For STEVE by Thaddeus®, we rejected simple and basic from the start. We used cotton heather yarns to knit soft jersey with spandex for a stretchy and soft feel right next to the body. In the same heather and spandex yarns, we knit stretch pique that we piece in as a tone-on-tone racing stripe that runs across the shoulder and down the sleeve from the collar to the cuff. We also add the same pique as side panels on the body of the crew neck. We rev up the collar by adding a triple ridge in the outside center of the crew trim. The seams are overlocked in dyed-to-match threads to blend in with the specially selected heather yarns—each color its own rich story for a tee that is neither simple nor basic.
Tee Time: Not Simple, Not Basic
