Gotta love it when guys are helping other guys with undershirt selection.
Just ran across this post on the MFA section of Reddit.com, where a bunch of guys are chewing the cloth about undershirts. Here’s the original question posed by one member:
During my recent fashion transition I switched from baggy ill-fitting undershirts, to slim ones that don’t puff out. I had found these [Target's Evolve Shapewear Shirts], I don’t really need compression, but I like the tight fit. Sadly, they are discontinued, so I tried Alfani Stretch but they are still baggy, I could perhaps size down, but I fear that will cause them to rise up.
MFA, what are your suggestions? What undershirts do you wear?
