Undershirts get a bad rap, but don’t discount this incredibly necessary base layer to protect your pricier duds from sweat. Let’s start by erasing those terrible undershirt associations that come to mind like uncool dads from your youth and the shameful style mishaps of a nerdy Ross Gellar, because there’s an undershirt option for any guy to wear to conquer sweaty pits, without putting your secret weapon on display. At the end of the day, would you rather suffer the embarrassment of visible wet marks around the office? That’s what we thought. The best men’s undershirts have the soft touch of pima cotton or a modal-blend fabric, moisture-wicking technology like your favorite activewear, and even come in a variety of necklines to go unseen. No matter what your needs may be, we can say there’s an option for any guy to stay dry and uncomfortable, even if the day gets heated. Take a look at the best undershirts for men from top T-shirt brands like Uniqlo, Tani, and Calvin Klein to keep sweat under wraps.

Under Armour Charged Cotton Crew Undershirt – 2-Pack

Tani USA SilkCut Tank Top
Micro modal fabric can make a basic T-shirt feel like a total luxury. It’s incredibly soft and typically used in the best men’s underwear for next-level comfort, but it’s also shrink-resistant with great stretch. It feels like silk, but much more durable. Sure, it’s not the most affordable option out there, but if you wear an undershirt daily, the cost-per-wear value makes up for the price tag.
