I always do this when buttoning up for a suit/tie, but I'm working at a business casual firm so the top button will usually be open, and I feel like it looks decidedly dorky and low class to have a white t collar popping out from under, say, a blue or lavender shirt. But at the same time I don't want to risk sweating through my button down and the tee gives some nice protection from that. Would wearing a white tank top instead work, or is that some sort of faux pas?
V neck undershirts will solve your problem. I would not go for a tank top (I assume you mean a wife beater) as that seems odd with business attire.
V neck is the correct answer. They look better when wearing a tie as well.
What's the solution beyond anti-persperint and a tshirt for generally preventing pitting in the summer? Putting a white shirt underneath seems to only create more body heat and sweat, so while it reduces the issue, it is not nearly enough. Is there any way to really reduce when you have to wear a jacket too?
ETA: Anon cause shameful
I'm a HORRIBLE sweater, and have become pretty adept at hiding it. Anyway, as a summer, I kept an extra undershirt in my office and would change it if necessary (sometimes necessary if I walked to work on a particularly humid day, or went out to lunch somewhere that required a bit of a walk). I also would wear a sport coat -- counterintuitive but hid the armpits and back.. I also carried a folded up paper towel (name brand shit only) in my pocket to wipe my forehead if necessary.
... I'll go curl up in a ball of shame now.
