Hey guys i had a question, you say to always wear an undershirt to help with the sweating, and i was wondering if you had any recommended material?

The ones I wear are the Hanes 100% cotton ones, and they work alright. But i was wondering if yall suggest maybe polyester or something, but it needs to be not visible.

So maybe just specify what type of undershirts thanks a lot, I really love this site.

    Hi Joshua,

    That’s an EXCELLENT question! And it’s something that we don’t cover very thoroughly on the site (not yet, anyway).

    There are certain undershirts that are better than others.

    There’s a company called Advantage Wear ( that specializes in products for excessive sweating.

    You can find underarm sweat-shields (which I highly recommend), and also shirts with the shields already sewn in. Their clothes are a little more expensive than regular clothes, but I’ve used them with good results.

    Another company that is dedicated to making good excessive sweating undershirts is called Kleinert’s Shields ( They have a huge variety of sweat-guards, and clothing specially designed for excessive sweaters.

    The last thing I would recommend to you Joshua, with regard to undershirts is to try wearing more than one. If it’s not too warm, stacking a few undershirts can help a lot.

    Speaking of Stacking, have you been following “Mechanic Method?”

    I suffer from severe sweating of the underarms and the trunk. I’ve learned over years that there are some 100% polyester shirts that will hide the sweat completely. The shirt can be 100% wet and it won’t show. Mostly black shirts. You need to do some testing: I found several at Macy’s over the years. The black may fade over time for some shirts, but its worth it.
