The Loop tee is knitted from the bottom up and has a square-shaped silhouette. Distinct, eye catching ribs on each side of the body cross under the sleeve opening to go around the arm hole as if the arm is going through a loop. Extending the front body’s V-neck to the upper part of the back to join, following the shoulder line, creates a natural opening around the neck and short sleeves to wrap the shoulders.

With less ease, about 10 cm or so, the impression of this tee becomes polished and sophisticated, or generous ease gives more relaxed look. Whichever you choose, this can be your warm weather go-to.
