Wife beaters

How do you feel about them? I just bought my 12 year old a pack of them yesterday by his request and he wore one out today for rollerblading without a shirt over it. I was not thrilled about it but what can I say, he's old enough to pick out his clothing choices. Do you allow your sons to wear them out in public? Btw it was 85 degrees today.

 tacky looking.  Either wear them under a shirt or buy an actual tank top.

I'm not a fan but at least he's wearing a shirt? can't really dictate what a 12 year wears unless you deem it inappropriate.

Out here they are very common but ONLY as an under shirt. I wouldn't like it, because the only guys that wear them As shirts are kind of skanky meth heads.

He didn't have a shirt over it. I'm starting to think the only reason he asked for them is to show off his arms lol

They're not common to wear out here unless they're under the shirt or for basketball and he's not playing basketball at this time.

I wear SOs around the house. My nephew (5) has been wearing them during the summer for a couple years now. Only around the house, or in the yard. They're comfortable and light.

Lol, yeah I meant the WB being the shirt as opposed to shirtless althogether. 
Trying to catch some lady attention maybe? :)

I think it's despicable that society fully embraces & STILL uses this "nickname" for a simple white undershirt tank top.

They wear them, but we don't call them wife beaters in front of the kids, just tank tops...
