What Replaced It: Crewneck Sweatshirts
Admit it—no self-respecting guy actually wore these things. They were so awkward, like the red-headed stepchild of knitwear. You had to have a certain build, had to wear a button down shirt undearneath (or v-neck tee) in order for it to not look weird, and often they were more uncomfortable than stylish. Crewneck sweatshirts are just easier to throw on, they're pretty much one step removed from a hoodie. Perhaps that's why guys have chosen those over these gross v-necks.
