Back to the Basics.

Erik Engstrom

I feel most comfortable in a basic tee and a five-panel.

When I'm shopping for a new wardrobe or packing for a much needed vacation, there is one thing on my mind: what articles of clothing can mix and match to make new outfits that I've never worn before? 

Once I discovered Mack Weldon, my world changed. Oh, how I love these tees! While it's clearly the perfect undershirt, their shirts are much more versatile - why hide them under other clothes? Throw on a plain white tee with a pair of pants and a five-panel - I don't care if I look like I rolled out of bed, because in reality, I probably did. 

If you know me personally, or have been following The American Swede for a while, you will know that I have been all about the monochromatic wardrobe. Don't get me wrong I love color, especially pops of color in certain outfits, but an slick outfit that adheres to a single color palette is dang sexy.
