T-shirts are a men’s fashion staple for everyone from CEOs of billion-dollar companies to A-list celebrities. Though often considered a basic item worn by the masses, the right tee can make or break an outfit and completely change a look.
Rivet compiled a list of men’s T-shirts that are far from basic. From stripes to tie dye and fitted to boxy, these patterns and fits can transform a simple T-shirt into a statement piece.
