Highsnobiety / Eva Al Desnudo

Though there’s no denying the place of a white T-shirt in any man’s wardrobe this summer, the perfect black tee is a staple that will integrate into and elevate your ’fits like no other. Whether it’s worn as the base layer to make other pieces pop or left to shine on its own, the right black T-shirt is not only easy to style, but will add a dash of effortless cool to your outfits.

Still, not all T-shirts were made equal, and here we’ve filtered through this most saturated T-shirt offering to help you find steezy, quality black tees to make your new favorite. Browsing through luxury retailers such as SSENSE and Farfetch as well as high-street destinations such as COS, our best finds come from the likes of Patagonia and Carhartt WIP, as well as COMME des GARÇONS and Ambush.

With options starting at just $34, highlights from our selection of black T-shirts include a simple logo-printed Patagonia tee for off-duty ’fits, a classic Carhartt WIP version elevated with an embroidered logo on the front, as well as much more fashion-forward incarnations such as a Prada option that doubles as a chest bag.
