Put your neck on the line

T-shirts are like oxygen – we all need them to live. OK, that might be overkill. But the point is that every man has a favourite T-shirt that, if polite society would only allow, he would wear every single day of his life.

They're the Swiss Army Knife of your wardrobe, and as such, should be treated with respect. With that in mind, we've compiled a handy guide to the many, many different types of tee you might find yourself drawn to.

The workhorse of the T-shirt world, this bad boy has a classic round fitted neckline.


Right: V-neck

This collar has a V shape at the front of the neckline and is stitched in the middle. The V can be shallow, regular or deep, depending on how much you want to bare.

A relaxed take on the classic crew neck, the scoop neck is also round, but hangs lower at the front and wider on the shoulders.

Still known as a Henley in America, this tee features two to five buttons and looks something like a collarless polo shirt.
