Marcus Troy Among Those Cited for UNDERSHIRT VIOLATION

August 21, 2013 – Las Vegas - Leading lifestyle blogger & cultural curator Marcus Troy was among the undershirt violators at the Project Las Vegas tradeshow.

 

Full disclosure: Marcus purposely wore the visible crew neck out of amusement upon seeing the UNDERSHIRT VIOLATION campaign a day earlier.  Always a good sport, Marcus gave Collected Threads a photo to capture the moment. 

Among many other roles, Marcus runs the Blogger Project at the tradeshow.  Carefully curated, this is a hand-selected group of bloggers who report real time updates and news as it unfolds.

 

UNDERSHIRT VIOLATION Campaign Launches 

August 19, 2013 – Las Vegas – Collected Threads announced the start of a new interactive advertising campaign that aims to rid the world of the disheveled, visible undershirts.

 The campaign kicked off on Day 1 of the Project Las Vegas tradeshow and included a citation book filled with UNDERSHIRT VIOLATIONS.  Once our Undershirt Enforcers spotted the violators, they were promptly cited.  Collected Threads had a changing area on the tradeshow floor where willing participants would try the jT while allowing us to take before and after photos.

 

 

The Style Blog

 

It's hot out. Which has two immediate implications when it comes to putting a shirt on in the morning. First, you'll want to consider an undershirt, because, remember, it's hot out, and you don't want to sweat through your shirt as soon as you leave the house in the morning. Second, if you're not required to wear a tie, you'll probably want to unbutton your collar and get a little air moving around your neck. Hell, you might even want to undo one more button for good measure. 

The problem, of course, is that with a traditional crew neck undershirt, you'll be sporting an amateurish splash of white right around your collarbone as soon as you undo that first button. And even a V-neck gets exposed by the time you move on to button number two. This is, obviously, not ideal. It looks sloppy, and trust us, it's something to be avoided.

Luckily, a new undershirt has come along to help address this conundrum. The jT invisible undershirt by Collected Threads is designed with a low, wide neckline that won't come peeking out to say hello as soon as you loosen your collar. But unlike, say, a tank top, it's got sleeves, so it'll actually protect your proper shirt from sweat in these balmy summer months. So it's an undershirt that'll actually stay under your shirt. Problem: solved.
