Can A T-Shirt Be Stylish? | 7 Tips To Dress Up Men’s Tee Shirts

The t-shirt, a classic part of a man’s core
wardrobe. In today’s video, I’m going to talk about
how you can wear a t-shirt with style. Tip number one. Nail the fit. Now, with a lot of other pieces of clothing
you can get it adjusted to fit you properly; jackets, dress shirts, but with t-shirts you
got to find the brand that fits you properly. So, when you put on a t-shirt, these are the
key points you want to look at. Look at the shoulder points. Right in here you want to make sure that it
aligns exactly with your shoulders. If it goes down too low or if it’s too tight,
you’re going to want to find another brand. Then, look in the chest area and just understand
that a medium in one brand is not going to fit the same as a medium in another. You want to find a company that’s using a
model, who has a similar build to you. Then, look in the torso. If you’ve got a great body that you’ve taken
care of, you want to make sure that it has the right type of taper. If you have a little bit of weight in the
midsection, you want to have something has a looser fit. Then, the length of a t-shirt, you could possibly
get that adjusted, but it is something I will try to find a brand that has a length, so
when you raise your hands up it actually still covers your midsection. Unless you’re going to wear it untucked, then
you can go a little bit shorter. Now, the length of the sleeves, you want to
pay attention find what’s right for you. If you have a more muscular build, you can
go with something shorter. If you have a very thin build, you want to
make sure it doesn’t flare out and that perhaps it’s bit longer. Tip number two. Pay attention to the style. Look for a V. Now, you can wear a crew neck t-shirts and
those are classic, they’re good to go, but I think so many men could look better with
a V-neck. Now, I’m not talking about a scoop neck, you
don’t want something going down here and showing a whole bunch of cleavage. What you want is a classic V that’s just going
to give a nice line here. It’s going to help build up the chest, give
a very masculine look. All right. Bonus tip for dressing up with t-shirt is
to have a nice watch. Why? Because think about it, guys, when you’ve
got this entire area of your arm right here that you can, yes, bring in jewelry and that’s
what watches are, they’re a modern piece of jewelry. Guys, Original Grain. I’ve talked about them before. Over a year I’ve had this company as a sponsor
of mine. I’m proud to have them as a paid sponsor because
this is a great conversation piece. Original Grain, check these guys out. They take wood, they take steel and they bring
it together in a beautiful watch. And look at their collections. If you haven’t seen the chrono, definitely
check out that, one of my favorites. Look at the classic. Look at the barrel. Look at the minimalist collection. And, gentlemen, this is their new presentation
by the way. Have you seen these boxes? It’s beautiful. This would make a great gift. They’ve got automatic, they’ve got quartz,
they’ve got tons of options. So, again, I’ve got some extras, let me know
which ones you like down in the comments and guys I will link to them down in the description
and, yeah, go check them out. Great company. Tip number three. Go dark. So, why not go light and the white t-shirt
is classic, so is the light gray. But, both of those remind us of undershirts,
instead look to go perhaps a black, go with charcoal gray, go with navy. You can even expand out to maroons. You can look at a dark olive green. You can go with a true blue. And, what we have is something that’s going
to give you a more monochromatic look because I’m going to transition now into point number
four. Wear them with a dark-colored pair of jeans. The great thing with a dark-colored pair of
jeans the dark-colored shirt that I just talked about is it gives you a monochromatic look. All of sudden we’re able to look at you up
and down makes you more lean. It actually so if you got a little bit of
weight in the midsection, you’re a bit of a shorter guy, then this is going to make
you look taller. It’s going to make you look more trim and
it’s just a great overall look. You can even tuck in the shirt and it’s going
to look fine. Tip number five. Go with the right fabric. So, there’s a lot of fabric options out there. If you’re going to go with cotton, understand
that you’ve going to have wrinkles. You’re going to want to go with a heavier
weight cotton. You can also look at merino wool. So, merino wool is great because it’s not
going to have as much many wrinkles, but it’s also something that you’ve got to understand
it’s going to be oftentimes be more expensive, it’s going to be odor resistant, but it’s
a great option as well. Now, synthetic materials, synthetic fabrics
in general oftentimes are perceived as being lower quality, but synthetic materials can
be great for resistance of in a sense wrinkles. But the issue with synthetics if they’re too
they can look really too sporty and it may not be the type of look you’re going for. Tip number six for upgrading a t-shirt is
to bring in a vest. Now, I’ve talked about vest on and off here
at Real Men Real Style. Some guys have mixed feelings, it’s not something
they’re used to. But, understand that if you have a good build,
if you’ve got larger arms, if you’ve got a build good upper body, you’re going to be
very active. I’ve seen photographers, I’ve seen dancers
bring in vest to their wardrobe with a t-shirt. This is going to be a great look especially
if you’re going to be active, you’re going to be moving around. And, guys, but pay attention to the cut of
the vest. The overall look, it’s going to cover up most
of the t-shirt so, you know, t-shirt is not going to be seen, so we’re going to see the
vest. You want something that’s been maybe adjusted
to fit you, but that right there can really level up the t-shirt. To wrap this up, gentlemen, I want to say
try throwing on a jacket. Now, the key here is to go with a jacket color
that’s similar to the shirt. If you go with that a little bit more of a
monochromatic look, something that’s similar is going to look better than a high contrast. So, don’t try wearing a white shirt with a
black jacket, instead maybe a blue shirt with a blue jacket. That look right there along with a, you know,
the whole monochromatic feel with the darker colored jeans or darker colored trousers is
going to give you I think a pretty darn good look. All right, gentlemen, so that’s it. Let me know what you think in the comments
quick video, I think that you can have a lot of fun dressing up with t-shirt. It’s not going to be for everyone. Somewhere that they’re going to watch this
video and say sacrilege, not something I would ever recommend. However, I think in certain industries, you
can really pull it off and I would love to hear from you guys. Have you ever rocked this look? And, check out Original Grain, a great sponsor. I’ve been proud to have them and like I said
I’ve got a lot of extra samples I want to send some of them your way, so let me know
which one was your favorite of the collections down in the description. Be specific, that way I can send it your way. Take care, guys. I’ll see you in the next video.

