There are indeed few garments that can claim the title of classic - the white organic cotton t-shirt is undoubtedly one of them. It is best worn not too wide, not too tight and tucked into the waistband. A basic piece that will probably never go out of fashion. Since the fifties, the white t-shirt has definitely become a fixed part of our wardrobes thanks to Marlon Brando and Jane Birkin. ECOLOOKBOOK has found you some of the most stylish, comfy, fairly produced and sustainable white tees using less water and energy during production.
