Cult Item: Oversized Tees

By Josh Woodfin, 22 May 2014

We've already talked about how big is big this summer, especially when it comes to T-shirts. Longline, oversized and skater fits are set to be your go-to grab whether you're on holiday, at college or just heading out for a day in the park.

Colour-wise, it's all about keeping it simple. Plain black or white is always a winner, or go monochrome for a edgy-indie-band-approved mix of both. Still not convinced? Check out some big tee fans from past and present and see how well it can work.

He might be getting all dressed up at the weekend for his wedding to Ms Kardashian, but to us he'll always be the man who bought great big tees back to the public's attention. Good old Kanye.
