So, here’s the second installment in my week of more-sustainable-white-t-shirts (first was the Tencel lazy tee, also by Groceries). And just FYI, I’m wearing the same jeans/shoes so you can see how the different t-shirts fit given the same “background.”
I LOVE this tee. As with the other Groceries “white” tee, this is not white white, but more of an off-white. It’s still basically white, but if you like WHITE white, then this may not be the right tee for you. I generally prefer WHITE white, but I’ll take this since it’s organic cotton/low-impact dyed. The tee is definitely more fitted, but not too. The v-neck and sleeve lengths are perfect; it’s so comfortable and ridiculously soft.
Honestly, I don’t wear fitted t-shirts much lately, but this one will be great for wearing with slouchier bottoms and layering underneath cardigans and sweaters.
Just as a point of reference, my favorite white t-shirt is STILL the James Perse casual tee – it just fits right for my body, and for nearly every occasion. I do have quite a few white t-shirts, though, in different styles and shapes, to wear with different things, but if I had to choose one tee to bring with me when I travel, it would be that one.
Friday, I’ll review the Alternative Apparel perfect organic cotton v-neck, which is a looser fit.
What’s your favorite style of white t-shirt? Can I help you find a more sustainable alternative?
