Best Men's V-Neck T-Shirts

15 Best V-Neck T-Shirts For Men

Posted in GEAR GUIDES, SHIRTS By

A T-shirt’s just a T-shirt, right? In the wrong hands, sure. But when done right, a V-neck T-shirt can become a secret style weapon, an essential style upgrade that can take your off-duty menswear game from good to great.

It’s more visually interesting than a plain crewneck tee, and when done up with textured fabric, a slim fit and high-quality materials, the best men’s V-neck T-shirts are more than worth adding to your menswear arsenal this spring and summer. And the right V-neck tee can go just about anywhere — slide it on underneath a lightweight navy linen blazer for breezy casual Friday style, and then rock it to the bar or a concert with a tough leather moto jacket and slim selvedge denim. The great thing is, when priced right, you can pick up a whole set of v-neck shirts to get you through the warmer months — and well beyond.

United By Blue Standard V-Neck

United By Blue Standard V-Neck

Although United By Blue calls its V-neck tee “Standard,” it’s clear that at a glance, it’s anything but that. Made using an overdye process that results in great texture and plenty of wearability, it’s as clean and classic of a V-neck tee as it gets. Seriously, pair it with everything from slim chinos to light wash denim this spring. And in keeping with the company’s focus on giving back, it helps that the brand cleans up oceans and waterways with every purchase — there’s no better way to look stylish and give back than that. – Buy It

J.Crew Broken-In V-Neck T-Shirt

J.Crew Broken-In V-Neck T-Shirt

If there’s a brand that pioneered the idea of taking casual basics and elevating them to staple items, it just might be J. Crew. And the brand’s perfectly washed Broken-in V-neck is a prime example of a tee that looks cool and feels great to wear. Available in a plethora of spring-friendly colors, it’s a tee you’re going to want to break out every weekend — try the Gatlin Green color with white denim and suede chukka boots for casual, essential off-duty style. – Buy It

Mack Weldon Pima V-Neck

Mack Weldon Pima V-Neck

The brand that makes your favorite underwear and merino tees also makes a heck of a V-neck tee — that much is true. And once you try one out, you might never go back to the tees you used to wear. Mack Weldon starts with excellent fabric (in this case, enzyme-washed pima cotton) and they consider every detail — down to the ladder-stitch sideseams. This is the perfect tee to wear out for casual weekend drinks, ideally alongside your favorite denim jacket. And while it’s slightly pricey for a T-shirt, there’s no question it’s worth it. – Buy It

James Perse Short Sleeve V-Neck T-Shirt

James Perse Short Sleeve V-Neck T-Shirt

For those who like their V-neck tees to have more of a high-fashion vibe — and a higher price point — there’s James Perse and the brand’s simple, effective and crisp Short-Sleeve V-Neck T-Shirt. Available via Nordstrom, it’s made from combed cotton jersey fabric and should prove lightweight and comfortable for spring and summer afternoons galore. Wear it to the beach in place of a tank top and try it with your favorite rolled chinos and classic white canvas sneakers. – Buy It

Under Armour Threadborne Siro V-Neck

Under Armour Threadborne Siro V-Neck

Not every V-neck tee need be thought of as a fashion accessory — in fact, some are all the better for being more technical and functional. The Threadborne Siro V-neck from Under Armour checks those boxes nicely, featuring a fuller cut and the brand’s Threadborne Siro fabric for comfort and breathability. It’s the upgrade that your workout gear needs, as soon as possible. It’ll wick moisture speedily and perform no matter how hot it gets during your workout — suit up and get your sweat on in the months to come. – Buy It

John Varvatos Star USA V-Neck T-Shirt

John Varvatos Star USA V-Neck T-Shirt

Is there any combo more rock-ready than a cool, clean V-neck tee and a slick leather jacket? Particularly when the V-neck tee is from a rock-inspired and rock star-approved brand like John Varvatos? It’d certainly be tough to top that combo for a Saturday night out. The Star V-Neck T-Shirt could be the coolest T-shirt you own, what with a soft cotton blend woven into a carefree silhouette with a slim fit. Wear it with black denim and broken-in leather boots to your next show — and the one after that. – Buy It

Onia Joey Slim Fit Jersey T-Shirt

Onia Joey Slim Fit Jersey T-Shirt

Onia calls its Joey Slim Fit Jersey T-Shirt the “epitome of laidback luxury,” and when checking out the specs and top-notch styling details, it’d be tough to disagree. It starts with the nicer-than-average fabric — high thread count Supima cotton, specifically. The Storm Blue color is crisp, clean and classic, made to be worn with everything from dark denim to khaki chinos and retro-style runner sneakers. And since it’s made with a hint of stretch, it can reliably move with you all through spring nights at the beach or the bar. – Buy It

