could probably guess that your pal Julia is as much in love with all things fashion as any Fake Bake-ed WAG-wannabe. And although you would be right, it is also true that having grown up as a total tomboy, forever climbing trees and skinning knees, means there are not many pretty dresses which will do quite as much as the perfect combination of skinny jeans + white shoes + a crisp white t-shirt.
I have written before about my love of all things Katherine Hamnett and her slogan shirts. In a similar vein, here is one of my all-time favourites, a cracking little eBay number:
It never fails to raise a smile – even from notoriously hard-to-please New Yorkers. Sadly, it is also true, I have never been to NY, but – hey! – I’m working on it…
Recently the NY t-shirt and I have been straying into ‘wearing that to death’ territory so it was time to start looking for a suitable addition to the ménage. I was lucky enough to find, via Dazed Digital, the masterminds behind T-Shirt Party.
On a mission to design the ‘ultimate London t-shirt’, to compete with the ‘I love NY’ itself, they plan to release a new shirt each week, with accompanying video exploring the inspiration behind the design. The shirts will only be available for a year and are sold at a very pocket-friendly price. Founder Stan Still explained to Dazed:
T-Shirt Party reps London town, our hometown. No boutiques, no marketing campaigns, no hyped up nonsense, just T-shirts for the people. It’s simple: after all it’s only white tees – the people’s apparel
So, here I am wearing what seems to me, in light of this post, to be on course to become my new favourite thing:
Looking good, as I am sure you will agree. With 13 styles released so far and more to follow, there is something for everyone to fall in love with and you are also unlikely to see everyone you know rocking the same one, an added bonus.
If I was purchasing them for blogging friends, I would buy this one for Mark of The Mortal Bath, as he is soon to leave the Metropolis behind for northern climes:
While this one would be good for Phil of Truth, Reason & Liberty:
And I can see Bonesy rocking this one fresh:
I can confirm that the t-shirts themselves are high quality, wash well and make you feel like a million bucks quid. Get them before they’re gone! And make sure you tell me about any of your favourites tees below in the comments…
