Cheap Vs. Expensive Men’s T-Shirt Brands


Are you looking for a new men’s t-shirt to add to your wardrobe?

Look no further than my list of the top 50 available on the market today.

From high-end designer brands to more affordable options, there’s sure to be something for everyone on this list.

So whether you’re in the market for new workwear or want some new casual tees, read on for some great recommendations.

Bella & Canvas – $4.80 to $7.50

t-shirt brand

Bella & Canvas offers a wide range of colors and fits many guys well. It’s a cheap option, but for guys who go through a lot of t-shirts and change up their style regularly, this is the best brand for you.

Decathlon – $10

t-shirt brand

Decathlon offer a rang of fits and textures – including a tight muscle fit that’s great for athletic guys. If you’re the sort of guy who works hard in the gym and wants to show that off, then check out Decathlon’s t-shirt range.

Jack & Jones – $15

t-shirt brand

Jack & Jones is a well-known brand that produces quality at a reasonable price. Their t-shirts fall in line with this reputation – offering high quality material and fit at a price within the reach of most men.

Next Level (Amazon) – $15

Amazon-brand clothing isn’t something most men would consider when shopping for new t-shirts. However, most men would be wrong! Next Level clothing is actually pretty impressive – their t-shirts are inexpensive but look great and fit like a glove.

Uniqlo – $20

t-shirt brand

Uniqlo is a quality brand – reflected in even their most basic t-shirts. For guys looking for some variety in quality, Uniqlo is perfect. They offer several different ranges of t-shirt at different price points – so there’s something for every budget.

Be warned – some of their clothing is very ‘fashion forward’ with boxy fits and baggy designs. Do not blind buy – try on before you make any purchase to ensure what you’re buying suits your own personal style.

GAP – $20

t-shirt brand

Who hasn’t heard of GAP? It’s a safe bet for most guys as you know what you’re getting is high quality.

Their t-shirt do run a bit baggy/relaxed on occasion so it’s important to try before you buy. Even if you know you’re regular sizing, I’d still advise hitting the changing room and testing out different sizes at GAP to ensure that you get the one that best fits you and your body shape.

Fruit Of The Loom – $20

t-shirt brand

Fruit Of The Loom t-shirts do the job. They’re not amazing, and they won’t turn heads, but they will prove to be reliable and good value for money. At this price, they’re a great option if you need to buy a quick t-shirt in an emergency.

H&M – $20

t-shirt brand

Unfortunately, H&M have seen some pushback in recent years with regards to their quality.

Some men believe that, when compared to the likes of UNIQLO or GAP, H&M t-shirts just don’t make the cut.

My advice? Hang out and see if you can get an H&M t-shirt on sale. Test the product and see whether it’s to your standard. If those other guys are proven wrong, then H&M can be a great option for guys looking for simple and minimalist designs.

J. Crew – $20 to $40

t-shirt brand

Another classic brand, J.Crew t-shirts live up to its name as one of America’s most popular men’s clothing brands.

When you buy J. Crew, you know that you’re getting a reasonable amount of quality for a reasonably low price. That being said, many guys have reported their fits getting more boxy and baggy in recent years… so try before you buy!

Rothco – $25

t-shirt brand

Many guys believe that Rothco t-shirts are military styled. I can see what they mean – frankly, I love the different designs available and believe that Rothco produces some of the best t-shirts available at this price point.

Madewell – $30

t-shirt brand

Madewell t-shirts are okay, but given that the brand name literally highlights that they’re MADE WELL … I was shocked to hear that many men have had poor experiences with the strength of their Madewell t-shirts.

Some report that their t-shirts tear and develop holes within only a few months of wear.

Salty Crew – $30

t-shirt brand

Salty Crew t-shirts are in a league of their own when it comes to design.

With a strong nautical theme running throughout most of their garments, these t-shirts are for the man who romanticizes the idea of fishing, boating and the old navy way of life.

Bronson Manufacturing Company – $30

t-shirt brand

Bronson Manufacturing Co. has a great selection of regular T-shirts, Henleys and patterned garments. When it comes to variety and quality, this company has it nailed.

Everlane – $30

t-shirt brand

Everlane t-shirts come in quite boxy fits, so they’re not for everyone.

Once again, I’d recommend trying before you buy to ensure that the fit and design is in line with your own personal style and tastes. Some guys say that the quality it great, while others say it isn’t worth the money.

My advice? Try one on for yourself and make a personal judgement of your own.

Reiss Shirts – $30 to $50

t-shirt brand

Reiss t-shirts can be described using one word: fantastic.

They’re high quality, look expensive and come in a range of colors and designs. In general, Reiss opts for a slimmer fit, so be mindful of your body shape and purchase accordingly.

Jockey’s – $35

t-shirt brand

Some men describe Jockey’s t-shirts as even higher quality than the likes of Calvin Klein. That’s a bold statement, but for significantly less cost I’d say it’s at least worth checking them out and trying on a few in the changing room.

