    Just bought a Gitman Vintage poplin shirt from Need Supply. I really like it as a casual summer shirt, and a shirt to layer in the Fall/Winter. However, because it is poplin, it is more transparent, showing my v-neck undershirt. I sweat a lot so I have to wear one, plus I don't want to show nippage. My question- is it tacky to see the undershirt underneath. More specifically, is it bad to see the part of my arm wear the undershirt stops? When I look in the mirror, I see undershirt AND my lower arm which has no undershirt. The contrast is obvious. Is that a dumb worry for a casual shirt? In the summer I'd roll the sleeve anyway.
