Richmond-based lifestyle brand (and Racked 38 mainstay) Need Supply Co. just gave us one more reason to shop its well-curated online boutique.

After 20 years of stocking cool labels from A.P.C. to Rachel Comey to Vans, the retailer has has launched its own line of basic men’s and women’s apparel. Suggestively named NEED, the collection is being presented as a filler for any gaps in your closet. It's hard to put a cap on the search for perfect everyday tees, tanks, and sweaters, so of course we were excited to check out the 18-piece line. It's all crafted in LA, with Japanese cottons, twills, and jerseys.

Need Supply Co.'s vision of basics involves the kind of staples you'd expect from the minimalist boutique, including ribbed crew necks ($65) and mock necks ($68), wide leg trousers ($165), and French terry sweatshirts that are great for mixing with more conceptual items carried by the shop. But If "basic" for you means vintage-y, cropped mid-rise jeans with slashes at the knee and a tiny flare ($185) or a slouchy white jumpsuit ($236), Need Supply Co. has also got you covered.

The line launched yesterday online and in Need's stores in Richmond, Virginia, and Japan; shop it online here and check out some highlights below.
