Would you STFU now please

Yes for work. In casual situations I don't *need* one. I'm sure some guys can pull it off w/o one, but to suggest people are slovenly because of it is a little out there. Some guys would be doing the people around them a huge disservice going around without one.

For the winter or when it is cold, I will throw on a well-fitted undershirt for the extra warmth, which to be, makes a difference.

I would suggest BR v-necks that fit TTS or Uniqlo heattechs S/S v-necks.

But this really depends also on the shirt I will be wearing. Some shirts are more fitted and so even if I wanted to wear an undershirt, I would not work. Now I don't know if people get MTM to account for an undershirt, stretch or shrink, or other misc. variables, I think it would take a lot of experience and time to fine tune and personally, it is a lot of trouble I think.

The usual is that if I am suited up, wearing a MTM shirt most likely, I will not be wearing an undershirt. If it is daily on-the-go office attire, I'll wear a slightly roomier OCBD with a v-neck underneath more often than not, especially if it is chilly.

So instead of thinking about all the variables of the actual clothes, limit it to the actual environment you will be in, which I will restate: weather conditions/temperature or suiting up vs. daily office wear

Edit:
And I will rarely wear a crew neck unless the shirt collar is high enough or does not droop to not show. Now if I was dressing up casually (going to the city for something recreational), then I wouldn't care either way. Venture into the SW&D and see it done proper via tween

I used to wear a vest when I was going to school up to age 17, and then in the military.

I stopped wearing them in 82 when I left the military. That said vests in the UK are sleeveless.

I live in Sweden where the winters are real & I don't know anyone who wears a vest under their office shirt.

It just isn't done here or in London from what I remember about it.

I really don't see the point. If I'm going to be cold in my shirt, tie and jacket or a suit, I just put a jumper on as well, and if necessary an overcoat.

If I am cold, I will wear a waistcoat or sweater vest (and of course a decent overcoat when outside). 


Exactly right on all points sir!

Working with sex offenders, I don't want them to see my nips or chest hair. Wondering how many are masturbating thinking about me is bad enough!?

I do not wear a tie as they can be used against me, so I wear colored undershirts that fit within the color scheme of my outfit.

Save your energy. When you're a borderline autistic pedant whose sole source of self worth is telling other people they're black-and-white "wrong" about subjective clothing choices nobody else will ever even be aware of, I don't think the date really enters the equation.

Any contradiction of your arrogant, ridiculous assertions is a contribution.

Dude, I am wondering how this tread is still going. It's underwear. Some men have perfectly good reasons to wear an undershirt. Others do not. Of all the things to hold really strong opinions about what others are doing I am slightly amazed this is getting so much attention and passion. In some other thread, men are talking about buttoning dinner jackets for God's sake and no one really seems fazed. Of course, we also live in a world where people with ostensibly good breeding and proper education call a neat vodka a Martini.

I despair. We live in the end times.
