What's A Bro Tank?

According to the online Urban Dictionary, a bro tank is, simply, a "male tank top." Urban Dictionary goes on to say "(t)he males who wear them are fellow bros with decent sized muscles." I appreciate the definition being "decent-sized" and, because I consider being a bro a birthright, I fully agree. However, there's more to it.

Men's Sleeveless T-Shirts: How to Wear, How Not to Wear

When you're going sleeveless, you're exhibiting more skin and, hopefully, more self-confidence. We think GQ Magazine has the best advice for the scenario, and it boils down to five points.

  • Get a good fit. You don't want something super tight and you don't want something sloppy.
  • Don't show more skin than there is fabric. And don't show nipple.
  • Feel free to get colorful. GQ adamantly advises against sporting a shirt that talks about how much you work out (e.g. "Wake. Gym. Sleep. Repeat."). They do recommend using the opportunity to flash some color style.
  • Beware of da hair. With that extra epidermis exposure, you're possibly going to be showing hair that you don't want to show. Shoulder hair, back hair, neck hair, too much arm pit hair. The advice is simple: groom before wearing.
  • You can wear your muscle shirt in other contexts than the gym or the beach. If you're going to a backyard barbecue, for example, you could layer it with a linen overshirt. To put it simply, you don't have to limit yourself.

Men's Muscle Shirts: Call It What You Will

We're using these terms interchangeably. Running t-shirts, bro tank, men's sleeveless t-shirts, men's muscle shirts. They're basically all the same thing: a t-shirt without sleeves. In this list, we've got two kinds: regular fit and compression fit. Since compression fits are pretty specific in function (i.e., working out), we're focussing primarily on regular fit shirts.

The prices are all very affordable in this list and the shirts all have the technical aspects that you'll need for keeping comfortable while you work out...or while you sit on the couch. We're not ranking the shirts, they're numbered just for convenience. You'll find what you need here.
