Left Coast Tee recently reached out to me about sampling one of their products. You can never go with staple pieces so I jumped on the opportunity to try one of their products. After looking at the site, I decided to order their Mens Pearl Mélange Tee Shirt. Read on below to learn why Left Coast Tee is where to buy some of the best crew neck t shirts.
Compared to the other t-shirts I own, this one is easily my best crew neck t shirts. The feel of it is super soft, but it’s not too lightweight. I hate lightweight tees because they show all the unflattering parts of your body. Left Coast Tees feature some Lycra but it’s not too stretchy. I hate when brands go overboard with stretch. But this tee still feels like I’m wearing cotton as opposed to spandex.
One thing I regret is not paying closer attention to the size chart before ordering. This tee features Left Coast Tee‘s Modern American Fit which is more relaxed. I ordered a size XL and it’s a little bigger than I prefer, but I’m hoping it’ll shrink a little in the wash. I’m always scared to order a size large because most of them don’t fit. This tee also features a higher neckline which is always more flattering. The Modern American fit has a wider shoulder, armhole and sleeve so it’s perfect for those of us with a bigger build. The length is also longer so you can wear it tucked like I’ve styled mine or untucked.
I would say the only downside of Left Coast Tee are the price tags. Their products cost more than I’d usually spend on t-shirts. But I would still recommend checking out their line. I wear my favorite t-shirts so much that they stretch out. Most of them shrink and stretch out after the first wash. Cheaper tees lose shape, because manufacturers use low quality materials. Nothing kills a look quicker than the stretched out neckline of a t-shirt. Left Coast Tee uses handpicked peruvian pima cotton. This quality of cotton is going to retains its shape better than regular cotton. Basics are pieces that you’re going to wear over and over so it pays to invest in a few quality pieces.
I love all the tonal looks I’ve seen on the runways lately. That’s why I decided to style my t-shirt with a darker pair of grey dress pants. I’ve finished off my look with a black wide brim fedora, watch, and backless loafers. I’m always looking for new places to find some good basics. Comment with some of your favorite retailers below!
