Next Level T-Shirts
Has there ever been a better time to sport a T-shirt? We don't think so. For one thing, menswear is enjoying a shift to more relaxed styles and for another, it seems like there's a wealth of well-made T-shirts on the market these days. Sure, you'll have to pay a bit more than your standard three-pack styles, but these small-batch shirts are worth the investment. Crafted from quality materials, today's best tees are cut into subtle, but thougshtful designs with body-conscious fits. Herewith, the ten best our editors swear by.
Buck Mason, $24
A lightweight style with a rounded shirttail hem,
cut from a lightly textured club cotton material.
Hiro Clark, $78
We like the trim sleeves and midweight cotton jersey fabric—substantial but not too heavy.
Alex Mill, $55
We love the details: slub cotton, triple needle stitched collar and woven gussets at the hem.
The Academy Brand, $29.95
One of the best lightweight, slouchy styles we tried, this has a wide collar and raw edge hem.
This washed and relaxed tee is crafted from an ultra soft hemp and organic cotton fabric.
This durable cotton tee is tube-knit (meaning no side seams) and has a thick, reinforced collar.
John Elliott + Co., $80
Cut from a 50/50 Supima cotton and micro modal blend with a long, lean and relaxed fit.
A vintage-inspired design in a modern micro stripe with a contrasting collar and pocket trim.
An expertly-tailored take on the classic white T-shirt, cut from light, texturized cotton jersey.
Dyer & Jenkins, $18
A no-frills style with perfect proportions, made from organic cotton that's been enzyme washed.
A Note on Fit
The key to making a good T-shirt look great? Nailing the fit. You want one that traces your body without being too clingy. Take a page out of Justin Theroux's playbook. He nails the slim-but-not-too-snug look whether sporting one tee or layering two together.
