Undershirts are practically a must under button up shirts with thin material. Imagine a guy with dark body hair in a white shirt that is semi see through. Or seeing their man nipples. NOW do you get it?

That must be a California thing, because I don't see many guys around here wearing see through shirts....

Everyone is mentioning sweat, yes that could be a problem, but I don't think you're sweating 24/7? I notice I sweat less in the summer now that I rarely ever wear an undershirt under my polo or button downs. I still think it is one of the worse looks, especially, I mean why would they make open collar shirts, if it is going to be covered by an undershirt anyway? It makes no sense, and that is why it look SO terrible.

I agree.

I have to disagree, I don't see an issue w/not wearing an undershirt under a polo - but a button-down (which means a dress shirt) - it's a MUST.

Definitely not needed under a polo! Dress shirt? Yes. A tank will do fine, too (like another poster said.)

Frugal sissies.

Wifebeaters are like 3 for $8.

"Normal tank tops" are like $15+ each.

It's the gym. If you care what you look like in the gym, you're doing it wrong.

What if the button down shirt is completely unbuttoned, shouldn't you have a T-shirt of some kind under it?

Some strange opinions on here.

I wear undershirts in both warm and cold weather. I wear them in cold weather to help keep me warm, and to absorb perspiration in warm weather. The only time I wear a single layer shirt is when I'm wearing a t-shirt or I'm at the gym.

Some of you people really think about this stuff too much. People should do what's comfortable for them.
