Graphic tees have a bad name for a reason. A quick Google search this morning returned legitimate, for-sale shirts that read ”BEACHES BE CRAZY” and “ALEXA, FEED MY KIDS.” No wonder most men stick to plain, monochromatic tees. 

But if you know where to look, there are tasteful graphic tees out there. It just comes down to finding a subtle design inked in approachable colors. 

We recommend giving Outerknown a look. The SoCal brand just launched a line of 100% organic cotton tees, featuring a dozen designs rooted in the brand’s eco-minded sensibilities. The No More Straws tee has 500 dots to signify the 500 million straws Americans toss in the garbage every day; the Levi’s WellThread Pocket Tee celebrates our oceans with a riff on “The Great Wave Off Kanagawa.” All the tees are comfy as hell, and cut, sewn and inked in Downtown L.A.
