Regardless of your age, lifestyle or career track, the T-shirt is a fundamental part of your wardrobe. It is must-have apparel for casual weekends when you get a brief reprieve from your hectic work life. It is the grab-and-go outfit when you have to run errands or take your pooch to the dog park. Paired with your favorite jeans, the standard T-shirt defines comfortable dressing suitable for casual and a little-less-than formal places and events. The secret to the go-anywhere, match-anything T-shirt is quality. The material, the cut and the workmanship must be extraordinarily good for the T-shirt to hold its shape, which should get better and softer with time.
