T-shirts have long been a streetwear essential. Not only are they the go-to base layer of any look, but their graphic embellishments have long been a proclamation of identity, whether you’re repping a band or artist you admire or want to add something particularly eye-catching to an otherwise muted ’fit. Now, as the weather warms up for spring and we start leaving our sweaters at home, a line-up of steezy new graphic tees are at the top of our shopping agenda.
Unlike those winter essentials (premium knitwear and quality jackets) T-shirts tend to come at achievable price points. Of course, exceptions apply to those who insist on rocking the likes of Gucci or Fendi, but lucky for your wallet, some of our favorites right now retail for as little as $20, with the highest on our list a not-so-shocking $125.
Looking through the selections of some of our favorite streetwear retailers, including Caliroots and END., some of the best graphic t-shirts we’ve seen of late pay homage to our favorite TV shows, such as Primitive Skateboarding’s dope deconstructed Rick and Morty tee and a nostalgic The Flinstones design by PacSun. For those who prefer more minimalist prints, Heliot Emil, WOOD WOOD, and Stüssy have each put out some super clean chest graphics, and for a particularly insane grail to stunt in all summer, Takashi Murakami‘s collab with Drake’s brand OVO can still be copped at resale websites for not far off its initial price tag.
