Down to business!

That’s heavy duty

Right off the bat, let’s talk about flimsy tees. We’ve all had one, and nothing makes you feel self-conscious like a wobbly, semi-see-through T-shirt. That’s why we’ve selected a densely knitted organic jersey, weighing in at 220g/m2, that’s nice and substantial. This stuff’s staying put.

A clean-cut lead character

It goes without saying that a great fit is crucial when it comes to a no-frills bit of gear like a T-shirt. Unsurprisingly, we’ve kept the Ultimate Tee’s famously tidy torso in the mix, pairing it up with carefully proportioned raglan sleeves. The result? A characterful, sturdy long-sleeve that’s more than able to go it alone - no support acts needed. A star among t-shirts.

From raglan to riches

On the subject of sleeves… We aren’t sure what came first: the short-sleeved tee, or the long? Was it an extension job or a cut-down? Whatever the case, when we turned our attention to making the perfect long-sleeve tee, it only felt right that we incorporate the classic raglan sleeve: a must for us, as vintage-loving, workwear enthusiasts.

On the straight and narrow

Let’s twist again like we did last summer. Actually, let’s not. Some T-shirts have an irritating habit of twisting around your torse as the day goes on. A lot of you flagged this particular no-no, so we’ve employed the latest in anti-twist technology to keep you and your T-shirt on the straight and narrow.

Less pilling, more chilling

It’s not just anti-twist properties that the Long Sleeve T-Shirt is blessed with. We’ve also added a generous helping of anti-pilling wizardry to the mix, so you can be certain your new favourite tee won’t rough up and start looking like an old carpet swatch.

Crafted collar

It would be silly of us to put all this effort into an award-winning tee only to forget about the collar. And we aren’t silly. So, we’ve created a solid vintage-style collar that not only beefs up the durability but looks rather nice, too.

Our dyeing wish

The Long Sleeve T-Shirts have been dyed by the clever folk over at Egui in Portugal. They’re experts in their field and are also OEKO-TEX certified, meaning the colours are just as good vibes as the cotton on this one. No nasties hiding here.

No ribbing here

Some long-sleeve tees go for the sporty ribbed cuffs, that’s all good and well, but we felt it was a bit Sunday League for us. We kept things simple and streamlined, with a neat turn-back cuff.

Pedigree tee

And if you still have any lingering doubts about the credentials of our new LST (that’s right, we’re not averse to an acronym) then perhaps you should know that they’re put together by the same chaps who did our stellar short-sleeve T-shirt. Now that’s top-tee pedigree if we’ve ever seen it.
