Every great wardrobe is built upon humble foundations. The white T-shirt is the most basic and the most effective weapon in the modern gent’s styling arsenal. Some of history’s most sartorially gifted men have made their mark with the plain white T-shirt – we’re looking at you, Mr. Dean. So, seeing as the men’s white T-shirt goes with absolutely everything, we thought we’d just point you in the right direction. At OPUMO, you’ll find oversized white T-shirts, slim-fit white T-shirts, long-sleeved T-shirts and everything in between, so where do you start? Start by reading our ultimate guide to men's T-shirts.

A Day’s March Heavy T-Shirt

Weighing in at 250g, A Day’s March’s Heavy T-Shirt lives up to its name. Crafted from durable 100% cotton, this white tee is ideal for every occasion. Made with a round neck and cut to a regular fit, A Day’s March has made sure that this pared-back design is completely versatile. Every detail added to a T-shirt makes it less suited to a given style. A pocket T-shirt looks a little off when worn under a shirt, for example.

Håndværk White HW L/S Pocket White T-Shirt

Håndværk is the undisputed king of staples. The label’s collection comprises luxurious basics of all kinds. This long-sleeve white T-shirt is cut from a heavyweight jersey fabric knitted with two independent 30/1 yarns in parallel. Premium combed Peruvian cotton ensures that this pocket T-shirt is more than twice the weight of a traditional T-shirt. The weight and impeccable craftsmanship of this tee (and the rest of the Håndværk collection) is destined to last decades. Plain white T-shirts aren’t going out of fashion any time soon, either.

Uniforms For The Dedicated Trunk T-Shirt

Uniforms For The Dedicated was formed in 2008 as a collective of snowboarders and creative minds. The group creates clothing that revolves around our relationship with the environment. A strong stance on sustainability is at the core of every collection. This men’s white T-shirt is made using heavy interlock jersey made of 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton. The relaxed fit works together with the off-white hue to result in a white T-shirt that does things just slightly different, meaning that there’s always space for it in your wardrobe.

YMC Ecru Wild Ones Pocket T-Shirt

YMC’s Ecru Wild Ones Pocket T-shirt is cut from slub jersey which lends the piece texture as well as being lightweight and soft. The slub patina makes this T-shirt the perfect off-duty staple, but isn’t as suited to more formal occasions. YMC’s commitment to using premium materials and craftsmanship means that this white pocket T-shirt will maintain its slightly slim fit for years to come. Make sure you read up on our YMC size guide.

Schnayderman’s Jersey White T-Shirt

Schnayderman’s has long been on a quest to create the perfect men’s shirt. Along the treacherous, winding road of this journey, the label has branched into other facets of menswear, maintaining the determination to make each piece perfect. Schnayderman’s White Jersey T-Shirt is garment dyed and will therefore keep its colour for much longer than most. The 375g cotton hangs immaculately and will take some hard use before showing creases. Read our Schnayderman's size guide.
