The humble T is over 100 years old, beginning life as a military garment between the Spanish-American war and the early 1900s. Its transformation into style staple circles around Pringle of Scotland’s twin-set invention of the 1930s. The twin-set is part of Scotland’s textile royalty, a gem that placed us on the map a la mode with Hollywood starlets and feverish fashion follower alike. Two components created the look, a crew neck cashmere t-shirt sitting underneath a cardigan of the same colour. But the t-shirt own its own is a must in everyday dressing.
Lana Turner. Grace Kelly. Carole Lombard. Jean Simmons. All part of the cashmere t-sisterhood, not bad company to be kicking it with. The cashmere t-shirt from this day forth shall be known as ‘the all rounder’. It can take you from day to night, formal to casual and most importantly winter to summer. If you are going to own any piece of cashmere this is THE ONE.
