How To Find The Perfect T-Shirt
When it comes to style, t-shirts are man's best friend. There has never been a more universal and timeless wardrobe staple—rivaled only by it's counterpart, blue jeans. They are comfortable, flattering, versatile and washable and we'd be hard-pressed to find a guy without one in his closet rotation. Plus, you can buy t-shirts almost anywhere. Easy, right? Wrong. T-shirts may be a dime a dozen (figuratively, this is 2017) but the best ones – the ones that you will wear until they have holes and frays in all the right places – are surprisingly hard to find. Only after years of t-shirt wearing do we begin to understand the subtle but critical differences that work for each of our unique needs. For now though, there are a few key categories that you should zone in on. Your inner James Dean will thank us.
