In the hierarchy of T-shirts, v-neck T-shirts rank pretty low, despite having so many devoted fans. The stigma that surrounds them can be blamed on an unfortunate blip in fashion history when brands like American Apparel hocked versions of the tee so ridiculously low cut they got their own SNL skit. Luckily, things have turned around and, thanks to Chris Hemsworth in the pages of GQ, we have solid proof that v-necks can be cool. Hemsworth, to his credit, has the optimal physical appearance for a v-neck. But we’re serious when we say that you don’t have to be Thor to pull one off. What you do need, however, is a healthy dose of upper-body confidence and to follow these three simple rules.
