The humble T-shirt, which began 150 years ago as an undergarment for work, has become many things to many people. It is now a luxurious companion to tailoring. A platform to express one’s opinion. A walking advertisement for brand recognition. It’s still a basic undergarment.

Although t-shirts are not the most complicated garments for men to make, they remain an essential part of the modern man’s wardrobe. These luxury brands are producing some of our favorite styles right now, whether you like loud graphics, logo-heavy styles or quality over embellishments.


Sunspel’s quality tees have been a well-known brand since Thomas Hill, a Nottingham, England, founded it in 1860. It is believed to be one of the few manufacturers that first manufactured T-shirts. These t-shirts were used as undergarments in those days.

Sunspel has not lost sight of its heritage, but it continues to produce designs using the best fabrics and production techniques. A flattering silhouette made from the highest quality cotton and built to last can be assured.

James Perse

James Perse was born and raised in Los Angeles. His brand of luxury minimalism is a revelation ever since he launched his first T-shirt line in 1994. The American brand has grown from strength to strength. Perse’s diverse range of tees, including his ‘Elevated Lotus Jersey,’ which he sourced from Japan, has earned him a reputation for quality.

Perse’s tees have a relaxed cut that is typical of a West Coast label. They are ideal high-end staples.


Zanone is part the Italian collective Slowear. This group includes brands that share the same ethos of high quality craftsmanship and textile innovation. Zanone is a manswear brand that has quietly slipped under the radar. Its attention to detail and meticulous approach to manufacturing have allowed it to make a splash in the collections of menswear enthusiasts.

The ice cotton tees are among the most comfortable that you will ever wear.


Jean Touitou founded A.P.C in 1987. It has since established a unique niche and embodies Parisian chic throughout all its collections. A.P.C is somewhere in the middle of luxury label and cult brand. They go about their business with aplomb. The subtle logo tees are a must-have for every man’s wardrobe.


In 2016, the Swedish label CDLP emerged on the menswear scene with a brand new standard for men’s underwear. CDLP’s aesthetic is minimalist and focuses on comfort. This is thanks to innovative fabric blends.

The brand uses high-quality fabrics like pima cotton, lyocell and wood pulp from certified renewable sources. This natural fibre provides silk-like softness, superior breathability, and silk-like softness. This is a new standard.


Gucci is known for its high-end fashion and innovative fabrication. Alessandro Michele, Creative Director, has given the Italian giant a new brand of vibrant maximalism which has allowed the luxury label to boom in recent years. There’s no room for wallflowers when it comes to tees. Logo largesse is the order of the day. Wear it proudly.

Saint Laurent

Anthony Vaccarello, a Belgian designer, took over Saint Laurent’s helm from Hedi Slimane. It’s a big job, but he is able to fill them. He has reaffirmed Saint Laurent’s Parisian heritage and created collections that exude silky silhouettes, moody masculinity, and he did it all.

Expect slim-fit styles in tees with subtle logo treatments and a rock ‘n roll attitude.
