ALABAMA CHANIN - THE FACTORY THIS WEEK - 1

“The white T-shirt is like a blank canvas – eternally versatile.” ­ Edward Enninful

Whether stark white and paired with jeans for the epitome of cool or emblazoned with a bold political statement, the t-shirt has held a special place in the hearts of most since Marlon Brando donned one in1951’s A Streetcar Named Desire. Styled from old-fashioned union suits and originally produced for the U.S. Navy as a protective layer under their uniforms, the t-shirt has risen from an undergarment to a tool for personal expression.  From its history as a canvas for culture and individuality to kits and techniques to craft your own personal garment, this summer is all about the t-shirt for us.

The Clean Tee—which launches next Tuesday—is our consciously crafted series of classic t-shirts made in our Bldg.14 manufacturing facility. In anticipation, we share inspirations and stories about this classic wardrobe staple.
