To celebrate White Tee Supply month, we decided that we would put forward what we believe are the 5 most iconic white crew t-shirt wearers, as voted by us here at STÓR.
Number 5 : Tom Criuse (Top Gun)
Tom Cruise gets in at number 5 as Maverick in Top Gun. He rocks the white t-shirt throughout the movie usually with a pair of levi's and his airforce leather jacket. When you think of Top Gun, you think of white crew neck t-shirts!
Number 4 : Alex Turner
The Arctic Monkeys frontman has been known to "actually rock" the white crew tee on stage and is a true fashion icon of this look. He usually wears with jeans, leather boots, black biker jacket and slicked back hair. A rock legend of his time!
Number 3 : Steve McQueen
The "King of Cool" is next. There is an argument that he should be in at number one as he is probably the single most influential men's style icon of all time, but because he is a fashion legend for so many other looks like the Barbour Wax Jacket, the Baracuta G9 Harrington Jacket and the white plimsoll shoe that we decided he wasn't specific enough to the white crew tee. So we docked him a few spots!
Number 2 : James Dean
Best known probably for his role as Jim Stark in the infamous movie "Rebel Without a Cause", James Dean is remembered as a cultural icon of teenage disillusionment. He died in 1955, in a car crash, way before his time at the age of 24. His image lives on, however, usually wearing a white crew t-shirt and is recognised as an undisputed style icon of his own generation and beyond!
Number 1 : Marlon Brando
One of the most famous Hollywood actors of all time, Brando played numerous roles from Julius Cesar to Vito Corleone in the Godfather. His early days however are what cemented him as a Hollywood great and a true style icon. His roles in A Streetcar Named Desire and The Wild One proved to cement him as an icon of popular culture at the time.
There are so many great images of Brando wearing the white crew tee that we just had to pick him as our Number 1. Let us know what you think? and if you feel that any one else deserves to be in there instead.
