How To Pull Off Short Sleeve Shirts On The Regular

Because: summer.

When it come to some things in life, it’s a case of the shorter, the better. Cases in point: conference calls and the amount of time your GF holds a grudge.

Same goes in the style stakes. Cut the dead weight that are long sleeves this summer. Short sleeves, that’s where our loyalty lies.

Once upon a time in a land not too far away, short sleeves were the uniform of IBM Managers, geography teachers and missionaries alike. But, as we push for casual to be more than just Friday, we take our cues from royalty – Elvis Presley, Marlon Brando, James Dean and more. Crisp, clean and cool was the call of the day. And now, we take it to the contemporary with easy-wear denim, a print that says Aloha.

Summer-ready, the short-sleeve button up is casual take on tailoring, they’re a summer staple. Lightweight, you want to go for a fabrication that is the very definition of breeze. A linen or a cotton blend. Something that breathes.

We’re loving big, bold prints. They make for the kind of shirt that says party, those tropical feels. The shirt that’s more drinks than deadlines. At a swim-up bar if you play your cards right. Take it from Tom Selleck as Magnum, P.I. or Tom Cruise in Cocktail. It’s a guaranteed good time.

And when it comes to how to wear it, it’s a choose your own adventure kind of affair. You are the master of your own destiny. Roll your sleeves or leave them be. Button all the way up, or keep it casual. Wear it loose and open your fave white crew neck

Tips for young players? Make sure your fit is on the money. Check your sleeves, check your shoulders. You’re not going for too-tight, you’re going for something a little more fast and loose (thanks Hamish and Andy). If you see any pulling, any button straining, it’s time to take it up a size.

So, book that weekend at Bernie’s and stay cool.
