It can't be only me.

Has anyone noticed how more and more men are not wearing an undershirt under their dress shirts? I cannot be the only woman grossed out by this. I feel like seeing the hue of a man's skin through his dress shirt is the equivalent of panty lines on a woman: unsightly and totally unnecessary. Maybe, this year, in lieu of a Christmas baked good I will get my male co-workers an undershirt, thus giving a gift and solving the problem all in one benevolent gesture.

Jeni!! You are hysterical!! I saw that you had been looking on my blog and I didn't know who it was until I looked you up! I was so happy to see you- in one form or another! :] How are you?? You'll have to leave comments on my boring blog- after reading yours, I strive to have more shopping experiences and lime trees. :] By the way, love your cat's name... it's my new last name! :]

I agree with you. I used to be one of those guys who never wore an undershirt. But, things change. For the last two months, I've been a daily undershirt wearer - Sears protocol t shirt style undershirt. Wonderful fit - snug, but not too snug. Cotton, unbelievably soft. Available in white, black and grey. I have some of each - white being the staple but black and grey being nice for under more casual shirts.

If guys who don't wear undershirts only knew all the advantages...

But, part is finding a brand and style that fits you and feels good on...

I agree, men should always wear an undershirt. When I married my husband, I told him in no uncertain terms that he was to always wear an undershirt. I think women need to speak up and tell the men in their life - psst, you'd look better wearing an undershirt.
