Alternative Apparel Everyday V-Neck


Alternative Apparel’s Everyday V-Neck is not only soft, it’s also eco-friendly. The trademarked Lenzing fabric used to make this travel shirt is a sustainable cellulose fiber that comes from beechwood pulp—resulting in a material that’s twice as soft as regular cotton.
