When it’s not warm enough to wear one of my new nylon tanks, I’m known around the office for mostly wearing my “trademark” black tees. There’s a story behind that…
About 3 years ago, my second year in business, I wanted to start printing my own tees. Already being very particular about them (my favorite brand was RVCA) I went on a mission to find the “perfect” blank tee to print on. It had to have just the right modern cut, strong but relatively thin material to feel like a well-worn favorite go-to, and it had to survive dozens of washings without fading or looking fuzzy. After testing and trying over a dozen manufacturers, I found it!
Guns blazing, no guns required.
On most guys, the arm sleeves on this tee stop just or about below bicep – and being black, the sleeve gives the illusion of depth – thus making your bicep appear a little more pronounced than normal. It doesn’t shrink as much as the others (although over time it will some for sure) and so I’m also able to wear a smaller size than I would normally have to get. The result? I feel like I look better overall…because yes it’s true, black is slimming! So I can wear a closer fitting black tee without looking lumpy.
If you’re a muscular dude? You’ll be twice as in love with this thing!
Fifty shades of black.
The end result is a tee unlike any “undershirt quality” plain, unbranded tee you’ll find on the market. I still have some around that are nearly 2 years old and have been washed dozens of times, and still look just as black as the first day. And we’ll print a tag-less label inside, in-house before it ships, so you can read our washing instructions without feeling them!
