Something a little different today. A wee change in direction. An experiment, if you will…

I’ve always thought of the T-shirt as the Alpha and Omega of the fashion alphabet.
Giorgio Armani

For once, fashion plate that I am (!), I have to agree with the perennially tanned Georgio. I do love a good tee. You can dress it up, you can dress it down. It never goes out of fashion. You can chuck it into the washing machine – none of this fancy schmancy ‘dryclean only’ malarkey for the humble tee. It is an undisputed wardrobe staple.

And now, I’m here to tell you I have found the one. The t-shirt that trumps all other t-shirts (in my opinion, anyway).  After performing a great public service and dedicating myself to the cause of testing many, many t-shirts through the years, I am now ready to announce that the best t-shirt available is Jac + Jack’s Louis Tee. Seriously.

Check it out:

The Jac + Jack Louis Tee has got it all. It’s made out of a lovely light and quality cotton jersey. It has a scoop neck, and flatteringly so – low enough to show some skin, but not so low that the bustier of wearers flashes too much cleavage. It has a relaxed fit and lovely loose slightly-capped sleeves. I reckon’ it is close to perfect and it’s trans-seasonal.

The Louis Tee retails for about AU$60 and I’m not kidding when I say I’ve had a couple for at least five years.

The Jac + Jack team are Jac Hunt and Lisa ‘Jack’ Dempsey, who launched their label in 2004 with the aim of creating luxurious pieces that would be modern yet timeless. Their pieces are designed to transcend seasons. Have a look at more of their range here. (There’s a range for all you fashion conscious boys, too).

Now, the bad news. Unfortunately, for you Northern Hemisphere readers, Jac + Jack does not yet ship internationally.  Isn’t that a bugger? I reckon’ there’s an opportunity here for us to see if we can change that, but until then, you can contact them direct to see if they’ll do you a special favour by e-mailing to this address: info@jacandjack.com.