G-Star – $35

t-shirt brand

G-Star is an interesting brand. Some guys swear by them and wear entire outfits made by their brand… others think they’re overpriced trash that shouldn’t hit the back of any well-dressed man.

In my opinion, G-Star is a brand that can produce some great garments. But you need to be careful. Avoid buying online and instead find a store where you can hold the garment you’re about to purchase. Make the final judgement according to your own expectations.

Mott & Bow – $40

Mott & Bow t-shirts are great.

They’re classic, well designed and last ages (provided you care for them correctly).

However, for some men, their length might be a slight issue. If you’re got a bit of a dad-bod or beer gut, then they may run a bit short in the body and risk revealing the lower part of your torso. Not a good look – so try before you buy.

Hanes – $10 to $40

Hanes are classic and clean. If you’re looking for loud Hawaiin designs or funny printed slogans then this is not the brand for you.

Fit is pretty good, some might have an issue with the slightly wider sleeve, but that’s personal preference. Once again, I’d avoid buying online if you’ve never seen their clothing in person before – it’s important to try these t-shirts on and ensure they fit your style and body shape.

David Gandy WellWear T-shirt – $55

David Gandy is one of the most influential male models out there. He’s well known for his classic, English style and taste in quality, timeless clothing.

His WellWear t-shirt range has a slight stretch to the material and comes in slightly slim fit as a result. Sleeves are shorter than average but this isn’t necessarily a bad thing – it just depends on what you’re looking for in a t-shirt. Definitely worth a try at this price point.

Express Shirts – $40

Plenty of guys have told me about the quality of Express Shirts.

For the most part, they say that Express Shirts make some seriously impressive polos and t-shirts that are high quality and great value for money. It’s another brand that has been compared with H&M and come out on top.

Tailored Athlete – $40

As the name would suggest, this brand suits men who are athletic.

They’re made to be broad across the shoulder and chest and fit snug on the mid-section. So, if you’re the sort of guy with a big of a gut, it might be worth giving this one a miss.

P&Co – $40

P&Co clothes are of a decent standard. This is kind of a given considering the price … as we move up into the $40+ mark, there really is no excuse for poor quality materials!

The main complaint I’ve heard about P&Co t-shirts is the customer service. Delivery is often slow, which isn’t the best look for a higher-priced brand.

In short, P&Co t-shirts are nice, but they’re nothing special.

Banana Republic – $40

Banana Republic are great for go-to basic t-shirts. They’re a well known brand that you can rely on to provide decent clothing at a decent price.

As far as fit in concerned, BR t-shirts run slightly slim in the waist, so make sure you try before you buy… especially if you’re slightly rounder in the gut area!

American Giant – $40

When it comes to substantial, hard-wearing t-shirts – American Giant is a contender. Their premium range is sturdy, but for thinner cotton, you should opt for their classic range.

American Giant also offers a few different fabrics in their t-shirts, so make sure to get a feel for these different options before making a final purchase.

Mack Weldon – $45

For a quality, mid-range t-shirt, try the Mack Weldon Pima. They’re pretty durable, look great and are more durable than Everlane t-shirts of a similar style.

Cuts Clothing – $50

With Cuts, we’re heading up into a new cost tier of t-shirts. Their fabric is great – described as ‘buttery’ by a pal of mine – and feels great on the body.

However, be aware that the fit of Cuts’ t-shirts fit quite long in the body for some men. Before purchasing, take your measurements and make sure that you won’t get buyer’s remorse!

Calvin Klein – $50

CK is a very well know brand. Let’s be honest, every guy recognizes the CK logo from their cologne, shirts and underwear. But how do their t-shirts stack up?

As expected, their t-shirts have a premium feel and look great. As they should do, considering the price and brand status! If David Beckham has endorsed a brand, I wouldn’t expect anything less than A1 quality.

Asket – $50

The best part of Asket t-shirts is the fit. They’re snug in the right places, and loose in the right place – making a t-shirt that fits perfectly and feels great!

Unlike many brands, Asket also has a top-quality customer service team. If you’ve got an issue with your purchase or a question surrounding a product, chances are you’ll get the answer from the quickly and effectively.

Hugo Boss – $50

Another premium-named brand, Hugo Boss is well known for it’s luxury menswear.

You don’t get to be that well-known without producing some pretty awesome products. Fit and design are personal preferences, so head to a Hugo Boss boutique and check out the selections they have in store. You’ll soon find out whether the higher price tag is worth it to you and your budget.

Dressmann – $50

Dressmann is a good option for cheaper t-shirts. Better quality than H&M, but not as youthful and ‘fashionable’.

As you know, we don’t believe in fashion here at RMRS. Timeless style is king, and Dressmann shirts provide exactly that at a great price too.

Vuori – $54

On the high end of the spectrum, Vuori is a great option for quality men’s t-shirts.

With a focus on performance and functionality, Vuori’s tees are perfect for active guys who want something that will wick away sweat and keep them cool during workouts.

They’re also super soft and comfortable,

Tommy Hilfiger – $55

If you’re looking for designer quality without the designer price tag, then Hilfiger is a great option.

