    I know...
    It's become rather like... "I wear Y-fronts, so everyone else must wear Y-fronts, Anyone who wears boxers or briefs is an uncouth evil smelly bastard!!!"

    I've only been a contributing member for a short period of time, but in that time I have already learned that Pebblegrain is the biggest d*ck on this forum. I've never met a more condescending phallus in all my life, but if his avatar picture is him, then I believe his atrocious ego is a compensation for his obvious diminuitive stature. Unusual shortness in men apparently has the same effect as it does in small dogs. You know...the yippy ones you want to kick the shit out of when they won't stop barking. Just sayin'...

    I wear an undershirts because I damn well feel like it.
    and that's enough reason to justify wearing one.

    Usually, I'll wear one with a dress shirt or any sort of long-sleeve, but generally not with polo shirts. I think they are to be worn how t-shirts are worn; in other words, you wouldn't wear a t-shirt underneath a t-shirt.

    If pebblegrain is the biggest d*ck on this forum, as far as you're concerned, you haven't been on this forum long enough...

    I don't wear undershirts. I am very heat-sensitive, but don't sweat a lot -- so I feel that it's an unnecessary layer.

    And I like mufuckuz looking at my nip-nips.

    I don't think there is a right vs wrong... it could be for comfort (physical or psychological), hygiene, personal preference. Personally, I sometimes do and I sometimes don't. Though my primary reason for wearing them is to add an extra layer for warmth when a sweater over my shirt isn't quite enough. I get cold easily.

    I think as long as we all agree that they should never ever show, then we are all on the same page.

    This is like arguing between briefs or boxers... its a really personal choice that has makes no aesthetic difference imo (unless it peaks out or is really obvious under your shirt)

    Well, since someone decided to dig up this old thread, I will finally reveal the truth to all of you.

    When wearing a suit to multiple events on a fall or winter evening, always wear an undershirt, or silk long johns as necessary.

    It allows you to comfortably forego a topcoat. And as such, people always assume your limo is nearby, and you can make a quick exit.

    I like to wear one of those funky bod underwear shirts as it has discreet padding making my chest and arms look bigger. Its a great transformation, just wandering if anyone else has tried one??

    Yes. Skid marks and absorbent cotton layer. They are my litter box liner.

    I have an impressive amount of chest hair and I don't like to button my top button as I rarely wear ties. I figure wearing an undershirt is the least questionable way to avoid people getting tangled in my chest hair if they get too close.

    I wear an undershirt because I have a tattoo on my shoulder that bleeds through some of my dress shirts. An undershirt solves the problem.

    ps - Tat removal is ongoing.

    ...no undershirt for me. When a lady's unbuttoning/lifting my shirt, it would lose the affect if there was an undershirt underneath, lol....Some guys don't have to worry about that though.
