This season, we started with crisp shirting and all-things denim and now we're moving onto a great selection of men's T-shirts. Why? Because they're a wardrobe staple; a simple piece with just about all the throw-on appeal that you need from a casual collection. But don't be fooled, by no means are they boring.
Putting the 'French' back in to French Connection, contemporary T-shirts bear designs inspired by our suave shoppers over the channel.
Inspired by influential artists, famous haunts like Cafe de Flore and an era of bohemian youth, the fashion of the time is encapsulated by a move away from skinny dressing and onto a larger, more generous fit. It's a look that's best described as a sartorial slovenliness that had long been synonymous with the working class. Naturally, we're on board. Today, we're wearing it in cool cotton, modern colours and practical shapes.
Just add jeans and a pair of trainers. Voila.
The winking eye design on the classic navy hue is a nod to Jean Cocteau, one of the most influential creative figures of the era, whose iconic sketches are synonymous with the Parisian avant-garde collective after the 1st World War. A pair of dark denim jeans and shoes that err slightly on the smart side offers a contemporary update on evening wear.

Next up, taking inspiration from our French roots, this new logo T-shirt features the phrase, 'Comme Ci, Comme Ca' which translates to 'Like This, Like That'. Wear a modern take on khaki green for a slightly more youthful interpretation.
Comme Ci Comme Ca Slogan T-Shirt
Adopt a cotton T-shirt with an iconic French bicycle that's synonymous with a certain sense of bohemian freedom that was felt at the time. This slouchy shape lends the t-shirt a casual feel that, when paired with trainers and a turned up pair of jeans, will easily become part of your everyday wardrobe.
Bike Print T-Shirt
Aside from 'Bonjour', this is perhaps the most iconic French phrase that could have been selected for our first instalment of French T-shirts. Optimism and positivism come through the collection acting as a fresh and uninhabited outlook.
Ca Va Slogan T-Shirt
Lastly, paying homage to our brand roots, the date of our conception is emblazoned across the chest. Made with cotton and finished with a crew neck, it's an ideal addition to your faithful chinos. Watch this space for plenty more where this came from.
