for the past few years, i felt that finding the perfect basic tee was impossible. i've spent hundreds of dollars on basics from kain and t by alexander wang, only to find that they don't hold up any better than basics that i could buy for much less. i decided to quit searching.

last weekend, i happened to find the most perfect t-shirt ever. why is it so perfect? a) 100% cotton. b) it feels like it's already been broken in for me. c) IT'S NOT $80. 

meet the vintage cotton tee from j. crew.
