The Everyday Kit
Fundamentals of the everyday dressing routine. Find your favorite combo and put on repeat.
The Tee Kit
Combine your own T-shirt set from ABC’s range of essentials wardrobe shelf styles.
The reliability of a perfectly plain T-shirt cannot be overestimated. From workdays to weekends, it is one of the most useful garments in the wardrobe, easy to pair with almost anything and great to build outfits around: when layering, seeking comfort or casualising an office suit.
Our range of T-shirts contains the fundamental styles of the wardrobe shelf. All are made with soft yet crisp cotton that stand the test of regular washing without losing fit and feel. They are cut with close attention to proportion, not too tight or loose, ensuring clean and flattering silhouettes.
The Midweight T-shirt
A standard design in the wardrobe, cut with a regular fit and made from soft, firm cotton.
The Heavyweight T-shirt
Final-layer favourite with a slightly more relaxed fit, made from sturdy cotton with vintage-like feel.
The Oversized T-shirt

Socks are a small but essential part of the wardrobe, making sure that your feet feel great from morning to night. The ABC line of socks are made from high-quality organic cotton, supima cotton or mercerized cotton to ensure durability, dryness and wearing comfort. The design is kept in basic black to simplify washing, pairing and restocking.

Care For your basics
Sustainability is at the core of ARKET, naturally incorporated in all of our processes. One of the greatest things we can do to reduce our environmental footprint is to make our garments last longer by caring for them and thereby elongate their lifespan.
It is a given that garments you wear closest to your body on an everyday basis need to be washed regularly but by doing this in a more conscious way you can reduce the effect on the environment.
Don’t wash your T-shirts more often than necessary. Spot-treating and steaming T-shirts is a great alternative to washing. In between washes, air to regain a fresh feeling or use garment refresher spray.
Wash all basics at the lowest temperature and the shortest cycle possible to save water and use a natural, biodegradable liquid rinse. Shake it to minimise wrinkles and hang or lay flat to air-dry.
