The V-Neck: Cool or Tool?


As summer has apparently come early this year, I’ve been using the ol’ t-shirt collection more than usual. And while I think my pile of souvenir t-shirts from around the country is still pretty awesome, occasionally I figure I better dad it up and dress more maturely. So last time we were at Target I was looking through the plain colored t-shirts – a classic choice I supposed. Anyway, one side of the shelf had crew necks and the other had v-necks. I’ve always been leery of the V, it just didn’t seem right for a dude to wear one (no offense to those that do – unless it’s a deep V – then a little offense). But anyway, as I perused the t-shirts I thought to myself maybe I’ll give the V a try. Not necessarily because I think it’s cool in the aesthetic sense of the word but because I think it might be cooler in the temperature sense of it. It’s like when you cook a microwave burrito and they tell you to tear the end of the package to let the steam out – maybe the V will be like that little tear and it will let out the unreasonable amount of body heat I produce in summer. We’ll see!
