12 Of The Best Men’s T-Shirts

A guy needs a few things to look good. A finely tailored suit can give you authority and sophistication. A great pair of fitted jeans is essential for any casual night out. And the perfect white t-shirt, well, let’s just say there’s something classic and mysterious about a guy who knows how to rock a t-shirt well. Marlon Brando didn’t need any lessons.

A t-shirt with a pair of jeans and boots is the simplest, most basic, cleanest-looking outfit you can have. But fabric quality matters, people. If you’re wearing a tee under your oxford as an undershirt, an itchy one can ruin your day. Cotton is the gold standard of materials, with Supima cotton being a preferred blend for comfort. If staying cool is a priority, some tees mix in polyester for a sweat-wicking and more flexible fabric. And if you’re looking for something even more premium-feeling (and -looking), there are slub cotton shirts with a little extra worn texture to them.

Below, you’ll find a dozen of the best white t-shirts for men. The prices range from $20 or less to $80 so you can shop around for what fits your budget and stock up. Because you want to have an ample supply of this wardrobe staple at the ready.

New York-based Kule makes basics that aren’t boring. Their well-made t-shirts feature stripes and graphic prints but aren’t so over the top that you can’t wear them every day. This Breton-inspired striped shirt comes in different colors, has Kule’s signature taping at the hem and looks great on its own or layered under a blazer.
