The 5 Best Brands For White T-Shirts


Whatever the season, every wardrobe needs a good few white t-shirts, but not all tees are created equal. Whatever your budget, here’s where to find the best…

James Perse

Best for: An investment

Few labels represent Cali cool quite like James Perse. The stateside brand specialises in luxe basics, and its white tees are some of the best. Cotton/jersey styles hold their shape without being too rigid, while combed cotton designs have the perfect slub finish – ideal for a relaxed spring/summer look. They may be expensive, but these tees are built to last – they  wash and wash, and still look great.



Best for: Quality

British label Sunspel has been making t-shirts for over 100 years, so it’s no surprise it’s got quite good at it. The brand is renowned for unfussy classics in the very best fits, and that’s exactly what its simple, perfectly cut white t-shirts are. Ultra-fine cotton makes them comfortable, soft and light.




Best for: Affordability

Of course Uniqlo has made the cut. Few high-street names do basics quite as well as the Japanese brand. Its classic white tees feature signature comfortable cottons and simple cuts. Starting from £5.90, there’s nowhere better if you’re after some affordable, good-quality layering pieces.


A Day’s March

Best for: Lack of choice

If you’re even overwhelmed by the amount of variety available at Sunspel, James Perse et al, A Day’s March is for you. The sustainable brand makes just two versions – one classic, one slightly heavier weight, both made with local materials and carbon offsetting. Designed to be clothes without an expiry date, this is the place to upgrade your essentials with a guilt-free conscience.



Best for: Middle ground

Arket’s tees are well made, perfectly structured, and available at mid-high street prices. Our team swear by them – affordable enough to buy in bulk, thick enough to wear alone or layered up, the brand’s considered Scandi design pays off here.
