Can a white T-shirt be amazing?
on August 10, 2013
So at the very least I wear a T-Shirt 5 days a week. I have to wear them under every dress shirt I wear, to protect the dress shirt. At that point it's not longer clothing, it's gear. I rely on the shirt to protect the dress shirt and to be a comfortable fit as well. You would think that something as simple as a T-shirt wouldn't be that difficult to get right, however the others don't measure up. The material is just the right thickness. Not too thin to where as soon as you start to sweat you can see it. but still comfortable underneath a dress shirt on a hot day. The fit is snug. Not overly tight but there is a bit if compression. Why is this important? It helps to more efficiently wick water and keep you dry. Also, if you have a torso that doesn't look like Jabba the hut, frankly, you just look better. If you don't like this look, go with Hanes. They fit like they were designed to be worn by a milk crate. Very baggy, and boxy, to short and too thin.
Length, another issue with many shirts that you would think would be easy to get right. Chances are you have to tuck the shirt in. Even if you don't, you probably want something that goes a little below the waist line. Some shirts (Hanes) don't even do that. This makes them virtually impossible to tuck in. Extremely uncomfortable when worn underneath a shirt. You don't want them too long either. I've had some that nearly go down to my knees. Jockey got this one right.
Finally the V-neck. Why would you get anything else? If you are only getting the shirt to wear as a sole shirt then I guess a crew neck is OK, Otherwise these are perfect for wearing under a dress shirt. If there is a better T-Shirt out there, I have yet to find it.
