Extreme V-Necks

The growing trend of extreme male v-neck shirts is one that is killing me softly. I feel like overnight guys went from crew cuts to plunging necklines, often showcasing their not so stellar physique, sometimes nappy chest hair, or ken doll pecs.

Now, there are people like Tyson Beckford that get a pass, I mean - the man is gorgeous and I personally don't mind almost seeing his belly button with that ridiculously low v-neck shirt... but for others (*cough* Evan Ross *cough*) please save my eyesight and raise your neckline up a bit. Really though, where did this trend come from and why are guys so quick to jump on board? Do you feel sexy with your nipples almost exposed? Do you like showcasing your chest for the world to see?

I must say that I haven't seen too many brothers in Chicago rocking this style and thank God for that. It has an unusually high "suspect" level that will get associated with you if you dare to dip your collar that low.

The white guys I've seen rocking them as of late have a certain "douche bag" essence about their persona... Like, their v-necks are hanging low and they're the shit (times 2) and you can't tell them anything! lol... I was tempted to take a pic of this group of guys I saw yesterday but they looked like a bunch of "MTV True Life - I have a Jersey Shore house" rejects so I kept it moving.

All jokes aside, regardless of your race - - if you're a man please say no to this "trend". Let's leave the plunging necklines to us ladies because we've been rocking cleavage since the beginning of time and know what we're doing.

This is a look for a select few. The Ken doll pecs don't bother me so much. But dudes with taco meat need to wear two shirts to cover that ish up in public.

I'm laughing my ass off, b/c I just bought a pack of Hanes undershirt V-necks from Target the other day. LOL.

But now that I read your post...in a way I sort of agree. That shit is pretty corny and really suspect. LMAO.

I may still rock mine as what they were meant to be: undershirts. But the red V-neck or multi-colored. I'm laughing.

I don't like to follow trends, so really and honestly THANKS FOR THAT.

Not a fan of this either. Extremely homo in my opinion. Cuz like....we women wear the plunging necklines to accent our breastbone and cleavage, no? So why do men have to do it? To accent their man-boobs?


that is all.

ps; my car broke down on Thursday before the MBIB tour and wasnt able to go because dealing with that has been an all-energy ordeal. Ugh. How was it?

@ Catherine - Taco meat isn't even something that has to be endured. Why not shave it or get that shit waxed away!!

@ E's - There's a difference between v-neck and the EXTREME v-necks that I'm writing about. I don't think regular v-neck shirts look suspect...they can actually look nice but I don't want you to be walking around moments away from a "nip slip" lol...

@ Ms Slim - I'll have to write a follow-up post about how the event was...but don't worry, you missed nothing.
