Is it me or is the current v-neck t-shirt trend atrocious? - Page 3

post #31 of 50
I think this new trend of guy getting angry when other men choose to wear vaguely feminine clothing is dumb.

We should be equally angry about women wearing jeans. I want them in long dresses, corsets, hats, gloves, and stockings. God help us if they are showing off their wrist or ankle.

if the shirt is well fitted and not too deep cut, its not bad, but when they have such a deep v that the wearer looks like a cross-dresser, its weird. And for some reason when they fit too loosely it just looks kind of trashy.

Sorry for the ranting that started this thread.

I agree, it really depends on the person. Some guys really cannot pull off this look. Maybe where I am the look has reached a saturation point - unless you're James Dean or comparable in terms of proportions or looks, it doesn't work. But who am I to hate if someone wants to dress like this, right?

I guess to me it's too trendy and metrosexual a look but to many others of you on this forum it's either a classic or very now look that has not reached saturation in your area.

I mean, it's not hard to wear things that other people wear, but in a different(better?) way. I mean, half the people on campus here are wearing jeans, shoes and a tshirt, but i try to at least make it look better with fit and jeans that look a bit more interesting than the standard oversized predistressed jeans.

I think the problem lies in that you need a very specific body type for it not to look bad. If you are super super thin, and the V shows your poking sterum, it looks bad. If you are at all soft in the pecs, you'll look "booby", which looks very bad. If your pecs are built-up to any degree, you'll have cleavage in the V, and that looks bad too. Basically, you need definition under, but not on top of your pecs. It's a mericlessly hard to wear shirt, IMO.

I would think a v-neck should tone down muscular builds. With the physique I've developed I prefer v-neck shirts not just for the comfort around the neck, but also because they soften my build (not in a pudgy way).

Kind of like undoing the top button on a fine shirt they're just slightly relaxed but not sloppy and all the more comfortable.

You can't pay me enough to wear a V-Neck T-Shirt.
It looks fine on some others, but it's definitely not for me.

I wear it (v-neck) on hot days with jeans when it's ok to be very casual. I have pretty big traps, chest and wide shoulders, and I agree that it helps soften the shape of my upper body. edit: because of the below post, I guess I should note that I do wear a Buddha pendant which I think pulls some of the focus away from my musclebreasts to the pendant.

this is quite possibly the most perfect explanation of the hit or miss quality of v-necks. i for one love the look, and especially when one can pull it off disheveled and slouchy looking

here are some examples of what i think constitutes successful attempts of wearing v-necks (and maybe a henley v-neck thrown in there too) . . .



braidkid does it well too

i think a necklace with some kind of catchy pendant whether it be a coin or bullet etc, helps the look out too also. it makes it look slightly less like 'look at my bare chest; i'm wearing a v-neck shirt' and more complete and 'hey look, cool necklace, cool shirt, cool pants - nice ensemble . . .'

i also tend to like them wider at the top and with the deepness of AA's regular v.

^^Now that next to the last guy with the green on IS atrocious, I can see why someone would think that looks awful, but I do like the rest.

I think almost anyone could wear this look, it's not a very deep V.

anyone can wear anything when they're standing arround surrounded by signs telling them "you're beautiful!"

. . . haha that's funny i actually like the guy in the green shorts and the deep v the most. it looks the most effortless and like he wears them all the time imho.

the one knucks likes is a backstage pic from a fashion show which probably explains the 'you're beautiful!'

I think there's just a bit of confusion here as to what constitutes a "V" neck. Personally, I've always preferred a shallow v-neck to a crew. I'm talking a normal cut around the sides and back with a slight "V". I'm pretty built and don't have a really long neck, so it works well for me and adds the illusion of height, too. I definitely think a super deep V on a 6', 130 lb bone rack, who looks like he hasn't been in the sun in years and has a small forest poking out of it would be horrid. Some of the above pics are pretty bad, but the one with the guy and the hat guy is fine.
