Vintage t-shirts not that easy to find, but vintage henley’s are a rarity indeed. Anthony gets one of each and a Levi’s button-up to boot. A summer kick-off starter kit. And everyone gets shoelaces, too, these days. Read the full letter below. 

Hi Anthony,

Thanks for subscribing to Comma, the vintage menswear subscription service! Here’s what you get:

A Vintage Levi’s Button-up: This shirt features two chest pockets, a point collar, and a plaid that’s bright without being gaudy. Levi’s is pretty fool-proof when it comes to style, so I hope this will fit into your wardrobe. Tagged a medium, but quite slim. Made in USA.

A Blue Henley: Hanes, for all its $12.99 t-shirt five packs at Target, has a heck of history with cotton. This henley is thick, the placket is sturdy, and the fit should be just right for you as either a top layer or an undershirt. Bright but simple. Made in USA.

A Yellow T-Shirt: North Carolina was once the heart of the American garment industry. (Hanes, incidentally, was founded in Winston-Salem.) There were a lot of cotton mills and t-shirt factories in the region. This one is from a little place in Rocky Mount. Tubular knit, mounted collar, and, as far as I can tell, never worn. Made in USA.

You mentioned the Greaser/Rockabilly look: Nothing does it better than slim jeans, a leather jacket, and a plain white tee. So you’re almost there. After that, it’s more about how you carry yourself and your hair than anything else. If I get a plain white tee worth sending, I’ll certainly do it next time around!
