The Story Behind the Tee - James Perse
With an appreciation for minimalism and a long history with fashion, James Perse has established himself with his line of casual, everyday T-shirts. Made in the USA out of only the finest cotton, James Perse shirts combine comfort and fashion. At Basicality, you can find a wide variety of styles and sizes of James Perse’s shirts and we hope you find your perfect tee among our selection.
As the son of the founder of the innovative Los Angeles boutique, Maxfield, Perse was exposed to the fashion world from a young age. Surprisingly, it was sports that got him initially into fashion design. Struggling to find a well-made baseball cap, Perse made his own for his father’s boutique and quickly amassed a popular following. This quest for well-designed, quality products translated over into the creation of a line of shirts and eventually into his own line. Since then, James Perse has been well known for his fusion of sophistication, simplicity, and quality. With each piece, there was much thought placed into the quality of the fabric and the design of the shirt. In addition to classic tees, James Perse’s line now includes other essential items such as hoodies, leggings, pull over dresses, and tanks.
The 100% cotton Sheer Slub tees are some of our favorite pieces from the classic James Perse collection. The whole sheer slub series uses the reverse of the fabric for added texture and is garment dyed for an extra soft, lived-in feel. The short sleeve crew and v-neck tees (shown above) also features curved bottom hem and slim, flattering fit. Regardless of how you wear these styles, you can feel the quality of the fabric and see its versatility.
