I can't believe such a simple basic can cause such fuss. I have always seen men in short sleeved shirts, some awful, some beautiful. To make it seem like it is a fashion statement is akin to declaring shorts are, or miniskirts, or uhm, short sleeve blouses. They just are...if the article said it had a grandpa collar or longer tight mid-sleeves then that would be a story. Honestly, menswear brings me to tears it's so sad and boring sometimes.

Something tells me we are going to see this a lot this summer... And I'm not sure that I like it. I haven't seen anyone wear it good.
Although, I have to say it does get a little better when they wear it open and not closed. Like in these first pictures of J.W. Anderson.



J.W. Anderson S/S 2011


But this is just another day at the office:


Uniqlo + J S/S 2011

it should be done as casually as possible. untucked or open is a good way to go. as good as the cut and fit on clement's shirt is (as you'd expect) it still doesn't really look right.

Oh my gosh guys I can't wait to tell my dad he's actually wearing something trendy for once!

I wouldn't mind giving this a try for myself, although i'd like it to be done in a Isabel Marant kind of way and wear it other slouchy under tops/tanks and then throw on some cropped bermudas and while i'm at it get some nifty brown leather strappy sandals with socks on as well.

I agree so hard with this.
Personally, I feel like this thread is ridiculous.
Especially hater comments like just wear a polo.

Good thing I've been wearing short sleeve shirts for...
Forever.

I totally agree, actually thats what I do.

I love this casual shirt by John Rocha and whenever I wear, I tend to roll one of the sleeves (just one) and I prefer it much more than short sleeves shirts.
