During the Michael Jordan Era, Hanes came out with a commercial that showcased its undershirt on arguably the best basketball player in history. Both Jordan and the lucky passenger showed off their undershirts with pride. I am here to tell you all to do the opposite; this was simply good product placement. Undershirts are meant to be hidden, invisible perhaps. When wore, observers cannot see it. The purpose of an undershirt is to do the following:
