    Hey there! And thanks for any help in advance. I have my days where I sweat more than others - oftentimes it isn't weather dependent. To avoid to the chances of pit stains on my dress shirt, I always wear an undershirt.

    However, they always come untucked. Does anybody have some recommendations for affordable undershirts that stay tucked?

    I tuck my undershirt into the waistband of my boxer briefs. It stays put.

    Never thought I'd see the day that I would recommend shopping at Sears on Styleforum, but these work well for me.

    Are you very tall? Wearing a shirt under a shirt will just make you sweat more and you'll sweat right through the uindershirt and on to the shirt. Undershirts are snug fitting and air doesn't circulate so it's better not wearing one. Just spray the shirt's underarms with a diluted detergent before washing and you won't get sweat atains.

    No, I'm average height. In my experience, I have faired better with an undershirt, although I've never worn a very tight one.

    As a person who perspires quite easily and sometimes profusely, I can tell you that t-shirts are a necessity to avoid the darkened armpit look. Year round.

    Some people will sweat regardless of what layers they're wearing. For those people, t-shirts are a necessity.

    Try the hi tech undershirts that wick the moisture. They are actually cooler than no undershirt at all.

    They need to be snug in order to work well - this also makes them less likely to move around much.

    Ribbed Tee's. They're about 30" long and never untuck (in my experience).

    Get the ones that snap between the legs. Which side you hang your balls on is entirely up to you.

    The Kirkland brand undershirts from Costo work well for me. They stay tucked and fit trim.
