The Perfect T-Shirt For Everyone On Your List

Ubiquitous, comfortable, and totally on-trend. The only thing better than gifting a T-shirt this holiday season is getting one yourself. Barneys New York has your favorites, here.

Holiday shopping is hard. It’s especially hard if you want to gift clothes: Who knows what size Uncle Mark is wearing these days? Would your sister-in-law would prefer an A-line or hourglass silhouette? That’s the beauty of the T-shirt. It’s about as close to a one-size-fits-all, easy-to-please purchase as you’re going to make this season. Of course, T-shirts are more than just clothes: They’re personality-defining statements that tell the world who you are and what you’re about without ever having to say a word.

Some appeal to music lovers, like MadeWorn’s vintage-inspired styles featuring iconic logos, lyrics, and album covers of classic rock bands. Others, like James Perse’s monochrome pieces crafted of ultra-soft fibers, appeal to the quiet sophisticate with an eye for understated luxury. (Naturally, you could reverse-gift them if you have a healthy sense of irony.) Who you buy what for is your choice. We’re just here to help you with a few suggestions.
