One member asked if they could see an example of how a grey undershirt would be less visible than a white undershirt.
I knew I had come across some pictures that demonstrated it. So I figured these pictures were worth a thousand words.
Before I get to that, however, I wanted to point out that “Undershirt Invisibility” comes in two forms:
1. Deeper/Wider Collar Openings
Undershirts with deeper and wider collar openings so the undershirt collar is not visible when you undo the top one or two buttons of your outer shirt.
2. Neutral Colored Undershirts
Undershirts made in neutral colors.
Colors include: heather grey, light grey, tan/nude, or skin-tone.
These colors are less visible through lighter colored outer shirts.
Wearing Neutral Color Undershirts Under Light Colored Shirts
For clarity, we’re talking about #2 in this article.
More specifically, we’re talking about it in the context of wearing lighter colored dress or outer shirts only.
If you wear neutral or darker-colored outer shirts, you don’t have to worry about it really.
Keep in mind that this is also about personal preference.
I’m not too terribly worried about the lines of my undershirts showing through somewhat.
But then again, I don’t wear light colored long sleeve dress shirts all that often either.
If I were forced to dress up and wear a light-colored long sleeve dress shirt, I would probably care a bunch more.
THANKFULLY, I don’t have to do either.
Most days, during the day I sit comfortably in my short sleeve button up and jeans. In the evening, my preference is cargo shorts and t-shirt.
I have pretty much every color undershirt known to man (a slight exaggeration).
If I didn’t want the outlines of my undershirt to show through, for instance, I’d likely wear a heather grey undershirt under a light colored shirts .
