‘Beaten Up’ T-Shirt by Bassike

I for one, am looking forward to summer and I am so ready to ditch the puffy jackets and wool socks. Let’s just say I’ve had enough of this cold weather and I’m ready to shed some layers. Anyway, once in a while I check out Oki-ni as they have a lot of great clothes, shoes and accessories for men.

Well, lo and behold! Look what I found.

Bassike Beaten-Up Basic T-Shirt

Interesting piece isn’t it? This ‘beaten up’ t-shirt comes with a ripped shoulder and chest detail. It’s great for that “hey, I just got mugged”
or “I just got into a bar fight and guess who won” look.

But wait, this basic white crew neck t-shirt doesn’t come cheap. It retails for about £79 (or approximately US$120). Hey, it’s finished with a raw hem and is made of 100% organic cotton jersey. It also comes in two additional colours, black and green.

Personally, I like it if I can pull it off and I think I may have a reason to finally bring out from the closet my well-worn and torn acid-washed jeans from the 80′s (which probably doesn’t fit anymore). Ah yes, reminds me of the good ‘ole days when I spent good money on jeans only to distress and tear them up.

I can just hear my mom saying “I can buy you the 3-pack Hanes t-shirt for $11 and do a better job at ripping them.”

    I think you should make your own version of his t-shirt, then post a picture of yourself modelling it (yes, I am full of good ideas).

      Ha ha ha… I don’t think I will be able to pull off the same look. I will just look like I fell of the bike or something.

    this is where DIY fun comes in handy. £79 for a ripped shirt? no.

      Mark, you may be right. As much as I’m not good with DIY projects, it doesn’t seem that hard to replicate this shirt. I’ll just keep my £79.
