I just started dressing like a real man thanks to your posts. ? You’re welcome. I know you have been preaching to your viewers as always to wear college shirts in public but when is it acceptable for men to wear regular t-shirts other than playing sports and working out. I'm asking because I still have a lot of t-shirts that I cherish. And I would not like to put them to waste. ? And I totally understand that. I've got a lot of t-shirts as well. Unfortunately, most of them are from the time period when I wore mostly t-shirts and they sit in my drawer and I use them when I'm working. But you’ve got a good point because we live in a society which we look around and almost everyone is wearing a t-shirt.
And that’s really why I put out those other articles because I wanted to address the problem that I think we just over use the t-shirt but there are plenty of instances in which you can wear a t-shirt and you're going to be perfectly fine. My whole reason in putting out information, kind of wanting you to consider other options, is because so many men do not consider other options. They simply always grab the t-shirt and I got hit in one of my other posts which I’ll link to you down below but in that other post I talk about most men’s body types are not complimented by the t-shirt. So if you are in, let’s say the 15 to 20 percent of men whose bodies are complimented by t-shirts, well go ahead and wear it. Assuming that the situation dictates it, so then it’s a casual situation because obviously you don’t want to wear a t-shirt to a night out or to a big event or meeting perhaps your girlfriend’s family or maybe you're just going out on the town. And if you're going to be making first impressions I always recommend going with at least a colored shirt. And it’s such an easy upgrade that – just leave the t-shirts at home. Another great example is if you're going perhaps to a of event in which most people are going to be wearing t-shirts, well in that case you want to make sure you go to the quality t-shirt. Let’s say you're going to be going to a concert, you're going to be going to a night club and you know that almost everyone there is going to be in that type of a shirt perhaps it’s a disco tech or something like that where you're going to be actually be moving quite a bit and sweating. In that case I see where you want to wear t-shirt. Just make sure you're wearing with that’s of good quality, that’s designed to be outer wear. You don’t want to be wearing an undershirt and trying to pass that as a t-shirt, it’s just not going to work.
And just look at the quality of the shirt, is it something that – are you wearing it because it’s a keepsake and I mean I've got some great – I went to undergrad at Colonel College in Mount Vernon, Iowa and I got one or two of those t-shirts still hanging around. But I went from 1994 to 1998 and I can tell you that in the period of 13 years plus more, maybe a couple shirts are ordered. Those shirts are not holding up well and I shouldn’t be wearing those really out there in public and – so look at this shirt, look at the quality, look at the fit of this shirt as well. It needs to fit you properly. And this comes in to again playing where you need to have the body type because if you’ve got a bit of a stomach, if you are – you’ve got perhaps bit larger in the chest area not because you work out, you want to be careful about wearing t-shirts because they’re just going to exaggerate that and it’s going to make you look – I think I've got a picture of grimace on a real men real style but if you look at that guy, there’s a reason why he disappeared from McDonald’s besides the fact that he’s kind of the reminder of why not to eat there. But you look at his body shape and it had no shoulder built and it just grew bigger in the mid section and just had this big shape like a gum drop or something and you do not want to go out reminding people of bean shaped like a gum drop, no. That’s not a masculine look, so throw on a jacket or wear something that’s going to better compliment your build and kind of push down your floss highlight the things which are good about you, when it comes to your body. Other times you could wear a t-shirt I'm thinking if you're going to be around close friends. And my thing here is you're not going to be out making first impressions because if you're a single guy or you're a business owner or you're somebody who just likes to meet people, and you meet somebody for the first time. You are creating a first impression and you want to create a good positive first impression. Perhaps you meet a lovely lady there and you only get a chance to talk to her… …but you know what? She remembers you because it was just something about that guy. He was dressed sharp and I liked him.
He put off a good feeling. That’s what you want her to say, not just, “oh who you're talking about? Which guy was it? ? That’s not what you want. The other thing is if you're going to be active which it kind of eluded to but there's all types of being active, there's going to the beach, there's hiking in the mountains, there's going and playing a game of pick up football, so on those cases of course you can still wear a t-shirt. That’s where its going to be much more suited. When it comes down to it, it just sounds like you don’t want to give up on the t-shirt and I agree and I'm not saying to completely throw it out of your wardrobe but what I am saying is everytime you're getting dressed and you're going out and making first impressions, think about what you're putting on and make sure you're sending the message that you want. Okay, this has been Carl Sentinel’s this style blog. I’ll see you in the next post.
