How To Buy Perfect Fit T-shirt For Men


The perfect T-shirt for men should not be too tight or too loose. It should give you a good fit so that it doesn’t look unflattering or too tight. Therefore, it is important to have your measurements on hand to tally it up with our t-shirt size chart for males in India. You can find this chart right next to the t-shirt sizes titled ‘Best Fit’.

Shoulder Seams:

The seams of the shoulders are one of the best ways you can tell how well a t-shirt fits. Ideally, the seams should reach the end of your shoulders and if they extend further down, then it’s too big, and if they don’t reach the end of your shoulders, the t-shirt is too small.


The sleeves of a T-shirt should extend down your upper arm. Hence, if you’re tall, the sleeves you go for might have to be longer to look more proportional to your body type.


The hem of your t-shirts should not fall anywhere above your hips, or they’re small. Your waistband should be covered or even extend a few inches past that.


The shape of t-shirts is dependent on the quality. Some T-shirts hang loose (like a box) which will make them look unattractive. Opt for high-quality men’s t-shirts that are good for your body type and avoid low-grade quality tees.
