Out of all the neck type crewneck t-shirt probably the most common neckline we see on a t-shirt and very popular among both men and women. Features of crewneck t-shirt is that they feature a round neckline and fit tightly around the base of the neck.
Crewneck best suited for:
- Person a slight build.
- Person a ling or narrow face.
- Person with very round shoulders.
- A v-neck t-shirt and types of body well suited for? Names says it all, forms a pointed v shape at the neck, providing more space round the neckline and adds visual interest. A v-neck t-shirt great match for a blazer or cardigan.
V-neck best suited for:
- Person with square or round faces.
- Shorter guys – because they add some height.
- Person with well defined chests.
- How t-shirt should fit you: t-shirt should not fit too tight or too loose. Too tight means it will be clingy and too loose fit it will dangle around.
- Arms fitting: When comes to choosing a short sleeve t-shirt should hit at the midpoint of your upper arm.
- Torso fitting: finding the right fitting t-shirt are somewhat challenging for guys with long torso. Special if you are tall and slim. A predicament is that finding the right length without the disappearing in its great swelling wave’s folds. For situation like that go for t-shirt with long-line cut that cover the length without being too boxy. Length of t-shirt should fall just below your belt.
- Shoulders fitting: when it comes to shoulder fitting make sure your t-shirt line up your shoulder line.
- Matching your skin tones:
- Pale skin, red or blonde hair: grey, brown, darker green or navy would be good for you. Contrast is the key so avoid bright colors, white and pastels.
- Olive-toned skin with dark hair: I would say most colors would suit you, especially azure, pinks, and purples, red. Avoid yellow or olive.
- Dark skin, hair: I would say most colors too and avoid brown, black or dark shades.
