History Of Men's T-shirts 

T-shirts are a classic, versatile item of clothing that can be worn with almost any outfit and can be styled to achieve any kind of look. That’s the beauty of owning a few cool t-shirts; if you pick a selection of the right staples to go with different outfits, then you can create effortlessly badass look for all occasions.

Today, men’s t-shirts come in all kinds of unique designs; from graphic tees to hooded t-shirts, long sleeved or short sleeved varieties. But while an eye-catching, cool t-shirt can often act as a statement piece that’s the main focus of a guy’s outfit – they didn’t start out with the intention of being eye-catching. In fact, it might surprise you to find out that t-shirts actually had a rather humble beginning. They were originally intended as undershirts and got their name from the ‘t-shape’ formed by their body and sleeves.

While t-shirts were originally just plain undershirts designed to form a barrier between a man’s skin and his outer clothing, they now form a huge part of men’s fashion. But due to the fact that t-shirts were never intended to be seen (remember, t-shirts were technically an undergarment), they are still regarded as an indisputably ‘casual’ item of clothing. No matter how much you dress it up, cool t-shirts just don’t cut it as formal attire.

And let’s face it – no matter how cool your t-shirt is, and no matter how original and distinctive the design, you’d probably still never wear it to a job interview, or a formal dinner. Some things will never change, but the humble t-shirt is, at least, an awesome and diverse item that can be styled to achieve a variety of different looks.

For example; if you opt for a v-neck tee shirt, then you can wear it slightly bigger than you would a regular tee. This style of tee shirt can be worn to make a more formal outfit seem casual, by pairing it with a suit jacket for example.

Or, if you prefer a crew or round neck shirt then opting for something with a dope, stylish monochrome print can make a casual daytime outfit transition effortlessly to a trendy evening look. If you’d rather go for bright colored tees with bold designs, then it’s best to leave them for daytime wear.

If you’re more of a scoop neck tee shirt guy, then these can be great for casual daytime looks due to their unstructured appearance – perfect for pairing with a loose-fitting open shirt and a pair of casual shoes.

And let’s not forget long-sleeved t-shirts. These are great for creating a layered look with an open shirt. The key to pulling it off is to choose colors and patterns that will complement each other, rather than clash. Opt for a plain or simple print long-sleeve tee shirt in a similar color to your shirt, and keep both of them untucked to create a casual look.

Versatile, timeless and classic T-Shirts are a staple in men’s fashion whether they are 16 or 60. Relaxing and comfortable, T-shirts can be combined with any dapper menswear starting from a suave leather jacket to a pair of biker jeans and cowboy boots. In a market overstuffed with mainstream t-shirts that all look the same, it is a tad bit difficult to find and buy cool t-shirts for men that have unique designs and prints. Either they are too overpriced or the design and cuts are not radical enough for fashion enthusiasts looking for quality alternative clothing.

All t-shirts on RebelsMarket come in standard sizes, including plus size fits.

How to Style Men’s T Shirts

There are two main ways you can go about choosing a cool men’s t-shirt for yourself- you can choose either by design or by cut.

Choosing Men’s T Shirts by Cut

 

Half Sleeve T-Shirts

Nothing beats the summer heat quite as effectively as a half sleeve cotton or linen t-shirt. Half sleeve tees are the original t-shirts, the t in t-shirts originating from the similarity of the form of half sleeve t-shirts and the letter ‘T’. Originally intended as an undergarment since the first half of the 19th century, the half-sleeve t-shirt got mainstream appeal when Marlon Brando stylishly sported it in the 1951 hit film A Streetcar Named Desire. The first printed t-shirt made its first public appearance way before Brando’s movie when a handsome US Air Corps recruit sporting one appeared on the cover of Life magazine. But it wasn’t until the 60s that half sleeve t-shirts became accepted as general wear for men instead of underwear. Half sleeve t-shirts go with almost anything starting from shorts, jeans, slacks to PJ’s as long as you are mindful of your neckline. Crew-neck and V-neck are the most common variants with the Henley variation also not trailing too far behind in the popularity competition. Tie-dye, sublimation printing, stenciling, stamping, and bleaching are the most common forms of prints and designs when it comes to half-sleeve printed and graphic t-shirts.

A crew-neck half-sleeved t-shirt paired with classic navy-blue narrow fit jeans is considered the quintessential style for any man. Simple and easy, this cool men’s wear combination goes with all body types and shapes, making it a great starter choice.

Considered a rock n roll staple, ringer t-shirts are simple affairs in which the ribbings of the t-shirt has a different color than that of the t-shirt fabric. Ringer t-shirts are no longer bland affairs like in the past and come with cool and unique graphics and prints that can be paired with a nifty pair of jeans and shorts.

