GUESS BY MARCIANO-GRAPHIC TEES THAT GRAB
PUNCHED UP DESIGNS FOR WHAT WE WEAR MOST

Our poor postman. We know he has his chiropractor on speed-dial with all of those subway weapon worthy Fall Fashion magazines clogging up our mailbox.
And yes, those ads make us want to swipe our credit cards and do some damage at Bergdorf’s…
But the reality is, we wear denims or our fav black silk stovepipe trousers with cozy, comfy, trendy tees…like 80% of our waking hours...in all weather.
Which is why we did a double take at the colorful tees by Guess by Marciano that just hit retail shelves.
The deeply saturated hues on the tops are courtesy of a dye technique eerily coined dye sublimation-whereby the ink is absorbed, and then a burn out technique (cotton is burned into the tees creating shades of colors and patterns)…magically conjures up designs that are eyeball catching.
And being tees by Guess by Marciano-the prices are realistic ($34-$59).