Tommy John V-Neck Tee

Tommy John V-Neck Tee

Tommy John is another brand that, like Mack Weldon, knows quite a lot about stylish, effective and well-made men’s basics. When they put that knowledge together and translate it into something as simple as a V-neck tee, the results are to be applauded — and purchased quickly. The Memory fabric is, in particular, made to stay wrinkle-free and keep its shape. Featuring a premium blend of Pima cotton and spandex, it’s just the tee to pair up with your favorite pair of broken-in denim as you head to a summer music festival. – Buy It

Hurley Staple V-Neck T-Shirt

Hurley Staple V-Neck T-Shirt

With performance and effective style in mind, the Hurley Staple V-Neck T-Shirt could become just that — a true staple in your warm-weather wardrobe. Clocking in at under $20, it’s a very affordably priced alternative to a plain crewneck tee. The heathered cotton and stretchy polyester blend should make for a comfortable tee no matter the occasion, and it’s tough to argue with the fact that every guy looks good in a black V-neck. It’s the tee to wear on a hike outside town, and provided it’s still in good shape, you can wear it right out to dinner after. – Buy It

Abercrombie & Fitch Garment Dye V-Neck Tee

Abercrombie & Fitch Garment Dye V-Neck Tee

If there’s a brand that’s come back in a bigger way over the past year or so than Abercrombie and Fitch, they certainly don’t stack up quite as well. The brand continues to get a lot of things right in terms of even more basic pieces for guys. The Garment-Dye V-Neck Tee is a great example, made with lightweight cotton treated for a perfectly lived-in feel and a slim fit. Roll up the sleeves a bit, roll up your chinos and try out the navy option with suede chukka boots for a Sunday stroll through the park. – Buy It

Scotch & Soda V-Neck Tee

Scotch & Soda V-Neck Tee

Scotch & Soda reliably blends European style with easygoing wearability for guys on this side of the pond — in the case of simple, subtly stylish pieces like its V-Neck Tee, that’s good news. If you’ve tried the brand’s rugged denim, you know the fit and styling details are on point, and such is also true with this T-shirt. Made with a more relaxed fit and designed to be worn with casual pieces like light wash denim and olive cargo pants, it doesn’t get any better than a Scotch & Soda tee (in addition to our other picks, of course). – Buy It

Polo Ralph Lauren V-Neck Tee

Polo Ralph Lauren V-Neck Tee

Look no further than Polo Ralph Lauren in terms of upgrading your most basic pieces with essential touches and clean, classic American style. The brand’s V-neck tee is a premium offering finished off with the brand’s instantly recognizable logo and available in an array of bright, seasonally appropriate colors. It’s the type of tee you’re going to want to wear layered up with a lightweight cardigan on breezy spring and summer nights, and given that it’s available in an agreeable Standard Fit, it should be wearable for just about everyone. – Buy It

Lacoste PIMA Cotton Jersey V-Neck T-Shirt

Lacoste PIMA Cotton Jersey V-Neck T-Shirt

Lacoste is yet another classic prep brand with sporty roots that does a fine interpretation of the simple, essential V-neck tee. Made with what the brand calls supersoft pima cotton jersey fabric, it’s a reliable move to wear with a suede bomber jacket or a tough leather jacket and your favorite pair of trusty dark blue denim. Pick up the navy option for an agreeable price and wear it with olive or khaki chinos and classic Converse sneakers — the combo is as good as it gets for the warm weather ahead. – Buy It

Psycho Bunny Classic V-Neck T-Shirt

Psycho Bunny Classic V-Neck T-Shirt

With a name like Psycho Bunny, it’s clear that the company doesn’t do things the ordinary way. In the case of its Classic V-Neck, that’s a good thing — emblazoned with its eye-catching bunny-and-crossbones logo, you should style this tee however you see fit. In a neutral heather grey color, it’d be a nice move to wear with faded denim or khaki shorts — or as your post-beach tee for weekend excursions. Just be sure to show off that logo as much as you can — that’s the way it should be. – Buy It

Georgia Regular Fit V-Neck T-Shirt

Georgia Regular Fit V-Neck T-Shirt

It’s rare that a T-shirt could be described as sleek, but that’s the case with the Georgia Regular Fit V-Neck T-Shirt, made with ultra-smooth cotton jersey fabric. Available in a range of clean, warm weather-ready colors, it could certainly be worth picking up one or two — or three. After all, you’ll surely want to wear them with plenty of other spring style essentials — like a light wash denim jacket, navy chinos and white leather sneakers, for starters. It’s also rare to get such a quality tee for an agreeable price, and that’s what you’re getting here. – Buy It
