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


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.

Top 5 Fall Must-Haves from Billabong’s Designer, Mandy!

Update your wardrobe for fall with these top 5 must-haves from Billabong’s designer Mandy….

1. Pixie Tank
“Love this top. It’s a shorter tank that shows a bit of your waistline and looks so sexy paired with skinny’s. I especially love the Moon Shadow floral print…so girly and sweet.”

2. The Bombastic Dress
“The body conscious dress…makes me want to work out harder!”

3. Akasha Cut-Off Denim
“Cut-off denim…girls’ best friend. It’s a staple that you can always depend on.”

4. Aria Sweater
“Effortless cover up of the season. So easy and it can funk up any outfit. Wear it over a tank with cut-off denim shorts or in cooler weather layered over a long sleeve with your favorite denim jeans.”

5. Stanton Dress
“I love the fringe and it seems to be the trim of the season. This dress will take you from summer straight to fall.”
