T-shirts are generally pretty simple, unless you consider the complex wordplay of the Big Dogs brand...oh, it's just overly large canines engaging in human activities? Whatever, that South Bark one is classic. For t-shirts that're anything but no-frills, check out the custom tailored ones from Benjamin Jay's.
In between studying molecular biology and
avoiding freak gasoline fight accidents working as a model in NY, Benjamin Jay started a graphic tee brand called Something Rebellious, before moving onto a full women's line combining fine fabrics with wackier stuff like alligator and python skin; he's just recently started using the same approach to make totally custom men's basic tops -- which, while very cool, lack the rich cultural heritage of dreidels. Here's how it works: swing by Ben's place or send him your measurements, and he'll get to work on your shirt, whether it's a v-neck, standard tee (short- or long-sleeve), or tank top, any of which can be fitted or relaxed, and to which he can add a distressed look with patterned holes which look to've been created by dragging the shirt over a bed of nails, which for Dykstra, is a dumpster these days. Shirts are crafted from everything from silk to lightweight, water-repellent, viscose blend matte jersey, and if you like, he'll also add details ranging from hoods, baseball tee cuts (w/ scoop bottoms), and slouch pockets, to real python and alligator tails he uses to create things like epaulets, pocket details, stripes, or a bar on the back of your neck, although hopefully not Club Deep.
Most shirts start in standard colors like black, white, navy, off-white, and grey, although Ben can certainly get crazier, just like that line of Big Dogs shirts where they started driving race cars...driving dogs! Seriously, it doesn't get much more nuanced.
