Men’s shirts are often forgotten when choosing clothing for the office, the golf course, or on a day out on the town. These shirts are typically bought by men and are worn for work-related reasons. They do not get much attention in general, so you might not want to wear a shirt with your company logo printed on it. On the other hand, certain styles of shirts can be worn at just about any event or occasion and can add to a man’s wardrobe.
For instance, the standard t-shirt has a front side that is cut in a straight vertical seam. Most shirts have a front vertical opening that runs from just above the neckline to the hem of the shirt. The vertical opening can be styled any way you choose, but for most men, it is a good idea to go with the unbuttoned look, which gives you the chance to show off your shirt without removing it.
Long sleeve t-shirts tend to run a little bit longer than a standard shirt. They can be worn either long or short sleeves depending on the weather and what kind of activities you will be doing. You can find these types of t-shirts in a variety of colors, styles, and patterns. Some people prefer to keep their long sleeve t-shirts hidden underneath a button-up shirt, while others like the opportunity to show off their ink a little better. Many people opt for long t-shirts in dark colors such as black, dark blue, charcoal grey, or dark green when working in a dull environment because white or light grey shirts can make you look washed out, and dark colors can make you feel chilly.
The two other types of men’s shirts are tube top tees and crew neck tees. Tube tops are similar to the long-sleeved shirts, but the opening is shorter and goes from the neckline to the shirt’s waist. The crew neck is similar to the tube top, but the neck goes longer and tapers down toward the chin. These two types of men’s shirts are most often paired with athletic shoes and athletic pants. The athletic shoes and pants provide the necessary cushioning and extra warmth that will help keep your body heat in during cooler months, while the shirts keep you warm and insulated during the summer months.
One more type of men’s shirt is called the dress shirt and is often confused with the t-shirt. A dress shirt is a regular shirt that has been tailored to have a slightly fitted collar and a button or two up the front so you can wear it with a formal shirt or a casual one. Many professional men’s dress shirts are made with a slimmer fit neck to allow for the comfort of the shirt over a dress shirt. Dress shirts were traditionally made in a wide variety of colors and styles. Still, today they come in a large selection of colors and styles ranging from solid to plaid to pleated to printed prints to cotton or polyester blends. Other dress shirts are unisex as well and are used for the outdoors or formal business attire.
Of course, there are other types of men’s dress shirts to choose from, including tank tops, long sleeves and short sleeves. A tank top is a long-sleeved shirt that typically features a V-neckline and is worn down to just above the waist. Long sleeve shirts tend to be long-sleeved and offer a V-neck. Men who want to look professional would probably go with a short sleeve shirt as these tend to be less formal and feature a shorter sleeve up to about the wrist. And lastly, short sleeve shirts are typically short-sleeved and feature a tapered hem.
