Remember the tv shows "American Idol" and "X Factor" with Simon Cowell as one of the judges? He ALWAYS wore a white undershirt unless it was a more formal night in which he would wear a suit (but the dress shirt was unbuttoned and open). It's called an UNDERshirt for a reason.I always laugh at a TV advert that's playing now. It's for a laundry product.
Man and woman are meeting on a first date. She's sitting at a restaurant table, pretty-but-simple print dress, big smile, very cute in a girl-next-door way.
In comes the "gentleman," plops down, he's in a frigging v-neck undershirt, and the neck opening is all twisted and stretched out of shape.
"Hi," she says, "You look...casual."
Then the voiceover kicks in and says that if he'd used their laundry product, his shirt would look nice and uncrumpled, and all I can think is, "A knocked-about undershirt isn't the issue...the fact that it's an undershirt, on a first date no less, is."
It'd be much better if it were an ad for common sense pills.
Oh yes. It's been quite the trend here for several years now.
And if we're talking about fashion peeves..."athleisure" wear. Just stop it already!
Oh, don't get me started on the pants/trousers lower than the waistline fad. Ugh. I don't need to see your underwear dude. ;-0
