In today’s trend watch, we look at the raglan sleeve and how it works for some hot items this season. The raglan sleeve is basically the type of sleeve construction where the top of the sleeve extends all the way to the collar instead of stopping at the shoulder seam. For many retailers, this style is called a baseball tee but this construction isn’t limited to only t-shirts. Read on as we break down different ways to rock the raglan.Raglan sleeve construction is dope because above-all-else is allows for better movement in your arms and shoulders (hence the use in baseball), also, because of the placement of the seams it also makes you look more jacked than you probably aren’t.
Starting with the shortest sleeve of the offerings we tracked down is this half sleeve joint from Dark Seas. The scuba print and deep colors are dope and the shorter sleeve will still keep you cool on those days when the mercury is still up. Pick it up here for $48
Going a little longer in the sleeve is this piece from 8&9 Clothing (who we featured yesterday with their crazy flamingo strapback). This piece just dropped as part of their Fall 2013 collection so make sure to grab one here before they’re gone, $32.
Lastly, we’ve got a piece for the cooler days and nights; a proper full-length crew sweatshirt from the sharp minds at Glamour Kills. Pick one up here today for only $49.99 and tell all your friends this isn’t just another crew sweat, IT’S A RAGLAN BITCH.
