The perfect t-shirt is the holy grail of garments. Many brands try to make the perfect one, and most--sadly--fail. But I'm here to tell you that you don't have to look anymore.
A few years ago I found this J.Crew "vintage" cotton tee and every spring I stock up in case they decide to ever discontinue them. (Dear J.Crew: Please don't. I always manage to spill coffee on the white ones and ruin them.)
These slubby cotton tees are slim without being tight, just a teeny bit transparent, and they hit at the perfect place right past your hips. They're great for layering or on their own.
