It’s back to the basics – we’ve sussed out every type of T-shirt and where you can get them in Singapore.
No matter your body shape, there’s no denying that T-shirts are great building blocks for any look. Whether you’re embracing your Y2K era, or even going for that “weird girl” aesthetic, pair any classic T-shirt with a pair of jeans and you’ll have a chic look that doesn’t take a lot of time or effort to put together. Not sure where to start? Read on for our list of where to get the best T-shirts in Singapore.
T-shirts in Singapore for any style and occasion
1. Wet Tee Shirt
We love a good parody as much as anyone, and you can find a huge variety of them printed on shirts at Wet Tee Shirt. Despite the name, none of these shirts are actually wet. Instead, you’ll find our local humour perfectly encapsulated in familiar logos with cheeky spins and funny wordplay. We think they make the perfect gift for your friend who’s proudly local.
Wet Tee Shirt, available online and at #06-11, 22 New Industrial Road, Singapore 536208
2. Sarah Thursday
If your love for graphic tees knows no bounds, check out this local brand. Sarah Thursday is an independent label that started off with prints and stickers. Now, it’s expanded into apparel, bags, and even phone cases. Fans of Japanese themes or anime-related merch need to check this place out. Every design is created and illustrated by Sarah herself, who even personally packs and ships the orders. If you subscribe to the Patreon and join the Thursday Tee Club, you can even get a new Sarah Thursday shirt monthly!

There’s something about the 90s aesthetic that Pull&Bear just seems to do so well. T-shirts here are perfect for any occasion – whether you’re going out with friends or simply lounging at home. From plain to printed, you can pick from a colourful selection of cropped tops or ribbed T-shirts. If those aren’t your style, go for the oversized cotton tees or crewneck shirts.
Pull&Bear, available online and at multiple locations including Bugis and Orchard
4. True Classic
The Henley, need we say more? This hybrid between the crew neck and V-cut shirt comes with buttons that add sophistication and a little variation from the usual round neck tee. True Classic carries this style with both long and short sleeves, and you can even get package deals on the website. Plus, the brand gives back by donating shirts monthly to shelters and schools to lend a helping hand to the homeless community. Shop and help a good cause.

5. Source Collections
Sometimes all you need is a fuss-free option. Instead of scrolling endlessly on websites or digging through the racks at a department store, check out Source Collections. The product range might be small, but it’ll have everything you’re looking for in classic plain tops. Go for the cap sleeve style T-shirt which is perfect for a casual day out at a cafe. Alternatively, pair it with a pencil skirt and look extra sharp at the office.

6. Benjamin Barker
Classier than a typical crewneck but way more comfortable than a crisp button-up, polo tees are the pinnacle of versatility. A wardrobe staple for many, the polo tee can be styled to your personal taste. Whether it’s for work or day-to-day events, you’ll be comfortable and still look stylish. Benjamin Barker’s Supima polo tee features anti-UV and water-repellent properties, which makes it perfect for a trip to the golf course!

It can be hard to find clothes that are both functional and fashionable, but Kydra’s got it down to a T. We’re welcoming the athleisure aesthetic with its collection of muscle tees, cropped tops and meshed shirts. With attire that’s breathable, stretchy, and flatters the curves, you can strut your stuff at the gym and when you’re out for drinks.

There’s no denying that Uniqlo has one of the biggest selections of T-shirts available in Singapore. It’s the go-to place for anyone’s fashion needs, especially if you’re getting a whole collection of basics. Plain and simple crewneck T-shirts are the bread and butter here, but if you know Uniqlo, it’s also got great printed tees. Collaborating with brands like Keith Haring and Disney, you’ll find stylish graphic tees that don’t go over the top.

9. Paul Smith
Have you checked out Paul Smith’s casual-cool line of tees? This British institution needs no introduction, nor does the label’s signature PS by Paul Smith. Multi-coloured stripes adorn everything from ties to socks to pocket squares, and yes – T-shirts! Comprising playful yet wearable pieces, this one’s definitely for the adventurous individual. Of course, you can also get simple polo tees in many different colours instead.
