visible undershirt is the ugliest thing ever, right there with squared toe shoes

I am the opposite.  I counter-intuitively wear an undershirt on hot days because i sweat like a bastard and i prefer not to have it show through my dress shirt.

At the end of the day, it's a matter of preference and climate. Personally, I avoid undershirt whereever possible, and so do many elegant gentlemen including G. Bruce Boyer

Exactly, it's a matter of personal preference and climate. Therefore, who cares what anyone, including G. Bruce Boyer, says?

I'm fairly skinny so when the cold weather kicks in I wear a funky bod undershirt cause its very discreet and at the same time it adds muscle size as it has integrated chest and arm muscle padding.

Lived abroad for 15 years and slowly got over my American conditioning of wearing undershirts. Women outside of the US do not find them sexy ... just the opposite and I was told so. Now that I am back here I noticed all the undershirts: I see them under dress shirts with an open collar, under polo shirts and even under T-shirts. What is up with that? Does it look *gay* not to wear one and expose one's chest just a little? Well, I see gay men wearing undershirts all the time. I think it comes down to this: in other parts of the world a well-dressed man is just that - a well-dressed man. Only in the States would a well-dressed man be thought of as gay ...

Why would anyone think an undershirt was sexxy? I don't think anyone here in the US does. I only wear v-neck undershirts and you can usually only see them through my dress shirts if they are thin. I wear them out of utility rather than them being fashionable.

i remember at my previous job, some of the finer looking women told me that they didnt mind the undershirt peeking from underneath. instead, some even thought it was a nice contrast. I was gone from that job the following month

Who makes the best undershirts?

- Cost no object / any price

- Light grey / don't show under the shirt

- High quality

- V neck i.e I want to open the top button on my shirt and the undershirt should not be visible
