On this site, the Undiemeister® webshop, we extensively describe the differences between t-shirts. And often, true this time as well, we tell you that a simple article like a t-shirt isn’t all that simple at all. One of the differences is the color most commonly chosen for a shirt, another is the length of a shirt. The combination of color and length largely determines the range of options. We see that a long black shirt is becoming more and more popular and wondered why that is.
A long black shirt is more multifunctional than a white shirt, short or long
With a long black shirt you can go several ways. You can use the long black shirt as an undershirt, because the benefit of the length is that the shirt won’t crawl out of your pants that fast. And a shirt that is constantly crawling out of your pants is annoying. You have to keep putting that back into your pants all the time and we don’t blame you for not wanting to do that. And if you forget to put your shirt back into your pants it immediately looks sloppy.
You are walking around “with your shirt hanging out of your pants”, can you imagine? Maybe during a reception where you took the time to wear a jacket (and for oddballs among us a tie, where can you find these nowadays?), and then you have your shirt out of your pants, what a wasted effort. But a long black shirt is not only useful as an undershirt.
Many of our black t-shirts are also worn as “regular” t-shirts. In that case a long black shirt is simply more multifunctional than a short shirt. Even if you don’t wear a t-shirt tucked in your pants, we rarely see that, but it will undoubtedly happen, the benefit of a black shirt is that you won’t see a bare belly, or a bare back if you happen to move.
Now we know that not everyone minds that, but a long black shirt simply looks neater. Because not everyone is waiting for the sight of your six-pack (unless you are the proud owner of a keg). Or a hairy butt crack if you happen to bend over to grab something. Not that you’ve one of those of course but even a non-hairy butt crack is not going to appeal to everyone. And we’ll ignore the bold breeze that just happens to come along. At that point you will wish that you’ve worn a black shirt, especially a long black shirt made of the exceptional Mellowood® fabric quality, a fabric that offers an insulating effect.
So are you looking for a nice black shirt? All shirts from Undiemeister® have a bit of extra length and are therefore long by definition. Have fun shopping
