A t-shirt is a kind of shirt that comes with no collar, no cuffs and no buttons. It usually has short sleeves and a round neck. It was originally intended to be a piece of innerwear. However, with time and ever-transforming fashion trends, it has now become the most popular choice of outerwear for most casual occasions. Men's t-shirts can be classified into different styles based on their fit, size, shape and even material quality.


Men's t-shirts were originally designed to have short sleeves, but now they are manufactured with short sleeves, long sleeves and even without sleeves. Simple round necked t-shirts with short sleeves are light, comfortable and casual. T-shirts with long sleeves can be worn during the colder seasons. Both of these can be paired with jeans for an informal look. Sleeveless t-shirts (also known as singlets or vests) were popularised by athletes, but are now considered acceptable during the summer months. They can be paired with cotton shorts or track pants to be worn outdoors or at home.


Slim-fit men's t-shirts are designed to hug the contours of the body. Wide-fit ones, on the other hand, are loose and hang off the body casually. Slim fir t-shirts are very popular now, and suit men, who are lean and well-built. Those who are slightly heavier in build can opt for a wide-fit t-shirt and slightly baggy jeans to avoid calling attention to their bulk.

Neck Styles

The original t-shirt with its simple round neck is not the only one available anymore. There are several men's t-shirt styles that have different necklines. The most common of them is the tennis shirt (also known as the polo shirt or the golf shirt) is a t-shirt with a collar, with two or three buttons, and sometimes a pocket on the chest. Polo shirts are generally made of knitted cloth or pique cotton (as opposed to other normal t-shirts that are made of woven cloth). They were popularised by golfers and tennis players because the knitted cloth allows the skin to breathe easily even outdoors and the buttons can be loosened for greater physical comfort.

A similar shirt, known as the rugby shirt, has a polo neck but long sleeves. They have smaller collars and bear logos on the front and back.

A variant of the polo shirt is the one with a polo neck, which has a high collar that fold over the neck. It is for this reason that the polo neck is also known as the turtle neck. Turtle necks were originally used in sweaters, but are now fashionable in t-shirts too.

Jersey Shirts

A jersey T shirt is a kind of t-shirt worn by athletes from soccer or cricket teams. They are made of synthetic micro fibre to allow sweat to move away from the skin and evaporate. Most jersey t-shirts are water-resistant as well. They bear the name of the player on the back, as well as the team name, logo or sponsor's name.
