A portion of a man's chest getting exposed during salaah

Q: During salaah, I sometimes wear a shirt which has a low collar, so a bit of my upper chest (under the bone below the neck) neck gets visible. Is the salaah valid?

Also, how much portion of the chest should be covered by men during salaah? 

A: The salaah is valid.

The chest should be covered when performing salaah.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
