The Top Men's Undershirts for Winter 2013

It's getting to be that time of year again where we have to start layering to stay warm. An essential part of the layering process is your foundation layer. Now I'm not much of an undershirt guy, but when it gets to be cold out like it is now they are essential. Here are my top 3 picks for men's undershirts to keep you warm this winter.

1. RibbedTee
I've mentioned this fantastic brand before.  RibbedTee is by far my favorite undershirt out there that I've tried. In fact, this is the undershirt that convinced me I should wear undershirts again. I'll even wear these shirts in the summer when I'm dressing up. What does it for me is the fabric, the ribbed fabric hugs your body perfectly without being restricting. And the length is perfect for tucking in and not pulling out. My favorite is the classic v-neck in grey. And the cost is unbeatable; get a 2-pack for $20. 

2. Mack Weldon
My second pick is a newcomer on the scene this year. Mack Weldon makes great basics for men, check out the Brief Boy's review of their briefs. Mack Weldon undershirts are super soft while being super thin and form-fitting, unlike a lot of undershirts that tend to be bulky and uncomfortable under clothing. They're a great length for tucking-in and a great overall fit. They are high-quality and durable. However, at $32 a pop they are a bit expensive for daily wear. I like the v-neck in white. 

3. UnderFit
This is another brand that has recently come to my attention. UnderFit undershirts come in both crew and v-neck designs. Currently they are only available in classic white. They are very lightweight and form fitting. I like the sleeve length on these as they are a little shorter than some of the other shirts I've tried (for example, Mack Weldon). At $25 a shirt they are a little more affordable; however, I feel that the fabric is not as high quality as that of Mack Weldon. That being said, they are a great basic choice and will last you well. My only complaint quality-wise is that the printed on tag wore off after washing. This is not really a functional problem, but just an indication of quality. 

So there you have it, these are my favorite undershirts for winter. What are your thoughts on wearing undershirts? What are your favorites?
