Sorry it’s been a while since my last post folks. Mrs. Tug and I have been traveling. While we were on the road, I found some really great deals on some undershirts that I’ll be writing about soon so stay tuned.
The next undershirt I plan to review is Execwear’s moisture-wicking nylon/spandex blend.
In the mean-time, here’s another question about deep v-neck undershirts from one of our readers.
i came across your blog, and was wondering if you could help me. I like to wear my dress shirts low (as in top 3 buttons unbuttoned) but im sick of cutting my own deep v-necks into my undershirts. Basically, Im looking for the deepest v-neck undershirt possible. also, something tight fitting and a light breathable material. if you could point my in the right direction id greatly appreciate it. thanks!
Thanks for your email and for visiting my blog! Did you by chance see my post about deep v-necks?
Here’s a blurb from that post:
The deep v-neck from C-IN2 is a nice choice, specifically because they offer shirts made out of pima cotton or a nice modal fabric which will likely feel very nice on the skin, but while that one will meet your needs in the deep v-neck area, I wouldn’t count on it being cut long enough to stay tucked in. For example, the C-IN2 deep v-necks available on FreshPair.com are only 18 ½ from underarm to hem. That’s shorter than I like and I’m 5’9”. Since you are quite tall, you should be looking for shirts that are at least 21”-22” long from underarm to hem and you may only find that in tall-men undershirts.
American Apparel also offers deep v-neck white shirts that could likely serve as an undershirt, but again, they may not be long enough for your build to keep them from untucking.
If you’re an average sized guy, the C-IN2 deep v’s may be a good choice for you. They offer the deep v cut undershirt in soft stretchy modal or pima cotton. Since those blends are more on the stretchy side, you can usually go one size smaller (to get that tight fit) and it will still be comfortable. I had that experience when I purchased a Calvin Klein flexible fit in a medium, and I typically wear a large (just too bad the “flexible fit” isn’t available in a deep v).
Or check out those deep v’s from American Apparel as they are likely a little thinner and lighter than the undershirts from C-IN2.
There is a company, Collected Threads, that offers a shirt with a low collar line, but I don’t believe their undershirts are fitted. I figured I’ll tell you about them regardless.
Lastly, Zimmerli does make a couple of deep v-neck undershirts (also check out this site), but they are pretty damn expensive! I can’t say I’d ever fork out $80-$90 for an undershirt, unless of course I bought it so I could review it here ;o)
Hope that helps! Let me know if you wind up trying one of these and how it worked for you.
