A Guide to Wearing T’s (like the new Georg Roth T-shirts!)Admin
In all our excitement this week about the new Georg Roth T-shirts, we uncovered “The Best Damn Guide to Mens’ T-shirts on the Internet” over at the most excellent The Art of Manliness. We think their claim is bold, but right on. Wish we’d written the article ourselves.
Here’s a summary of their advice, but the article is worth the whole read.
Pair solid-colored white or gray tees with dark denim or khakis. An incredibly classic look that’s hard to do wrong. Crewnecks look especially smart with khakis.
Pair navy/blue tees with khakis. Lighter pants with a darker shirt generally looks better than blue-on-blue.
If the dominating color of a graphic tee is dark, pair with a lighter bottom. And vice versa.
Layer with care. While some modern dudes have adopted the sport jacket/blazer + t-shirt look, many style experts aren’t big fans of it. The relative formality of the jacket jars with the casualness of the tee. If you’re going to put a tee under a sport coat, the jacket needs to be an especially casual one — think texture, soft draping, and natural fabric. Even then, it’s going to be a better look if you swap the tee for a casual button-down.
On the other hand, a t-shirt tee can look fantastic underneath a leather jacket or a blouson … or even a cardigan sweater.
Don’t tuck your tees in. It’s almost always going to come off as nerdy.
