Eastern (USA) establishment?

They should be told to wear one or the other but not both.

Patch pockets are useful in distinguishing sportcoats from orphaned suit jackets, and many SF regulars prefer them outright.  I do think that patch pockets suit unstructured or minimally structured jackets better than flaps do, and since many here prefer that style to more structured jackets, it makes sense that we'd see more preference for patch than flap. 

 

I'm strictly neutral and have equal numbers of flap and patch pocket SCs.

No reason you can't. That's what v necks are for.

Doesn't it just defeat the purpose of wearing a polo (or any shortsleeve shirt) in the first place? I mean if it's warm enough for short sleeves why wear double the fabric?
I know of the "to soak up the sweat" argument but anti-perspirent was invented quite some time ago now.
Perhaps it's just a US thing that I'll never understand.

Plenty of people still sweat with anti-perspirant on....and you can put that stuff on your lower back. I don't wear one all the time, but I get why guys feel the need for them. Pretty sure this conversation gets started every year or so.....

No reason you can't but plenty of reasons you shouldn't.

I can't think of a single one....but it's Friday night and debating about undershirts is pretty silly. You win.

Is it OK to wear undershirt over the polo shirt?

As someone blessed to not be a heavy (or overly stinky) sweater, I would 100% advocate an undershirt beneath a polo before saying wear anti-perspirant.

Anti-sweat deodorant = yellow pits from my experience.
