Believe it or not, the humble V-neck dates all the way back to the early 1920s. Famously worn by Edward VIII - before he was abdicated - he was often spotted on the green rocking a Fair Isle style whilst flawlessly hitting a hole-in-one. As with everything that the royals wore, men and women across Great Britain slowly but surely started to adopt the athletic aesthetic, and eventually, it became a wardrobe staple in the ‘30s, and, well, the rest is history, really.

If you’re thinking of adding this truly iconic piece to your everyday outfits, we’re here to help. Showcasing some of the best men's V-neck T-shirts from some of our absolute favourite brands, make sure you check ‘em all out!
