T-shirts are a quintessential wardrobe staple for any man. Tees are likely the most stocked item in your wardrobe, taking you anywhere from the gym to the bar to work to a date night. Given the versatility (or versaitli-tee), there’s always room for more basic T-shirts in any guy’s collection. The hunt for the perfect T-shirt seemingly never ends.
That said, there are T-shirt styles for every moment in life, like luxe tees that go with suits, slubby tees that go with jeans, and (subtle) graphic tees that go everywhere in between. There are soft T-shirts for sleeping, moisture-wicking T-shirts for running, and solid undershirts for just hanging at home in your favorite sweatpants.
Of course, with all of that variety, that means there are a lot of T-shirts to choose from. After all, every single top clothing brand for men stocks at least a handful of tees. Picking out the best of the best can be damn near impossible and extremely overwhelming, especially if you hate browsing countless websites filled with almost too many options. Just trying to find the best T-shirts for men on Amazon is enough to make anyone rage.
So, let’s narrow it down. The top brands below make some of the best T-shirts on the market, giving you options for any price and any occasion. Check out these 34 top T-shirts for men, including options from brands like Buck Mason, Everlane, Calvin Klein, and yes, even Amazon.
