Err TK Maxx sell plenty of decent branded shirts (Thomas Pink, Charles Tyrett among others).

Agree everyone needs at least one good crisp white shirt but you dont have to spend a fortune especially of you wont wear it often.

Tickers, if you sweat profusely or have the body hair of a Serbian cab driver, then by all means go ahead and wear an undershirt.

But it is not "proper etiquette" to do so. In fact, a gentleman expressly does not wear an undershirt under his shirt.

I have body hair AND tattoos and wear plenty of white shirts; the type of shirt I wear is not see-through so I don't need to wear something underneath it. Plus, I would be far too hot. As it is, I wear deodorant and so don't have wet patches on my armpits.

OP, I think you've got your answer. Mods, you know what to do.

I agree with you 100% about all elements of this post but I think you should be banned for two lifetimes for ordering mods around!!! Mods are Gods.

Well you've already got a tattoo that you don't want anyone including yourself to see so I guess piercing your foreskin isn't a huge leap for you to make.

Dan do you find people struggle to understand you? I’m beginning to think your problem isn’t why I’d cover up a tattoo but the fact I have a tattoo!!!

I feel so much better now. Why didn’t you just come out with that at the beginning ya little nut.

It is well documented the reasons for wearing an undershirt, I'm sorry but you could not be more wrong.

You get a tattoo where ever you god damn like, and it's nothing to do with anyone else.

Thread is about decent white shirts, not the motivation and mindset of people who get tattoos.

I don't buy the argument that people get tattoos for themselves. People get tattoos as a cry for attention, "look at me", "look what I did", I'm so deep and insightful", "I'm tough" when in reality what people are actually doing is highlighting their own insecurities by branding themselves with some obscure slogan or image that is supposed to mean something.

It's interesting to see that the thread about white shirts at weddings is cattier than almost anything on women's outfits for weddings.

Anyway relax, sales of suits are down, Prada just sent out down the runway models dressed for commute and Armani is dressing men in Matrix inspired dystopian clothing. Soon you will be arguing should you even wear suits to weddings and not when it's appropriate to take of jacket.

I would go to decent independent shop and try some of their shirts and buy something that's thick enough.

Nothing thinly veiled about it. I'm blatantly up front that I do not like tattoos.
