Give the New
T-Shirt a Try

Today's coolest tees are relaxed,
roomy and ready for summer

Taylor Stitch's heavy bag tee ($45) is made utilizing upcycled and recycled yarns, which are shredded and respun to a create a sustainable fabric that's also incredibly soft.

The T-shirt is a simple garment. A staple if there ever was one. And while the humble tee often takes a back seat for much of the year, once spring is in full effect and throughout the summer, this easygoing shirt really gets to shine. Wearing the right one can make the difference between looking slick and with it or just sloppy and lazy. Of course, you no doubt have a good amount of tees already in your wardrobe, but there's a new T-shirt taking hold in menswear right now. It's as if the classic tee has been rebuilt for an age of statement sneakers and sling bags. They're a little bit boxy and stylishly relaxed, boasting such high-end details as dropped shoulders, wider collars and a roomier body. They're cut from sturdy cotton fabrics and look as sharp with your jeans and shorts as they do with a crisp pair of pleated pants. But you've got to know where to look for these new tees, so we've pulled together the 10 best options on the market right now.
