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.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
