Deep V-Neck Undershirts

November 19, 2012 | By | 22 Replies More

During the non-summer months, my undershirt style of choice is the v-neck undershirt.

Most of the time I’m wearing a collared casual shirt, where I leave the top one or two buttons undone. Since I’m not a hairy guy (thanks Mom & Dad!), and I don’t mind doing a little manscaping every once in a while, I generally like my undershirt’s v-neck deep enough so it don’t show, or shows very little.

Stylistically, this is my preference and one shared by many fashion conscious people. Most stylists or fashion consultants would agree that your undershirt should not show.

Now I’m not telling all you crew neck undershirt wearers that you’re doing it wrong, because I’m a big believer in individuality and personal preference. I’m just saying that’s what I do.

So I’m glad that this reader wrote in with his question about deeper v-neck undershirts because now I get to have a central place here on the site that identifies these types of undershirts!

Question About Deep V-Neck Undershirts

Hi Tug,

Love your site.

I was hoping you could recommend 2 or 3 high quality brands that have pretty deep v neck cuts in their shirts. I’ve looked around and many seem to have a minimal drop in the v neck cut.

Thanks! J

    I just ordered 3 ASOS deep V. A little over $10 each, half the price of these others. They shipped from Spain so it took a few weeks and arrived 3 days passed the day they said they would. No tracking number for my order, but they came. I like them and will order 15 more.

    • Tug says:

      thanks for that info brad!

      glad you like the asos deep v-neck t-shirts. $10/each is a great price.

      what size did you order, and how long are they from hps (where shoulder meets the collar trim) to the bottom?

      • Brad

        says:

        I ordered size Large. 29″ Their website wouldnt allow me to order more than 10 at a time. This time there is a tracking code. Im guessing this second order took about a week to ship, free shipping, no tax.

            Hey Tug,

            I’m trying to decide between the ASOS Deep V, Collective Thread’s JT Modal and Ribbed Tee’s Retro Fit V-neck. I said before that I need three buttons open but that’s not really true, two buttons open is all I really need :). I also like a close-to-body fit and long enough that it stays tucked in! I like the pricing of the ASOS, however would you be willing to give an opinion on one of these three?

            Thanks!

          • Tug says:

            heya ben,

            good to hear from you buddy!

            can you point me to the asos deep v-neck that you’re thinking about, via posting a link here in a reply?

            ribbedtee retro fit is not close body fitting (or fitted), so i would say that’s not the right one for you unless you want to buy a size smaller. the evo tencel from ribbedtee is fitted, and deep v-neck.

            collected threads has always been known for keeping the neckline of the undershirts hidden, so i think that could be a good choice.

            point me to that asos deep v-neck, and i’ll take a closer look (:

            says:

            I own a collected Threads model. It is very clingy and it is very long. I am only 5’7″ and what I do not like is how long it is. So if you are tall this could be the one. IF is a deep neckline. So it will not show with 2 open buttons.

          • Ben

            says:

            Thanks Clay! Which Collected Threads model did you purchase?

            Hey Tug,

            Thanks for your quick response! I’m examining the ASOS Extreme Fitted Fit T-Shirt With Deep V-Neck and Stretch. You should be able to find it at the following URL. Please let me know your thoughts!

            Thanks!

          • Tug says:

            heya ben,

            thanks for that info! oh man, that deep v-neck looks like a great option — especially for $10.

            hell, i’d likely try that asos first, and go from there.

            my only nit is that it’s only available in white, and not other neutral colors like grey/heather grey or tone. not sure about the weight either, but i have a suspicion that it’s light enough to wear as an undershirt.

            other than that, i think that asos deep v-neck t-shirt looks good!

            buy it and let me know what you think of it (:

            Hey Tug,

            I think I’m going to steer clear of Asos shirts, for the time being. I came across another page or your’s indicating that Asos shirts are “short undershirts” which is definitely not what I want. I struggle to keep my undershirts tucked in. That’s one of the reasons I invested in some Under Armour undershirts a few years ago, although they don’t offer a deep v-neck option so I’m not going to re-up with them. Here’s the page where you discuss “short undershirts”. If I’ve misunderstood something please set me straight. Thanks!

          • Tug says:

            heya ben,

            that might be true for some asos t-shirts, but that deep v-neck t-shirt looks a bit longer.

            the model is 6’1″, and if you look at where the pant line is in the photo, it does look like the shirt is a bit longer than some of the ones i’ve seen in the past.

            now, i’m not sure how much that shirt will shrink in the wash, but it does have 4% elastane (spandex) so it might not shrink too much.

            anyway, for $10, it couldn’t hurt to try it (:

            says:

            Hey Tug,

            So I went ahead and ordered some of the tight fitted deep v-neck shirts from Asos. I’m wearing one as I write this, for trial purposes. I am 6′ 1″ myself as well. Here are my observations:
            1. The shirt is long enough to stay tucked in.
            2. The v-neck opening is not deep enough to allow for two buttons to be opened on a dress shirt. The collar band on the undershirt is visible, even when fully tucked into pants.

            Long story short, I think I will need to return these and invest in a shirt with a deeper v-neck, perhaps the Collected Threads JT Modal or JT Original. The good news is that Asos seems to offer a solid return policy.

            Please Let me know if you have any thoughts. Thanks!

          • Tug says:

            heya ben!

            ok, that’s great information about the deep v-neck from asos.

            man, from the photo you’d think it would be deep enough — but proof is in the pudding.

            thanks so much for sharing your feedback about the asos deep v-neck. keep me posted on the other products you try in this category (:

          • Ben

            says:

            Hey Tug,

            I ordered 3 gray JT Modal shirts from Collected Threads, Inc. today. I’ll post on my opinion of them once they come in.

            Cheers!

          • Tug says:

            excellent! thanks ben (:

    Look at connected threads. Really low cut undershirts for men.
