It's been a long old winter, even by British standards. But, it seems that the flowers are starting to bloom, the sun is finally putting in an appearance and with any luck, we'll all soon be out basking in the warmer weather. In order to make sure that you get the most out of spring 2013, we've scoured the collections of some of the biggest names in streetwear to bring you our top 5 pick of urban tees available on the market right now. So, when you're out and about soaking up some rays, you're guaranteed to make an impact, in all the right ways.
Penfield Midvale T-shirt -With its soft pastille colouring and vintage feel, this tee is just about as summery as they come. Try teaming it with a pair of loose-fit chinos to create a casual daytime look, and just add a lightweight jacket (check out Libertine Libertine's pavement jacket) for a smarter evening look. Features include a hidden chest pocket, and rib binding at the neck.
The Riot Club Fury T-shirt - This vintage look T-shirt takes its inspiration from the 1979 American cult-classic film, 'The Warriors'. This film has been hugely influential in hip-hop music and urban culture, and the film print on the front not only gives this tee an authentic retro feel, but is also a nice nod to this most iconic of movies. It's actually from The Riot Club's winter collection, but it's such a unique and awesome design you could rock it any time of the year - all and all, one of our favourite T-shirts on the market right now.
Crooks & Castles Monopoly T-shirt - Black - This regular fit black T-shirt features a 'Monopoly'-inspired burglar making off with two swag bags. Funny, irreverent and a little controversial, this T-shirt sums up exactly what Crooks & Castles are all about. Made up of 100% cotton this piece comes straight from their spring/summer 2013 collection. It's already proving to be pretty popular, so if you want to get your hands on one, you'd better act fast.
Supremebeing Reverse T-shirt - Okay, so this T-shirt might not be to everyone's taste, but that's exactly why we love it so much. Streetwear is all about being an individual and daring to be different and with its muted salmon colouring and reversed pocket detailing, this piece is guaranteed to have you standing out from the crowd. Try teaming it with their matching 'Washed Red Icon Snapback', to create a bold statement look.
Libertine Libertine Brake Pocket T-Shirt - We chose this piece because there's nothing else like it on the market right now. The unique woven striped pocket detailing provides the perfect contrast to the off-white speckled effect cotton. Try teaming it with a pair of lightweight loose-fit jeans and a pair of Vans shoes for an up-to date and unashamedly summery look.
Now you're armed with all the knowledge you need to ensure that your look is fresh and up to date for spring 2013. Now all that's left to do is get out there and do some shopping!
