Ask the MB -- Undershirts and Dress Shirts
Q: What are your feelings on undershirts when your shirt is not all the way buttoned up? Crew neck, v-neck, or none at all....My father who always dresses well tells me if it is going to be any at all it should be a v-neck, but if at all possible none at all... What do you think?

A: Your papa taught you how to wipe your ass, shave your face, and tie your tie. Let's not start doubting him now.

Few things are more vulgar than a white crew neck tee under an unbuttoned woven shirt; you'll look fully unstylish and clueless. A v-neck isn't much better -- the lines look like ass and are the men's equivalent of panty lines -- but may be permissible in extremely cold conditions, either outside or in the office.

In conclusion, do what your dad says and leave the undershirt for the weekend.

(Note: Nothing we just said applies if you are Carson Kressley.)
