The Perfect T Shirt Search is Over

Personally (for me) and professionally (for clients) I am always on the look out for the “perfect” t- shirt. It’s kind of like the story of Goldilocks – not too loose, but not too tight, not too long and not too cropped, soft and drapey but not too distressed – it’s been a never ending search…. UNTIL NOW!!!!

On a recent trip to San Francisco I wandered into a cute shop on Hayes called MARINE LAYER. Their sign read “Absurdly Soft Shirts” so I was intrigued. Well guess what? They were telling the truth!

Their T Shirts are PERFECTION! Take that, Goldilocks!

I chose the slub crew but they come in a bunch of styles all made from an absurdly soft blend of pima cotton and modal. I have had mine for a few weeks now and they really are all around great t’s. They dress up or down, hit at the perfect length both at the hip and on the arm, they drape without clinging – basically, I’m a huge fan! Check out some of my favorites below.

Hey, as a side note, I’ve gotten some feedback that it’s hard to find the items I’m showing in my posts. 

Listen, my mission is to take the stress OUT of getting dressed, not add to it!

So, just to be clear, ALL of the items shown in ALL of my posts, past and future, have links – just hover over the picture or click on the pink word(s) in the post and BOOM, you’ll go right to a site where you can buy it, if you like it! It’s that easy! Woot- Woot!

My version of the perfect T a little swingy, but with a flattering drape.


And, then I will add this long sleeved striped version


Can you say PJ perfection??

A navy corduroy trench?? YESSSSS!

BTW, their men’s collection is pretty awesome and absurdly SOFT too!

Have a happy and absurdly soft, perfect t-shirt kind of day!
