I have a basic, set in sleeve tee pattern I've made a few times for The Man. It's cobbled together from a free Burdastyle pattern modified with tracings of his favorite store-bought tees. I've been wanting to try a raglan tee pattern for him and, wouldn't you know, Jessica turned up a vintage Stretch-and-Sew pattern that fills that bill.
According to the envelope this pattern dates from 1967. Though this guy looks like he's edging into the 70's.
|70's dude with dark glasses|
- close fit
- high crew neck - no v-necks please!
- long enough to stay tucked in to a pair of jeans
- and a pocket that can hold a slew of vintage fountain pens
|Pocket with a heavy load of Mont Blancs|
This pattern should fill all my male raglan tee needs. It has a long sleeve version, a turtle neck version and instructions to split it up the front and make a cardigan.

And here's the Kirsten Kimono Tee I scrapped together from the remnants from my Trapezoid Top. My favorite tee pattern. I just love it.
