    So the rumor is new men's garments coming in June... shorter sleeves and a more athletic design (whatever that means).

    As long as they bring the vneck back I'll be happy.

    Where's this rumor coming from.

    I have a feeling the v-neck won't be coming back this time around. So I'll continue to make my own v-necks as needed.

    A friend's cousin who's wife heard it at the distribution center at the temple... it must be true!

    From LDS.org, last year:

    A new style, Women’s Stretch Cotton garments, were introduced in February of this year (see related story), and the product line will be extended to include men’s Stretch Cotton styles available in early 2019.
    https://www.lds.org/church/news/chur...brics?lang=eng

    Maybe "stretch" is the "athletic design" your friend's cousin's wife overheard at the distribution center at the temple.

    I love the covenants that these garments represent, but I want off this boat.
    Kind of sad that the recent changes came too late for Mrs. Funk. Seems like a lot of what she was asking for.

    Just ordered a v-neck top and corresponding bottom. Will return and report.

    I have heard for a while that the men would also get a style with screen-printed marks instead of the stitching that shows through most shirts that have a decent fit. Is the new V-neck the fulfillment of this promise?

    They are very comfortable and a nice fit. Better than any of the styles I have previously worn. Took a chance on the regular length (5'10) and was rewarded as it no longer comes to my shins. sleeves allow for normal short sleeves without any show. No complaints from me, but never had any complaints before except for the bottom length which was solved by buying short.

    This is going to sound stupid, but I still don’t get it.
    Is it bad to look like you’re wearing an undershirt?

    I have the silky roundies under my collection of polo shirts. Just looked in the bathroom mirror and I can’t tell I’m wearing a T-shirt.
    Still, serious question.

    You are in the right. The silky roundies are the best for not getting that shirt-under-a-shirt look, which is goofy if you're wearing a t-shirt. Taster's choice if you're wearing a polo- I wouldn't say it's goofy to have a t-shirt under that.

    I also don't see what advantage the v-neck provides that the swoop neck doesn't, other than possibly looking cooler when you're lounging around the house in your g-top.

    *Falafel, you don't mean like a button-down henley, do you? Like the v-neck provides an extra bare patch of chest you just don't get w the swoop neck?

    The v roughly matches the shape of the open neck dress shirt. When wearing a tie, the preferred undershirt is crew neck so as to not have a v or scoop showing. Now days I only wear undershirts with dress shirts. When I was wearing Gs I never liked the feel of the scoop neck and I hated the way it looked with a white shirt.

    Its just personal preference. When I was younger, I wanted a t-shirt under EVERYTHING, even other t-shirts. Now I can't stand the look of having two t-shirts (one being holy). I prefer the scoop-neck silky, as it is virtually friction-less and is very thin, so there is no extra bulk.

    However, there are times when I don't want to wear the silky. For example, in the summer time, those things are like wearing a trash bag beneath your clothes. They do not breath, which is bad news when it is 115 outside. In that situation, I need something cotton or cotton-like. But I don't the round-neck cotton because I don't want an extra collar in most situations, and I don't want a scoop neck cotton because those are often too thick and I don't like the look under a white-shirt.

    This new v-neck might solve both problems. It is supposedly not bulky and is tighter-fitting, with shorter sleeves. So it won't bunch up under certain clothes. It is also breathable, which will help in the summer.

    The advantage to the V neck is the silk screened marks (to be confirmed when my order arrived). If they have gone from stitching to screening for the v neck only I will switch to almost 100% v neck.

    I like the v-neck for dress shirts. Scoop neck still shows through a white shirt, while a v-neck aligns closer with the actual neck of the dress shirt. Gives you an undershirt without the appearance of an undershirt!

    I don't wear henleys.

    I ordered some v necks and also the other new one. I’m also hoping mostly for silk screened marks and for them to be more breathable and wearable in the hot Texas summers. I also hope the thickness of the neck line is significantly reduced. My current garment versions (scoop neck) have a bunch of material in the neck line. I’m not sure why they made it so thick since you really just need to hem it and be done with it.
