Duke & Winston t-shirts have virtue even if you don't

Inspired by Benjamin Franklin’s list of 13 virtues by which to live, Seun Olubodun designed a series of four tees with the hope of inspiring those striving to fulfill their American Dream. A sophisticated update to the graphic tee, it’s the perfect casual wear for any well-dressed gentleman. The tees come in Light Navy, Heather Grey, White, or Cranberry and are available for $32. Perfectly paired with a blazer or simply alone, show the world your style is virtuous even if you're not.

When Seun Olubodun started Duke & Winston in 2009, he had one mission in mind: to create casual clothing for guys who favor substance, refinement, and practicality above the flashy and sometimes downright barbaric styles that have flooded the men's market of recent (you won't find oversized graphics of skulls, crosses, tigers or skull & crossbones carrying tigers riding unicorns here, thank you very much). Using his English Bulldog Duke as his initial inspiration, he created a single graphic tee featuring Duke’s unmistakable mug, which was soon selling out at local trunk shows and boutiques.
