Owning at least one perfect white t-shirt - or preferably, two or three - is essential. It's been a wardrobe staple since a broody , and it's up there with a good pair of jeans or a navy blazer as one of the most versatile pieces in your wardrobe - as sharp worn alone in the summer as it is layered when it's cold.
But how does a man find his perfect white t-shirt? The quest for that ideal fit - snug on the arms and shoulders but loose and flattering around the torso - can be surprisingly difficult. The key is to buy quality and experiment with brands and styles until you find the best option for you. Below is a list of Esquireim电竞官网--approved white t-shirts from a range of price points. Go forth and look great.
Simon Porte's debut menswear collection is a thing of simple beauty. This breathable cotton-jersey white tee - embroidered with the designer's signature - is a case in point. Consider it your easy way to start wearing one of the most in-demand designers around at the moment.
Many brands claim to make the 'definitive' t-shirt, but American label James Perse deserves to be taken more seriously than most. Since 1994 their blend of casual-style, luxury-finish tees have inspired a devoted following. This combed cotton-jersey t-shirt is as classic as white tees get.
A key item in McQueen's Spring/Summer 2019 show, this long-sleeved, slim-fitting cotton-jersey t-shirt has one hand (or rather two wrists) in formal tailoring, with distinctive blue-stripped buttoned cuffs. Wear them open for a louche touch.
Scandi styleim电竞官网- supremos Acne like to put small twists on everyday items. Made from stretchy jersey, its 'Navid' t-shirt with neckline detailing is perfect weekend wear. It's also - like all of Acne's stuff - very comfortable.
A.P.C. - purveyors of perfect jeans and, in this case, the perfect white t-shirt to go with them. The ribbed crew neckline and straight hem offers a subtly different shape, while the typographic on the chest is funny because you're anything butim电竞官网- no fun. Right? Right.
Mr. Porter's highly successful signature line has been branching out in recent collections. At its core, though, are wardrobe staples like this; a white tee made of lightweight cotton-jersey and given a silicone wash for extra softness.
im电竞官网-Last year saw the resurgence of loud and proud 'logomania'. For a slightly understated approach, it doesn't get more iconic than this classic 80s Gucci imprint, lightly distressed to add to the vintage feel.
Spending much less than this on white t-shirt can stray dangerously close to 'shrinks after one wash' territory. Luckily, Folk has an affordable option that's beautifully soft and fits like a dream.
Who says the humble white t-shirt has to be humble? Not Valentino. This one comes lined with pale, gold-tone metal studs that will breezily stroke your torso and twinkle in the moonlight every time you reach for your drink. Probably not one to wear to the gym, this.
Paris label AMI is on fire at the moment. This soft slubbed cotton t-shirt has a retro-font logo embroidered on the chest to let people know you're very much aware of the fact - just, y'know, in an ironic way.
im电竞官网-When things properly heat up (so, March then) there's no better option than Orlebar Brown's signature line. Extremely lightweight and flattering around the chest and arms (assuming you're in reasonable shape), this is as close as you'll get to 'Brando in Streetcar'.
After poaching Yuni Ahn from Celine to become its first creative director, we've been expecting big things from Parisian label Maison Kitsuné. This crew neck white t-shirt with the brand's signature fox logo is a good start.