V-neck short sleeve tees look great with a pair of slacks with or without any graphics or logos on them

Full Sleeve T-Shirts

While not as popular as they were in the 90s and early 2000s in certain parts of the globe, full sleeve t-shirts still remain a staple winter wear and a more exclusive fashion statement than half sleeve-shirts in many cases thanks to the separate design aesthetics. Aside from the usual crew neck and v-neck variations, full sleeve T-shirts also come in turtleneck, hoodie, and button-up designs. The longer sleeves mean a tighter fit around the chest which looks really good with a fitting pair of jeans. As with cool half sleeve t-shirts, common design and print variations include Tie-dye, sublimation printing, stenciling, stamping, and bleaching.

A dark full sleeve t-shirt with a cool design can be the perfect partner in crime for both semi-fitting and narrow jeans paired with a stylish cap or neckwear. For a refreshing blast from the past, you can try layering a long sleeve t-shirt by wearing a cool short sleeve t-shirt over it. When trying this particular style, its best to avoid jackets or any other top garment since it’s easy to overheat and start sweating unless it's really cold outside.      

Long line T-shirts

A popular half sleeve t-shirt design popularized in the late 90s, long line t-shirts is historically associated with the hip-hop culture. Long line t-shirts are characterized by long length and low hemline. As a result, an elongated silhouette is created that usually ends at knee level. Long line t-shirts often have multiple layers, making them a hot favorite among today’s youth. Long-line tees usually incorporate graffiti work designs for the skater look or slogans and cool graphics to incorporate a hip-hop style. This cut of t-shirts is very versatile and goes smoothly with both skinny and baggy bottom wear. RebelsMarket has an extensive collection of uniquely designed long line t-shirts that are radically different than major brand offerings.

Screen Printed T-Shirts

Printed t-shirts were mainly limited to military and industrial use from the turn of the 19th century to the mid-1950s. Development of high capacity screen printing machines during this time led to the commercialization of screen printed t-shirts, earning its place in the fashion scene as one of the ultimate forms of personal expression. Miami can be considered the birthplace of the modern printed t-shirts that we know and love today. Tropix Togs was the first printed t-shirt company operating out of Miami, soon to be followed by a lot of other Florida based printed t-shirt companies. Printed t-shirts can have all type of cool prints starting from satirical and funny slogans (funny printed t-shirts, which has created a whole sub-category for itself) to cool pop-culture illustrations and graphics like superheroes, skulls, graffiti work and more.

Printed t-shirts are very casual men’s wear item, so unlike solid colored or ringer t-shirts, they usually don’t pair well with blazers. But pairing them with dark-colored leather jackets and stonewashed denim jeans is a whole different story, enhancing the color combinations and contrasts.

If you are a rocker or a metal head, a dope dark black tee with a band logo /motif paired with simple narrow or straight jeans can be the perfect look for you. Using skull rings and bracelets and accessories perfectly nails the look.

Geometric designs and digital camo prints blend in excellently with both shorts and slacks. If you’re looking to dress a bit casually without compromising a display of sophisticated taste, these designs can go a long way in displaying your personal fashion statement without losing the cool factor.

Tie-Dyed T-Shirts

Tie-dyed method of dying has been historically used in ancient India, Africa, Jamaica, and Japan long before they were used in the coolest modern fashion essential for men. Tie-dyed t-shirts became popular in the west in the 1960s when the hippie culture was at its peak. Typically tie-dyed t-shirts are colorful affairs that often incorporate a kaleidoscopic effect. These kinds of t-shirts are a really good choice for party occasions whether worn on its own or paired with a jacket or vest.

Heat transfer vinyl

The progenitor of metal t-shirts, dye-sublimation printing adds a very unique effect on a t-shirts graphics or text by adding a rubbery feel to it that makes the design look like it has been carved on the t-shirt instead of being printed on it. Instead of the graphics or text being printed on the t-shirt, it is manufactured as a vinyl which is then heat pressed on the t-shirt itself. RebelsMarket has a large collection of vinyl t-shirts with both metal and casual design.

Try pairing a black vinyl t-shirt with a leather jacket and biker jeans and you can create the perfect rocker/metalhead fashion statement.

Dye-sublimation printing

The most popular and cheapest t-shirt designing method, the only drawback of dye-sublimation printing is that it needs to be done on synthetic materials like polyester and polymer which can be quite uncomfortable in hot weather. On the flip-side, dye-sublimation printed t-shirts also has the widest variety of designs that are often not possible with other types of t-shirt graphic design options.
