Saint James Striped Long Sleeved Tee In Marine/Tulipe
The best t-shirts for men are good looking, comfortable and easy to take care of. And no wardrobe should be without them. As fashion icons go, the men’s t-shirt is hard to beat. It’s become such a style staple that it’s strange to imagine a world without it. But the t-shirt is a relatively recent addition to daily life, with its origins thought to date back to the 19th century, when overheated US labourers started to chop up their standard issue jumpsuits in an attempt to cool down. The first t-shirts to be deliberately made as t-shirts were issued by the navy, but they weren’t considered appropriate as outerwear until the 1950s, when superstars Marlon Brando and James Dean brought t-shirt culture to the big screen.
Great men’s t-shirts are the backbone of many outfits, whether you’re rocking a simple white tee with jeans, dressing it up under a jacket, layering in the winter, or getting sweaty at the gym. Finding the perfect men’s t-shirt is a bit like looking for the best pair of blue jeans or the world’s most comfy undies — a task that takes a lot of effort and can last a lifetime. At Hardtofind, we've put together an easy-to-navigate range of men’s t-shirts from block colour basics to custom designs. Whatever you're looking for and whatever your budget, you’ll find a t-shirt to fit the occasion in these pages.
A men’s t-shirt can adapt to any event, from a political rally to office attire, and a good quality t-shirt is destined to become a favourite garment, worn over and over again. So what do you look for when you buy a men’s t-shirt? Here are some pointers to get you started.
Most men’s t-shirts are made of cotton, or a cotton blend. Cotton t-shirts for men are the best in a warm climate as they ‘breathe’ and keep you cool. But having synthetic fibres in the mix will help to prevent shrinkage, keep the colour fast and combat the wrinkles if you don’t want to spend the rest of your life ironing. Jersey is an example of a flexible, comfy t-shirt made from a blend of cotton and synthetic fabric. Bamboo is commonplace these days — it’s soft and breathable and gives a nice lustre. Merino is a high-quality, fine-weave wool used in expensive men's t-shirts. Stretch fabrics such as Lycra are great for the gym, and won’t lose their shape no matter how often you wash them.
As far as size goes, well that’s personal. Are you wanting to show off your abs or do you prefer to sport a baggier silhouette? Men’s t-shirt sizing starts at XS (about 76-79cm chest measurement) and goes up to XXXL (125-133cm) so there’s quite the variety. And then there’s colour. Would you like classic white, badass black, or something more flamboyant? These questions and more can be answered by browsing the men’s t-shirts pages at Hardtofind, until you spot the one that shouts your name. Now you can think about the design.
One of the most important feature of men’s t-shirts is their ability to sport protest messages, political opinions, humorous catchphrases and well, just about anything else you could possibly want to show or say. At Hardtofind we have a vast range of slogans t-shirts and funny t-shirts for men, so you can choose one off the rack or have one personalised with your own custom design. See more on that below.
Men’s t-shirts make a fantastic gift. Hit the right note and it’s something he will wear often, and you will cross his mind whenever he pulls it on over his head. A personalised men’s t-shirt shows how much consideration has gone into finding a gift that’s extra special to the recipient. It’s never been easier to make your gift one of a kind, by adding his name or a personal message, image or motif to the front, back or both. Tip: When searching for your men’s t-shirt, select the ‘Can be personalised’ option in Special features.
Let’s just imagine for a moment that you’re not the same body type as Chris Hemsworth. That doesn’t mean you can’t rock a t-shirt. That’s the good news. The bad news is you may have to do a bit of work before you find the perfect fit for your physique. Think honestly about your body type. If you’re on the stout side or are carrying a bit extra around the middle, a skinny fit isn’t going to be flattering. Ditto if you’re on the lean side. Find a t-shirt that fits without being tight around the chest and waist. Make sure the shoulder seams line up with the ends of your shoulders, and that the sleeves cover about a third of your biceps. T-shirts should end about 5cm below your belt. Life your arms and if it shows your tummy, it’s too short.
So now you hopefully have an idea about what kind of men’s t-shirt you’re looking for. In these pages, you’ll find all the best men’s t-shirts Australia-wide. You’ll also discover a wide range of other necessities and gifts for him including hoodies, socks, underwear and other men’s accessories.
