Reader wondering what wide-neck white t-shirt Ryan Gosling was wearing in his film Only God Forgives:
Big fan of your website. I was wondering if you could shed any light on the scoop neck t shirt worn by Ryan Gosling in the upcoming ‘Only God Forgives’? I’ve seen similar styles at Zara, Asos and Acne, but nothing exactly right.
It appears to be a low profile scoop neck with rolled sleeves (not sure if modified or factory) and a shoulder seam that hangs off the shoulder. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Keep up the great work and thanks for your time!
Wide-Neck White T-Shirts
thanks for being a fan of the website! crazy topic huh??
you know, i’ve seen a bunch of stars wearing similar types of those tee shirts. one that i see more often is adam levine, who wears something similar.
of the scoop neck undershirts i know about, i think they are all too deep to be that particular t-shirt that ryan is wearing.
personally, i’d refer to that type of neck line as being “open neck” or “wide neck”. i know american apparel has stuff like that, as does hugo boss, but i don’t think that’s what ryan is wearing.
here are some others:
though, i really don’t think any of the above t-shirts are the one that ryan gosling wore in only god forgives. the movie was shot in thailand, so it’s hard to say whether or not his t-shirt came from over there, or if it was something that was brought over from their u.s. based crew.
i’m going to do a little poking around and see if i can find out the answer. no guarantees of course, but if i can find out, i’ll let you know.
UPDATE: Could it be this Scoop Neck T-Shirt?
UPDATE #2: Could it be a Levi’s Vintage Clothing 1930s Bay Meadows Tee?
This just in from Jonny, the original reader who wrote in with the question.
Here’s another possible contender:
It’s from Levi’s Vintage Clothing – a company which Gosling has been known to wear t-shirts from. This is a strong possibility, as the timeline would make sense from when he was seen wearing other shirts from the company. What are your thoughts?
Update #3: Jonny Bought the Levis Vintage 1930s Bay Meadows Tee
Just an update, I got the LVC t shirt. I’ve included a photo. Still not sure if it’s the correct one, but I have a feeling that it is.
Either way it’s one of the best t shirts I’ve ever owned. I got it on sale at unionmadegoods.com.
Although you can’t really see them, the jeans in the photo are actually the correct ones from the movie – Altamont Wilshire in Stone Wash.
