The Best Men’s Long Sleeve T-Shirts, According to Hyperenthusiastic Reviewers

Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed products and single out the most convincing. While we’ve already covered the best men’s short-sleeve white T-shirts, the best men’s short-sleeve black T-shirts and the best men’s crewneck sweatshirts, here we’re zeroing in on the best men’s long sleeve tees on Amazon. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity).

The Best Long-Sleeve T-Shirt for Men Under Six Feet

Russell Athletic Men’s Essential Long Sleeve Tee
From $8 at Amazon

“Last fall I purchased a number of different brands of long sleeve T’s and after a short time it was plain to see that Russell won out. They fit me well, I’m a short (5’8”) barrel-chested 190 lb grumpy old man. Russell’s tees stay soft, hold their shape, and surprisingly the collar doesn’t roll too much. So after my first purchase I returned and bought another six.”

The Best Long-Sleeve T-Shirt for Men Over Six Feet

Port & Company Men’s Tall Long Sleeve 50/50 Cotton/Poly T Shirt
From $7 at Amazon

“I love these shirts. This order was for 4 more. It is very hard to find a true tall length shirt. These shirts are plenty long for the taller people. I am 6’5” and they are great. I believe I have about 10-12 of the long sleeve shirts from Port & Company. All the colors I have are great. I’m sure I’ll be buying more in the future.”

The Best Logo Tagless Long-Sleeve T-Shirt

Champion Men’s Long-Sleeve T-Shirt
From $11 at Amazon

“Just what I wanted for in between short sleeves and sweat shirts. I washed it before wearing and there was very minimal shrinkage. The shirt is comfortable, the material is a bit thin so you might not get many year’s wear out of it. But for that price, what do you expect. The champion emblem is stitched into the fabric not an ink press. This is a good deal.”

The Best Plain Tagless Long-Sleeve T-Shirt

Hanes Men’s Long-Sleeve ComfortSoft T-Shirt
From $16 for 4 at Amazon

“I use these under my hospital scrubs. I am a very physically active person when I work. These have held up well and after each day I wear them, I wash them and air dry them.”

The Best UPF Long-Sleeve T-Shirt

Hanes Men’s Long Sleeve Cool Dri T-Shirt UPF 50+
From $14 for 2 at Amazon

“I’m a dermatologist. Sunscreen is good, very good, but not amazing. Shirts work better. If you’re at the beach, does it really hurt to wear a shirt like this when you’re not in the water? These shirts are the cheapest and simplest UPF shirts I’ve ever bought. If you tend to run hot, get the white color, which cools you off more than other colors. Sizes run like typical Hanes T Shirts.”

The Best Moisture-Wicking Long-Sleeve T-Shirt

Baleaf Men’s UPF 50+ UV Sun Protection Outdoor Running Performance T-Shirt
From $14 at Amazon

“This shirt lived up to everything that the seller advertised. It is extremely lightweight and wicked perspiration. It kept me cool in the heat and warm in the cool night air of Southern Africa. I will definitely buy more of these in the future.”

The Best Heavyweight Long-Sleeve T-Shirt

Carhartt Men’s Signature Sleeve Logo Long Sleeve T-Shirt
From $20 at Amazon

“I have several of these because they last a long time and are built really well. I get lots of compliments as well although that’s not why I buy them. Overall they fit better than any other long sleeve shirt I have every owned. I did notice that the length can vary but I can always tuck it in.”

The Best Heavyweight Long-Sleeve T-Shirt With Pocket

Dickies Men’s Big & Tall Long-Sleeve Heavyweight Crew-Neck T-Shirt
From $14 at Amazon

“These shirts hold up tough. For Big & Tall - they are longer than regular shirts but not dresses down past the butt. For a man who definitely needs Big & Tall but isn’t so Big and Tall that he needs Andre the Giant sized clothes, these are great work shirts. They hang decently below the belt. Finding brands that are just right is great.”

The Best Plain Long-Sleeve T-Shirt With Pocket

Gildan - Ultra Cotton Long Sleeve T-Shirt with a Pocket
From $7 at Amazon

“I’ve bought two of these in past couple months. I bought one for my brother to wear under another shirt or sweater that he’s getting for Christmas… then, after receiving his, ordered one for me. I got my sleeves into some soapy water that also had bleach in it… now the cuffs are multi-colored but the price was such that it doesn’t really matter. I can always order another. This is a nice weight 100% cotton tee with a chest pocket good for both men & women. The only thing I’d change is for it to be made tagless.”

The Best Mock Neck Long-Sleeve T-Shirt

MJ Soffe Men’s Long-Sleeve Cotton T-Shirt
From $8 at Amazon

“I bought only one of these shirts for fear that it wouldn’t be exactly what I wanted. I was relieved to see it was exactly what I ordered. I really like it. They are versatile and can be worn just as is or layered with an outer short-sleeve shirt or even a long-sleeved plaid shirt. It’s very soft and made of good material. I’ve had it for a while now and so far it hasn’t shrunk from the wash or faded. It has a nice weight. It’s not too heavy or too thin. I would recommend them to anyone.”

The Best Cold-Weather Long-Sleeve T-Shirt

Jerzees Men’s Long-Sleeve T-Shirt
From $6 at Amazon

“My husband loves this as an extra layer in cold weather. We had below zero cold lately and he said this kept him toasty. I originally got it as a pajama top, but he likes it fine as a regular shirt. It washed great and keeps its vibrant color.”
