Mr. McGifty runs a website so his uniform in the warm months is a t-shirt and jeans (blazer if he has a meeting.)  In the cold months, it’s t-shirt, half-zip sweater, and jeans.

One of the best tees I ever bought him was this one (unfortunately no longer available) from Mr. Bathing Ape.  Bathing Ape is a phenomenon that I still don’t completely understand.  Except I do get that they make cool stuff and it’s constantly sold out.


I wish that Mr. Porter was a better source for cool t-shirts — because their packaging is so amazing and their New York delivery service is on point.  But I cannot tell a lie.  I find the selection wanting.

Lately, I’ve been getting more joy from the Brit site, I got these Pint and Half-Pint tees for Mr. McGifty and Little McGifty a few months ago:


He also really liked this one with the old school sneaks, although I passed on the kids version.


Lest you think that all I do is support the British economy with my cross-the-pond shopping, I am also a big fan of the ICP (International Center for Photography) in New York for great gifts.  In fact, Mr. McGifty was rocking this very same t-shirt today:


And while I’m at it, I have to give a shout out to the folks at Ebbet Field Flannels for their vintage baseball tees, like the ones pictured below.  They also do a nice deal where you can get 5 vintage baseball tees for $99.  You can’t beat that with a bat.


Hawaii Islanders, 1961


This Toronto Maple Leafs tee uses a 1957 logo and features the team’s mascot, Handlebar Hank


The Havana Cubans 1953.

Got a good source for cool t-shirts?  Let me know in the comments section.  Mr. McGifty and I thank you in advance.
