Yes, large-sized men’s T-shirts for men are back. Don’t worry, we’re not going to tell you to dress like Soulja Boy circa 2007. Thankfully, the oversized tees we’re talking about are not of the quintuple-XL, Elizabethan-gown-length variety that all ringtone rappers were required by law to wear in their music videos. The Dickies, Vans all of which are back, were inspired by the ’90s skateboarders. They’re boxy, baggy, and strangely flattering. They’re made from crisp, heavy cotton that’s not sloppy.
We were surprised to find comme des garçons play T-shirts that are bigger and more sexy than usual. So we set out to search for the best across all fashion categories. These are 17 incredibly comfortable and surprisingly stylish oversized T-shirts for men that you should be buying right now.
The Best Vivid Oversized T-Shirt
It’s a great fit, just slightly larger than normal, which is a great way to get into the trend. The material, which is soft organic cotton, is also on point. Without it, it wouldn’t be on a Best Stuff List. This Entireworld slapper’s biggest selling point is the color palette. It comes in a dozen different fetching colors and lots of breezy stripes. Get ready for summer!
The Best Heavy-Duty T-Shirt
This is the shirt for you if you prefer a bit more weight to loose-fit tees. This t-shirt is made from thick, 6.2 ounce cotton so it will not show through on a sunny day.
The Best Next Level Oversized T-Shirt
It would be easy to label John Elliott “that slouchy basics guy” but if that were the L.A. designer, we’d tell you to just buy some Anti-Social Social Club tees and call it quits. Elliott’s attention to detail is what makes his sweatpants, hoodies, and tees so beloved by everyone from Whoopi to LeBron. It is precise in its proportions: A little more length but not enough to feel like a sleepshirt; a longer neckline that doesn’t fall into unfavorable scoop-neck territory. Add the soft-as hell recycled (!) Add the soft-as-hell recycled (!) and you have a great slouchy tee that is well worth the investment.
The Best OG T-Shirt
Carhartt, the workwear legends, was ahead of the curve on this whole oversized shirt movement. Their K87 model is a heavyweight and boxy option that has been a favorite among both power-tool-wielding professionals and well-informed skateboarders for years. The label hasn’t decided to price gouge the silhouette, so you can still get one for $17 per piece.
The Best Oversized, Affordable T-Shirt
Three things this shirt has that none of the others we’ve mentioned a handy phone-sized chest pocket; a tennis-shirt-inspired split hem; and a pricepoint lower than what you spent on lunch at Sweetgreen yesterday.
The Best Big & Cropped Tee
This tee, which is oversized and relaxed, was brought to you by a pioneer in the new workwear movement. The post malonemerch shirt is also cut to the perfect length to avoid looking like Shaq. You can pair it with a pair of thrashed jeans or high-waisted chinos and vintage Jordans.
COS Hemp t-shirt in relaxed fit
This oversized tee will suit those who are interested in optimal temperature regulation in hot climates. Its 100% hemp construction makes it more breathable and breezy than a refrigerator but lighter.
MoojiMooji oversize crop t-shirt
Vintage vibes that are fresh-off-the rack without the actual mileage
Everyone.World recycled cotton boxier tee
The cropped cut is boxier, shorter and greener than most tees. It can be worn with high-rise pants or showing off some midriff.
