I do on occasion depending on what I'm wearing. I wear V-necks not crew.

I usually always wear an undershirt beneath my button-downs.

are there different type of undershirts as in how thin the fabric is? or do you guys just use regular hanes?

In terms of what to buy, Target's Merona brand is excellent. Get the stretch version of the crew/normal version if you can. (Vnecks are better for dress shirts, but they do not make a stretch vneck.) They are much softer and more durable than Hanes.

I always wear undershirts.
When I discovered cheap 2(x)ist undershirts at TJ Maxx, Marshall's, Ross, etc... I haven't really worn any other brand since.
They are thin but can take the abuse of being worn and washed on a weekly basis.
It is also fit just right, not too lose, not too tight.
Some might feel it is too short to stay tucked in when worn with a dress shirt but I do fine with it.

Yes. I tend to wear it so the shirt doesn't get dirty and you don't have to wash it after every wear... but always a v neck.

I never have because I find they show through most of my shirts and I don't like the way it looks.

Always. I just don't like wearing a dress shirt without one. Generally, speaking, I never like wearing a button up shirt without one. Or a polo, for that matter.

Yeah. If I'm buttoning all but the top button, I'll wear a v-neck. However, if I have 2+ buttons unbuttoned, I usually do a crew neck.

I wear a v-neck underneath the shirts I wear to work but when I go out I generally just wear a weifebeater underneath. I will occasionally wear a v-neck under shirts when I go out but I generally leave a few buttons on the shirt unbuttoned so you can see the v neck.
