Good heavens. A cotton undershirt wicks away the perspiration so you feel cooler and prevents your shirt from being soaked from sweat. This isn't rocket science.

I wear crew neck tees under everything even other crew neck tees.

I do not like v necks or A-shirts/tanks/wife beaters but I do wear the latter under dress shirts.

I hope the crew neck under the crew neck bit keeps you up at night. You can't stop me.

How do tank-style undershirts prevent perspiration under the arm pits from getting on a shirt? Aren't the armpits uncovered in those?

Many guys wear this to make their traps look bigger.

I have been wearing undershirts all in my life. I always wear one, even under a T-shirt. That's the norm in the culture I came from, but throughout living in this county close to 20 years, no one has told me anything against that. Maybe it means that the fashion police only exists in the cyberspace...

Not very often but sometimes if I had to go undershirt-less, I feel.... something's missing. Maybe that would be very similar to women going out without ..... the undergarment holding the bosoms?

You are right, this is not rocket science. When you wear two layers instead of one you feel warmer, it is that simple! Sweat comes into the picture when getting too warm, something that may not happen if shedding the undershirt and wearing just one layer.

But how could a thin layer of fabric do that? I mean, do they really believe that works?

I have no idea; it does push up the fabric of the over shirt, works best when the over shirt is a thicker and harder material.

I do not know if it is cultural thing, regional, generational or what; only found this out by accident so I guess I was out of the loop as everyone else acted like it was common knowledge.

Men sweat. Undershirts are cheap and absorb sweat. Dress shirts and polo shirts are expensive. Dress shirts and polo shirts that don't get stained by sweat last longer.

Get over it.
Thank you! half the time I don't even realize the damn thing is on, lol

Actually you should take it from me. I have the right amount snobbery combined with a dash of
@ss H_le ishness to not only look and act like your CEO I most likely am.

If you just copy how Brian Ferry who headed Roxy Music looks you would have achieved greatness and style beyond this dimension.
