For Kiki Layne, fashion has Fanart Design Weezer Bryders shirt .never been simply about looking good. Prior to her first Met Gala tonight, the 27-year-old star of If Beale Street Could Talk and the upcoming adaptation of Richard Wright’s Native Son has spent the past year and a half making waves on the red carpet. Styled by Wayman Bannerman and Micah McDonald, Layne has worn everything from fresh-off-the-runway Chloé to custom Dior with gusto but she views the attention garnered for her style as an opportunity to make a difference, including her debut on the Met’s red carpet.

Of course I love the dressing-up part, but I’m representing all the women who look like me,” says Layne on the phone from London Fanart Design Weezer Bryders shirt . “Fashion, film, and music—all these industries have ways of putting us in a box. Ultimately my goal is to push those boundaries.”For her first Met Gala, Layne’s decision to dress in Gucci came after serious introspection. Set to wear a custom Alessandro Michele design to the Academy Awards this year she changed her mind after learning of February 2019’s blackface controversy. “That whole situation went down two weeks before Oscars,” says Layne, who wanted to spend the night in a look that reflected the significance of her film’s nomination. “My team and were like, there is just no way. I couldn’t represent If Beale Street Could Talk and wear their clothes. When we [explained] to the Gucci team they understood completely. Even their being respectful [of our decision] let me know that, okay, I’m going to give them time to figure things out.”The online outrage that occurred after the production of a $890 balaclava jumper with imagery that mirrored the offensive caricatures associated with minstrel shows prompted Gucci to pull the item and rethink its corporate culture. Rather than issue a boilerplate mea culpa, the brand accepted responsibility and began the process of change. “What I appreciated about Gucci’s response to of all of this is that they actually went further than simply apologizing,” says Layne, noting the launch of several initiatives aimed at a top-to-bottom revision of Gucci’s approach to diversity at all levels. “They’re creating scholarships, they’re creating new roles, and opportunities for inclusion within their company.”

These shirts are great. There are many reviews stating that they are not heavyweight but they are much heavier than the regular ones. Also, I would order one size larger than normal because they do shrink in the wash. I purchased the white and they are very bright and not faded at all and unlike many T-shirt’s, they are not too narrow but just the right width. Definitely worth purchasing.

Good outside work T-shirt
Bought these for working in my yard. They are just the right size (XL) and length. On me, the hem is down to the bottom of the front pocket openings on my jeans and the fit is slightly loose, not figure hugging.
I’m not sure what the definition of “heavy” is supposed to be. These seem to feel slightly thicker than the Hanes or Fruit of the Loom multi-pack white T-shirts you can buy at your local supermarket, but you can still easily see through them when held up to a sunny window, for example.
I waited to do this review until one shirt was washed to record the amount of shrinkage and see how the texture changed. New, they are almost silky in feel. Very nice. Once washed, they lose that and become slightly rougher, like any other T-shirt. After one wash, as shown by the photo of washed over top of new, they have lost maybe 1″-1.5″ on length, but the width change was minimal and the fit is still a loose XL. The color faded slightly also.
It’s a T-shirt and it’ll meet my intended use, but I wouldn’t say they were “special”

Nice thick shirt
This is thick material, which is what my husband wanted. Didn’t shrink after wash and dry. Nice blue color.
