Wardrobe basics are given a luxe reboot with the Los Angeles-based brand Alternative Apparel. Beginning life in 1995 with the classic T-shirt, remade in soft and sustainable fabrics and expertly cut to create the perfect fit, the label has gained a reputation for bringing a high fashion finish to core essentials. Extending its range to include a full line of ready-to-wear, look no further for those casualwear staples with a fashion finish. See its hoodies for short-sleeved designs in French Terry, classic grey marl sweaters and zip-ups finished with hand worked detailing. Basic essentials for any closet.
