Is it also coincidence that your avatar on SF is a closeup of a crewneck sweater?
Crewneck, with a shirt under it. Can't stand the look of a sweater without a shirt under it.
Emphatic agreement with both these comments.I do not find a crewneck paired with a collared shirt to be restrictive/constraining, so that is my preference to wear without a tie. With a tie, I prefer v-necks.
I don't think they look weird, but agree that with a tie they look better.I think v-necks without ties look weird, they show too much of the shirtfront and seem unbalanced without the tie.
