Best T-shirts For Men

A plain T-shirt is something that we can all go back to if your wardrobe choices are limited. We’ve all been there, looking at our wardrobes and wondering what we’re going to throw on that day. But what many of us don’t realise is that we’re creatures of familiarity – we always revert back to the good old plain tee for something to wear. Stylish, simplistic and clean-cut, we can all rely on the plain tee to see us through the day.

Crew Neck

The crew neck tee is a classic. We all own or have owned one at some point in our lives as they are just so versatile. This is most notably popularised during the 1950s, when stars such as James Dean, Marlon Brando and Elvis Presley sported them with a pair of raw denim jeans and loafers.

The Idle Man premium white T-shirt, is spot on. The fitted white T-shirt is the perfect accompaniment to a pair of raw denim jeans, some classic penny loafers and an overcoat or fitted jacket for good measure. The best plain white T-shirts are made from durable, breathable materials, so try and get one in a quality material such as 100% cotton.

The longline T-shirt is something of a modern interpretation of the plain tee. It has come to light in various style genres as the tee to go for if you’re after something a little alternative. With this tee being more trend lead than anything else, it gives you something a little different to your look without going overboard or too out there.

Try wearing a longline tee with a pair of slim fitted black jeans and a pair of black high top trainers. To heighten the look a little bit more throw over a bomber jacket, such as one of our favourites from Alpha Industries – bang on trend and it will keep you warm well into spring.

A little bit different to the crew-neck T-shirt, the O-neck T-shirt is a cut that most of us adopt when we’re a touch older. With the neck hole cut a little deeper and rounder, it sits on your torso offering a little more flesh than usual.

Team with a pair of wider legged trousers and some white trainers and you’ll have a great, modern look. Throw on an overcoat or Mac (as the season almost demands it) and you’ll have a cracking, simple outfit for this season.

The coloured tee is something that many of us wouldn’t think off wearing. At this time of year, you don’t want to be wearing bright colours or standing out, but I’m here to tell you otherwise.

A vibrant colour can make a nice change when picking out a plain tee. Don’t let the colour put you off – you can easily team this with a pair of grey trousers. Worn with a pair of white slip-on trainers, such as these from Vans, you can have a casual look that can work for the office or during the day.

Navy is a classic but still counts as added colour
