Undershirts / Tshirts

Post by Sam »

Too long have I been putting up with yellow stains under the arm pits, or sheer shirts. Wife got me some beefy JC Penney / Stafford brand. I thought they would be too heavy but no, they are not. A bit pricier than than the Hanes/Fruit of the Loom brands at Walmart about $21 for 4 when you get them on sale at Penney's versus about $14 for 6 of the Hanes.

I even tried the 60% cotton / 40% polyester shirts that are 'cooler" Again, Hanes is so sheer. However, I got some from a brand called Arizona at JC Penney and they seem better somehow. Got them in grey to wear under white shirts as they show less under a white cotton dress shirt than a white tshirt.

I prefer v neck over a crew.

I got some JCPenney T-shirts which are a little bit heavier than the stuff you get at Walmart or target, such as Fruit of the Loom or Hanes. Let me tell you these are some great T-shirts. Little bit pricier than the Walmart stuff but well worth it. Also get some 60% cotton/40% polyester gray T-shirts from a brand called Arizona at JCPenney and I like those too

I wear white heavy cotton Gildan t-shirts and like them a lot. They last a long time, and they seem not to stain easily.

I wear different brands of "sweat block" style t-shirts. They have padding under the armpits and work like a charm. The heather gray / off white colors do not show through dress shirts. These types of shirts have been a game changer for me. The only drawback is the price... they're not exactly inexpensive.
