If there is one thing that belongs in every guy's closet it's a good t-shirt, but which tee do you buy? We've assembled a guide of our favorite tees for every occasion from our must-haves for the active guy to the t-shirt and jeans guy who just wants a drawer full of great fitting tees that don't break the bank.
The Active Tee
Outlier's Ultrafine Merino Tee ($98) is the Humvee of t-shirts. It's made from 17.5 micron merino that is an ideal fabric for workouts due to its unique structure that not only wicks away sweat, but is also durable, UV resistant, odor-resistant, and is breathable even when wet.
The Affordable Everyday Tee
Uniqlo has got the market cornered on basic tees, their Supima Cotton Crew ($12) is as soft as it gets and every season they update the lineup with an array of vibrant colors. Supima is also incredible soft, long lasting, and Uniqlo cuts these shirts in a flattering, slimmer fit.

The Luxury Tee
This is the upgrade. The perfect fitting tee that's incredibly soft and can be worn under a blazer with ease or as the ultimate basic with your favorite pair of Japanese denim and your Common Projects sneakers. Mack Weldon's Pima Crew ($32) ticks all those boxes with Peruvian Pima Cotton that's ultra soft and cut perfectly for a clean and sophisticated look.
The White Tee
When it comes to white tees, everyone's got their favorite, but if you haven't tried a 3Sixteen Heavyweight Plain T-Shirt ($85 for a two pack) then you're definitely missing out. The shirts are made with a 9oz heavyweight fabric that's knit just for them and have a triple stitch collar that stays tight and intact even after many wears.
