Happy New Year folks! I hope your holidays were safe and enjoyable.
Lots of great things to talk about in 2009. For starters, I got my Lumbarwear Sports Performance garments right after Christmas as expected and plan to wear them each for the day so I can tell you about it. Also, Equmen is supposed to be making their much anticipated core precision undershirt available for purchase on their website on January 10th. I should be receiving mine any day now and plan to put that puppy on as soon as I get it and write about it here. My write-up of the new modal undershirt from Tommy John is forthcoming as well.
Although this isn’t really a question that came in from a reader, I’ve run across some questions on Yahoo! Answers that I thought I’d share with you. Here’s one from a guy who is looking for a tight collared undershirt for a very different reason:
I need to wear white undershirts for my job. I have a large head, and my collars keep stretching out, which looks unsightly.
Anyone know of a branch of t-shirt where the collar won’t stretch out? Or anyone have any suggestions on how to keep from stretching them out?
Here’s my reply:
Here’s a few ideas:
- Try out the Kirkland undershirts from Costco, or the 100% cotton undershirts from Campbellsville Apparel (online only). Both of those undershirts have fairly high/tight collars that will likely fit more closely and should recover well after you’ve put it on.
- Try stretch undershirts made from materials like lycra or ribbed cotton. These types of undershirts are designed to fit more closely and since they are made of stretchy material, you should be able to slip the shirt over your head without permanently stretching out the collar opening.
- One other idea would be to find an undershirt that has a slightly wider neck opening so you don’t overly stretch it out when you put it on.
