    a white T-shirt under a dress shirt is just ringard (sorry I can't find the perfect translation of this French word). not only with an open collar by the way. seeing the short sleeves in transparence is just awful

    knickers were thrown at him partially because of the carpet chest [​IMG] and what better way to emphasize the chest than with oversized jewelry [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Yea Baby! Swinger!

    Your Preference:
    1. Full hair, no trimming, all macho natural
    2. Trimmed.groomed
    3. shaven
    4. Crew Neck T Shirt



    Chest hair should be shaved regularlly for open neck shirts - an appalling sight.

    What's wrong with this on an informal occasion?

    I always wear a T-shirt under a dress shirt. Crew neck if wearing a tie and a V-neck if shirt is left open at the collar.

    The sight of the T-shirt under a dress shirt may be offensive to some, but I much prefer this to having to look at sweat stains soaking through.

    I much prefer to see a man wear a shirt without the visual intrusion of a t-shirt.

    Something about this statement strikes me as very...disturbing.

    Most men with a decent deodorant do not have to pick between these two evils. I never wear a T-shirt under my shirts and I don't have sweat stains either

    That's highly anecdotal. It hardly proves that "most men with a decent deodorant do not have to pick between these two evils." In fact, there are a lot of men that, with or without a decent deodorant, will continue to sweat.

    For example, my back starts to sweat on hot days when I'm sitting with it against a chair (e.g., in the car, even when the air conditioner is on, which cools in the front, my back still sweats). Am I supposed to rub deodorant on my back? I think wearing a t-shirt is much easier and looks better than having a sweat stain in the middle of my back.

    This is a silly discussion. If you feel that you need a t-shirt or that it looks better on you for whatever reason, then wear it. If you feel that you don't need one, then don't wear it.

    Deoderant does nothing to reduce either perspiration or its staining effect on shirts. In fact, the active ingredients in antiperspirants (which may reduce but rarely eliminate perspiration) often exacerbate underarm stains in shirts.

    You could wrap your torso in transparent cling-wrap, thereby eliminating both the "sweat stains" issue and the "visually intruding" t-shirt issue.

    Yes - this is my recommendation as well [​IMG]

    Good idea, then dandySF can get some viewing pleasure out of seeing my bare chest.
