Basics can look more than just everyday clothes if they are just as interesting in front as they are at the back. Case in point is this heather-gray henley T-shirt by the French brand Sixpack. The front is enticing enough: the necline is cut high, so that when you button all the way up, the tee looks like a regular crew-neck, and the placket extends, stitched down, all the way to the hem of the shirt. But the back is where the action is: a mock placket stretches downwards from the yoke, complete with buttons, one– two down from the top– in a contrast blue! As one of my friends pointed out: it’s cute! That’s not a bad thing for an otherwise regular ‘ol tee. Unfortunately, Sixpack is not available in Bangkok. Your best bet (and nearest) is in the south: Singapore, where so many of you are going to these days.
Sixpack is available at Beluga, on the 2nd floor of The Cathay, 2 Handy Road. Tel: +65 6735 3573
