The Crew Neck style
Probably, the most ubiquitous t-shirt that you will encounter on
men is the crew neck t-shirt. It is characterized by a round,
circular neckline that fits snugly at the neck and works best on
men with long, narrow faces and sloped shoulders to create a
well-rounded silhouette. For a timeless look, nothing beats the
crew neck t-shirt.
The V Neck style
As the name suggests, this type of t-shirt forms a V shape at the
neck. Guys with round faces and broad shoulders can take advantage
of this neckline as it flatters their body type giving them a
slimmer look. It can be paired with an unbuttoned shirt wherein the
V neckline doesn’t show from underneath the shirt.
The Henley Y neck style
The Henley or Y-neck t-shirt is best described as a hybrid between
the crew and the V necklines. It comes with a buttoning placket
that runs several inches deep and fits perfectly over a well-built,
muscular chest. The addition of buttons increases its aesthetic
appeal while maintaining an elusive kind of machismo.
Polo t shirt collar styles
Polo t-shirts are made famous by golfers and the collared variety
adorned with buttons adds a sense of formality to the look. Men
with a lean frame can take the most advantage of this t-shirt type.
The Scoop Neck style
The scoop neck is another variation of the crew neck where the
round neckline hangs a few inches below the collarbone. Although
not as rugged looking as the other necklines, it has a subtlety
that complements the metrosexual look.
Types of sleeves
Raglan sleeve types
Raglan sleeve t-shirts, which are available in three quarter and
full- length sleeves, take inspiration from the baseball uniforms
in the cut and design aspect. In this type of t-shirt, the sleeves
are attached to the shirt on a diagonal seam rather than the
generic straight up-and-down seam which is more common.
Types of sleeve length
The cut and fit of the sleeves of a t-shirt can make the difference
between a guy who knows his way around a shirt and someone who is
trying too hard to impress. Let us have a look at some of the
classic sleeve lengths and the best way to wear them.
Sleeveless t shirt style
Also known as the tank top, the sleeveless t-shirt has a deeper
neck and the straps vary in width from being very thin to almost
covering the shoulders. It is perfect for the heavily muscular body
as you can show off your toned upper torso with panache.
Cap sleeves t shirt style
The cap sleeves add a funky twist to the regular sleeves. They
extend to some distance over the shoulders without covering under
the arm to form a cap-like extension.
Half, three quarter and full-length sleeve types
The most traditional type of sleeves yet the most flattering on men
is the half-sleeve t-shirt. The best way to wear it is to ensure
that the sleeve hits the midpoint of your upper arm and hugs the
This type of sleeves covers the entire upper arm ending below the
elbow and reaching varying lengths on the forearm.
These type of sleeves need no introduction as they are one of the
staple t-shirts worn by most men. Long sleeves were always
associated with shirts but made the crossover to t-shirts, and the
resulting look is nothing shy of a fashion favorite.
T shirt fit
An ill-fitting t-shirt can be the ultimate deal breaker in terms of
style. On the other hand, a well-fitted t-shirt will do wonders for
your appearance. A good fit means that the t-shirt should fit
snugly around your torso with enough room for air to circulate and
be able to flatter your body shape.
If your t-shirt appears baggy with the sleeves flopping down and
drapes lifelessly over your torso, you know that you have gone up
one size too many. Contrarily, if the t-shirt makes your belly and
arms ooze out of the tee in weird ways, then it looks like you are
trying too hard with a small sized tee. Guys with broad shoulders
and a narrow waist should always opt for tapered cuts that draw
attention to the waist and projects an attractive V-shaped
Slim fit t shirt styles
A slim fit tee is also known as a body fit tee because it hugs the
shape of your body rather than hanging over it lifelessly. It acts
as the perfect undershirt and can be paired with a shirt, jacket or
Baggy style t shirt
These have made a comeback from the 90’s and finds a place in an
evolved fashionable man’s wardrobe along with the slim fits. But be
cautious that a baggy fit does not necessarily mean oversized but
rather something wider and loose in the sleeves area.
Muscle fit style t shirt
Men with broad shoulders and muscular body types can make the most
out of these body-hugging muscle fit tees. Gym lovers can flaunt
their best assets while donning the muscle tee. Pair it wi
