What do you think about the dress shirt over t shirt look

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

ive seen in many tv shows that for a casual look they use an open dress shirt over a t shirt (usually a blank t shirt) i wanted to know what people thought about it and if its a good look in your opinion?

 

a picture in case i didnt make myself clear:

I used to see this look quite a bit in the late 90's.  Maybe it's making a comeback.

Agreed. I wore this in the late 90's... when I was in high school.  Not so much since.

A shirt over an undershirt? Hmmm strange idea . If they'd wanted you to wear an undershirt under your shirt the name would have been clearer.

If it's done for warmth, I'd much prefer a waistcoat or a jumper

If you're going for the full twat look, embark on this stylistic journey. The 90s were easily one of the worst decades for style. At least the music was good.

The undershirt showing at the collar under an OCBD is still pretty standard business wear in the US no?

My girlfriend gets a kick out of seeing those photos. I can understand the desire for an undershirt, but why not a V that no one sees?
