10 of the Coolest Men’s Tees for your Summer Wardrobe

We pretty much live in T-shirts here at Coolector HQ so we’re always on the hunt for new tees to add to our line up. Huckberry are always one of our first ports of call when the need arises for a new tee as they have some of our favourite brands on their digital shelves. Check out our pick of 10 of the coolest men’s tees for your summer wardrobe below:

Wellen Hemp Stripe Tee – $31

Wellen’s hemp blend fabric is definitely one of the best we’ve ever pulled on. The ace up their sleeve? Choosing the highest quality hemp and blending it with just the right amount of organic cotton to create a soft and durable fabric that’s better for the environment so you can feel good about adding it to your summer wardrobe rotation. We reach for these tees on the regular since getting our hands on ’em, and we know you definitely will as well. ($31)


Proof 72-Hour Merino Tencel Tee – $57

The team at Proof have delivered a performance travel tee which can be worn for 72 hours straight without showing any wear or tear—or, probably more importantly, odour. As their best-selling travel T-shirt to date, the 72-Hour Tee is back with a lightweight Tencel™ fabric that’s incredibly sustainable and just as impressive and functional as the merino wool it’s blended with. To back up that claim, it can be packed as your only shirt on demanding excursions around the world. When your travels are far-flung and you’re packing light, there’s only one tee built to fit the bill. ($57)


Flint & Tinder Slub Pocket Tee – $22

Flint and Tinder’s Slub Tees are crafted from a ridiculously soft jersey fabric that we’re big fans of here at Coolector HQ. They knew the fabric was the most pivotal part of a tee, so they developed the perfect material – super soft and with a slubby texture – that feels fantastic against the skin. A slightly longer fit and ideal sleeve length really finish things off with a flattering fit, and to top it all off they’re preshrunk and carefree – just wear, wash, and repeat. 100% made in Los Angeles. ($22)


Taylor Stitch Heavy Bag Tee – $36

Crafted from a heavyweight but also supremely soft fabric, when you pull on the Heavy Bag Tell from Taylor Stitch you’ll notice it feels a little more robust than your run-of-the-mill tee. Don’t let the name fool you though—the Heavy Bag Tee is plenty breathable for the summer months, the “heavy” moniker comes from the high-quality fabric that can actually handle an honest day’s work. Better still, the fabric’s an 8 oz blend of up-cycled cotton and recycled polyester that requires no water to manufacture and emits only trace amounts of CO2, part of Taylor Stitch’s commitment to responsible manufacturing. ($36)


Flint & Tinder Supima Air Knit V-neck Tee – $29

Billed as the cashmere of cotton, these are straight up the softest, best fitting shirts you’re ever likely to own. The secret ingredient of their comfort? Special and rare long-staple Supima cotton from California’s San Joaquin Valley, which is knit with a new advanced technique called “Baby Jersey” that provides a luxurious and airy fabric. Seriously – we wish you could reach through the screen and touch these tees to understand just how soft and comfortable they are. ($29)


Seager Smokey Tee – $30

Reviving the long since forgotten spirit of the Wild West and the cowboy culture that extended through the Rocky Mountains, Seager Co. is inspiring and equipping the everyday adventurer with carefully and thoughtfully designed gear to handle a walk in the park or a month-long road trip alike. Their tees are a wearable representation of their ethos, channeling this rugged mindset into their designs, styles, and fits – not to mention, they’re about as comfy as it gets for day in day out wearing. ($30)


Richer Poorer Short Sleeve Pocket Tee – $38

When you’re comfortable, you’re more confident. That truth stands behind everything Richer Poorer craft. Rooted in California-cool, committed to uncomplicated style, and sourcing the best fabrics out there, these guys are rapidly becoming the go-to brand for the basics at the backbone of your wardrobe. Cut from supremely soft and robust pima cotton, their Short Sleeve Pocket Tee has a classic cut that will, quite literally go with everything and will pretty quickly become your favourite everyday t-shirt. ($38)


Vuori Tradewind Tee – $48

Vuori’s technical activewear is made to move, sweat, and workout in, but it is also cleverly designed so as not to be an eyesore for everyday wear, and that’s what we really love about it. This understated and stylish performance garb goes from the rock gym to the beer garden without breaking stride. Better still, it’s all made using innovative, high quality fabrics that sport four-way stretch, moisture-wicking and quick-drying properties to keep you comfortable in any element of your active lifestyle. ($48)


Howler Brothers Rodeo Ostrich Pocket T-Shirt – $32

Season after season, we typically rely on Howler Bros to deck us out with handsome, versatile tees here at Coolector HQ and we definitely need some more in preparation for the rising temperatures ahead this summer. The guys from the Lone Star state haven’t disappointed this summer (no surprise there) with pieces like this ace looking Rodeo Ostrich Pocket T-Shirt. Crafted from an extra soft cotton-poly blend, this easy-wearing tee is the ideal way to show your love for this iconic Austin-bred brand. ($32)


Patagonia Fitz Roy Horizons Tee – $35

Patagonia needs no introduction of course: their dedication to enhancing the way outdoor gear is crafted and sold has made them a legend among outdoorsmen the world over. This awesome looking tee is the perfect example of this in action: each one is crafted with 0.26 pounds of scrap fabric and 4.8 discarded plastic bottles, and uses 96% less water and creates 45% less CO2 than a conventional cotton tee.
