Fact is, short sleeve button-downs are about as bad as wearing jean shorts (jorts) or pants that are so short it looks like you’re prepared for a flood. And although we’ve all been taught ‘not to judge a book by its cover,’ it is hard not to because these shirts scream ‘undateable’. First impressions do mean a lot, so stop being cheap and just buy the whole shirt. Then, if you are too hot or just want a much cooler/casual look, roll up the sleeves!
In the long run the long sleeve button-down is a better buy… you can wear it in the summer with the sleeves rolled, or wear one under a sweater when it’s cold. So get your monies worth and don’t cheat with the short-sleeves… no girl likes a cheater anyways.
