When it comes to wardrobe essentials the classic tee is up there if not the most overlooked staple every man owns, the versatility of the tee means whether it be worn on the weekend with denim's or during the week to work under a tailored blazer it's one the garments in your wardrobe you should appreciate as a best friend, because it will look after you on many a occasion. There's also something about a plain white tee with a pair of denim jeans that cannot be replicated no matter where and how hard you look, its a classic outfit, timeless while also being as safe as we can go when it comes to dressing. The problem with the classic tee is there's alot out there and while at a first glance on the hanger or online they may all do the same duty, that couldn't be a more of a mistake for a misjudgment. The importance of a tee being well cut, well crafted and made using premium high quality fabric means this staple won't end up being a one wash that doesn't look or do the same for you on every wear.
For us it importance of a good quality tee may not be recognised on face value by everyone but simply put you will no doubt wear this basic more often, it will feel better when you wear it, and most importantly it will last longer. With this in mind (and the reasoning to the rant about the quality of a plain white tee) the Backbone collection of everyday basic's by Nudie Jeans Co. is ideal for those essentials that act as cement in building the ideal wardrobe. The concept of providing the Nudie Jean's denims with a selection of jersey based garments to compliment the arsenal of washes Nudie present goes together nicely, especially with focus on the dry denim's, the Backbone collection offers simple and sustainable jersey garments all crafted from 100% organic cotton and come in a recycled paper packaging shaped like a vinyl cover. Depending on your style on the short sleeve front there's the classic round neck tee featuring ribbing at the neck, stitched down with a 5 mm top stitch, narrow two needle top stitches around the armhole, bottom and sleeve hems teeth stitched and the signature Orange thread is subtly chain stitched along the inside of the neck. Also short sleeved is the henley tee, a four button placket with customised buttons, self fabric binding at the neck with a 1 mm top stitch, bottom and hems are two needle top stitched and the infamous Orange thread runs through the top button hole and chain stitched along the inside neck. The long sleeve pocket sleeve offers a chest pocket while the favourite of the collection for us the classic sweatshirt, lightweight, this dry unbrushed pique sweat features a classic rib insert with flatlock seams along with all the other seams.
All crafted in Portugal and with a great premium finish and handle, the 100% organic cotton Backbone collection is a bit of a no brainer, easy to wear and made to last in all the classic jersey styles you should have in your wardrobe. Available in the safe colours that go with everything: White, Grey Heather, Black and Indigo Navy.
