That is an ample amount of male cleavage to be showing. Unless you don't plan to re-attach it to your new neck-line, leave the collar attached to the back of the shirt. Most of the time I associate v necks with guys in bands haha. Almost all women prefer a v-neck t-shirt over a crew neck one.
I generally relegate v-necks to undershirt territory since they don't show when you wear a shirt over them with the top button undone. Crewnecks are good for general wear. It comes down to personal preference. I wear crew necks far more than v-necks. I'll change it up to a v-neck every once in a while. I dont like layering V-necks that are visible anymore.
I don't wear any shirt that isn't a v-neck or leaves space between the end of the shirt and my neck.

Roll necks are higher than the crew neck, often with a roll of material while a ballet neck is a ladies version with a wider neckline. Crew neck variations As well as the classic crew neck T-shirt , there are other variations on the theme. The Henley shirt is an example where the neck line breaks up with a placket containing two to five buttons.
When the buttons are fastened, it has the same line as a crew neck. The mock neck or mock turtleneck is another version that extends around one inch higher than normal. On the other hand, a crew neck t-shirt worn on its own with a pair of jeans and a lightweight jacket is still a classic look that will get you plenty of attention. Just remember to not tuck in your t-shirt like a dweeb. And the best way for a well built man to cash in on the t-shirt is by focusing on the fit, eschewing any and all obnoxious logos, and choosing a v-neck cut.
