Every man needs a fantastic selection of men’s t-shirts to choose from. But how do you ensure the t-shirts you’re choosing are the right style for you? And how exactly should men’s t-shirts fit? 


We’re answering all of these important questions below! From the best styles of men’s t-shirts for every occasion to finding the perfect size for yourself, read on to learn everything you need to know about choosing the best t-shirts for your wardrobe. 

Choosing the right style men’s t-shirts

Wondering which style of tees for men is the best option for your closet? We suggest having a wide variety to choose from! That way, no matter what sort of event you’re attending, you always have the best men’s t-shirts on hand for the job.


Here are some of the styles of tees for men we offer at Perk Clothing and some suggestions for how and where to wear them. 

Men’s pocket t-shirts

Men’s pocket t-shirts like Perk Clothing’s Low Key Pocket Tee are as casually stylish as it gets!


Pocket t-shirts are the perfect mix of easy, confident, and effortless fashion. Consider this t-shirt part of your go-to weekend outfit. When paired with your favorite pair of jeans or sleek chinos, this wardrobe staple will keep you feeling comfortable and cool. 

The perfect Perk crewnecks

When you need something undoubtedly classic and versatile, reach for one of Perk Clothing’s Feel Good crewneck tees, made with high quality, 100% Pima cotton.


If you only have one t-shirt in your life, make it this one! It can work for practically any occasion. Dress it down with jeans and sneakers for classic weekend vibes or pair it with chinos, a blazer, and your nicest dress shoes for some extra confidence in your presentation at work.


No matter how you style this t-shirt, it’s sure to keep you looking fantastic. 

Long-sleeve t-shirts

Stay warm and stylish with Perk’s unparalleled long-sleeve t-shirts for men. Just like all of our other t-shirts, these offer endless comfort and sleek style–but you never have to worry about getting too chilly thanks to the long sleeves.


This is one of the best t-shirts for men out there thanks to its versatility and quality. It’s the perfect layering piece for added warmth in the winter, and it’s also light enough to wear on warmer days for some UV protection.


We suggest wearing this underneath a button-up when it’s colder outside, or on its own with a pair of chinos for a simple, easy look to wear both in and out of the office all year long. 

How should a men’s t-shirt fit?

Once you’ve determined the best style t-shirt to suit your needs, it’s time to find your perfect fit! 


When determining your proper men’s t-shirt size, there are a few factors to consider. First of all, let’s talk about the overall fit: just like any other piece of clothing, a t-shirt shouldn’t be so tight that you look (or feel) constricted, but it also shouldn’t be so large and baggy that it looks like you’re swimming in it. We’re sure you can figure that much out on your own, though! 


Business Insider suggests going with a slim fit (just like the t-shirts we offer at Perk Clothing!). A slim-fit t-shirt will hug your biceps in a way that accentuates them, but you shouldn’t be able to see every detail of your body underneath the fabric.


Additionally, consider where your sleeves rest. On a proper-fitting men’s short-sleeved t-shirt, the sleeves should rest just above your biceps, without billowing out.


Now, let’s talk about hem. For many men, this is a personal preference, and will also depend on the style you’re going for. However, a good rule of thumb is to aim for a hem that rests at your belt line. A longer hem, such as one that reaches the middle of your fly, is fine too! We just suggest avoiding anything shorter than your belt line–unless you’re going for a crop-top look, which is likely frowned upon in your office. 


Finally, the collar is another major factor to consider when finding the right fit. A crewneck like the kind on our t-shirts at Perk Clothing is likely your best option. It should stay flat, resting along your shoulders and the base of your neck. You don’t want to be revealing your collarbones by any means, but if it’s too tight, it will look and feel constricting.
