The hunt for the perfect white t-shirt is long and arduous at times, but not in vain. There are plenty of great ones out there. You just have to know where to look.
When I’m searching for this very important wardrobe staple I take several things into consideration. One is shape, slim and long is good, boxy is bad. The second thing is the trim around the neck; it can’t be too thick or thin. Last, the cotton should be light weight enough to breath but not so thin that people can see everything underneath the shirt. Just like a woman, a little mystery is a good thing.
Both the Gap and H&M have really reasonably priced white t-shirts for men. American Apparel’s fine jersey t-shirt is a favorite of mine and they also have a slew of other styles. If you are looking to buy a high-end version try James Perse or LNA.
Regardless of your budget, the right white t-shirt is out there and will take you anywhere you want to go.
