    well, i'll go down the rabbit hole... super curious, how many folks here wear undershirts with a dress shirt?

    Undershirts are a must. I might never wear socks with my loafers. But, I am definitely going to be wearing an undershirt beneath my dress shirts.

    Airism v-necks. Best $100 I spent recently was throwing away all my cotton t-shirts and replacing them with 14 Airism Ts.

    I don't but I don't have to. Whether it's the middle of December or the Middle of August, it's between 70-85 and sunny, so just the dress shirt will do, no worrying about perspiration. But for the entire rest of the country they could be necessities, at least in some parts for sure, the South in the Summer to be specific.

    THIS.

    I despise wearing undershirts, but I bought a couple of these in tan (blends in well with my skin tone) for when I absolutely must use them.

    I've never heard of these, but it looks like they are a poly/spandex blend. The undershirts I wear with dress shirts are cotton, as it controls body odor much better than synthetics. Some synthetics claim to be anti-microbial, but I'm not sure how well those work. I wear Ribbed Tee brand.

    I know I'm SUPPOSED to wear an undershirt with Dress Shirts. But, I just can't stand it in the summer here in Kansas. I wear an undershirt in the winter. But, in the Kansas heat, I don't. Maybe I should be. But, I don't get pit stains on my shirts in the summer.

    I did sweat so much during my first trial (mostly nerves) that I sweated through an undershirt, my dress shirt and even had salty sweat stains on the outside of my suit. It was nasty.
