During the non-summer months, my undershirt style of choice is the deep v-neck undershirt.
Most of the time I’m wearing a collared casual shirt, where I leave the top one or two buttons undone. Even though I’m not a hairy guy (thanks Mom & Dad!), I still manscape to keep the chest hair trim, and so any exposed hair is fairly minimal.
For more information about manscaping & the best grooming tips, check out these grooming-related articles.
I generally like a deeper v-neck undershirt so it doesn’t show, or shows very little. Stylistically, this is my preference and certainly one shared by many fashion conscious people. Most stylists or fashion consultants would agree that your undershirt should not show.
Now I’m not telling those who wear crew neck undershirt that you’re doing it wrong, because I’m a big believer in individuality and personal preference.
I’m just saying that’s what I do.
So I’m glad that this reader wrote in with his question about deep v-neck undershirts because now I get to have a central place here on the site that identifies these types of undershirts!
Love your site.
I was hoping you could recommend 2 or 3 high quality brands that have pretty deep v-neck undershirts.
I’ve looked around and many seem to have a minimal drop in the v-neck cut.
