Well, if all the possibilities of the collars have been used to make an invisible T-shirt, what else can be thought of to make an invisible T-shirt? That’s right, the color. The thought behind it is that if you give the T-shirt the same color as the skin, you won’t see the T-shirt. A skin tone T-shirt as it were. That’s right, it has to matter to you. And to be honest, it does indeed seem to help, a Khaki T-shirt. Because if aren’t wearing a T-shirt, you can’t see a T-shirt. Rather logical. And what color do you have on under your dress shirt? Your own color, skin tone. The skin tone T-shirt was born.
What color is skin tone actually ?
Does everyone have the same skin tone? Asking the question is answering the question. It’s a simple – no. There are dozens of skin tones. And there are so many different colors of T-shirts for sale at the same time, that everyone can choose his or her skin tone. The term “skin tone T-shirt” is therefore incorrect when you are talking about one single color. As if that color would be the dominant, all-determining color. At the very least, that doesn’t sound inclusive, something that Undiemeister® wants to be. What matters is to find a color that doesn’t show through, so not through the dress shirt. Yes of course, that depends on the shirt: what color is that shirt and how thick, because of the possible transparency.
Undiemeister® deliciously stubborn. Khaki T-shirt? Skin color T-shirt? Desert Sand!
You may know our philosophy behind the choice of colors for the T-shirts and boxer shorts. All colors are chosen based on nature. So the challenge was how, from natural shades, we could approach a skin tone T-shirt as closely as possible. And that is not an easy task, we don’t mind telling you. Because nature has a lot of colors to offer and of course we wanted to find the most beautiful ones out of the many choices we had.
The deserts as a source of inspiration for the Khaki T-shirt
Our design department came up with the inspiration for a khaki T-shirt color in the end for the many shades you can find in deserts. Maybe you think deserts have a, uh, sand color? Or dark red, as you sometimes see in nature photos? Yes and no. Just think of the color white of snow. For most people snow is just white, nothing special about it. Yes, beautiful, especially when it’s Christmas, but white is white. But if you ask an inhabitant of the North Pole what color snow has, he can tell you more than 1,000 shades. Wow, 1,000! And the same is true for the desert.
