“I feel like I spend hours a week searching for the perfect long sleeve T shirt,” writes a commenter named Patricia. “Not graphic, not super trendy, with not-too-thin material, and not too tight, but still cool and chic.” And aren’t we all looking for just that? What follows are my candidates for best long-sleeve tees, starting with this slightly spendy one from ATM, which is just ever-so-slightly cropped.
This is from Outdoor Voices and I’m sure some of you will balk at the fact that it is 100% synthetic, but it is soft as all get-out and really breathes too.
This is from Splendid, a brand whose tees I’ve had really good luck with, and it’s got such a nice deep V.
A pretty classic tee with nice proportions.
I do love a boatneck tee, and this one comes in a number of good colors and is pretty cheap.
This is a dolman-sleeve tee, and I like that it’s on the slouchier side.
And here’s another tee that’s nicely oversized, but not too boxy.
This is a pretty thick tee—almost sweatshirt-thick—and I like the high neckline, which is unusual for me.
This one is from Kule, who make the best striped tees.
I like that this navy tee has a slight shirttail hem.
I’m a big fan of J. Crew’s Vintage cotton tees—they’re super-soft and so comfy.
And finally: this bubble sleeve is just a fun touch.
