The Rite Stuff Border Stripe Tee – Black/White


The Rite Stuff Border Stripe Tee is the brand’s take on a American casual wear staple. Made with 100% pre-shrunk Indian long staple cotton jersey woven in Japan, this fabric is the Goldilocks of tee weights, not too heavy nor too light but just right. And it’s soft too, really soft with an almost velvet-like hand feel that makes it a comfortable choice. The neck is snug, made of a chunky ribbed knit, but will stretch to fit. The tags are woven on vintage shuttle looms in Japan with a design based on a 1920s menswear store tag from Long Beach, California.

The Rite Stuff creates new takes on pre-World War II American workwear, with exceptional attention to detail and focus on quality and ethical production. Whereas most heritage clothing brands focus on the post-war years, The Rite Stuff owner, Bryan Shettig, takes his inspiration from the clothing worn by workers in the early part of the twentieth century.

Influenced by classic pieces of the time and an extensive vintage archive, the brand puts its passion for the history of heritage clothing into each piece they make. The result is tough, functional but incredibly beautiful clothing that is full of period-correct details and that looks just as good today as it would have a century ago.

Authentic, Japanese-milled fabrics and deadstock materials, combined with a production process that closely resembles that of a century ago, means that each piece The Rite Stuff makes is built to last.

Production is overseen in the finest Japanese facilities by John Lofgren & Co., resulting in heritage workwear of unsurpassed authenticity and quality.


The Rite Stuff t-shirts have been washed once so expect no further shrinkage. Wash when needed on a 30 degree or cold wash. Hang dry. As with any clothes you care about, do not tumble dry.
