Back to Basics

I am not sure about you, but finding the perfect tee is tough. You would think for something so basic it would be easy, especially given the volume of t-shirts on offer. However, getting a cut that is flattering, affordable, doesn’t stretch after the first wash and isn’t see through is not an easy feat.

A couple of years ago I found my perfect match and it ticks all the boxes except one, the price! So following a conversation with a friend recently, about this exact thing, I decided to go on the hunt for the basic tee.

On a mission, Glassons and Moochi did not disappoint. Glassons tees, (bottom right), are a bargain at two for $30, the cut just a little too boxy for my frame.

Moochi always delivers and the ‘Gift’ tee, (top right), looked great tucked in. A favourite in store this year is the dressier Circ tee.

However, a variety of stores and piles of grey, white and black tee’s later it really came down to two…….

Despite the cut and very tempting price of the Cotton On tee’s, my overall pick……the Bassike Scoop V Neck from Superette. A splurge at $119, I can’t go past the flattering cut, (top left), and how comfortable the 100% organic cotton jersey feels.
Now ladies, tell me, where do you go to find your perfect tee?!

One for the Lads

Think motorcycles, old school style and the masculine, earthy smells of nature – Triumph & Disaster have nailed it with their range of male grooming products, enticing even the ‘toughest’ to give it a try.

Triumph & Disaster

This kiwi start-up, founded by former New Zealand cricketer Dion Nash, has hit a six with men around the country and increasingly, across the globe. Founded on strong values, Dion speaks of a poem given to him by his father as the inspiration for the name, Triumph & Disaster show cases a variety of products for the stylish and rugged male combined.

I stumbled across Triumph & Disaster products earlier in the year when shopping for ‘Mr Hayle and Grace’. As an outdoors kind of guy I knew he would like the smell and masculinity of the products. Turns out he loved them.

I recommend the basics, something simple and classic like the ‘Old Fashioned Shave Cream’ or ‘Shearer’s Soap‘ and for that close shave check out their interactive ‘Advice‘ page.
