Where the runway meets the street

Sidestepping the fitted, thoroughly low-cut, bicep-tensing kind of tank top, the tank top is actually a pretty useful part of any guy’s wardrobe. As it gets warmer and armpits could benefit from an airing, a tank top can lend itself to all kinds of looks. Dress it up under a shirt, dress it down with… nothing. Or, when you’re really starting to get the hang of the additional skin exposure, just tie it around your head and use it as a bandana. Whatever you decide, we’ve found a plethora of options for you.
