From the man for whom fashion is at the bottom of the priorities list to the most discerning of sartorial males: the humble t-shirt has a place in every wardrobe. That’s what makes it an ideal Christmas gift when you’re otherwise in doubt.

To keep it interesting and to keep the gift feeling more special than a plain white basic, prints are the way to go – offering up something to suit personality and show you’ve put in some thought. Printed men’s t-shirts are aplenty, but after the break we’ve singled out 5 examples to get you started.

Dead Meat panther print tee

Animal motifs have been undeniably big for both men and women – but for the former you might want to opt for something more fierce than a woodland owl. Like a roaring panther, perhaps.

Givenchy Rottweiler-print t-shirt

Speaking of fierce, Givenchy’s Rottweiler-print is perfect when snarling out from beneath a tough men’s bomber jacket. Get it for the guy who’s both fearless and fashion forwards.

Alexander McQueen skull-print t-shirt

The beautiful simplicity of white cotton contrasts with a simple black print: the recurrent motif of a skull as featured regularly by McQueen. The right guy can rock it under everything from casual jackets to the sharpest of suits.
