The Best Basic T-Shirts For Every Man's Closet

GearPatrol. December 2022 / Feature

Over two dozens tees that are perfectly plain (but still stylish), meaning no graphic logos, embroidered art or odd fits.

My favorite T-shirt of the past year is Merz b. Schwanen’s high-end two-needle version of their basic t-shirt. The fabric is unreal, and I don’t think most people realize how nice a T-shirt fabric can be until they handle one of these. It’s made of organic Greek cotton on a vintage loopwheeling machine in Germany. Fit is perfect, slim and it has no exterior branding. I own multiples in nearly every color they’re made in.”
