Mens Fashion: How To Choose T-shirts

The credit crunch has meant that many of us have had to pull in the purse strings of late, and one area that seems to suffer from our lack of money is our fashion. The economy has meant that clothing has taken a back seat, particularly for men. The consequences of this is that we actually have to take greater care when choosing our clothes, as a fashion faux pas cannot be rectified until the following pay day. With less money, we must consider our fashion choices much more carefully. Here, we will consider mens t-shirts, as these tend to form the focal part of any outfit and can make or break our overall look.

With reference to t-shirts, size is very important, an ill-fitting shirt will look awful, but a well-fitted shirt should have you turning heads wherever you go.

One of the problems we have regarding sizing with mens t-shirts is that many men emulate their fathers, and in previous generations, men were less concerned with fashion, but more so with comfort, they tended to wear baggy because it felt comfy. Avoid this trap.

A t-shirt fits well when if it skims the body gently, there should be a gap of between 3mm and 7mm between the skin and material, and no more and no less.

It is vitally important that a little extra money be paid to ensure that the t-shirt is of a high quality, this way, shrinkage does not occur, which would clearly damage the fit, and always follow the washing instructions on the label.

There are many popular mens t-shirt designs, but in order to be truly fashionable, you should own at least one retro style t-shirt. These t-shirts are fantastically versatile, suiting many styles of clothing although you should only wear such t-shirts in a casual setting.

Try to select a retro design that reflects your personality, for instance, if you love rock music, then the Rolling Stone motive style tees would be perfect.

Colour tends to be a big problem for men, particularly concerning fashion. In part, this is because a large proportion of men far more than women are actually colour-blind. If you are such a person, then seek the help of others to help you decide upon colour, as colours that appear harmonious to you, may appear to clash to people who can see the whole colour spectrum.

In terms of colours that match, the neutral colours tend to go with everything. Neutral colours are white, grey, black, brown, and cream.

Colour combintations to avoid at all costs are; yellow with purple; red with green; and anything fluorescent.

T-shirts should form the basis of your wardrobe, and you should work the rest of your outfit around the t-shirt, this is why it is fundamentally important to choose wisely, but if in doubt, seek the help of those around you, either a girlfriend, friend, or a shop assistant.
