Parisien

As much as I love a great statement sweatshirt or graphic print sweater, we're nearing that time of year where lighter weight fabrics become a necessity.  Statement tees can do just as much to add life to your look as any wool blend or heavy gauge garment can.  I'm a huge fan of Maison Kitsune for its playful, fresh take on menswear.  This "Parisien" tee is basic, but beyond the simple screen print lettering, the bright contrast coloring of the letters and the slim cut of the garment place it miles ahead of other brands in this department.  In the spirit of keeping it simple, I've paired the tee back to a blazer and dark indigo denim.  Casual cool with just enough warmth for those early Spring days.
