Highsnobiety

We’ve sung the praises of the graphic T-shirt many times, but for those looking to make a statement with a little more refinement, the graphic shirt is the real MVP. Where a bold T-shirt is instant gratification — you can throw it on, creased, and it’ll do the job – the graphic shirt is slow-release. Sure, you’ll have to iron it, and it’ll take more effort to style, but when graphic shirts work, they're an unbeatable force.

Much like the movement we’re seeing in the world of sneakers, streetwear has turned its gaze to more mature styles in recent seasons. Of course, the luxury-streetwear dynamic is not to be overlooked in this evolution, either. The merging of the two worlds has set the stage for a new sense of freedom in casual style and we’re here for it. It means that we’re styling beautifully crafted graphic shirts with everything right now, from track pants and sports shorts to tailored pants and everything in between.

Whatever you’re matching your shirt with, just know that it’s probably going to play a secondary role because each one of these bold graphic shirts is a bonafide main character. From Marni to Casablanca, our roundup — courtesy of Harvey Nichols — proves that the graphic shirt is a beautiful mid-ground in men’s style, and it’s at your disposal.

Printed Shirt

$585

AMBUSH

Buy at Harvey Nichols

Abstract print shirts are often the way to go. While photography prints and illustrations definitely turn heads, an abstract print leaves a lot of room for styling natural palettes.

Rick Owens

Printed Shirt

$795

Rick Owens

Orson T-Shirt

$200

Soulland
