“One of our personal favorites and most well-received new brands of the season, Affix, is a collaborative project between Kiko Kostadinov, Taro Ray, Stephan Mann, and Michael Kopelman. The New Utility t-shirt highlights their industrial-inspired graphics and classic workwear silhouettes.”
Federico Barassi, senior menswear buying director at SSENSE.
“I really like Vetements tourist-inspired t-shirts this season. There are a variety of options, all with playful interpretations of the classic souvenir t-shirts you find at market stalls. Vetements’ Fall Winter ’18 show actually took place in Paul Bert Serpette flea market which is home to lots of the original styles which inspired the collection. My top pick is the ‘World’s Best Dad’ tee, it looks like it was bought at a Chinese tourist shop near the Great Wall.”
Daniel Todd, buyer at MR PORTER.
“Repeat winners of tee of the season here at Goodhood, there aren’t many doing it better than Shauna & Misha at P.A.M. This season’s ‘Better Living’ tee is lifted from a dedicated subreddit for the discussion of synthetic psychoactive research chemicals. Irreverent and funny, everything a good graphic tee should be in our book.”
Joe Warner, sales and brand manager at Goodhood
“An ami t-shirt is subtle, street-style savvy, and designed with a fit of the utmost precision. At this point, it is no secret that a wardrobe is only as good as the classic white tees it contains, and this one is a definite winner – It fits in very well with the brand’s understated aesthetic of luxurious basics dipped in urban credibility. The color contrast catches the eye but remains low-key enough to be worn again and again on numerous and wildly different occasions.”
Lisa Wuerzinger, buyer at STYLEBOP.com
“A sophisticated brand available in some of the best Italian boutiques. We have always loved Watanabe.”
Raffaele Giovine, chairman of Italist
“Dior Homme maintain the trend of logo-heavy elevated streetwear with FW18’s must-have ‘hype’ t-shirt. A direction that new custodian Kim Jones continues into SS19.”
Dean Walker, buyer at END.
“This printed tee comes from a new brand to Browns, Vyner Articles. The brand takes its name from Vyner Steet in the art district of East London, where Finnish designer Heikki Salonen lives and works. A great abstract floral print in a classic blue and white combo makes for a killer tee.”
Lee Goldup, menswear buyer at Browns Fashion
