Here’s a press release about a guy in Germany who supposedly invented the “invisible” undershirt.
Albert Kreuz launched his underwear line, designed for businessmen, back in 2008 when he was not satisfied with what the market had to offer.
His german-based undershirt line focuses on addressing some of the biggest issues with standard undershirts (coming untucked, bunching, too tight, to thick), similar to what Tommy John and RibbedTee have done here in the states.
But Kruez also wanted to address the issue of being able to see the undershirt through light-colored dress shirts.
His “invisible” undershirts are simply those that are nude-colored, instead of the typical white.
Personally speaking, nude/skin-colored undershirts remind me of women’s pantyhose and I just wouldn’t feel very comfortable wearing one, even in front of Mrs. Tug.
Call me vein, but wearing a nude colored anything just doesn’t seem very manly.
In fact, I’d rather be caught wearing a slimming/compression undershirt than a nude one.
I don’t doubt that Kruez’s invisible undershirt line fits, feels, and functions better than standard undershirt, but I just don’t see the need to wear a skin-colored undershirt.
If I get really concerned about my undershirt showing through, I’ll wear one of my heather grey undershirts instead.
