The ideal length of a t-shirt traditional is between the first and the second third of your hips, this measurement also goes for a casual shirt, since it allows the look to enclose the top of his legs, sizing correctly its silhouette, after all, the brain needs these reference points. In the case of oversized t-shirts, also known as the t-shirts “longtail” or “longline”, the danger of the shortening of the legs it seems obvious!
Ever since the Channel Male made it very clear that some pieces should not be longer than necessary in order to benefit the silhouette, with this in mind it would be incorrect to use an oversized t-shirt? Well, we can say this kind of trend is directed to those who do not give much importance to seem more low, more high, more fat or more skinny, it is the “early-adopter” fashion, that is: it is a novelty and is out and about, therefore he will use it, even knowing that within a few months the clothes may become obsolete.I could write a huge text about the buying habits of this type of consumer fashion so common in the current days, but will be for another post, our focus here is on the other.
Oversized t-shirts men’s – lengths and features
- Theoretically it is much longer than a t-shirt, but the labels have already identified that not everyone is comfortable wearing a sweater that comes up to the knees, all the guy wants is a t-shirt differentiated to give a modernized the look, then you will find 3 sizes: one of them (image above, left) comes almost up to the end of the hip, another completely covers your hip (photo, centre), and the third gets half of the thigh (photo, right).
- The sleeves can also vary, there are models in that they are fair, in other, more wide and long. The end of the t-shirt can be straight, baulado (photo, center), or longtail, with the back slightly longer.
- The design goes from basic white to the with pockets patterned, full print, sports, and those that simulate a rollover of t-shirts, but it is good to remember that these cut silhouette that is a crazy thing!
How to wear oversized t-shirts male
If you enjoyed the visual elongated of t-shirt longline can take some steps to not looking like their legs have only 2 palmos-length:
- Baggy pants too much will make the look very 90’s, and shorten even more the legs, you prefer the slim fit. On the other hand the skinny jeans overly fair are looking like tights, and you may not want this;
- The footwear can be barreled downto, again, do not cut the silhouette, and will work even better if they are in a tone similar to the pants.
- Remember that the part is made to be used on the outside of the pants, so don’t put all that fabric to the inside, it will get embolado and flaky;
- Gives to overlay the t-shirt, but the jacket or shirt has to be casual and modern, but it feels as though you are completely lost with the workpiece;
- Many t-shirts of this type also has the sleeves to be longer, fold them is one way to look stripped downand does not shorten the arms;
- Details at chest heightas prints, sleeves type raglan, buttons and pockets are a good way to draw attention to your face;
- Tie a shirt at the waisthelps to break up the visual elongated too much, leaving the visual as well stripped;
Oversized t-shirts men’s – contraindications
- Not favoring the chubby(it seems that the belly ends at the knee), incidentally, does not favor or who has a light tummy beer, because it is not so loose on the height of the abdomen, marking the most the body;
- Also does not favor the shorties, since they slice the silhouette, it shortens the leg and gives a strange dimension to the back, stretching it too;
- It is not a good option for work, unless you have some occupation where the staff is well desencanado with the dress code;
- As has been already exploited for some stations, but only now reached the mainstream market, may not last long as a trendand fall quickly into oblivion;
- Has a amount of combinations are very limited, don’t go in there very well with tailoring and other items more arrumadinhos.
I only have one personal request, if you are using one of those t-shirts, don’t quit as well…
I don’t know why the Instagram has a few dozens of people using exactly this combination or something very close. Fashion is not so, fashion is not dress like the world, thinking that is dressing different, show that you are a guy that the only of the paranauês and make a look really original.
