In India, the tank top, or undergarment, is still an essential, as it was in France at the start of last century. In this tropical climate, men traditionally wear it under a light shirt. It is part of the history of the country with its cotton plantations and powerful textile industry.
At deToujours, the traditional undergarment becomes a t-shirt in its own right, made in 100% fine cotton.
Thanks to the quality of the weave, the exceptional shape and the wide “Gainsbourg” neckline, it will soon become your very own go-to basic.
It reminds us of the “Fruit of the Loom” tees from the 70’s who gave their place to coarse, deforming fabrics. Well, this precious model is now back with its original cut and beautiful fabric.
