A menswear essential. Today, we're looking at t-shirts, a staple in every man's wardrobe.
So, what makes the perfect t-shirt?
Let's not beat around the bush, the fit is everything. It doesn't matter what material it is, the colour it is or anything else you can think of. If it doesn't fit right, it will never look good.
Ape to Gentleman state that "The most important aspects of fit to consider are length and shoulder width. The seams that connect the body to the arms of the shirt should sit right on the corners of your shoulders"
A few of our favourite brands for t-shirts
The L.A.-based brand creates luxurious casualwear that is designed to be lived in, with washed-out colours and combed cotton construction adding to the relaxed, West Coast feel.
The French ready-to-wear brand is known the world over for its trademark simple styling and premium essentials. Naturally, plain T-shirts are a big part of this, with an ever-evolving roster of tasteful options present season after season.
Part of the H&M family, Arket’s selection of wares is far more tightly curated than that of its parent company, with a selection of clean, pared-back staples forming the foundation of its seasonal collections.
