The long tee is making a stand in the fashion world and I keep getting these two major questions: “How do I wear it?” and “Where do I get one?”
I’m gonna to go through how to wear them first then I’ll let you know the best places to cop some.
The Simple Undershirt
I love this glasses shirt from H&M. Since it’s a white shirt with black glasses, I decided to whip out the blank and white chinos. Currently only $19.99 at Pacsun. I like contrast and colors so a washed maroon shirt seemed perfect for it. The go to with my burgundy Cole Haan shoes are vibrant orange socks because of the hint of orange on the shoes. You’ll see it again in the next look as well. Wearing a long tee as an undershirt on any button down is a great fashion statement, make sure to unbutton the shirt and be confident in it. Confidence is the first step in making any new style or menswear trend work.
Probably one of my favorite looks. My way of thinking when it comes to fashion is rooted by colors. I create outfits that are a visual journey for people. In NYC the long tee plays another role, it prevents you from getting pickpocketed because the shirt drapes over your back pockets. If someone still manages to grab your wallet, you’re either oblivious to everything or Neal Caffrey is real. Going with the undershirt route again, an almost nude shade tee with a dark shade of khaki pants was just off enough that blue could combine the two to flow. I added on a gray beanie, maroon backpack with maroon slip on shoes. Button down from J.Crew and chinos from Pacsun-as always. The long tee I copped from Pacsun as well on one of their “Buy 1 get 3 free” deals in store.
Beamer, Louis, And Long Tee
The coolest thing about the long tee is you can throw it on with just pants and it will be such a rad look. The casual version of the Weekend Getaway look, got some help from my brother Zac Blankenship for this shot. That dark/forest green is such a good color for this Summer. Just like Zac did, adding a pair of jeans to ANY long tee will work. When it doubt, wear jeans. Copped at Forever 21 Men.
Where To Get Yours
There are so many places to get them. My top picks are definitely Boohoo, Pacsun, and Forever 21 Men. From Pacsun, I’m not really vibing with the Vibetown ones but I love the Obey, Civil, and On The Byas ones. My number 1 jumper must have is this Longline Jumper from Boohoo. This with some jeans, Chelsea boots from Oro Los Angeles and a Hershel bag and you got the best style in any room that Kanye isn’t in. Now go get some long tops and starting rocking the new look.
