So you're saying that would one only require an undershirt with these garments if he produced prodigious (or at last pronounced)perspiration? That nipples won't be noticed at all? That the fabric is thick enough that its colors are sufficiently rich and vivid against flesh, rather than against the canvas and undershirt offers?
I'm not trying to be contentious. Maybe I've just not been around enough high quality menswear to be convinced that undershirts are unnecessary.

I know you aren't being contentious.
I am saying that IF a man is not overly perspirant (i.e., to the extent that he can overcome the effects of a quality anti-perspirant) AND the fabric is woven sufficiently tight (not necessarily thick, mind you) then undershirts are unnecessary.
Nothing whatsoever shows. I promise.
Put another way, IF a shirt requires the woeful crutch of an undershirt, it's not a good shirt.
I'm shuddering at the visual of an undershirt showing underneath a dress shirt.

Can you please stop saying "Joke-nippleage"? It's giving me nightmares like you don't want to know.

you are just begging for me to demand that you prove the opacity of the shirts.
but I won't.

oh god. I'm SO with Badger - Joke nippleage? And you give us grief over diva cups and netipots?

Um...BabBab...refresh my memory...who was the one who said:Why do I find the phrase Joke-*****age so amusing? I think because it reminds me of the episode of Sex and the City with the artifical nipples.?
The point remains that you can't see anything of my actual person through these shirts, including Those That Must Not Be Named.

I can find it amusing and revolting at the same time. I find many things that way.
Please tell me those are also not your ties, in addition to those not being your cufflinks? I'm already a little concerned about the lilac shirt as it is. Not sure men can pull off lilac.

Correct, also not my ties. Yes, it takes an extraordinary man to pull off lilac.
But not with brown. Such a thing is completely, totally, thoroughly impossible.