  • Definitely the Rosewood/Chrome in both Classic and Minimalist are the best Original Grain Watches since they are versatile enough to be worn with anything from t-shirts to a suit 🙂

  • Those ebony | matte black are beautiful, both classic and minimalist.. NIce video by the way, i'm going with this dark jeans and a v neck almost all the time, now you just made me a bit more confident wearing it, thank you sir!

  • Absolutely adore the Ebony/Gold from the minimalist collection. It's very eye catching, for something so minimalist it has such unique detailing.

  • Hi Antonio,I enjoyed the video on wearing t-shirts and how to wear them.I looked at the site original grain.  I really liked the Altherra Chrono in Cognacand Minimalist Ebony/Matte Black.Have a great day,

  • I'm going to buy chronograph but one watch is not enough variety for a different occasions. Probably simplistic one would be a second choice Antonio. BTW thank you for changing my way of thinking about men's style.

  • That sounds great! But do you really think that a blazer ( the one with shoulder pad) will perfectly goes with a polo or a t-shirt this way? Somehow, it's a llitle awark to me. Looking for your answer 🙂

  • Antonio, long time fan. Cant thank you enough for the content you produce, its helped me exponentially. I absolutely love the minimalist collection from Original Grain. Thank you for the video!

  • Great new game to play before watching the videos and then pick a number in which you believe Antonio will toss his product placement in. 🙂

  • Antonio thank you so much!!! Appreciate your effort to make those videos for us! You have phenomenal contents. Keep up the awesome work!

    BIG support from Israel !!!

  • Once again, great video Antonio! My favorite has to be the Alterra Chronograph in Rosewood/Silver. It has the perfect mix of wood and metal for a clean but refined look.

  • a T-shirt with a jacket looks horrible. to me it seems like you were just to lazy to think about your outfit and just threw on something random

  • Thanks for this video. I really love wearing t-shirts with jackets; it's a more comfortable fit for me, being a larger built guy. I will also try the V-neck with the jacket….thanks again….

  • I would like to ask, is it better to wear the t-shirt in or out the pant, especially with a jacket? I do have extra midsection weight….

  • Antinio, thank you so much for your work on Real Men Real Style.
    I would very much appreciate the Barrel or Classic Series. A dark watch for me would fit with my darker T-shirts.
    From the first video i saw of yours, i subscribed. As many would agree im sure, you have helped guys in their everyday style like no one else has! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!

  • I loved the collection… the one I loved the most is The Barrel Matte black. I really liked the wooden work and I would like to own it. Pls give me if you have a free sample 😉

  • such an awesome video, I am guilty of wearing tshirt all the time when I don't need to dress up.
    I love the Classic in Rosewood/Matte Black and The Barrel in Sapele/Matte Black, they look great!

  • Your videos are great! You definitely turn me from a student only wearing t–shirt and hoodies with the school's name on them to a real, grown up man! The Original Grain does look good, and I really love the minimalist collection. That piece of the wood ring is so sick! I am also a photographer so I would also like you to check out my website.

  • I love the ebony/matte black, the minimalist. Loving the dark wood color. Seems to go well with anything, while also not standing out too much. I have always had a taste for darker colors as they're mysterious.

