Let Your Underarms Breathe With the Best Men’s Tank Tops

Although the scorching months of 2022 are yet to come, you want to make sure you have more than just your lightweight shirt or T-shirt to battle the warmer days of the year. That’s where the reliable tank top comes in. What was once worn by men as undershirts to stay warm during winter in the 20th century has since been popularized by Hollywood’s leading men (think Marlon Brando in A Streetcar Named Desire) and menswear designers like Olivier Rousteing and Marc Jacobs as a fashionable way for men to show off their biceps and shoulders and give their underarms some breathing room. To get you started, we picked out a few of our favorite tanks for almost any occasion, whether you’re exercising, running errands, or working from home.
