How about a polo under the sweater instead?

I don't see that working for the most part, although I have worn a polo with a short collar under a zip-mock-neck sweater to good effect. Don't try to arrange the polo collar neatly, that will look geeky.

If you want a similar option, try something like the leisure shirts from AA, BR makes a good Pima version that goes on sale for like $30. I got two last year and they are much better than the AA ones. They work very well under a V-neck. I think for the most part a V-neck needs either nothing or a semi-structured collar sticking through.

PS: this is a good chance to wear a tie, if you never get the chance. Only the knot and a bit of tie will be showing and you don't need to button the top button. I've gotten lots of compliments on doing that.

PPS: this is my new favorite sweater, by "Comme Ca Ism" a Japanese brand I can't find much solid info on. It feels like merino wool, probably not ultra high quality but I like it a lot. Picked it up early this summer at a Spokane thrift store for $10 IIRC.

A fitted undershirt instead of a tee shirt would make visible bunching less likely. But tight pants with a tight sweater, if colorful and along with other factors, could lead to the "gay" impression that many guys fear.

Nice find man. Has a very APC feel.

Did a poster on a style forum seriously ask if wearing a sweater with jeans was okay? That's kinda like asking: tees and jeans, are they good as casual outfits?
