Summer’s long gone at this point. While that might be depressing for the kind of guy who rocks a tee, flips, and a pair of swim trunks all summer long, the cold-weather dressers are coming out of the woodwork and layering on their favorite scarves, jackets, beanies, and long sleeve shirts for men.
Long sleeve shirts are great first and foremost because they keep you warm. Yeah, they might be a bit more constricting than your favorite warm-weather tee, but it’s totally worth it when you’re not losing shivering. Long sleeves are a no-brainer in terms of jackets, hoodies, and sweaters, so why do you bring your tees into the winter? It’s preposterous. Ditch those tees and solely rock long sleeves until May. You’ll be much more toasty.
There are a number of long sleeve shirts we’re geeking over right now, from classic henleys to graphic tee-esque long sleeve t-shirts all types of dudes will love. Whether you’re more worried about looking cool on the streets or you’re just trying to keep warm, here are the best long sleeve shirts to buy online this winter.
