If you have a small chest or sloped shoulders, a crew neck will likely suit you best.

It's weird bc their sweatshirts fit me perfectly. This is what I've been picking up lately, and seem to like. Sleeves are a bit tight, but I normally just pull on them a little to stretch them out. I also dabble in the J. Crew Ts buty mainstay is Express. Their stretch cotton Ts hold up well I wear them very often , they're cheap, and they fit nicely to show the shape of your upper body so you have to hit the gym.
I have an entire drawer and half full of plain colored Ts, maybe about by now, though 10 of those are black, I think. Did you get them recently? I bought a pack a couple years ago and I love them. I bought a pack about a month ago and they're terrible.
I used to hate my Kirkland white tees until I put on a little muscle, and now they fit fantastic. Like all Costco clothes, you need to be a little "thick" for a good fit. I like Gustin's tees. I pick them up when they have mystery grab bags.
They're cheaper and you don't have to wait forever. I have Gustin, JCrew, and Uniqlo tees and the gustins are my favorite. Bummer that you can wait upwards of 2 months to get them though. Yeah, actually, pretty recently their founder came onto Reddit and gave away a free tee to the first 50 commenters. I was lucky enough to snag one. It has a nice broken-in look and feel. I'll take some fit pics this evening.
I would say they feel and look pretty similar to J. The sleeves are a tiny bit shorter. A bit over your budget, but I would give 3sixteen a look. I also like MF, Stevenson, and life after denim if you are willing to go a bit more over.
Inside of your budget people tend to love velvasheen and I have had good experiences with Alex mills. One thing I've noticed is that while AA tees fit really well in the chest and stomach, their arms always flare a little bit.
I personally always roll sleeves so it's not a huge deal though. American Apparel has many nice fitting shirts, I like the poly cotton blends. Also, Ubran Outfitters has some store brand T-shirts, I think they are "BDG" or something, they are not hard to miss, they are usually in a big display case and have sales all the time. I own a Uniqlo "Blue Japan" dicks pocket tee that is fucking awesome, I really like the fit I love tee shirts, let me know how the Gustin shirts work out, I'm going to put in an order for the Pistol Lake Tee on Friday, I love the fit of their long sleeve henley.
I absolutely love my Uniqlo Pure Blue Japan pocket tee. Best fitting shirt I own, plus the material is pretty great. Question though, why did you put dicks after? It wasn't a true "pure blue Japan" collab They just used the fucking name to trick people into thinking it was. The name pure blue Japan isn't copyrighted so they used it to sell jeans and tees. The tapered baggy fit jeans for the uniqlo pure blue Japan dicks line are pretty fucking great too That's why I put "dicks" those dicks..
They even came on here and apologized. But I still love those products. So that's why I still recommend them, but I call them dicks. Whoooaaaaa calm it there Cowboy. I know it wasn't a true collab.
Equally, if you feel everything about your upper half is worth flaunting, well, first control the urge to go shirtless, then take up some of this advice that applies to all body types. Black, white, grey and navy; these timeless shades set the foundations of any successful capsule wardrobe.
Jersey or grey marl is a mixture of different shades, and the final textured effect is extremely flattering — especially if searching for a T-shirt to visually enhance your body shape. That said, guys who naturally sweat a lot should tread with caution as grey will make it significantly more noticeable.
Although black remains a popular shade of T-shirt, it does come with pros and cons. On a positive note, a black T-shirt offers a rebellious alternative to the classic white option. However, the colour is known to fade quickly as well as feel warmer in hot conditions. Not always available in standard three-for-two deals or multi-packs, navy is a refined choice that does almost the same job as black, but remains day-friendly due to the colour having more depth.
The rise and rise, and rise of trends such as athleisure and the relaxing of office dress codes means that T-shirts are now more popular than arguably ever before. However, neutral shades can get a bit samey. Keep things fresh and inject some energy into your day-to-day looks by trying out colours. There are no strict rules here — making it an easy, affordable and effective way of experimenting with different hues — but, as a rule of thumb, certain shades look better on certain skin tones.
That means darker hues like camel, bottle green and bold primary colours work best, whereas soft, pastel shades should be avoided.
When it comes to colours, dark skinned guys have their pick. Make the most of this and go bright and bold with primary shades and jewel tones. Just avoid brown, which can bleed into the skin and make you appear ashy. Anyone with more than a passing interest in style will know that there are several necklines on offer.
Yet rather than complicate a look with everything from deep-Vs shudder and boat necks to scooped and raw hems, it pays to stick to the classics.
V-necks naturally elongate the neck, which makes them perfect for shorter guys looking to create the illusion of height, or larger men after a slimming effect. They also provide balance to rounder or wider face shapes. If you have a small chest or sloped shoulders, a crew neck will likely suit you best. Crew necks draw the eye out and create the illusion of squarer shoulders, making you appear broader and better proportioned.
This more substantial neckline also provides balance to men with longer necks or narrow face shapes. Most men tend to favour thicker fabrics rather than lightweight ones; as if the quality is directly related to the weight of the garment. Well, the opposite is actually true for T-shirt materials. Whether worn as a base layer or solo, a T-shirt should feel like second skin. Almost all T-shirts will be cut from cotton or a cotton blend of some kind. The gold standard is Pima or Egyptian cotton, which are made from long staple fibres that last longer, look thinner and feel lighter.
These two kinds of cotton are considered to be the finest available on the market and are utilised by specialist brands such as Sunspel, NN07 and Uniqlo. Cotton blends are also good options. A moderate amount of elastane stretch fibres helps to maintain the shape of the T-shirt, whereas cotton-polyester blends come in at a lower price point and often crease less.
