Unbeatably soft garment-dyed tees with timeless surf style designs. Sewn in Southern California.
Inspired by the enduring appeal of our competition jackets, which have been prized by surfers and collectors for more than 50 years, we set out to find a cotton t-shirt that would only improve with age. With cheap, mass-produced tees flooding the market, it wasn’t easy — so we went back to the drawing board and built our own dream tee, right in Southern California. To put it simply: these are no ordinary tees.
Every one of our Comp Stripe Tees are handmade just for Birdwell a short drive away from our Santa Ana factory. They’re garment dyed for unbeatable softness right out of the box, and sewn from 30 singles ring-spun cotton, which makes them about twice as fine and smooth as today’s typical t-shirt (most clock in around 18 singles). With a regular fit and a hem that hits just a few inches below the waist for a flattering fit, there’s no cooler way to show your stripes on the beach, in the backyard, or anywhere in between.
