I first learned about the brand Richer Poorer through its cotton bralettes, which are great, but have since grown to love the really simple T-shirts just as much, if not maybe more.

Like a lot of humans, I live in tees and tank tops in the summer, but I hate spending a weekend day at the laundromat, and I’m pretty anti-wash-and-fold. So I need to stock up on a lot of tees before summer starts, and I need them to be cheap.

These, indeed, are cheap! They’re $34 each, and they come in a bunch of colors (gray, blue, black, mustard, and white) in both a crew neck and scoop V-neck. They’re soft, hold up when I do actually wash them, and are just generally just unfussy, good T-shirts I can not only wear with jeans and shorts, but also to bed.

I like the classic gray, but hands-down the best one on the site right now is this pocket tee with “Seat’s Taken” embroidered on the front.
