Swedish underwear brand CDLP makes the very best male base layer for stylish men everywhere, going against the norm of mass production and instead handcrafting each piece by hand in its third-generation factory. They recently started applying those same techniques to a new t-shirt release, which is, as they describe, "just like your old, everyday t-shirt—just better."
Featuring superior softness and breathability, the t-shirt comes from a unique blend of 67% sustainable Lyocell (the same eco-friendly wood pulp their underwear is made from) and 33% organic Pima Cotton. Together, it delivers the optimal texture and that perfect, slightly worn look.
They sent over a piece for us to check out and we can confirm that it definitely delivers, feeling nothing like a traditional cotton tee but also—not like it's made of some strange polyester "performance" fabric or overly shiny "luxury" blend. The fit is spot on too, with a flattering drape and premium feel.
Available in black and white colorways at launch, don't let its price tag scare you away. CDLP makes the kind of essentials you want to take care of and wear with pride and once you experience the quality and comfort for yourself, it won't feel like you overpaid a cent. Remember the moment you upgraded from Fruit of the Loom to Calvin Klien? CDLP is the next step in leveling up.
