September is a great time to stock up on basics for the new season and basics don't come much more basic than the white T-shirt. Indeed, the humble white tee didn't even begin life as a garment designed for public consumption, but as a comfy bit of underwear for American sailors to sport under their navy uniform. Fast-forward 100 years, however, and the joys of a crisp, icy crew-neck are something to be shouted about, whether proudly displayed as a standalone item or worn as the core of versatile layered ensemble. Seriously, it's very hard to look bad in a clean (this is very important) and crisp white tee.
