Just because a t-shirt is a t-shirt, it doesn’t mean that we should always be happy to just wear any cheap product. Sure, they are often used as undershirts and are hardly seen but sometimes it’s just nice to wear something so simple that has been made to the highest of quality.

Seriously, once you’ve worn a top-notch V-neck once, you’ll find it impossible to ever thrown on some of the cheap guff that you did before. This fantastic V-neck t-shirt from Tommy Hilfiger is a prime example. Made from a soft and comfortable material and a regular fit, once you put it on, you’ll instantly feel the difference between good and bad quality.

You can always count on Calvin Klein to deliver when it comes to stylish, trendy, and comfortable menswear. In terms of quality and materials used they also consistently score higher than most and that is why we love their men’s Pima cotton V-neck t-shirt.

This particular t-shirt has a contrasting design across the neck and shoulders which further adds to its appeal and you can always count on their famous logo on the chest to attract some admiring glances too. A Pima cotton construction is what delivers the ultimate in comfort, however, and this for us is the major selling point of this t-shirt.

Slim fit is all the rage these days which is fine as long as you don’t have the beer belly that a few of us at Mensgear have. If a tighter fit is something that you prefer from your V-neck t-shirt, then this tee from True Religion is one you might want to look at.

You only have red and blue to choose from in terms of colors but we liked both of them, to be honest. Another selling point for us was the wide and deep V-neck collar which adds to the appeal of this 100% cotton t-shirt.

Another of the popular V-neck t-shirts for men in the Mensgear office is definitely this slim-fit design from Nautica. Available in five different colors and made from 100% handpicked cotton, this is a tee that will have you both looking great and feeling comfortable at the same.

Nautica is known for the consistent quality that they deliver and once again this is evident in their exceptional range of V-neck t-shirts. Being a slim-fit you should expect that it will be quite snug but as long as you get your sizing right, you’ll find that it fits perfectly.

Basic black is a color that will always suit a top-quality V-neck but even if you wanted something a little brighter, you’ll find it in this range of V-neck t-shirts from Hurley. Comfort is the name of the game with this particular line and most of this comes down to the superior construction and the premium cotton material that will have you basking in itch-free comfort all day long.

Reasonably priced as well, this t-shirt represents some of the better value that you’ll find among our many reviews. The fit was a tiny bit on the tight side for us but admittedly we’d been out on the beers the night before.

Suitable to be worn alone or underneath a lightweight sweater or jacket, this classic fit V-neck t-shirt offers comfort, style, and a good fit.

Machine washable, this t-shirt is available in three attractive colors and sports the classic v-neck and the famous Lacoste crocodile logo. The price will depend largely on the size and while it’s far from the cheapest t-shirt around, it falls somewhere in the middle of what we’ve reviewed so far.

Designed to provide a better stretch in four directions and sporting a sew-free construction that will minimize chaffing, you’re never going to enjoy a more comfortable t-shirt when working out.

For your money, you’ll not be getting one, or two t-shirts but three. You’ll get one each of blue, white, and grey which will give you plenty of options the next time you’re planning your look for the day.

We cannot argue with the 100% cotton construction either as this provides pure comfort and while the designs are fairly simple, it’s the fit of these slim-fit shirts that really impresses us.

How about these for some bright and cheerful colors from Robert Graham? Some might say that you have to be brave to wear yellow or pink but if you can manage to stump up the guts, you’ll be mightily impressed at how you look.

In terms of comfort levels, these are very high which you might come to expect given the higher than average cost of these V-neck t-shirts. Summing up though, if you have the money to spend, you would certainly be getting a very high-quality cotton-blend t-shirt for that money.

Many of us in the Men’s Gear offices grew up wearing Ralph Lauren Polo shirts so this is both a blast to the past for us. It also shows that we were likely trendsetters if they’re still massively popular today.

None of us can remember being lucky enough to pick up a 3-pack at this kind of price though, so perhaps we’ve been done somewhere along the line. That said, these are soft and as comfortable as anything else you will find and the quality in terms of design and stitching is at the standard you come to expect from such a major brand.

Sporty in design but complete in comfort, the cotton blends and double stitching used in the construction of this two-tone regular fit t-shirt will ensure that you never experience irritation around the neckline.

We have very few complaints with the only one being that we wish they had more than just one color scheme to choose from.

Hugo Boss always adds a stamp of class that nobody else can get close to. They manage to make anything they design look a few levels above anything else on the market and as soon as you see the superior quality of their menswear, you can just see why they cost a bomb to buy.

This V-neck t-shirt is another fine example of this as it takes just one look and feels to realize that you are getting the very best in design, materials, and construction. We do advise that you pay close attention to the washing and ironing instructions for this masterpiece, however, as it will take plenty of care to keep it looking as fantastic as it does.

V-neck t-shirts don’t all have to be plain one-color offerings despite many preferring them to be. We actually like to wear something a little different and for us, this Alternative Men’s Boss V-Neck T-Shirt is one that fits the bill.

The striped design is certainly pleasing on the eye but it’s the tri-blend of materials that has to be behind why the tee feels so soft and comfortable. As an all-rounder, the Alternative is definitely one of our favorite t-shirts that we’ve reviewed today.

While the bold Nautica graphic on the front really brings a bit of style it’s the comfort that is what really attracted us to this tee. The cotton construction has been performed to a high standard and they have the sizing spot on as they fit like a glove.

If you’re more into sporty activewear than your traditional smart and casual V-neck, then Puma is one of the labels you’ll probably want to check out. They are iconic giants of the sportswear industry so it’s quite fitting that they’ve decided to call this particular tee the Puma Iconic.

As you would expect from such a large brand, comfort levels are out of this world and the quality of construction will ensure that this t-shirt will last a good few years if well looked after. We have to admit that it’s a little on the pricey side though.

As a fashion label, you can only say that you have made it when you appear at least three times in the same buying guide on Mensgear! Of course, if anyone was going to do it, it was going to be them and we have to say that this is probably the favorite of the three of their V-neck tees that we’ve listed here.

As you might expect, comfort levels are amazing which is down to the quality craftsmanship that has obviously gone into the shirt. Furthermore, have you ever had a bad word to say about the design of a Calvin Klein t-shit? No neither have we and this looks great, especially the contrasting pocket.

Volcom is another hugely popular American brand of men’s activewear and it’s easy to see why if you’ve ever worn their stuff before. Known for their young and active styles and for the ultimate comfort levels that their clothing ranges bring, you’d be foolish to not even consider checking out their range of heather Short Sleeve V-Neck Tee’s.

What we particularly like is the double stitching that can be found on the neck, shoulder, and arms as this ensures a good fit that doesn’t stretch out. It has to be said that their many color options are also pretty tempting too.
