'the tee'. named the tee because it’s probably the only one we’ll ever make. we design premium basics in shapes that last more than a season, crafted so that you can wear them for years to come.

speaking of lasting for years, this tee is made out of some seriously thick + buttery soft 100% japanese cotton. you can wear it every day or once a month without it falling apart.

it’s oversized + long compared to the average tee. it balances the perfect amount of width, length + tailoring to maintain shape while being oversized to maintain comfort,  flexibility + freedom. it’s the right length to wear with jeans or pants while being long enough to cover your crotch if you’re pairing them with 'the legging'.
meticulously designed over 15 months.
