Forget the designer shades or the waist bags, the most important piece you’ll pick up this season is, without a doubt, the black T-shirt. A universal menswear staple, the black tee can pretty much complement any outfit.

However, not all black tees are created equal, and finding the right one is no easy feat. From V-neck, crewneck, and round necklines, to relaxed, boxy, and slim fits, the options are endless, making the quest for the perfect black T-shirt at times overwhelming. That said, we’ve compiled a nifty little list to help you choose the perfect black T-shirt. And what’s more, everything here is under £50, so not only will you look a million dollars, your bank account will too!
