Most men now make use of the T-shirt in some way during the week. It may be the welcome relief from the formal suit on a weekend. It may be the comfortable top they turn to while at the gym or on the golf course. Or they may be the casual wear for doing stuff with the family. No matter how and when you wear yours, here are some tips on the latest trends.
Linen is a material often associated with trousers, pants and smart jackets but has travelled to the world of t-shirts. Linen or cotton blend linen have a lot of advantages to them including keeping you cool when the weather is warm. They are particularly good for guys who are always warm, allowing them to feel cool and relaxed in the breathable material. For most guys, linen tends to come in neutral shades such as white, beige, stone and tan and this trend continues into the t-shirt. This means they work well with a range of coordinating and contrasting shades such as navy, grey or khaki for both jackets and pants. These tops also work really well with jeans for that stylish yet relaxed look.
For the taller than average guy, the longer length t-shirt will be a staple of his wardrobe. But it seems that even for average height guys, the longer t-shirt is in. The trend seems to have come from the slightly oversized tops that skaters were but has moved into more classic and contemporary categories. Many of the big high street names are offering longer length tops and they are often paired with bright graphics. Colours are varied and they are often paired with slim fitting or even skinny jeans to create a slender silhouette.
The Henley top isn’t anything new but has come back into fashion currently and particularly in its short sleeved form. Often the collarless granddad top with the Henley placket or a long sleeved Henley t-shirt are in a man’s wardrobe but now the short sleeved version is to be added. White is the favoured colour though navy and black is considered a good choice for the tall and slender guy. These shades can add a little width to their frame. Slim fitting jeans make for a good partnership as well as flat fronted trousers for a slightly more formal look.
Long considered a great neutral neckline, the crew neck is very on-trend at the moment. The all-white style is quite favoured by the fashion icons of today though for many, pairing with their favourite jeans is still the way to go. You can add a lightweight bomber jacket or even a blazer for a slightly different style. Make sure you read up on what fit will work best for you as white can be quite unforgiving and needs to fit correctly or risk spoiling the look.
Although not to everyone’s taste, the graphic or printed t-shirt styles are definitely popular. These can range from the brightest, largest NYC graphic to subtle, all over prints. This means there is something for all tastes, if you want to join the trend. Can you see yourself in a graphic or printed t-shirt?
