How to Tell If a T-Shirt is Worth Buying
When deciding which t-shirt is right for you, there are a few crucial aspects to consider. First, is the t-shirt well made from high quality materials? You want it to feel comfortable. Second, do you like the t-shirt style? This will obviously come down to personal preference. And third, will the t-shirt be trendy after a few months? A year? You may not want to buy a shirt that will be out of date soon (unless you like throwing money away).
By gauging the quality of a t-shirt, you can easily determine whether or not it’s worth buying. Regardless of how stylish it looks, you’re going to need to wear it, and I’m guessing you’d like to avoid chafing, tearing, and other issues that result from low-quality materials or poor stitching. The Hundreds t-shirts are made in the USA from 100% cotton by fashion artists, so you know that when you buy from The Hundreds you get top-notch quality.
A t-shirt’s style is the aspect which first grabs your attention. You see a shirt, and before you even consider if it feels comfortable to wear, you have already decided that it fits “your style.” Based on a shirt’s standout features (button up, v-neck, frocket, etc.), its color and graphics (or the lack thereof), and (for many) its brand, you may be drawn to or repelled by its appearance. The more details of a shirt that appeal to you personally - details that define your style, the more likely you are to buy it. Considering how unique and bold The Hundreds t-shirts style is, you may love what you see, or hate it. Not many people fall in between, but everyone seems to agree that no other streetwear brand looks quite like The Hundreds.
Trends come and go, some quicker than others. This is especially true in fashion, and the only way to know if a t-shirt is trending or outdated is by doing research and keeping up with current fashion trends. Thankfully for fans of The Hundreds t-shirts, trendiness is not something you need to worry about. The design sense of The Hundreds t-shirts for both men and women is, simply put, timeless. The Hundreds apparel never truly becomes outdated because the brand’s style represents an iconic and celebrated streetwear era. People get it right away.
What Makes The Hundreds T-Shirts Unique
While the quality and trendiness of The Hundreds t-shirts is impressive, it's the brand’s style, which spawned from a rich history of creative endeavors, that truly makes their apparel unique.
The Hundreds was founded by two artists with a passion for California street culture: Bobby Kim (Bobby Hundreds) and Ben Shenassafar (Ben Hundreds). Their first clothing line under ‘The Hundreds’ brand was a series of screen-printed t-shirts, which they designed and manufactured in a friend’s backyard, using a 2-color clothing press. This DIY approach to fashion design persists in The Hundreds t-shirts today, and it's now a defining feature of their design aesthetic.
From unusual color combinations and style pairings, to pop-culture iconography in the form of retro-looking graphics and text, The Hundreds t-shirts represent creative experimentation and counterculture of the 90s. That is to say, there is a consistent stylistic influence across The Hundreds t-shirt collection, but each product looks very different from the last.
“Variety” is the best word to describe The Hundreds t-shirt collection. For example, let’s pick out a few of the most popular The Hundreds t-shirts for men: the Anthem, Arena, and Leo t-shirts.
The Anthem T-Shirt features a thick, solid color stripe stretching across the front and back of the shirt, encompassing the sleeves.
The Arena T-Shirt is mostly solid color with a front pocket containing a comic book-esque Hundreds logo.
The Leo T-Shirt is covered in leopard spots and includes a black, cursive “The Hundreds” text on its left chest.
The point is, these t-shirt designs are so distinct from each other that it’s hard to believe they come from the same brand. However, the more time you spend perusing the brand’s collections, the more apparent it becomes that the The Hundreds t-shirts are incredibly varied.
What to Wear with The Hundreds T-Shirt
Once you’ve pinpointed a Hundreds t-shirt you like, the next step is to find other apparel you can wear with it. Hats and jackets are the most popular items The Hundreds fans purchase with their new t-shirts. And it makes sense when you see the t-shirt, hat, and jacket combo in action. The Hundreds t-shirts are designed to be worn with other apparel, and the same goes for their hats and jackets.
For colder weather, The Hundreds sweatshirts may interest you, and those tend to pair nicely with the brand’s pants and shoes, which you can find on The Hundreds official online store.
Should You Buy The Hundreds T-shirts?
The Hundreds t-shirts are made of high-quality materials, designed with variety in mind, and have a timeless aesthetic, so they are always in style. On paper, there should be no reason for you not to buy The Hundreds! All that said, The Hundreds’ appeal is still niche.
90s counterculture will always have a place in streetwear, but not everyone feels passionate about that era, or the design sense of that era’s fashion. If you do, however, enjoy the retro logos, unusual color combos, stripes, and other aesthetic details associated with 90s street culture (especially that found in California, where The Hundreds was formed), then The Hundreds may be your new favorite streetwear brand.
