For men, it isn’t always easy to buy fashionable clothes; there simply isn’t the variety of choice within men’s fashion. One item of clothing that bucks the trend, though, is the t-shirt. T-shirts are fantastic because they come in such a wide variety of styles, colours, and designs, that the simple addition of a t-shirt to any outfit enables men to stand out from the crowd, when the rest of their wardrobe is uniform. After all, men’s fashion mostly involves plain jeans, plain shirts, plain jackets, and plain shoes. Making a few informed purchases can do wonders to a man’s style of dress.
Here we discuss some of the different styles that are available in men’s t-shirts, providing fashion advice that will be invaluable for the fashion conscious men of the world.
T-shirts should be a staple part of any man’s wardrobe, when consideration is taken as to the kind of t-shirt that can be teamed with an outfit; the chances are that men can create a fashionable, trendy, and sophisticated look. Men can make t-shirts the focal part of any outfit, adding a flare of individuality, vibrancy, and colour, which will imbue the wearer with an incredible sense of confidence.
Regarding design, there are three broad categories of t-shirt; each with their own connotations and takes on style. Each style of t-shirt says something about the wearer.
These are a traditional style of t-shirt, generally associated with an older generation. The neck begins as a v-neck, pointing down to the centre of the body, from the chin, but y-necks have an extended opening that finishes partway down the chest. Although associated with older men, these t-shirts are extremely trendy now, and form part of the preppy, geek-chic, movement.
As described above, these men’s t-shirts have a neckline that comes in from a wide angle at the neck, to a point at the top of the chest. This style of t-shirt forms part of the classic look, they look great when wearing informal suits, as they reveal a laid back, and yet sophisticated attitude; these t-shirts say of the wearer ‘I am comfortable with who I am, and I know how to carry myself well’. As a style, they can be particularly difficult to carry-off well, and men need a great deal of confidence to wear them with style.
Crew Neck T-Shirts
These t-shirts have a rounded neck. They are extremely popular, and the most common style of t-shirt available to men. They are good to wear for men who are slowly embarking on a fashionable look, experiment with colour, style, and design, and if you get it wrong, this style of t-shirt is much more forgiving than the others are.
The specific design is dependent largely on personality. There are amazing ranges of graphic t-shirts on sale today, all of which have the merits. Men can choose between unusual prints, or plain t-shirts. T-shirts should be used to spice up an outfit. For instance, wear a nice pair of dark blue jeans, black boots, and a white shirt, coupled with a futuristic design graphic t-shirt – in a colour that suits your hair, eyes, and skin – to create a funky look, which is difficult to get wrong. By keeping the rest of your outfit plain but well groomed, and adding a funky t-shirt, the result is a good look.
