Most of us have a few short sleeve tees in our wardrobes, but what about long sleeve tees? These shirts might be a little less common than the ever-so-popular short sleeve tees, but they still offer all the same benefits - and a few additional benefits! - and everyone should have some.

You’re probably thinking, ‘why choose long sleeve tees when I already have short sleeve tees?’ Short sleeve tees are also a very good choice, but you should know about the awesome advantages of long sleeves.

Read on to learn why long sleeves are perfect for nearly any occasion.

Why Choose Creative Long Sleeve Tees?

Long sleeve tees, especially tees with creative art printed on them, can become one of your staple pieces of clothing. This is because they bring you the following benefits:

They’re Great For Any Season. Tee shirts always look awesome, but long sleeves can provide the extra warmth and protection you need during the colder months. They’re always in fashion, and they’re always a good choice.

If it’s a bit warm out, you can still wear your favourite long sleeve and protect your skin. If it’s chilly out, you can enjoy the warm fabric against yourself. If it’s even colder, then you can layer more clothing over your long sleeve while still enjoying the soft fabric of the sleeves.

The long sleeves can also protect you from the cold wind or any small pieces of debris that the wind carries.

You Can Even Wear Them When It’s Hotter. Some people might think that long sleeves are only for when it’s chilly, not when it’s hot. But this is incorrect because long sleeves are a perfectly viable option even when it’s sunny.
This is because long sleeves can protect your skin from harmful UV rays that are in sunlight. If you care about protecting your skin, you’ll surely love how easy it is to protect yourself when you wear your favourite long sleeve shirt.

They’re Available In So Many Looks. Just like standard short sleeve tees, a fantastic advantage of long sleeve tees is that you have countless looks to choose from. Are you looking for a certain colour or type of art? You will undoubtedly find something that you adore!

At Doodlewear, we’re thrilled to offer the world our exceptional designs. Our selection of long sleeves is printed with all types of art created by our very talented team of New Zealand artists. You can find everything from inspiring, beautiful art to fun, creative art that makes you smile in our collection.

This versatility means that you can also get several tees that all have very different looks rather than settling for shirts that are just different colours. Pick different looks for different outfits, moods and occasions.

They’re Very Comfortable. Of course, you want your shirts to be comfortable, especially if they’re the bottom layer of your outfit. High-quality long sleeve tees are made with lovely, soft 100% combed cotton that make them a joy to wear. They have long sleeves, so you can enjoy the comforting fabric along your arms as well as your body.

This benefit is especially noticeable when it’s cold and you want to layer your clothing. Even if your top layers are built to be warm and not soft, your long sleeve will still be there to give you a cosy embrace.

You could throw a jacket on top, pair it with your favourite bottoms, find accessories that match the artwork on your shirt and more. People who are into streetwear will surely appreciate a lovely long sleeve tee to build their outfit around.
