Maybe this is just a coincidence, or due to the onset of colder weather, but I’ve recently received emails from several readers in search of mock neck t-shirts (undershirts).
The readers were specifically wondering where they could find the Jockey Mock Neck T-Shirts.
Here’s one of the emails I received:
Nearly 2 years year ago in Dec of 2010 I bought these Jockey short sleeve mock t-shirts after I emailed you.
You showed me them and I loved em, I knew someday they’d be discontinued as I read on a post asking why all the good shirts get disconnected.
Would you have any suggestions on cheap undershirts like that with a mock elastic neck?
T-Shirt vs Undershirt
Before we get to my response, just wanted to quickly clarify something so I don’t go too crazy.
The term “T-Shirt” is used a whole bunch to describe undershirt offerings.
I still don’t exactly know why manufacturers label lightweight tees that are designed to be worn as a base layer as t-shirts, but they do.
I suppose they would say that they are labeled that way because they can be worn as undershirts or t-shirts, but personally I think it’s just too damn confusing.
Let me decide if I want to wear my undershirt as a tee shirt, but just call it an undershirt for goodness sake.

Where To Get Mock Neck T-Shirts (Undershirts)
Here’s my reply to the above reader:
Well, I don’t officially know of any other short sleeve mock t-shirts.
But I did a little research and came across these:
Tru Spec CORDURA Baselayer Short Sleeve Mock T Shirt ($17+)
Colorado Timberline Dillion Microfiber Mock T-shirt (select white color and your size) ($15 – $27)
More Info: amazon.com
X-Fire Baselayer Mock Neck Short Sleeve Shirt ($21.95, but kinda looks like the Tru Spec above)
More Info: harrysarmysurplus.net
Sleeveless Mock ($37)
More Info: bottomline2000.com
Men’s River’s End SOLAR Shield Pique Short-sleeve Stretch Mock T-Neck ($17.99 – $22.49)
Not sure any will match up to the jockey short sleeve mock neck tee that you loved so much, though, but I’d say the above items are worth a try at least.
Don’t know how long any of those will be available, so you might want to snatch some up pretty quickly and see if you like them.
I wanna know what you buy and what you think of each one you try.
So keep me posted, ok??
I eventually heard back from the reader above and he said that he decided to order the Colorado Timberline Dillon Microfiber Mock Tee-Shirt.
Hopefully I’ll hear back from him after he has a chance to give his new mock neck undershirt a try.
