If one has a good supply of regular weight white crew neck t-shirts that are either plain or have very small logo on it, then what's the need for a crew neck undershirt? Why do people buy crew neck undershirts, when more a little more money they can buy a better made white t-shirt to wear underneath a dress shirt?

Here price is not the main factor. The subject is a perfect outfit. What's the problem with logo? Are they looks always bad? I think not but it can add a extra adornment. And seems it depends on the overcoat.

the undershirts (i actually wear them as a regular shirt because i HATE logos of any kind and they run cooler - i have gone as far as blacking out the asics logo off my sneakers and removing jeans name tags) are thinner than normal tshirts. that allows for better cooling and more comfort as skin is exposed to air. that's the reason why ppl. buy 'em. lightweight, airy, and they are cheap to boot (10 bucks for a 3 pack here at tjmaxx or marshalls).

My husband wears undershirts because they're thinner and fit closer to the skin. Regular t-shirts are usually bigger in the shoulders, have longer sleeves, and show under his uniforms, even though they're cheaper than the undershirts that he wears.

I wear regular crew neck white T shirts in the house during the winter often. I'm always doing some sort of projects around the house so if I ruin it, I don't care, T shirts come a dime a dozen.

If it has a small logo, it will be visible through some dress shirts. Particularly if it is dark.

Undershirts, when bought to fit right, hug the skin and are, more or less, form fitting. If you wear a baggier regular T shirt under a dress shirt, it is going to bunch and wrinkle. This too, is going to be visible.

Finally, when you can buy a pack of undershirts at a price averaging $3 a shirt, and have a weeks worth for less than $20, how are you going to beat that by buying regular t-shirts individually off the shelf? If they are not quality enough, you can spend more on them too. I have never found the pricier ones are worth the investment however, and I find the longevity of the shirts to be very good considering the frequency of use compared to their price (and the fact they save a lot of expensive dress shirts from sweat staining).
