For all of you who loved the idea of that Eileen Fisher tee I was yammering on about last summer, but weren’t loving the oversized fit or the matching price tag, let me introduce what I think might be this spring’s best tee, from Calypso St. Barth:
Isabel v-neck & Jami crew neck tees, $65 each
It’s still not a bargain, but this is a tee I’ll live in, I can already tell. I nabbed one in navy yesterday, and am seriously considering heading back for a few backups while they’re on sale. It’s linen like the EF tee I love (I am fast becoming the world’s leading evangelist of linen tees), but with a considerably more trim (yet still relaxed) cut. It comes in a crew or v-neck style and a rainbow of colors, and clocks in at $65, a steal compared to its pricier big sister.
