Ask the MB -- T-Shirts

The Calvin Klein T-Shirt: Best Ever
The Calvin Klein T-Shirt: Best Ever
Q: While you're on the subject of undershirts, please settle a dispute my wife and I are having. We were going into a restaurant and noticed a college-age kid coming out of the nearby liquor store wearing madras shorts, flip flops and a plain white t-shirt. (Nothing written on it -- just a regular old Hanes tee.) My wife said the MB would NOT be happy. Since I have worn a plain white tee to the grocery store on occasion, I disagreed. What would make you happy for a quick run to the grocery store or liquor store?

A: John, you won't be surprised to learn that you are right and your wife is wrong. A plain white t-shirt is a staple of any MB's wardrobe, and not just for liquor store runs. We're not a big fan of Hanes, mainly because we are huge, HUGE fans of Calvin Klein t-shirts (both crew neck and v-neck). Fine cotton, short sleeves to show off the result of punishing workout routines, and just the right amount of material around the waist to conceal addiction to beer and/or beef jerky. Highly recommended.
