Long Sleeve Men’s Shirts: Everything You Need to Know

Shirts are, perhaps, the most important, standout piece of clothing you wear.

Long sleeve men’s shirts offer a classic, versatile look appropriate to wear on nearly every occasion. The vast majority of men see tees as a wardrobe staple that can be worn everywhere with little to no thought. With the sleeves rolled up casually, the shirt becomes the center of attention. Long sleeve shirt is a ruffled, more modern and relaxed statement of gentlemanly serenity. It is quite popular among men of every age because of its acceptance as workwear and casual wear both.

The long-sleeved shirt doesn’t exactly break sartorial boundaries. And yet those extra arm-lengths seem to lend this piece versatility and scope. They’re what you’ll choose when it’s too cold for short sleeves shirts and too warm for a sweater. It can be worn under light jackets if yours is neither tight nor loose, much like your favorite short-sleeved shirt, then it handily veers into the casual smart-casual territory. This shirt style is most flattering on athletic builds.

Where Can You Wear Them?

You can wear a long sleeve shirt almost everywhere as it gives both semi-formal and casual vibe. You can wear it to your office. If you’re planning to out with your friends for a fun night, long sleeves shirt can be the perfect attire for it. If you’re going somewhere nice but don’t want to risk looking overdressed, this is a great option. 

Jetting off a somewhere hot bit leaving somewhere cold? Wearing a long sleeve shirt will be better for this type of transition.

How Is It Different From a Coat/Jacket?

It’s only natural to cut down on the number of layers you will be wearing each day with the changing weather. After all, you stay cooler with fewer garments on your body. The option of wearing a long sleeve shirt instead of a jacket or a coat is always good. 

Long sleeve shirts are breathable and lightweight to start with. In weather where layering your shirt is not an option, it can work on its own too. Do you feel cold by taking off your jacket? Feel hot when you put it back on? Go with the long sleeve shirt and feel perfectly balanced.
