Coming to the collar, pick one that works as per your body and face. The crew collar is the classiest option while polo t-shirt is perfect for everyone.

Generally, all t-shirt are cotton based yet the blend of polyester can also be seen. You should go for cotton ones in summer and synthetic ones for rainy season or semi-winters. The good thing about synthetic fabric is it won’t wrinkle easily and the bad thing is it is not breathable. So it will keep you little snug, that is ideal for pre-winters.

As per the pattern, t-shirts can be divided into two categories
Classic & Graphic
Classic t-shirts come in solid natural colors like white, navy, gray, black etc. White looks the most flattering on men and suits every body type. It is undoubtedly the classiest pick to pair with denim. Navy looks sharp, black makes you stand apart from the crowd while gray looks subtle.
Graphic t-shirts are the casual t-shirts and flaunt prints and graphics, mostly on the front. They should be best worn while heading to gyms, running errands or simply in a laid back mood for a casual drive or outing. Avoid huge logos, metallic prints, and loud ones.
