    One of those

    "There was one of those men, whose name was xyz/who was wearing a T-shirt".

    "There was one of the three games, KOF 2000".

    Please check.

    Re: One of those

    Neither is correct. What are you trying to say with "There was ..."? And what's "KOF"?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    KOF means king of fighters (video game). "I want to say, there were three games (like street fighters, king of fighters and mustapha) one of those three games was KOF".

    "There were five men standing there and there was one of those man whose name was xyz".

(Both BrE and AmE put the period inside the quotation mark when it ends the quoted sentence.)

    "There were five men standing there. and there was one of those man whose One of them was named was xyz".
    See my corrections above. Punctuation around quotation marks is tricky, so don't worry too much when you get it wrong. You do have to put the opening quotation mark at the beginning of the quoted text though. Please remember to capitalize the first letter of each major word in a proper noun.

    Thank you, GoesStation. We've been telling tufguy that ad nauseam since he joined in Feb, 2014.

    Let's hope you have better luck.

    I am nothing if not persistent. I'll make sure to tell him every time I notice the fault.
