The tee shirt is necessary in cold weather layered under sweaters, paramount in warm weather tucked into skirts, and essential any time beneath blazers. My expectations are very basic. White, black, gray, navy, and cream are the only acceptable colors for this cotton staple. Graphics and large logos distract from its simple nature and should not make an appearance. Furthermore, the tee should not be too large, nor too small. One should not appear to be taking a swim in one's shirt, nor give the impression of being sewn into one's clothing like Marilyn. The tee should be replaced when it becomes too dingy or worn with holes, even if it has become one's favorite.
