V-Neck Shirts

Confession: I can't handle guys in v-neck shirts.

Am I alone here? I guess I don't get the point. I get it a LITTLE more if you have lots of chest hair to show off [maybe my aversion is really to chest hair?] but still, I don't think I could ever go out with a v-neck wearing kind of guy.

Simon always wears them - and perhaps they are growing on me a bit but...I think perhaps this is WHY he ended up in the top 11 unsexiest men on the planet according to Maxim.





















This one isn't as bad...but shouldn't this really be an undershirt....


















Too low - too tight...and not OK if he looks better in it then I would




















Bad...really bad. Take the leather off...

The deep v-necks are creepy. But then again, so is almost every model on the American Apparel site. They should stick to track jackets. Love those on guys :)

Look at Harry Potter! Wow.

I totally agree! I blogged about this last year...

boys should not have a neckline that plunges deeper than mine.

Well, crap! There goes my whole wardrobe...I just wanted to show off my man-cleavage!

Seriously though, you're right. Ew.

the V-Neck has often been mistaken for a superhero costume. I don't know why. The bright colored spandex was always a little sexier in my book. I guess I never published my book yet so maybe no one should actually be required to know this. But isn't it common knowledge....did I leave he oven on...I did burn that pizza and it still stinks in here. maybe I should go check...I don't like cats...

Wow I have seen two dudes on campus with v-necks, and I'll be honest, I agree it isn't the best look. It was strange to notice myself noticing the whole shirt situation.

Took agreat v-neck shot for you this weekend downtown by the standard. even comes with a foxtail - make sure you ask for it :)

hmm, I guess I should remember not to wear my leather vest with the plunging neckline to the coffee shop in case I run into you...

Amen. And to the point of v-necks (ha...no pun intended) The other day I was totally creeped out by a drummer wearing a boat neck. You know...the high, but wide necks that go out to your shoulders. The weird thing was that is had fabric ADDED to the shirt because it was obviously too small and not intended to be worn on a muscle-bulging man. Ew.

Damn it I wear V-necks!

Mind you I always get shit for it in US too. Must be a euro thing...
