PACT Apparel's New Tees and Tanks Support Artists with Disabilities (Photos)
If you live in a pair of PACT panties, boxers or briefs you'll want to get your hands on the newest addition to their apparel collection: organic cotton/modal tees and tanks for men and women for fall, conveniently available online now.
The philanthropic brand has made a name for themselves in eco-friendly intimates and they are staying true to their company ethos -- past partnerships include the Sierra Club, Oceana, and a host of other environmental non-profits -- and are giving back a portion of proceeds to Creative Growth.
As a spokesperson for PACT fittingly put it, "PACT has been responsibly covering butts for two years, and now they've got your back, too!"
The Creative Growth Art Center, based in Oakland, California, is the inspiration behind the fall 2011 line of tops: They offer v-necks for women and men, as well as a crewneck for men and a tank top for women. The corresponding undergarments, which boasts a design based on art made by Creative Growth artists who are working with disabilities, will brighten up your drawers and are available in bikini for women and boxer briefs and trunks for men .
Pact's underpants will bring a boost of color to your back to school wardrobe -- psst, don't miss our back to school fall fashion guide.
The lavender v-neck tee above is a top pick from the collection -- they sent me a complimentary shirt to try -- it boasts a and a nice alternative to the standard black t-shirt. Surprisingly, there's no white, just lavender, blue, pale yellow, and black in both the tank tops and tees for women.

The guys have the standard black and white as well as true fall colors: navy, olive green, and grey. So I might need to borrow from the guys to get my wardrobe staples or, depending on fit, some lounge wear.
