Autumn 17 – The Dad Tee

When I was a tiny kiddo my dad had this amazing sorbet yellow not-quite-jumper, not-quite-shirt pullover. It was a short sleeve and fleecy and I thought it was the most amazing piece of clothing anyone had ever owned.

I have memories and photographic proof of this shirt/jumper/pullover that span about a decade.

I remember him rolling up the garage door to find his 30th surprise birthday party that mum had organised for him. He’s wearing it in a photo in front of the car they bought when I was a tiny little bug. There’s a photo of him and my brother wearing matching ones when we were little kiddos. He wore it over things when it was cold and by itself when it was hot.

When we choose well, the clothes we wear do more than last a long time and clothe us, they hold our memories too.

At The Smallest Tribe our clothes are made to last, designed to mix and match and intended to be passed down through siblings, cousins and friends. They’re the clothes that will be in photos of the big occasions, holidays at the beach and trips to the snow. Scroll through the photos on your phone and they are there in the every day moments too; grocery shopping, play dates, baby cinos.

The Dad Tee is a nod to these photographic memories and a way for me to share a little piece of my childhood with your family.

On a practical level, the Dad Tee is a trans-seasonal piece, designed to be worn all year round. Slightly oversized to be loose and flowy on those last lingering hot summer days, and to be worn over tees as the weather starts to turn cool.

As with everything here at the Tribe, it’s also a sustainable and environmentally sound choice. Made from remnants of last years Summer Confetti Jumpers which themselves utilised dead stock organic cotton fabric – fabric that would otherwise have ended up in land fill.

It’ll be available in 4 colour ways but is super limited in stock. Those who are on the list will get first dibs on Wednesday night. A secret password will be emailed to you allowing you to purchase yours ahead of time. The remaining tees will be available Thursday Feb 23rd.
