Choosing the best T-shirt for the summer

T-shirts are one of the most common and popular clothing items in our everyday wear. Regardless of which preferences you choose to wear and which styles you prefer, a good T-shirt is never a bad investment.

T-shirts came in the everyday men's wardrobe from the usual utilitarian process. Initially, it was worn only under the shirt and other clothes and almost never as an independent "top". That soon changed when Hollywood glitz became the compass for our usual fashion choices. Marlon Brando and James Dean went to appear on the screen in white T-shirts and later this trend became popular and was fixed (and clearly, still very much in vogue!)

In  warm season, T-shirts are indispensable, in fact, it will be better if you have a lot of them! Of course, if you want, you can buy a very inexpensive T-shirt from the mass market manufacturers. However, if you are striving for high-quality products, even such a basic thing as a T-shirt should be chosen very carefully. Quality always has value.

Let's give some examples of  T-shirts that we feature in Denimio for the summer.

Entry SG

This is a relatively new company from Tokyo, which seeks to produce very high-quality and modern-style knitwear using the oldest and most proven production methods: namely, the production of circular knitting Loopwheeller (Tsuri-Ami) machines. These machines are located in Japan in the Wakayama Prefecture. Loopwheeller machines can produce only 1 meter of knitted fabric per hour. However, it is exceptionally soft, comfortable and durable. Things produced in this way usually do not have seams on the sides (if this does not require the feature of cutting). In detail, we already wrote about Loopwheeller earlier.

The knitted fabric for this company is made in Wakayama, and all things are sewn directly in Tokyo. Entry SG very successfully combines the classic traditional approach to the production of old sewing and knitting equipment and modern design.

ENTRY SG  "EXCELLENT WEAVE" LOOPWHEEL T-SHIRT

This is one of the best options for a very high-quality base T-shirt, made of excellent materials. The model is available in many colors.

However, in the gray coloring, the manufacturer recommends stopping especially. These T-shirts are made of recycled cotton. The thinnest and softest cotton fibers settle on the equipment. They are collected by hand and restarted into production. Thus, it is possible to get a very soft and comfortable cloth to work on. On these shirts, there is a "recycled cotton" label.

Another thing worth paying attention to is the very tight fitting of the neck. This is done specifically to avoid unnecessary stretching.

This model is also available in various colors.

Almost every year, Studio D'Artisan produces a very interesting collection of traditional Japanese Tsuri-Ami knitwear, made according to the strictest canons. At the same time, this company, in memory of the American old vintage style, specifically buys knitwear made in the USA (this is not knitwear produced at Loopwheeller, however, it is very high quality), which then sews and produces excellent t-shirts. For such issues, a small American flag located at the very bottom of the T-shirt serves as the identification mark.

Apart from classic plain T-shirtsStudio D'Artisan also produces things with interesting witty prints that are considered to be the distinctive symbol of this brand.
