To me, teeshirt weather is perfect weather. Mostly because I can wear fewer, and more comfortable clothes and still be showing some style. However, sometimes I find myself trying to stretch teeshirt weather into some too hot, or too cool temperatures. It’s normal, and it’s seasonal. Since the seasons change, I need my teeshirt to change along with it. Luckily, we make Tees° by Degree°. Teeshirts specially designed for different temperatures and seasons. Even at the tail end of winter, I’m able to find ‘teeshirt weather’ here and there, because we make a teeshirt specially designed to be extra warm. We call it a 60//40 tee, and It’s made of a rich terry-knit fabric that’s warm, but not too thick. The sleeves are slightly longer and fit closer to the arm. There’s a thick, sweatshirt style hem that lock out drafts. This style has a raglan shoulder cut so that the thicker material still layers well.
As spring arrives, it brings warm days with cool mornings and evenings. This is when I want to wear a 70//30. It’s more like a traditional teeshirt than the 60//40 but, unlike your average tee, it’s made out of a material called ‘slub’ cotton. This material has different densities that give it an almost heathered look. The fabric also feels a little thicker than most tees, but is able to breath because of its varying densities that you can see when you hold up to the light.
Summer, and the accompanying heat, is tricky for clothing because you can only take off so much of it before, well, you’re naked. Luckily, the next best thing to being naked is an 80//20 tee. It’s made of super fine 100% organic cotton that breathes exceptionally well. The fit is a little looser to allow more airflow, and give it a laid back summer vibe. And the neckline is a little more open to let heat escape.
In any season, teeshirt-weather is perfect weather. Only now, the weather doesn’t have to be perfect to be teeshirt weather. All you have to do is change your shirt.
