What color is actually skin tone?
And why do we call one particular color skin tone, when dozens of skin tones exist? Sounds rather discriminatory and at least not inclusive, something that Undiemeister® certainly wants to be. Simply because we are not alone in the world and it is simply OK to exclude other people. Based on any criteria really. There are so many different colors of T-shirts for sale at the same time, that everyone can choose his or her skin tone. The term “skin tone T-shirt” is therefore incorrect when you are talking about one single color.
And why“skin tone” anyway?
And what were we talking about in terms of skin tone, when talking about undershirts? The point is to find a color that does not show through, so that doesn’t show through a shirt. Yes of course, that depends on the shirt: what color is that shirt and how thick, because of the possible transparency. It turns out that a beige, khaki-like color is the least transparent, so that color offers the best option for a a invisible T-shirt. So even though khaki is not your skin color, a term that has been misconceived or at least has a bad origin, it’s best to use that color against transparency.
An invisible T-shirt from the desert.
I’m sure you wouldn’t have thought it possible to get a khaki-colored T-shirt out of the desert. Or perhaps you did? Perhaps khaki is the best camouflage color in a desert. Not that we frenetically mimicked all the many hundreds and even thousands of shades of the desert to find a shade that we could use for a khaki T-shirt, so a “skin tone” T-shirt. The shade was just there. And it didn’t even take us long to find that color if we’re honest. A new step, including for us, had been taken.
The khaki T-shirt as a T-shirt with a deep V-neck.
Undiemeister® wouldn’t be Undiemeister® if we didn’t take the next step. Not just a deep V-neck. Not just a khaki T-shirt. Both at the same time. Because we thought, if you want to add an invisible T-Shirt to the range, isn’t it best to combine the two variables, the deep V-neck and the khaki color, or skin tone, in one shirt? Wouldn’t you agree? No sooner said than done. Because if you do it, you better do it right.
