For the Love of the T-Shirt: The Taj Collection

picture-33

Breaking new: Taj loves a good tee. What? No? Really!?

Yes, the rumors are true. To celebrate his man shirt love, Taj has collaborated with Billabong to create a premium collection of Taj-fit tees, raw selvage denim, and various other party accoutrement.

Sadly, crop tees didn’t make the cut. Taj has always liked something that is not too tight around the neck and has a perfect length as well; something that “doesn’t look like a frock and doesn’t look like a crop top,” as he puts it. Taj prefers his tees light and airy, so all the tees in his collection are made with bamboo cotton.

“When we were approving the pieces, I would think: Could I put this on at 6:30 am and still be happy wearing it at midnight?” Taj says of the collection. “If the answer was yes, they’re all in here.”

SWELL’s top pick (in our humble opinion)- the Pegasus Tee. Because mythical creatures are rad.

Do your part…
One Towel = One Rescued Orphan.

g00025p9
Beyond the Surface is a nonprofit corporation in the United States, with a mission is to eradicate youth homelessness in coastal communities worldwide and empower street children and disadvantaged youth through the sport of surfing. Beyond the Surface sponsors three international nongovernmental organizations:
The Kovalam Surf Club in India
WAVES for Development in Peru
The Umthombo Surf Club in South Africa
With every towel purchased, one more homeless youth in Peru, South Africa, or India will be helped off the street, into a classroom, and onto a surfboard- rescued from a lifetime of poverty.
