The T-shirt doesn’t get a lot of respect, but a good one can see you through the summer in reliably Newman-esque form. And since we’re guessing you’ve already got a reliably weathered plain white tee, you’re free to get a little more interesting.

This Levi’s Vintage tee (conveniently on-sale) takes its cues from 30s style, which means a broader neck and St. James-style ecru stripes along the sleeves and waist. It’s a few steps beyond the classic white tee, which should be just enough to let them know you’re paying attention.
