This short longsleeve tee from COMME DES GARCONS is voluminous through the body and has socks stitched to the end of the sleeves. The polyester body fabric has some stretch, and a slight sheen, which is a striking contrast from the matte finish of the attached cotton/poly socks. This idea of combination is common in Rei Kawakubo's work, which often features garments made from several fabrics or different knit and woven textures.
