V-Neck Tee

Choose comfort with our 100% cotton v-neck tees designed with tall and slim frames in mind. Designed to be a staple wardrobe piece, a v-neck is a great way to elongate your neck and create the illusion of defined lines in your jaw or facial hair. Dress a v-neck t-shirt up with a blazer for date night or pair it with your favorite joggers for a relaxed, weekend-ready look.

Slub Tee

Ideal for anyone looking for the vintage-feel in a new garment, our slub men's tall t-shirt boasts a medium-weight knit that gives the fabric a soft hand-feel. Our slub tees can be a great foundational layer worn under sweaters, while the small slit on the side seams adds additional movement and visual appeal when worn alone.

Henley Tee

A great way to customize your coverage is with one of our henley tees, think crewneck tee with three operational buttons down the front. Plus, all of the American Tall henleys are made with a cotton-blend for added breathability and all-day comfort.

Heavyweight Tee

While we love to keep things light, there are times something a bit more heavy-duty is needed. Our heavyweight tees are made to be our thickest tee to help lock in warmth when temps drop. Wear one on its own or try it layered under a sweater or flannel for cozy comfort.
