Pretty much every retail store we shop at features a ‘custom’ fit or ‘athletic’ fit tee shirt for us men. There’s nothing custom about my biceps and pectorals and I am certainly not athletic…so what does all this jargon really mean? Fitted. Fitted shapes are the new standard in men’s t-shirts. Whether it’s a V-neck, crewneck, or tank top, us men should be wearing more fitted t-shirts and getting rid of those baggy old ones you got from your friend who ran the Boston Marathon eight years ago. Here are my picks for the Best of the Best T-shirts that fit to a “T”.

Find the best mens t shirts for your body type. We suggest mens tee shirts from Ralph Lauren to the Gap for fitted mens shirts that are always in style and always the best price on the Web.

Best Fit-to-a-T Tees by Preston Konrad

The Best You Can Get

  • Rugby Ralph Lauren – Rugby Scrum Graphic Tee

    Preston says: Rugby by Ralph Lauren makes some of the coolest athletic inspired clothing for men. This vintage inspired tee shirt fits like a glove and was modeled after a standard phys. ed. issue shirt. The red cotton shirt features tattered rugby lettering, spelling SCRUM (don’t worry, it’s a Rugby technical term, nothing offensive). The cotton has been washed multiple times for supreme comfort. This T-shirt feels like you’ve had it for years.

    • 100% cotton
    • Signature canvas Rugby patch on the bottom hem
  • Retro Sport Duke Cotton Tee

    Preston says: Even if you didn’t go to Duke University, you can at least make people think you did by rocking this collegiate tee from Retro Sport. Available with various university logos, this tee fits closely to your body and is made of super soft washed cotton. The sleeves are cut a bit higher to show off those guns you’ve been working so hard on at the gym. Save yourself a trip to the college bookstore website and just grab one of these.

    • 100% cotton
    • Made in the USA
  • Urban Outfitters Barack n’ Roll Tee

    Preston says: Show your political pride (assuming you’re a democrat) with this Barack Obama t-shirt from urban outfitters. Barack’s photo is screen printed on the front with the words “Barack n’ Roll” below it in 1980’s rocker letters. When paired with a great slim jean, this tee is perfect for that punk look to wear to the bar, or the ballot box.

    • Slim Fit
    • Cotton
  • Gap Perfect V-neck T

    Preston says: This is one of those t-shirts that every guy should have at least five of. Seriously, five. This lightweight cotton t-shirt from Gap has been a bestseller for years and will instantly become one of your favorites. The V-neck opening is not too deep, making it perfect to wear layered under a button down shirt or by itself. The best perk… buy two or more and save. Now load up, fellas.

    • 100% cotton
    • Sized up to XXXL
  • Goliath Men’s Red Date Models Tee

    Preston says: Make a statement with this tee from Goliath. This fitted red tee claims “Sorry girls, I only date models”… which you have to agree, is pretty funny. The fit is great and makes a great pair of jeans look complete. This is perfect for a night out with your buddies but I would certainly stay away from sporting this on a first date with a prospective girlfriend.

You will be happy with any of these

  • Abercrombie and Fitch South Notch Tee

    Preston says: Abercrombie tends to cater to the younger crowd of guys with the varsity letters and low-rise jeans, but the South Notch tee is all grown up. The vintage photo on the front is very cool, and reminds us that the brand actually was created as outfitter to the outdoorsman in the late 1800s, not just a destination for keg partygoers with large biceps and spikey hair. The fit is superb and the cotton is supersoft.

    • 100% cotton
    • Imported
  • Rogues Galley Checkerboard Tee

    Preston says: Get on the plaid trend while saving yourself the sweat from a long sleeve flannel with this amazing tee from Rogues Galley. This red tee fits like a glove and has the traditional black checkerboard print on the front. Pair this with skinny black jeans and Converse sneaks for a killer look.

    • Cotton
    • Only available up to size L
  • American Apparel Poly-Cotton Short Sleeve Crew Neck

    Preston says: American Apparel is one of the leading purveyors of everything and anything made out of cotton. This poly blend crew neck t-shirt is made so well it feels like you’ve had it for years. The shoulders are reinforced to prevent it from losing its shape and the neckline, hem, and cuffs are ribbed for added comfort and support. The fit is slimmer than the 2001 version, so you may want to grab one size up.

    • 50% polyester
    • 50% cotton
    • Style: BB401
  • Wet Cement Donegal Burnout Tee

    Preston says: I’m usually not a fan of screen-printed tees with too much all over them, but this t-shirt is pretty damn cool. The screening across the front is the wording from a Gaelic sign from Ireland that is used to warn visitors of the dangerous cliffs on the road. The colors of dark grey and blue look great paired with jeans or a slim grey suit pant and a killer pair of street sneakers.

    • Made in the USA
  • Converse by John Varvatos 5th Avenue Tee

    Preston says: Having lived in New York City, I am a big fan of tasteful clothes that show my NY pride. This amazingly soft tee is made from pima cotton, which feels almost like cashmere when wearing it. The front features a washed out print that reads “5th Ave, New York” right below the V-neckline. The colors are not too bold, which make it easy to pair with everything from suit pants to a pair of cargo shorts. Trust me, once you feel how soft this t-shirt is, you won’t flinch at the price.

    • Pima cotton
    • Machine wash
