Yea Baby! Swinger!

2. Trimmed.groomed
3. shaven
4. Crew Neck T Shirt

The crew neck t-shirt under a dress shirt smacks of fussy and provincial tidiness. I much prefer to see a man wear a shirt without the visual intrusion of a t-shirt. I'm not sure whether I dislike more the people who wear the t-shirt or the t-shirt itself.

I have also seen people wear a white tee-shirt underneath a polo shirt.

I never wear an undershirt, unless it's under a wool sweater or something, but definitely not with a dress shirt or polo.

I trim my chest hair and also have started to get a decent natural tan from hanging outside a lot, so both of those things help.

Well, in hot sweltering climates, especially in the tropics, an undershirt is a must to absorb any excreted bodily fluids. So I have always stuck with deep v-neck undershirts for dress shirts/polos.

Peak Lapels! Hacking pockets! Ticket pocket! Chest Hair! Good times!

From Vice Magazine's "DOs":
When hairy bald guys do that thing where they grow a goatee, shave their heads, and then put sunglasses on top of them to simulate bangs it makes them look ashamed of themselves. When guys do the exact opposite of all those things it makes you proud to be a dude.

Full hair, no trimming except maybe the eyebrows so I don't look like andy rooney from 60 minutes. Chest-back-shoulders everywhere.

Don't you love it when you see a guy with beautiful shirt on without a tie and his exposed undershirt looks as though it's twenty years old.

I also find it more comfortable with many shirts.
Yes, I suppose it may have an element of fussiness about it, but don't many sartorial choices? I feel reasonably comfortable that nobody who has met me would ever think to describe me as "frat-boy chic" or "provincial" (and both my wife and my secretary would roll on the floor laughing at any attempt to use the word "tidiness" in reference to me).
I rarely wear polo shirts, but can't imagine wear a t-shirt under a polo.

I hear you. I find the idea of wearing a dress shirt without an undershirt vaguely vulgar, though I usually wear vnecks. To each his own, though.

The white T-shirt is the new black suit.
