Here’s a fun style-related question from a reader and wearer of crew neck sweaters:
When I wear my crew neck undershirt under a particular crew neck sweater the undershirt is exposed at the neck.
Does this mean my sweater has too large of a neck hole, or my undershirt has too small of a neck hole, or is it acceptable for the undershirt to be showing?
Undershirts Under Crew Neck Sweaters
good to hear from you and a great question indeed!
to be really honest, i don’t think it means either of those two, but it does present a bit of a styling quandary.
my recommendations would be as follows:
- if you’re going for a layered look, i’d suggest finding a colored crew neck undershirt (or lightweight t-shirt) that would blend/contrast/match well with your crew neck sweater. a stark white undershirt can only look matching under certain colored sweaters
- if you’re going for the clean, unlayered look , you’ll need an undershirt (or lightweight t-shirt) that has a larger neck opening that won’t show at all. a good direction here is either a scoop neck undershirt like the ones from collected threads, or possibly go for something like ryan gosling wore in “only god forgives” which was a wide-neck undershirt/t-shirt
- if you really aren’t concerned about a little undershirt showing or if your white undershirt actually looks good stylistically under your crew neck sweater, then don’t change a thing.
hope that information helps buddy. let me know if you have other questions and keep me posted on what you wind up doing! sound good?
