Saturdays NYC - Randall T-shirt

Featured a while back, this one feel closest to the surfer spirit, no surprise with it being from Saturdays NYC. Big navy block stripes, little pocket and contrast stitching, this regular fit tee is spot on.

Levi's Vintage Clothing - Bottle Strip T-shirt

LVC have been doing the repro stripe for a while now, they're masters at it. This one features a series of thin stripes in browns and greens and has a touch of The Wonder Years about it. Nice.

Lightning Bolt - Freddy Pocket T

Lightning Bolt add a bit of bright to this selection, the colourway, 'Ginger' is a match of two well suited shades and while branding on this sort of shirt can be irritating, the design on the pocket is good enough to show off. Plus these guys know enough about surf to wear it proud.

Warehouse - Duck Digger Striped Tee

We featured the long sleeved version a while back. This more summer friendly version is a pick for both the colourway and the slight, very slight, breton neck. It's Warehouse so it's great.

YMC - Royal Blue T-shirt

This YMC stripe feels like the most modern of the bunch, a ribbed crew neck, the double white stripe on blue background and lightweight slubbed marl cloth give this an easy feel.
