As for undershirts, I wear A-shirts or 'wife-beaters' if you want to call them that. I have for as long as I can remember and so have all the men in my family. I find then useful in covering chest hair esp. when wearing a white dress shirt. I also like them because they don't bind under my arms - which is why I hate T-shirts. The GF doesn't like them and frequently says so. Always reminding me they are called 'wife-beaters' for a reason and are very lower class. Well here we disagree - I think they have been around a long time. So here's my question: Do A-shirts (or wife-beaters) really send a message to others what class you are from? I don't see the big deal - as they are just undershirts to me, but do they really send this message? Thanks for any advice.