Their shirts are well-made and come in a variety of styles, from classic crew necks to trendy henleys.

And with a wide range of sizes available, it’s easy to find the perfect fit.

Lululemon – $58

Best known for their athleisure wear, Lululemon also makes great men’s t-shirts.

Their tees are designed with functionality in mind, and are perfect for guys who want a shirt that will keep them cool and dry during workouts.

They’re also super soft and comfortable, making them ideal for everyday

Goodlife – $60

If you’re looking for a more affordable option, Goodlife is a great choice.

For many men, Goodlife is the go-to option for basic t-shirts that are well-made and come in a variety of colors.

Todd Snyder – $60

On the high end of the spectrum, Todd Syder is a great option for quality men’s t-shirts.

With a focus on luxury and style, Todd Syder’s tees are perfect for guys who want something that looks great both inside and outside the gym.

They’re also super soft and comfortable, making them

Reigning Champ – $65

Another great option for quality men’s t-shirts is Reigning Champ.

Made in Canada from the highest quality materials, Reigning Champ’s tees are built to last.

And with a wide range of sizes and styles available, it’s easy to find the perfect shirt for your body type.

Polo Ralph Lauren – $70

If you’re looking for a classic men’s t-shirt, then Ralph Lauren is a great choice.

Their Polo Slim Fit Crew Neck T-Shirt is a wardrobe staple that will never go out of style.

It’s made from 100% cotton and comes in a huge variety of colors – from bright pink to deep green, there’s something for every man’s tastes.

Standard Issue – $75

On the more affordable end of the spectrum, Standard Issue is a great option for men’s t-shirts.

Their shirts are well-made and come in a variety of colors and styles.

And with a wide range of sizes available, it’s easy to find the perfect fit.

Pangaia – $80

Another great option for guys who like classic and minimalist t-shirts, Pangaia is a reasonably priced option that’ll last you ages without breaking the bank.

Pangaia is interesting, in many of their garments, they use food waste as dyes and seaweed fibers – making them sustainable and earth-friendly while also being a bit odd.

Maison Kitsune – $80 to $100

Maison Kitsune have some great designs when it comes to their t-shirts. The quality is better than high-street stores, however it isn’t anything amazing.

In my opinion, the quality of these t-shirts is compatible with J. Crew. The pricing is slightly different and isn’t for everyone, so check them out and decide for yourself.

Left Field – $80

I’d recommend Left Field to any man looking for top-quality t-shirts that are built to last.

For one, they’re made in the US which is something I always look for when buying garments of any type.

However, it is worth noting that their sizing can be slightly off at times. As with many of these brands, check them out for yourself and test the sizing if possible.

CDLP – $85

CDLP t-shirts are designed with a relaxed cut and precion tailoring.

They’re made of a lyocell – a natural fibre crafted from wood pulp derived from sustainable sources. This material provides a superior breathability and silk-like softness to the garment that makes them feel one-of-a-kind.

Unbound Merino – $85

Unbound Merino T-shirts are very stylish and have a certain luxuriousness that can only be found in such minimal.

You guessed it, they’re made of 100% merino wool, making them far superior to the cheaper, lesser made cotton t-shirts on this list. They can be worn for a hike, to a date or under a blazer for work – they’re incredibly versatile and look great.

Percival – $89

Percival are a bit hit-and-miss.

Some of their designs are far too immature for me. No man should wear a t-shirt with an eggplant on the front.

However, their more minimal and timeless designs are actually pretty great! They seem to be a t-shirt company of two halves … so make sure you pick a garment from the correct side.

Sunspel – $90

Sunspel pricing is pretty steep for what they make.

Sure, there are far more expensive t-shirts on the market, however these usually have some defining feature that justifies the higher price tag. In my opinion, Sunspel is a bit overpriced for what is a relatively regular and normal t-shirt.

Lacoste – $100

Lacoste is well known for its preppy aesthetic and upper-middle-class style.

The lacoste polo is incredibly well known for this style – but what about the t-shirt?

To be honest, they’re pretty good! The lacoste logo brings with it assumptions of quality and style, so finding a t-shirt that uses this logo is a good way to show you know your quality clothing brands.

Tom Ford – $290

Anyone that’s read any of my content will know who Tom Ford is.

But do his t-shirts stack up to the quality of his fragrances and suits?

Reports have varied. Some men that I’ve spoken to claim to have found them too thin – to the point where their nipples would be easily visible through the fabric!

Others, however, love Tom Ford t-shirts. Obviously the quality is there, it’s just whether you like the style or not.

My advice is to go ahead and find a TF boutique where you can pick up a t-shirt and examine it for yourself.

Prada – $1400

Prada is expensive. Let’s not kid ourselves here.

You can expect to pay well over $700 for a single t-shirt, and I question if that’s ever an acceptable amount of pay for a t-shirt.

Sure, the branding is well-known and makes you look loaded … but unless they’re lacing their cotton with diamond filament, I’d steer clear of Prada. It’s just a huge amount of money!
