Trends may come and go, but if you invest in one of the best T-shirts for men, you’ll find it’s a menswear mainstay that never grows old. Whether worn as an undergarment, paired with a suit for a more casual office look, or features a bold print and makes a statement all on its own, the best tees offer reliable comfort and an easy touch of laid-back cool.
With the streetwear boom over the past decade, the humble T-shirt has also had something of a glow-up, meaning there are plenty of luxurious options for those unafraid to stand out. Consider a playful, soccer-inspired tee in hot pink from Demna Gvasalia at Balenciaga or a super-soft Missoni tee in one of the house’s classic zig-zag prints.
That’s not to say there aren’t plenty of more day-to-day options out there too. For less than $20, you can pick up a classic style from Uniqlo or Gap in a kaleidoscopic range of colors or pieces from younger brands like Entireworld and Reigning Champ that have made it their mission to master the art of the perfect tee.
The fact that the T-shirt is the ultimate hardworking wardrobe staple doesn’t mean it’s something you can’t have fun with, though. Here, find our selection of the best T-shirts at every price point—and in every color of the rainbow.Out of the Blue
