Well, if a button-down is no good, how about a hoodie? Ah, much better. But what to wear under it? I could go with a t-shirt, a polo shirt, maybe even a regular white undershirt. I reached into my chest of drawers and happened on the one item I knew I couldn't wear to a baseball game: a V-neck t-shirt.
Yes, the v-neck, the article of clothing that is so controversial that people make YouTube videos about it. Which reminds me...Happy V-Neck Thursday!
There's something about V-necks that makes people think you're either awesome (see above) or, according to urbandictionary.com, "wearing a shirt with a collar the shape of a vagina" (I suppose that could be awesome too but let's assume it's not.) I can't think of any other article of clothing that has so many of both vocal supporters and equally vocal detractors, especially considering that it's just a t-shirt with a little less fabric.
Now, I know what most of you are thinking right now, and yes, I did start this post with a baseball theme in order to rope you into reading about my metrosexual ruminations, but this is a question that should be of interest to you and I would imagine is of particular interest to the three or four ladies who regularly read our blog (including Sam's sister): why is the V-neck so polarizing and in what social situations would you feel comfortable wearing one? I've already crossed baseball games off the list, so that leaves us with about 17,000 other situations. Could you wear one to the park on a Sunday afternoon? How about to a bar? A museum? Where do we draw the line? Your thoughts are much appreciated.
