The case of the V-Neck is one long debated. Too metrosexual for your taste? Take a leaf from the style books of the manliest of men- the USMOST- and you might think otherwise.
While it’s clear that not everyone has the physique of Olympians, the truth is that when worn correctly, the transformative power of the v-neck is enormous. It’s slimming, it’s simple, and in the words of Nathan Adrian, “not just a shirt”.
As with all clothes, a good v-neck should skim, not cling to your body. Too tight and you’re pulling a Jersey Shore; too loose and it becomes your girlfriend’s night-dress. The neckline- unless you’re feeling particularly eccentric- should always remain half an inch or an inch below the center collar bone.
The perfect day-to-night staple, the v-neck also keeps things flexible for day-to-day shenanigans. Layer it up with a vest or cardigan and some dress shoes, and you’re ready to go from man date to first date. Yes, the jeans can stay.
