Rated 2 out of 5 by John1934 Bad Purchase
I recently bought four packages of this new T-Shirt from Brooks Brothers but was forced to return them when I discovered that this brand, unlike its predecessor, features a v cut at the nect which rises so high that, with an open shirt, the material shows above the shirt opening. I believe the point of the v design is specifically to allow you to wear underwear without it showing. I asked the person at the store why the change was made and he said the previous supplier had gone out of business and the current supplier has this new design. Stupid design, if you ask me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by hxly2 I purchased Brooks Bros v-neck undershirts in the past and loved them. The quality was very good. I want to buy more, but I agree with the other reviewers who complained about the higher v-neck. The point of v-necks is to prevent the undershirt from showing with an open collar. Please bring back lower v-necks! At least give us a choice. Thanks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TheBigOne The fit has changed
My default undershirt has changed. When I first started buying these shirts the V neck did not show when I wore an open collar or a polo. Now it does and I cannot understand why BB thinks that this is not a problem for a shirt that costs 3 times what any other one does.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rolly Great undershirt however there's a design flaw
I like this undershirt very much, but agree with some of the other reviews which state that that V design is too high. The result is that the undershirt material can be seen when you are wearing an open neck shirt. This design flaw should be easily fixed by BB.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TOROH Great Quality But
Overall, a great undershirt, but I wish the V-neck was a bit deeper so that it wouldn't show at the neckline when wearing a dress shirt.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CRANKY PLEASE REDO THIS SHIRT
I've been buying and sleeping in your V-Neck merserized cotton undershirts for many years. However, I like generous sized neck openings because when cold, I wear them under my outer shirt and don't like the white to show. At first, Size L was OK, then size XL with the Blue label was OK. Now the XL with the Green label is much too tight around the neck. Please go back to the Blue label.

Not a real v-neck suitable to wear under a dressy shirt. Poorly designed, with top of shirt easily showing. Perhaps suitable for very small people. OK perhaps to look cool, where it is meant to be seen, like with a sweater.

The T-Shirt has a nice feel - but is a little tight - or at least more custom fit than I am used too. I wear BB Large slim fit shirts. I find the BB Large regular V-Neck T-Shirts a better fit for me. Both T-Shirts are excellent quality.
