The t-shirt forms the basis of pretty much every man's casual wardrobe.
I wear t-shirts practically every day. I have ones I wear to work, I have ones I wear around the house, I have ones I wear if I'm going out, I have ones I only wear under things & I have ones I wear just because I love them.
There are 3 main essential tees every guy should own.
|Tom Hardy, James Dean & Marlon Brando|
Keep it classic with a crew neck, ensure the sleeves are a good fit & length (no flapping sails at your elbow) and wear it with a pair of dark jeans. Simple.
|Fred Perry Twin Tipped Polo|
|Ralph Lauren Classic Polo|
|Cuckoo's Nest Birds of Paradise Tee|
The Graphic Tee. This is my favourite part. The bit where I can have fun with my wardrobe. I'm a sucker for a great tee and love bold prints. This summer the stores are crammed with the usual nautical, Hawaiian and sloganed t-shirts, but I've discovered a brand with a brilliant array of affordable, graphic tees, polos & sweat shirts. Check out Cuckoo's Nest Clothing for some proper design-led style. (I'm gutted they're out of my size in the Birds of Paradise tee - I must have it!)
|Cuckoo's Nest Cyberman Back Tee|
Look for that something different, this is the whole point of these t-shirts. Go for repeated over-sized patterns, inverted colours, iconic photo images - anything you fancy! A graphic tee is perhaps the easiest way to show your personality in your clothes, but avoid anything with offensive slogans or witty puns. You don't want that much personality.
