Hunting down the best T-shirt brands is like searching for the holy grail of fashion. Such is the importance of the quest for many fashion lovers. Here at Who What Wear, we always get questions about where to find perfect tees. But first off, it's worth reminding ourselves of the requirements that make an incredible T-shirt. For starters, it should fall just right—not too clingy and not too loose (unless you're after the oversized look). Other factors include it being in a block colour (with the exception of the Breton) for maximum styling options. Our preferences are tees in black, white or grey—although, other hues are acceptable as well. (Wild, we know.)
Finally, there is one last trick that we highly recommend when on the hunt for this basic: Try shopping outside of the women's department. The men's section (or just head over to Mr Porter) can be a trove of T-shirt wonders, particularly if you're looking for a style that you might want to cinch with a belt. Here, we've rounded up the very best T-shirts you can locate—from high-street options to designer ones. Click through our gallery to shop from our favourite T-shirt brands.
Arket is right at the top of this list as it's consistently a brand that all the Who What Wear editors go back to for expensive-looking, affordable basics.
