Spending too much money on a T-shirt is one of those bad-good feelings, where you know you’re breaking some unspoken rule of common decency, but you also know you just bought something you’re going to wear on repeat out of for the next six months (or ten years). At least once a season, we wholly support the move. If you’re looking to update your collection for spring, here are some of-the-moment buys we’re feeling. There are pastel colors and XL stripes for the guys who want T-shirts that can do both (work and weekend), ’90s athletic graphics and low-fi logos for the streetwear-wise guys ready to put their gothic-lettered music merch into retirement, and tie-dye T-shirts for the hippies and surf brahs who can’t be bothered to DIY. Buy one, buy them all, and wear them on repeat until they’re softer than a baby blanket—then wear them some more.
This shirt has ‘90s throwback appeal and an optimistic message for the future all wrapped into one.
