Cotton long sleeve shirts are naturally softer than synthetic blends, making them more comfortable for daily use.
You can go with any color or pattern for a long sleeve tops, including solid colors and prints. Many people choose to wear solid colored tees with contrasting, printed patterns. You can match these tops with jeans, trousers, or leggings. However, if you want to be more formal, you can coordinate the tee with your outerwear, making for a great all-day look!

They offer more room for movement, allow you to be more creative with necklines and designs, and have more comfort than other shirts.

A long sleeve shirt with a short, crew neck and ribbed waist is the classic shawl. This style of shirt has been popular for decades. The shawl can be worn open or closed and is often accompanied by an oversize poncho or blanket. A great thing about shawls is that they look great with just about anything!

Another kind of long sleeve shirts is the pre-necked type. Pre-necks are made from a material called silk, a material that feels amazing against the skin. Pre-necks typically come in a single or double-breasted style and feature ribbed trim on the shoulders. Some feature an extra inch of fabric in the cuffs, while others have open cuffs and collar, similar to a collared shirt. Pre-necks are a good choice for warm, sunny days as well as for wearing with dress pants and skirts.
