If you ask us, being stylish and being comfortable should be one and the same. As the founder of the "original tee", Los Angeles-based Michael Stars has pioneered casual chic tees since its founding more than two decades ago, when a chance meeting with a beachside artist inspired South Africa-native Michael Cohen to launch a unisex T-shirt line. After meeting his future wife, Suzanne, the pair created the Michael Stars known today for its wide selection of perfectly fitted tees, signature "shine" fabric, ultra soft layering pieces and plush cashmere sweaters. Michael Stars opened its first store in Manhattan Beach in 2001 - nine years later, the brand has grown to 11 retail stores and distribution throughout all 50 states and internationally. Michael Stars styles have been featured on the pages of top-selling magazines such as Vogue, Lucky, Elle and InStyle, and the brand counts such celebrities as Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Angelina Jolie and Jessica Biel among its fans.
