When it comes to tee shirts, nothing feels quite like cotton. A natural fiber, cotton is hypoallergenic, breathable and gets softer over time. While most men have a drawerful of cotton crew neck tees, the v-neck tee shirt is equally useful and very versatile. Some v-neck tee shirts have a high vee, sitting close to the neck. Other, more traditional styles have a lower cut vee neckline. Either way, most vee-neck tees are a great option when you don't want an undershirt peeking out from button-down shirts, sweater or polos. These tees also look great worn alone for a casual style.
Purists will love the 100% cotton some brands offer. For a closer fit, many tees are made of cotton with some spandex, lycra or elastane blended in. This provides just enough stretch for a smooth body-hugging line. And you're not confined to basic white, either. Look for cotton vee-neck tees in a variety of colors, including burgundy, gray and navy as well as fashion shades like flame orange, espresso and red.
