. J.Crew has been an American institution since 1983, so it’s safe to say the label has had plenty of time to perfect the basics. This slim-fitting T-shirt is made from slub cotton-jersey that’s garment-dyed a faded charcoal hue that will only get lighter with time, so it looks like a vintage find or old favourite. Wear yours with everything from denim to sweats. Shown here with Officine Generale jacket, Officine Generale jeans, Converse sneakers.
