T-shirts come in all different sizes and styles. From the tiniest to the largest, T-shirts can be found to fit everyone. The difference in styles means that no matter what your taste you will be able to find something in a T-shirt that appeals to you. However if you are in the market for T-shirts, you should know that neck sizes for T-shirts often run very differently than they do for other clothing.
Typically T-shirts have a one-size fits all neck for each size offered. In reality such neck sizes really do fit most people. The stretchiness of the knit collar on a T-shirt allows for enough elasticity when needed. Therefore, actual neck sizes are pretty unimportant. This is totally unlike button down shirts where sizing is based on the neck size of the wearer for men’s shirts. Shirt sizes reflect the diameter in inches of a man’s neck. Because they are designed to be worn with the buttons closed at the neck and typically are made from material that doesn’t stretch, such shirts need specific neck sizes because one size fits all definitely would not work.
Differing necklines make T-shirts as easy choice for women. They can choose to show décolletage or not, depending on the neckline they choose. They get to pick from V-necks, scoop necks, boat necklines, traditional crew necks, keyhole necklines, princess necklines and square necklines. It certainly makes the variety to choose from impressive. They don’t need to worry about neck size at all.
Men are not quite this lucky when it comes to neckline choices in T-shirts. They only have V-necks as an acceptable alternative to the crewneck. Luckily this is a smart looking option that even looks much trendier than a crewneck shirt. As an added bonus, it also makes a great option for guys with larger than average necks.
