What’s better than slipping into a comfy tee, sweatshirt, and joggers combo when you’re ready to get cosy? Slipping into consciously created versions, of course. And what’s even better than that? Sharing the bliss with your loved ones. Luckily The Classic T-Shirt Company—one of our favourite and highest rated brands ever—has just rolled out the red carpet of ethical and sustainable loungewear with its latest drop.
From a range of chic new t-shirt colourways and styles to hot-off-the-press sweatshirts and joggers for men and women, you’re bound to find the perfect addition to your wardrobe or gift idea for the holiday season below. But first, what makes these cosies so conscious in the first place?
Wearing The Classic T-Shirt Co is like hugging the planet
Doing the right thing brings us joy. That’s why we source only 100% organic cotton to create durable and sustainable clothes, provide fair treatment for all of our farmers and workers, and donate a portion of profits to charities.Olga and Paul Garibian – Co-Founders
Rated “Great” across the board, this US-based brand ticks a lot of boxes. Not only is everything made from 100% GOTS certified organic cotton, but workers are also paid a living wage across the supply chain, and animal-based fabrics are left out of the equation. The clothes are expertly designed, luxuriously soft, and feature a flattering fit in sizes up to 2XL in women’s and 3XL in men’s. They are even pre-shrunk and pre-dyed, meaning they will last and last like new. And no matter your taste in tees, there’s a style and colour for you and yours.
One of our favourite things about The Classic T-Shirt Company is that they ensure every product sold gives back by pledging 1% of equity, profits, and time to causes they believe in. From providing safe water for people in need to planting trees to cleaning up the ocean, your next purchase will leave the world a little better. “It may not seem like much, but this commitment today can make a huge impact tomorrow. We believe that every business has the power to give, and that philanthropy and success should be intertwined. That’s true sustainability in action.” The brand donates 50% to Water For People, 25% to Armenia Tree Project, and 25% to The Ocean Cleanup, so you can truly shop your values.

Gift a little more good these holidays
So, why do The Classic T-Shirt Co pieces make such good gifts? Because they suit people at any stage of their sustainable fashion journey. Whether you want to introduce your parent or partner to higher quality basics that will stand the test of time, or you have a colleague or cousin who champions ethical fashion every chance they get, they are sure to appreciate the thought that went into choosing to buy from a brand that supports the planet and all its inhabitants from seed to shelf.
For a nice touch, why not let your loved one know which charities the purchase will donate 1% to, so they can see how their comfy new tee or sweatshirt is directly helping people and the planet? Bonus: the packaging is gorgeous and eco-friendly, made from recycled and recyclable paper and printed with algae ink. It even comes with a little info card explaining how the garment is good for the world, which we love.
