Tank top style undershirts for men are called “wife-beaters” because they appear in a lot of American movies from the NCAA Women’s College Cup December 2&5 2022 Shirt but I will buy this shirt and I will love this 30s and 40s in which uncouth (often ethnic working-class) husbands wear them while abusing their wives physically and/or emotionally. A-shirts leave the armpits exposed, which might make you think they’ll leave pit stains on your shirt, but since these shirts are very breathable, that’s not an issue. They also protect your back and chest from sweat, so it’s essentially better then wearing nothing underneath Where I grew up and many other places around the world “a wife beater” also called a vest is a mandatory part of the school uniform for boys. It is to be worn under the school uniform shirt. Now if you meant, if the parents would allow their son to wear only a vest and go to school, well that would depend upon whether the school dress code allows it or not.
