Meet the Lake Day Tee

One of the best ways to spend a summer day is hanging out at the lake. There is something special about being out on the water, enjoying the waves and the sunshine. The Lake Day Tee was inspired by those lake vibes—the main body stitch pattern is representative of the beams of the dock, and the feather and fan stitch characterizes the gentle waves created by the wake of a passing boat. This seamless, top-down, circular yoke tee is bound to have you daydreaming about your next sunny day out on the water!
