Tee Up

Logo, printed, and concert T-shirts are all the rage and I have to wonder if my husband was at the forefront of this revival… I like them best when worn under a suit jacket as in the SS17 Dior show above.

Love, Bees, The Rolling Stones Lips, Elephants, Gucci. Etsy and eBay have tons of tees, too.

  • I can only see these t-shirts working for me if I am wearing that Dior suit.

  • Love the JCrew Bee T-shirts!

  • Love them! For Christmas, I bought my husband a vintage tee shirt from a 1980’s Rolling Stones concert in Japan – it’s so great. I have the David Sheldrick tee, as it’s a favorite charity of ours and I would love the bees, but it’s sold out in my size. I think they look so great on their own, or under a blazer to keep it not looking so “office’.

  • Perhaps some of these work in specific instances, but most don’t look becoming to my eye, regardless of their message. Instead, they resemble bumper stickers or advertisements to me. Brand logos and printed house names or anything obvious doesn’t hold appeal, but I realize they are coveted by many. I never regret wearing a perfectly cut black or white t-shirt. The now classic shot posted of Cindy et al in the white button down shirts says it all for me – less is always more – even when one can carry off the “more” version.

  • I almost snorted my sip of tea when I read Paula’s comment!! Have to agree, only with a well cut suit and I feel like once I’d done it a few times would be over it.
    My sister has an endless supply should I be so inclined.

  • I have loved this look since Carrie Bradshaw wore the Mickey Mouse t-shirt with the white tux jacket. EA has worn great t-shirts with blazers as well. I think you need a vintage Patriots one ;). Not a fan of a designer logo – there is a fine line IMO on what t-shirts work. Congrats again on that incredible Super Bowl win!

  • Trunk Ltd sells editions of past rock concert tees.

  • I think it is about having fun which you should do with fashion sometimes. The jacket would cover a good deal of the image so if you have some kind of logo it will not scream. I just think it is irreverent and fun. I wear plain T-shirts all the time.

  • Yay Paula! You always write what I am thinking and way better than I ever could. Thank you..
