Looking for skin colored long sleeve undershirts to wear under your scrubs? Here are my top recommendations.
Here’s a question that inspired this article:
Do you know any long sleeve undershirts with a flesh tone range?
I have tattoos on my arms, and instead of wearing a white, black, or other color long sleeve undershirt, I thought a skin tone undershirt would conceal them better.
I found some skin colored undershirts on your site, but none of them were long sleeve.
Can you help?
Long Sleeve Undershirts for Scrubs
Good to hear from you buddy and thanks for your question!
There are plenty of brands making long sleeve undershirts for scrubs, or rather, to wear under your scrubs. However, I could not find any that offer flesh toned (tan, brown, beige, nude).
That said, there are a couple of underwear brands making nude/tan colored undershirts, offered in a long sleeve option.
ALBERT KREUZ underwear
I mentioned this brand many years ago, slightly poking fun at their use of the term invisible undershirt.
My position on flesh-tone men’s undershirts has changed over the years. Initially, I recommended wearing heather grey or light grey undershirts instead of skin tone colored undershirts.
Although I still prefer to wear light or heather grey undershirts moreso than tan undershirts, if I wear a white dress shirt that has some transparency to it, I will wear a tan undershirt.
Albert Kruez offers a nude/skin color long sleeve undershirt called Hamburg.

Unbranded on eBay
A seller on eBay is selling this beige long sleeve undershirt, made from a blend of polyamide (nylon) & spandex.
L’Homme Invisible Long Sleeve Undershirt
L’Homme Invisible also offers a nude long sleeve men’s undershirt, as part of their skin color invisible underwear collection.

Check out Aliexpress for long sleeve undershirts. When searching, use terms like “skin color”, nude, beige, etc.
I found a brand called MANVIEW that used to sell a product called Ultrathin transparent Polymide Sexy Men’s Long Sleeve Undershirt. They offered that product in multiple colors, including a color they called “skin”.
Start your search fairly broad, such as: mens long sleeve undershirt. Then filter your search down from there.

Here are two hacks that would give you the same look.
Nude/Tan Arm Sleeves
Depending on your particular use-case, these body colored arm sleeves may work for you.
Just wear them on your arms with your favorite under-scrub undershirt, and it will look like you’re wearing a skin colored undershirt.
Dye Your Long Sleeve Undershirt Body Color
Find an undershirt in a dye-friendly fabric (cotton, nylon, viscose/rayon/bamboo) and dye it yourself at home.
