DISCLAIMER. Hey guys, was feeling a little bit under the weather this week so sorry for the lack of effort but I still wanted to give you guys something to chew on. Thanks!
A battle for the ages! Which side of history do you want to be on? Are you Team Crew Neck or Team V-Neck? Both have passionate supporters and only one will be left standing. Seriously, who knew such a common item would create such divisiveness and utter distaste for the other. I'm here to see which type best suits the fit man and I automatically go for the V-neck which doesn't give me an objective point of view so I had to drag someone into this debate to speak on the other side. Against my better judgement, I went down to my basement, unlocked a cement bolted caged and let it out...................my twin brother Lian. Yes I have a twin, unfortunately, and he just so happens to love crew neck t-shirts. I mean, what else would you want to wear locked up in a basement somewhere. So the battle begins for which is better for the fit man, Crew Neck vs V-Neck, Lian vs Ian.
Crew Neck Presented by Lian
First of all, who doesn't have a plain crew neck t-shirt? I don't care what your style is, formal or casual, EVERYBODY has a crew neck shirt. So the first point is it's easily accessible, very affordable and is a neutral clothing item that can be dressed up or down. Want to add more bulk to your perceived look? Throw that crew neck underneath a long sleeve.
V-Neck Presented by Ian
Every muscular man knows the v-neck is where it's at! Not only is it unique looking, it's unique looks compliments the fit physique. Let's start with the obvious, the V shaped neck. Just like the open "V" of a button coat and the collar of your shirt, the V-neck balances and compliments your facial structure. Your face/head is the most exposed body part so you want to naturally draws attention to that part and having it balance with the rest of your outfit is great. Another great aspect to the v-neck is one with a slightly deeper v cut, you can show a little bit of man cleavage from those bench presses you've been maxing out on. As much you like them, the ladies like them too, just be sure to trim down those chest hairs. And finally, if you really want to wear it as an undershirt, because of the V shape you can do so without showing that you're wearing one. It's just not a good look seeing a crew neck t-shirt underneath a long sleeve.
Bottom line is, it's all personal preference which one you go with, there is no right or wrong here(v-neck is better). What you should focus on is the fit on the shirt. Do you like it a little loose or fitted to show the muscles, both shirts can produce killer results.