  • This year I decided to become the man I've wanted to for so long and looking good is something that'll help me get a job and maybe even a girlfriend. I'll be searching for a brand for Tee shirts and button ups as well as vests. I've taken a look at the watches and the Alterra Chrono Redline as well as the Alterra Chrono Cognac are beautiful, I'd love one but it'd take awhile for me to save up for it. I have small wrists so I've never thought I could pull of a watch but I'm confident to try, maybe it'll look better than I've though previously.
    Thanks for your time and I'll be watching your videos until I reach the man I want to be.

  • The classic rosewood matte black is an incredibly beautiful watch . I am an Orientation and Mobility instructor and have watched many of your videos for tips in regards to casual clothing. I spend a great deal of time outside in the field, but still enjoy having a good sense of style while working. Thank you for all of the advice and tips.

  • Love your videos. Always great advice and I really look forward to them. Your sponsor "Original Grain" watches are really top notch. The Mahogany/Silver is awesome. So is the Rosewood/Matte Black, Whiskey, and Capitol. With my two faves being Redline and Rosewood/Chrome. Keep up the great vids.

  • hi Antonio! I liked the classic rosewood/chrome and I wonder if you have one of those left. Btw, good videos. They help me improve my outfit.

  • As a newly educated teacher, finishing up my first year of teaching, I'm still trying to find my style. I want something comfortable (because I move around a lot) but still somewhat uniform, and I've been toying with the idea of the jacket-T-shirt combo for the colder periods, and vest-T-shirt for warmer seasons, both with jeans and chinos (darker chinos).

    I'm pretty squarely build, so I'm not sure if it'll be a good look.

    I guess what I'm saying is: I'll keep studying your videos and try out new things, your channel's been really helpful over the last few weeks of me discovering it.

  • dives into the store

    Well. The Classic Ebony/Matte Black watch seems to be a pretty great all-around watch. Rosewood/Chrome is just downright gorgeous, but COULD be limited in matching it with clothes. Would go well with dark clothes to make it pop, I think.

  • I really like the classic maple matte black or the minimalist ebony matte black. Hope you can send me one! Love this video it's exactly what I was wondering about this week, thanks!

  • Hi, Mr. Antonio. I'm a young professional, recently got off college and started working. So I'm gradually trying to upgrade my style towards a more mature look (I'm 27 now). Your videos really helps me out. By the way, I love all of the original grains' minimalist collection. I'm half Asian, half white so I thing I look great with both lighter shades and darker shades.

    Thumbs up from Norway:)

  • Love all the watches. Personally, the Classic Rosewood / Black Classic is the most versatile and would be the one I would purchase.

  • Guys, I can say these videos improved my knowledge regarding style, a lot.

    Also, this watch is splendid: THE MINIMALIST CHROME / ROSEWOOD / WOOD DIAL

    Have a look guys ->

    Kind regards, Antonio.

  • my biggest problem with t's are too deep of a 'v'. still looking for the right brand. I do really like the Original Grain Minimalist in Rosewood/Chrome. I'd love to have that one if you have one!

  • Antonio! Thank you for showing Original Grain! The Alterra Chronograph The Marc and the Alterra Chronograph Redline look beautiful and like you said, definitely a conversation starter!

  • Hey Antonio. I follow this tube channel. I love the advice you give on dress up for men.
    your knowledge is helping me to build up my confidence and my style of dressing myself up at the same time expanding wardrobe to have variation clothing style myself differently. I love the Original Grain watches my favorite IS THE CLASSIC ROSEWOOD/ CHROME. Antonio I like your content on this channel and Valuetainment where i first found about you. looking forward to your content and meeting you in person.

  • You can't go wrong with any of the styles from original grain. My favorite has to be the Chrono.
    Great video as always. Keep them coming

  • Hey, nice watch recommendation once again, I'm a gonna check it out. Bought Vincero but had shipping problems just last month though.

  • Great video as always Antonio. What is your opinion on tucked or un-tucked when pairing a t-shirt with a jacket?

  • Antonio,
    I really enjoy watching your videos. As a construction worker, it can be hard to think of myself as stylish, even after work. I've learned a lot of good tips via your videos, and find myself dressing and looking better, because of them. Thanks for the great info! I love the OG watches, and have wanted one for a while now. My favorite ones are the rosewood/matte black, and the maple/matte black! Thanks again for the great videos, keep em comin'!

  • Cant really think of an instance your t-shirt should be tucked in except for wearing with an actual shirt. Or maybe dress pants, but who does that?

  • I love your chanel and have watched since you started but if you dont mind some constructed criticism spend less time on your paid advertisement it makes your videos look less proffesional in my opinion you go from advice to advertisement is very disconected and off putting except for that small note great video

  • Hey Antonio I am a 18 year old boy and I rocked a black t – shirt Along with a dark grey suit and a black Goodyear welted leather sole captoe Oxfords thanks for your great and timeless advices
