I wear an undershirt because I have a tattoo on my shoulder that bleeds through some of my dress shirts.  An undershirt solves the problem.  

 

ps - Tat removal is ongoing.

I do. Mainly to conceal my tattoos at my office job.

...no undershirt for me. When a lady's unbuttoning/lifting my shirt, it would lose the affect if there was an undershirt underneath, lol....Some guys don't have to worry about that though.

The poll here shows the majority of SFers wear undershirts, myself included.

 

If I'm wearing a white dress shirt in the summertime I may or may not wear a crew neck shirt underneath. In the wintertime I usually wear a crew neck for the warmth underneath a white shirt. If I'm wearing any other color I will usually wear a wife beater throughout the entire year. Where I work, the summer days can hit 110. Just going outside a short time for lunch walking around in wool pants will cause me to sweat. The undershirt absorbs the sweat so it doesn't look like your dress shirt has patches of moisture all over. Also since I wear a deodorant/anti-perspirant, the crew neck undershirts will eventually get yellow stains on them. It's better for the undershirt to take this beating than your dress shirt.

I'm really skinny and have taken to wearing the Funkybod undershirt which fills you out and makes for a more manly appearance. See www.funkybod.com to see what I mean.  The other thing it does is to stop armpit sweat from ruining my expensive shirts.  All the guys in my office wear an undershirt of some sort.  I started wearing one because one of the guys in the office was wearing it to hide his manboobs which he talks openly about.  When you see someone in a formal shirt without an undershirt the look is not as good in my opinion, looks cleaner with an undershirt on, especially when wearing a white shirt.

It was my lame attempt at humour. I actually own wool undershirts, purchased in Italy
and feel almost like silk. They are for cross country skiing and other cold weather pursuits.

I've been researching this very question at the Institute of Advanced Studies in Princeton, and have supplemented my work with consulting the I Ching and the Delphic Oracle during a recent trip to Greece. What I have found is that it is best to wear an undershirt when the weather is cold, but not when it is warm or hot. Hanro is the best mass-produced brand of undershirt, because the quality is still good (although not great) and it sticks close to your body without containing the strange, compression properties of Spanx or other low-brow brands.

Yes. 1) Makes the dress shirt fit "smoother" and 2) prevent potential underarm sweat stains in the dress shirt.

 

Have you seen those dark sweat spots when someone raises his arms?  Nasty.

I do not.

But, like you, nearly all of my coworkers do as well.

No undershirt for me. The extra layer is just inconvenient and I don't tend to sweat all that much.

Jokes aside, I was doing very hard physical labor for work not long ago, wearing 2 t's was the best combination of clothing I could fathom during that time. Besides, look at that guy. Such a flippin' player.
