    V neck has been en vogue for the past few years and doesn't look like it will be going anywhere anytime soon.

    With that said, a nicely fitted crew neck is always a classic.


    BUUUUTTTT.....for me, I'm really into the scoop neck. It's a lower version of the regular crew neck that shows off your collar bone. I wouldn't recommend this for those guys who aren't fashion forward...

    There's barely a difference when it comes down to it, so whatever looks good on you. I used to be crew only but now I'm much more amenable to v-necks. I have no idea what the current "trend" is though. I'm not good at following those.

    I find V-necks the most comfortable tee shirt.

    The deep V is being trashed in American media (or at least in GQ and Esquire) but when I was in Europe over the summer, I saw it everywhere, and not just on gay guys. Personally, I love the deep V that shows off a great chest. I think the regular V is considered OK here and crew will never go out of style. I think it is a matter of how it looks on you. For some reason, I look better in crew even though I prefer the V.

    My all time favorite Tee-shirt which has a wide crop top but tapered v cut. The one I own has got to be similar to this one. It's simple, form fitting due to the material, casual, classic, classy, and modest with a hint of being sexy without even trying.

    That's a crew-neck Henley that's just a bit tight on the model, so when it's unbuttoned part of the neck resembles a V. I really like Henleys, too.

    I was gonna say it looks like his little brother's henley.

    Personally, IDK as long as it's not strangling me.

    Just, if you are going to wear a shirt that is cut to show off some cleavage... make sure that you have some cleavage.

    No shirts April - November!

    Perhaps your shirt is different, but the one in your photo is clearly a button-up Henley with a crew neck. If the model has smaller muscles, it'd look like this:

    The Crew Neck Guy doesn't spend a lot of time considering his tee shirt choices. He's got people counting on him for his quick decision making and real life skills.
    He's a medic with Doctors Without Borders who also knows how to negotiate a hostage situation without any loss of life.
    His tee shirt has a purpose but it's not about looking good as much as it is about getting a job done.

    The V-Neck Guy really hopes you like his shirt.

    Yes those have buttons all the way down, mine and the one the model is wearing only has 1 button and that's that the top base of where it splits.

    I still like the pink v-neck I purchased from H&M a few seasons back:

    This looks great on you. I am getting back into V-neck t-shirts lately, if they are nicely fitted and in plain bold colours I think they look great.

    Not a fan of the really deep V - even if you have a fantastic chest, it just looks silly/desperate/show-offy.

    I can't help from thinking that a guy is copying his mother when I see a deep drop v neck.

    My t-shirts are almost all from runs, paddleboarding events, bands, bars, concerts, etc. Thus all crew neck. I am not a fashion/style person; I dress for comfort and practicality.

    Sounds more like you dress for advertising...

    Ya, this is true. But that can be said for anything that even begins to look like fashion. Still, true, and suggests that the clothes you select for a given event will give people who you meet a certain expectation of your personality and unfortunately create an image warped by their own prejudices. A guy with some style can pull it off. A guy with a great body can wear anything (or nothing).

    In a lot of cases, yes, because the owners or artists are friends of mine, or bands or brands that I like. If I can help them do well, why not? But I also wear them under hoodies or button-up shirts.

    There was a guy in the place we had lunch yesterday that fit that description. Sweatpants, flip-flops and a t-shirt, with tousled hair, and he looked great. My friend said he still probably took an hour to get ready. But genes are genes.

    It really doesn't matter to me. Both tee shirt types are acceptable.icon_neutral.gif
