The best T-shirts for men

Gentleman's Journal. March 2024 / Feature

The very best classic T-shirts every man should have in his wardrobe.

Produced by Merz B. Schwanen and made famous by chef Carmy, this product often sells out fairly rapidly, so coveted it is within style circles. Sturdy and reliable – in that typical German way – are the words that first spring to mind, as the T-shirt has been crafted from a 245g pure-organic cotton that has a great weight to it (a featherlight touch can often equate to good quality, as mentioned before, but so can something that feels like it’s been made for durability).

This particular feature is a result of the label using 100-year-old loopwheelers to make the garment, a slow-fashion practice that minimises the tension within the product, removes the need for side seams (meaning no twists) and also creates a vintage look and touch. Because of this too-tough-to-destroy appearance, consider one in army-green, too. The packaging – slim, old-school-esque boxes – confirms the brand’s dedication to the details, as do the limited batches, and, as these T-shirts run small, we’d recommend ordering at least one size up.
