The name of this blue men’s crop top is Thebe. It has long sleeves that are finished with raw edges. This fun piece is for those who like a crop top, but want an elegant version of this sporty item. We chose to use an extraordinary fabric and use it in the same way as making a crop top. The waffle knit has a very classic appearance. To use it in a different and modern way gives it a very unique look and feel.
This blue knit crop top neckline is finished with a black ribbed board, giving it a sweater like feel. The fabric is wrapped in the front for a fun look. It is cut oblique so the waffle knit fabric creates a graphic play with lines. This kind of crop top is also known as a wrap top or a criss cross top.
The backside of this blue men’s crop top has a raw edge center seam.
How to style this blue men’s crop top
This blue wrap crop top is a surprisingly versatile item. It is a fun option to wear if you don’t want to wear a cardigan but are looking for some extra warmth. It is an all seasonal piece.
We styled this men’s crop top with a long black button-up shirt. This gives a more grunge or rock vibe to this eccentric item. Especially combined with our dark blue faux leather trousers with tie belt. This black and blue outfit is a quirky one. Wear it with black boots with the trousers tucked in for a tough look.
For those who dare you can also wear this item solo over a pair of trousers. This accentuates the sporty feel of the wrapped men’s top. Together with the blue leather look trousers or black slim trousers you will have a fun combination. A pair of sneakers will accentuate the sporty feel.
This criss cross crop top is also an item that can be easily put on over a shirt or long sleeve when a spring or summer day cools off. Perfect for creating layers.
Features of waffle knit
Waffle fabric, also known as honeycomb fabric, can be made by either weaving or knitting. It has raised threads that form small square grids which produces a three-dimensional effect, like the pattern of an ultra-miniature breakfast waffle, which is how it gets its name. This style of weave or knit makes fabric more breathable than most, and more absorbent. Waffle knitted fabrics also have thermal qualities.
