The Tee: Re/Done Hanes 1960s Slim TeeThe Price:
$78What Makes It “The Best":
"Our tees are 100% made in America. The fabric is as soft as a vintage tee that has been washed hundreds of times. We actually created our own fabrics using the same techniques that were used to make fabric in the '50s and '60s, so they have that slightly slubby-sheer look to them, but are 100% cotton. The cuts are all inspired by the most iconic decades of the last century. They are updated classics that you can never have enough of in your wardrobe. Plus, the women in our office don’t want to wear any other tees anymore! That kind of says it all." — Sean Barron, Re/Done cofounderWhat Kept It 100:
This tee and I have a complicated history
— when they first dropped, I threw some shade at the brand for charging close to $80 for a Hanes tee, when you can get a pack of multiples for less than that at your local Walmart. But I have to admit, it's a damn good shirt. To clarify, Re/Done isn't using actual Hanes tees to produce this pricier variation. Instead, they've developed special new fabrics that mirror that of a worn-in Hanes T-shirt. It has the feel of the one you love and have washed a million times, but is still flattering and doesn't take the lived-in look as literally as the Wildfox tee did with its roughed-up edges. It's like your old favorite, minus the holes and pit-stains, and the fit is super-flattering. Plus, the small tag at the neck is made of fabric almost as soft as the tee itself, and made In America is always a plus in my book....And What Didn’t:
Some people hate a cap sleeve and this sleeve length is, in fact, on the shorter side (though not fully cap-level). It's a more shrunken, body-hugging fit, which again, might not be for everyone. But it's difficult to find any other flaws — there are no obvious deal-breakers, like obnoxious logos or superfluous add-ons. The tee is currently sold out, but the brand let us know it should be restocking in the next month, with even more new styles and colors to come in July.On The Scale Of 1 - Best:
I kind of hate myself for loving the most expensive option, but I take it all back, Re/Done! I humbly admit: Your tee is the fucking best and I never want to wear any other tee ever, ever again. It's everything I want: Comfortable, minimal, classic, and with a well-loved feel. Julia Stiles
sums up my feelings completely.
