Directly translated from its French, this Clare Vivier Blue Tee ($85) reads, "The habit does not make the monk." Huh? The phrase is embroidered onto an 18th century men's vest that Vivier found while gathering inspiration for this shirt, part of a mini-collection in collaboration with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Although we don't really say that phrase in English, it can be translated to something more akin to "don't judge a book by its cover." Except... we'd want people to judge us a little bit by our "habit", because this shirt is rad.
