An essential part of any warm-weather wardrobe, the pocket tee finds its roots in the athletic-wear of the 20th century. It used to feature hearty fabric and durable construction, but the staple garment became ubiquitous and watered-down as brands opted for cheap labor and materials from overseas manufacturers.

Today, a crop of boutique brands have looked back to mid-century pocket tees, recreating their appeal with top-tier fabric and quality manufacturing. The prices are probably more than you’d traditionally spend on an average t-shirt, but who want to settle for average?
