How to Build a T-shirt Wardrobe

Basic tees are arguably the foundation of your wardrobe. Almost all layering outfits go with a basic tee. Basic tees are also effective when worn by itself. They are that one item in your wardrobe that you need to get right. So, how do you choose the perfect tee for you?

The most important thing is fit. Make sure your t-shirt fits perfectly. A well-fitting tee should be neither too baggy nor too tight in the shoulders, collar, and waist. If it’s the correct size and proportion to your body, it should hang freely but so much that it looks sloppy. If you are going for the streetwear look, try to go for something that is 1-2 sizes bigger than what you’d usually wear. On the other hand, a slimmer cut to the torso and arms would better flatter your muscular torso and shoulders. There will always be differences based on body type, but staying within these guidelines should help.

How to Pick the Perfect Hoodie

It’s also one of the most comfortable and versatile pieces in a man’s wardrobe. But is there more to it than that? What should you be looking for when choosing a hoodie?

The first thing you should know is that there are actually three silhouettes to choose from: pullover hoodie, full-zip hoodie, and half-zip hoodie. A pullover hoodie can be slipped on over your head.
