Summer T-shirt Guide

By Josh Woodfin, 18 May 2015

Some people say dogs are a man's best friend, but actually, it’s T-shirts. Whether you're looking for an ice-cold classic crew neck or something with a bit more newness, like a longline or cropped tee, we've got you covered.

Muscle


Muscle

A body-sculpting tee cut second-skin tight to the body and sleeves. Buy in your regular size and wear simply with slim-fit jeans or a with a sleeveless shirt to add a rock 'n' roll edge (without distracting from the gun show).

Oversized/boxy

An oversized fit and boxy length makes for an ultra-casual cut that works best in your usual size. Acid-wash jeans and layering with a long-sleeved T-shirt will amp up the cool, casj factor.

Skater


Skater

A casual, relaxed fit across the body and sleeves with a slightly longer length in the body. Play up the tee's sidewalk-surfing credentials and team with worn-in denim and Vans. Or smarten up – formal tapered trousers work well with the skater’s proportions.

Cropped


Cropped

A relaxed body fit with a shorter body length. Buy in your usual size and layer with longer T-shirts for street swag or wear alone for a smarter, retro-influenced feel. Match with tailored trousers and simple Derby shoes or classic trainers.

Longline


Longline

A relaxed fit with a longer body length. More directional than the Skater fit: buy in your standard size and highlight new proportions with block-colour layers and cool, casual joggers.

Super longline


Super longline

This is longline to the extreme, with a relaxed fit and an extra-long body length that you should buy in your regular size. Made for layering, stagger it underneath a slightly shorter T-shirt or plaid shirt for a street/grunge clash.
