    I'm looking for better T-Shirts, probably V-Neck, to wear under my dress clothes at work. I'm buying really slim cut dress clothes so I would like some T-Shirts that aren't bulky or bunch up under my dress shirt. I want something very comfortable and although I want it slim fitting I don't want it skin tight. Anything like that out there?

    I really like the 2xist v-necks from their pima cotton collection. These are sold individually, not in 3 packs. They fit a bit slimmer compared to most brands and cost about $18 each.

    I'm interested too. I remember a post about low cut V-Necks from Amazon last year. Would be interested in the link again.

    Do you mean as an undershirt?
    I don't think undershirts look good under slim cut dress shirts.

    I really like ragman t-shirts for that purpose. They're very fitted and of a nice quality.

    How do these compare to Hanro? I have shirt creeping problems with mine.

    By most accounts they are nicer. I do not have creeping problems with them.

    Yes I do mean undershirts. I do agree with you that they don't look as good but I must say it looks much better than wet spots in the armpits [​IMG] (which would happen if I weren't wearing an undershirt). I think I can get the best of both worlds with a nice fitting undershirt that is also a V-Neck.

    I have Calvin Klein undershirts. I like them because Marty McFly wore them.

    I think he meant that v-neck undershirts don't look good under a dress shirt. I'm inclined to agree, unless your shirt is sufficiently opaque that there's no chance the "v" will show. And wear what you want, but assuming you'll be wearing a shirt and tie what's the point of the v-neck? IMHO, v-neck undershirts are only for wearing under an open-collar shirt, if then.

    Right. I'll be wearing an open-collar (button up) shirt.

    How about not buying really slim cut dress clothes that make you sweat? It's like going to the doctor and saying "It hurts when I do this, what can I do?" Answer: "Stop doing it."

    I'm guessing it's not the slim cut dress shirts per se that's causing him to sweat. He's probably just a sweaty monkey in general, therefore sweating profusely, whether it be in a boxy American cut dress shirt or a slim fit one. Might as well be a sharp looking profuse sweater. But I suppose he's trying to avoid that.

    I must agree that undershirts don't look very good when wearing a nice, somewhat see through, fashionable dress shirt to work, top button unbuttoned. Unfortunately (or not), I have a huge shoulder sleeve tattoo that is somewhat visible with over half my dress shirts, and I don't think that's going to fly well at the firm I'll be starting at later this year. So I guess I'll be one of those wearing that visible crew or v-neck undershirt as well [​IMG]

    Wear tighter weaves.
