What do you wear under your dress shirts? T-shirts? Tanks? - Page 2

I mean we all sweat, whether as a result of summer heat or stressful situations, no? Maybe it's just me; maybe I'm just a freakin' animal.

Stains are largely a function of the the additives found in most deodorants. Look for an aluminum free product. Also, shirts should be laundered after each use.

It seems I answer this topic weekly. I like U-neck tees, Urban Outiftter's house brand BDG makes solid ones. B. Son does too, but they're pricier.

T-shirts in cold weather, IDJs in warm weather. A guy's chest/back hair making dark patches under his light color poplin shirts is not a great look. Unless you want to keep your jacket on in the office as Tarmac seems to suggest, wear an undershirt.

Where does one obtain a non-white (greyish) . . . quality v-neck undershirt ? . . . or even white - quality - v-neck undershirt. I am in SoCal OC . . .

I have since gone to undershirts, but I haven't found the right one. I have a couple Calvin Klein that are great because they are very light and thin, and don't cause my dress shirt to fit differently. The thinness/lightness doesn't make me any warmer, as would a thicker shirt. BUT, they are discontinued!

Just looking for people's approach, and if anyone knows of a suitable replacement to my beloved, and discontinued, CK Pima undershirts.

Later,

Tony

In an effort to try and eliminate as much material as possible, I have found this T-shirt to be as good as advertised: http://www.tommyjohnwear.com/Crew-Ne...cked-P217.aspx. Bought my first as a "test case" and find myself slowly shifting to wanting to replace my regular T-shirts with more of these. Very form fitting - normally I hate form fitting clothing but these are O.K. Also, like the fact the shirt dries quickly.

It's a choice, indeed.

During cooler weather or winter I'll wear a v-neck undershirt. My body frame borders on Meduim to Large so I always go medium for a snug fit. I also now shave my armpits after having read some people here recommending it. I use a lot less anti-perspirant now too.

OMG! Seriously?

hated undershirts until I found Zimmerli... expensive but worth it. material actually helps my dress shirts not wrinkle as much and I can get an extra wear or two out of them before cleaning. low neck never shows under collars.

and good old fashioned old spice has never left a stain...

You mean shave-shave . . . or crop to some extent ? Yikes. Why would a man voluntarily endure what God (Old Test) his-self has ordained as part of the standard pennance-package for having chosen to be born a woman ? . . . I mean, I'm ok with it and all, . . . cause its a personal choice and everything . . . I have seen guys at Starbucks before that appear to have shaved their legs . . .

V-neck T's, the thinnest ones possible. 100% cotton.

I'm wondering that too about the shaved pits. I have heard a few times about shaving under the arms on StyleForum, but I am not sure if this means completely shave bald or just trim. I wouldn't mind trimming if it helps reduce the sweat and smell issues, but I don't think I can be bald under there. I am a man after all.
