There you have it: keeping your wardrobe in stock with a regular rotation of the best men’s T-shirts is not only a good idea, but also a must.

We don’t need to talk about James Dean’s clothing rebellion. We do not need to talk about the old status of the T-shirt as a simple undershirt. Fortunately, those days are, wonderfully, long gone.

So we agree and embark on a beautiful cotton adventure through the 16 best T-shirts for men that your upper body never knew it needed. Because it’s a torso, and he needs your help with such things.

MOST IMPORTANT POINTS TO TAKE AWAY

The best T-shirts for men, first of all, should be comfortable, breathable and beautiful. And depending on how much you spend, the emphasis should be on sustainability.

My first choice for these and other reasons is the Marine Layer Signature Crew t-shirt. In terms of budget, Kirkland arrives with a comfortable 6-pack.

1. BEST OVERALL T-SHIRT FOR MEN: NAVY LAYER SIGNATURE CREW NECK T-SHIRT

To give you a sense of the commitment of Marine Layer from San Francisco to make high-quality and follishly soft T-shirts, they have developed more than 100 custom-made fabrics over the past ten years. I’ve been wearing Marine Layer Signature Crew T-shirts for years. There is a weight for you that you can feel before you put one on, after which this weight somehow disappears disappears disappears. It’s there, but it’s not.

This pillow feeling is one of the main reasons why I call the legendary Marine Layer crews the best men’s t-shirts on this list. Another important factor is that they are almost indestructible. I’ve thrown everything from camping trips to DIY projects on these tees, and on the other hand they always come out unscathed.

 

2. BEST GRAPHIC: CLOSED PRINTED T-SHIRT

Here you are walking down the street with a hell of fresh air in your white T-shirt made of crispy organic cotton. You meet Hannah and she tells you that she ate Thai for lunch. Cool, Hannah. After all, it’s time for the conversation to end, so get ready to take some time off. You turn around and then it happens. Her courageous and unspeakably perfect choice of clothes hits her like a ton of stones: random beach scene.

This incredibly silly fictional scenario was presented to you by one of the beautiful graphic T-shirts from Closed. The plain white front and the retro beach scene on the back combine their powers to become so inexplicably beautiful that I had no choice but to call it one of the best T-shirts for men.

3. BEST EVERYDAY T-SHIRT: TROPICFEEL PROTRAVEL™ T-SHIRT FOR MEN

Another must-have, the modest but powerful black T-shirt, deserves more attention than it might get. To do just that is a newcomer to the fashion scene, ISTO, and his classic Black T-shirt.

You know what to do with a black T-shirt. Treat this guy like the top layer he is and wear him casually with a pair of jeans. That or dress things up a little with a leather jacket, a suede bomber or a casual blazer.

There are just enough subtle details to highlight it in the right way. But if stripes aren’t your thing or you’re looking for a more versatile look, the Hayden is also available in a handful of other colors, many of which are solid colors.
