Real gentleman always wear fresh undergarments. This is universally understood. Tragically, however, if it isn’t the numerous bodily horrors that hurt their style, it’s the total lack of comfort.
For most men things like damp underarm pits, sweat stains, odor, perky nipples, and exposed chest hair are a mainstay in their sartorial life.
Of course, a quality undershirt is the simple cure. Hence why men wear them.
Yet, in reality it’s really tough to find a go-to undershirt that not only feels as great as it looks, but also lasts.
How many times have you pulled a t-shirt out of the dryer only to discover it now features the dreaded bacon neck? Have you ever put on a tee that was so razor thin, you began to wonder why they didn’t just label it transparent to begin with? Not to mention, the low-quality stitch work, scratchy tag and itchy fabric, etc. all make for considerable annoyances.
With that in mind, I’d like to help you revamp your undershirt collection. Below you’ll find the top 14 best undershirts for men, including both v-neck and crew-neck styles. Personally, I favor the v-neck exclusively; the cut is more modern, however, that is your ultimately your choice to make. From luxurious, absorbent supima cotton to silky modal, I’ve got you covered.
Just take some time to address this oft neglected area, but essential piece of your daily attire today.
