Faux layers in kids shirts - love it or hate it?

In kid's clothing, so many shirts have faux undershirts and it drives me crazy. There are a few select times when it does look cute and the outfit is easier to wear without all the layers. Most of the time, however, I just simply hate it.

I just bought a shirt for DD because it was really cute. Then I used a seam ripper to remove the faux tank. The shirt has a crew neck. So the "tank underneath" has to be right up by the neck to even show. It would really be a hideous tank if it were a real article of clothing. Why do the clothing companies do this? I guess because i just bought one.

The other one that bugs me is a boys short sleeve polo shirt with long sleeve t shirt arms. To me, it takes a nice shirt and makes it look dumpy. just make the shirt long sleeved with the material of the main shirt!

Am i the only one? what are your opinions?

  • It doesn't bother me, but my kids like the look of a short sleeved shirt over a long. I can take it or leave it.

  • I really hate the ones that are long sleeves 'under' short sleves. Especially when I love the short 'sleeve shirt!'

  • It has never bothered me. But I've found if I don't like a certain type of clothes, I just don't buy them...

  • Yeah, I'm not a fan of those 2 shirts in 1 for anybody.
