What are the most comfortable, slim fitting T-Shirts out there?

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
(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.

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
