Best to Buy in Bulk: Uniqlo Supima Cotton Crew Neck Shirt

Best Overall: Slub Curved Hem Tee

Buck Mason makes a T-shirt worth being obsessed with. “Buck Mason has taken them all into account for you, from the material, to the hem and cut, in order to develop the ideal T-Shirt. The hem gives the basic T-Shirt a tailored, polished look, so it hangs in the right places, and is tighter (but not too tight) in others. The neck leaves room to breathe without being too loose. And the tri-blend is breathable, lightweight, and pretty much keeps its shape forever.”

Best Feature: Not only is this shirt pre-shrunk, it also has a tapered hem to make it extremely stylish. Plus, it’s the softest of any I’ve tried.

Runner-up: Sunwashed Pocket Tee

Faherty doesn’t make just incredibly soft shirts. They are also pre-shrunk. “This means that they don’t shrink in the wash…ever! That’s right, ever. I’m actually currently wearing their sunwashed pocket tee. I’ve had it for a year, and I’ve worn it so much that there is a hole in the top right shoulder, but other than that, it’s exactly the same as the first day I bought it. It’s lightweight, being made from 100% organic cotton, extremely comfortable, and comes in seven sunwashed colors.”

Best Feature: The fabric isn’t soft, but it’s substantial, making it one worth wearing every single day. The fit is great, and it has plenty of color options, too.

Most Fashionable: Forty Five Slub Pocket Tee

I could wear this T-shirt all day long. The shirt comes pre-shrunk, so it won’t change size even though it is made out of 100% cotton. . I need to add all of them to my wardrobe ASAP.

Best Feature: This shirt is extremely soft and breezy, making it perfect for summer. The stitching is on point, so much so, it may even turn some heads.

Best for Staying Warm: EcoKnit Thermal Pocket Tee

This is one of my favorite T-shirts. It combines a waffle knit style with a classic shirt for something a little bit different than your run-of-the-mill tee. It’s made out of a cotton and polyester blend so it doesn’t shrink too much in the wash, and they say it’s thermal, but it’s great for warm days and cool ones, too.

Best Feature: If you tend to get chilly, this t-shirt is a great base layer to throw on. Plus, the fabric is unique and interesting to the touch.

Best for Exercise: Ready Set Shortsleeve T-Shirt

Outdoor Voices men’s line is filled with tons of athleisure basics but their shirts are on another level. “The Ready Set Shortsleeve T-shirt is softer than soft, and yet, I can wear it all day without feeling like an amorphous blob. That’s because if you look closely, the details in the stitching are there.”

Best Feature: Throw this shirt on for a quick trip to the gym or just for hanging out. It’s extremely lightweight, soft, and perfect for any activity life throws your way.

Most Sustainable: TrinoXO Tee

Okay, this is weird but this shirt is made out of discarded crab shells. “I can’t tell you how, what, or why — I truly don’t know —but what I can say is that it might just be your new favorite T-Shirt. It’s extremely soft, well fitting, and as with all of Allbirds gear, sustainably made.”

Best Feature: If you care about the environment, this shirt, as I just said, is made out of discarded crab shells. It also makes the shirt a great talking point, too.

Best to Buy in Bulk: Uniqlo Supima Cotton Crew Neck Shirt

Scouted Contributor Anna Gragert wrote that the Uniqlo Tee is the best one for women. I’m here to say, it’s also one of the best one for men. It has a ribbed neckline, seams that disappear into the shirt, and comes in a wide array of color selections.

Best Feature: Beyond being an excellent tee, this one has a very low price, making it a great one to buy when you need a t-shirt refresh. This is the one I consistently buy when I need a new t-shirt.
