I don't understand sleeveless ("wife-beater") T-shirts. Isn't the main functions of a T-shirt to protect your shirt from underarm stains?
Just what is so hard about "pulling off" a V neck T shirt?
This place is going nuts.
It's like saying it's hard to pull off wearing a button down collar.
What's to pull off?
The look can be pulled off pretty easily.
Harder is the "Super V", with the V much wider than the neck and plunging far down the front. it can look hot, but also sloppy and ridiculous.
And, obviously the "Paint On V" is hard to pull off without a great body, but that goes for any super tight clothing
Why do gays favor the V neck Tshirts so much. I understand the wifebeater. To show off your muscles. But if you don't have breasts what is it to show off?
I've read the look nowadays is muscle slut shirts. Hot and slutty!
You need either a barrel chest (and big shoulders) to pull that off; or a sunken chest.
JRM has sloping shoulders so of course it's not a good look for him.
Slutty clothing on men is nasty. It can seem hot at first, but guys going about with rolled up sleeves and 17 buttons undone from their shirt you just know are those they know they're hot types and douchebags.
Leaving a bit to the imagination is better. Like that anchor bitch who was making fun of Lochte, she was right that it was hot he had just the top button undone.
Only guys with muscles can pull off a v-neck. Skinny guys look ridiculous in them, and overweight guys look equally ridiculous.
Basically, your biceps have to make the sleeves bulge, and your chest has to raise the "v" in the collar. That's how you pull off a v-neck.
I only wear them (and in white only) under a buttoned shirt that I'm going to wear without a tie. I don't like to have regular shirt material next to my skin (other than my arms). (I know, MARY!)
r19 is correct you have to have moderate to outstanding man pecs to make them look hawt. Otherwise, just step away from the v necks.
OP, you weren't recently on a blind date that was featured in the Boston Globe magazine, were you? One of the boys remarked about his date's wearing a v-neck shirt with a t-shirt underneath. Made it sound like it was the worst faux pas EVAH.
All the gay blind dates in the Globe go horribly awry because much like the queens on this site, they have WAY too high expectations ("looking for Mr. Right!").
Mr. Wrong can be fun, too!
That is a henley, R24, not a t-shirt.
Let this thread be a lesson to any of you who seek fashion advice on datalounge. 90% of the posters here don't even know what a V-neck t-shirt is.
I know R26 but they weren't just talking about V Necks and the thread became all encompassing again.
