Here's that old desert-island game again — you know, the one where you pick what you'd like to have if you ever found yourself stranded. And, no, Ryan Gosling is not available. We'll take a toothbrush, maybe our iPads, and you can bet there will also be a striped tee with us.
Jokes and hypotheticals aside, the striped top is by far one of the hardest working items in our closets. It's a piece that we truly get the most leverage out of, since it can be worn solo or paired with anything — literally, anything — because it acts as a neutral (as far as we're concerned).

Plus, we've included the shopping suggestions that will make sure your bags are packed properly in case that desert-island thing should ever (unfortunately) transpire.
