For those of you who’ve been grinding away in the gym all winter, this is the time of year when you get to show off. As fitness diehards say: sun’s out, guns out. But a tank top is more than just a vanity piece. It’s a practical way to keep cool in sweltering heat. That being said, there’s a right way and a wrong way to pull this off.
This year, men’s fashion has returned to a more rugged streetwear aesthetic. Justin Bieber and Kanye West have made band tees and bold logos cool again. And judging by the incessant fanfare over Justin Theroux’s sleeveless vintage tee last week, the official trend of the summer has arrived.
There aren’t many ways you can go wrong with a tank. But if you want to add some edge and show your trend awareness, opt for a tank that feels more like an altered t-shirt. Try a tank that more closely resembles a shirt with the arms cut off. Our Basic Longline Muscle Tank Top is the perfect blend of both worlds. Made of cotton and polyester, the crewneck shirt lets you bare your arms while keeping the rest covered. You can show just enough to impress passersby, but protect the rest of your torso from too much sun exposure.
When shopping for your summer tank, try to avoid armholes that dip too low or tank straps that are too skinny. After all, you’re looking for a tank; not a halter top.
Going sleeveless this summer is about rocking a daring streetwear aesthetic while still showing off just a little. We all have the right to bare arms in style.
