The tank top tends to get a bad rap. And whether that stems from muscle bros or Hollywood's habitual misuse of the piece — Nicolas Cage in Con Air being one infamous example — this negative image is pretty unfair.

With a name that comes from its lineage to 1920s swimming suits, the tank top became associated with the masculine tropes of the silver screen via actors like Marlon Brando. And while its simple white form continues to hold a timeless menswear status, right now, plenty of brands are offering modern spins on this classic.

The summer staple is a warm-weather godsend that can bring a wide range of styling options to a wardrobe if worn well — whether paired up with a camp collar, tee, or going solo. We've picked out several tank tops below that can be used in such ways, and they come courtesy of COMME des GARÇONS, AMBUSH, Dries Van Noten, and more. Pieces start at under $40 for a CDG iteration.
