Despite trying a million and one different "basic tees" over the years, the J. Crew perfect shirt continues to be my go-to. I've been doing a little spring-cleaning closet purge, and every year I seem to throw out a million of the same cheap layering tees and basics that I snatch up from discount retailers. I'm always lured by the idea that buying a basic white t-shirt shouldn't cost more than $25, despite the fact that these tees almost invariably fail to live through their second washing without stretching out or getting a weird, warbled neckline. J. Crew perfect t-shirts are the exception. They look brand-spankin' new after every wash, year after year so I was ecstatic to find that they've updated the silhouette to now include a slightly longer sleeve. I'm always laying this t-shirt under blazers and as you can see here, the extra few inches on the sleeve makes it especially perfect for the office.
