The Best Long-Sleeve Tees for Men Are the Waviest Shirts You Can Buy Right Now
There are practical reasons to invest in the best long-sleeve tees for men: they’re both the ideal layer to pull on during those winter mornings when it’s too chilly for short sleeves but too warm (praise central heating) for a jacket. But mostly, the reason you’re seeing them everywhere right now is that they look really friggin’ cool. They always feel a little counterintuitive and unexpected, whether you’re tucking them into your jeans or playing off the contrast in lengths by pairing ‘em with tweedy trousers. Plus, long sleeves mean designers have a whole bunch of extra real estate for the artisanal, off-kilter graphics we’re really feeling at the moment.
You can find one in pretty much any silhouette imaginable, but the ones we prefer are crewnecks cut slightly boxy and with a generally relaxed fit, all the better to sync up with your biggest pants and chunkiest loafers. A six pack of Hanes V-necks these ain’t. (For now, at least, the V-neck remains T-shirt non grata). But if you’re looking for a screaming graphic tee with plenty of main character energy, or an ultra-beefy pocket tee that’ll add just enough dimension to your everyday fits, these 19 first-rate long sleeve tees for men are the ticket. Don’t let peak layering season go to waste.
