I'll go get my fedora, then. And I guess I should stop shaving my neck.

So I like button up shirts, and I roll up the sleeves because I live in the desert and it's hot?

And that automatically makes me a bro? Really?

Do you have well-fitted shirts that can be worn with a suit to work or more formal events, paired with a nice sweater when it gets chilly, or go with khakis to look niceish at church; or do you have a couple ill-fitting shirts with a pattern in atrocious colors that have never seen the underside of an iron? Because the latter is what the article is talking about.

I don't have a single "going out" shirt.  What I wear depends upon the type of place I'm going to.  If it's the local dive bar, then my "Hopeless romantic seeks filthy whore" tshirt is perfect, but I wouldn't wear that to a nice restaurant or more upscale bar.
 
2013-12-04 02:11:40 AM
I have no idea what the article is trying to say. It says don't wear a collared shirt then to wear it its ok?
 
2013-12-04 02:12:12 AM
I actually really like dudes in formal button-up shirts that are untucked, a little unbuttoned, and with the sleeves rolled up.  Probably more than is considered ladylike.  I might be part of the problem.  T__T

I've simply lost control of my wardrobe.
 
2013-12-04 02:17:30 AM
See, the problem with going-out shirts is that you shouldn't have a going-out shirt. A man's wardrobe should be versatile, from totally casual-i.e. beach wear, an old T-shirt for a yard work, etc.-to formal-a tuxedo, or at the very least, a sleek, dark suit-and everything in between. What you wear should be destination-appropriate, and not just a single item that announces that you are, indeed, out on the town. The addition of a collar does not make you "dressed up."

So you shouldn't have a "going out shirt" because instead you should have shirts that are for specific locations and activities?  I get what he's driving at, but that is a terribly constructed paragraph.  Instead he just should have gone with "have shirts and outfits for various activities but please stop wearing these" and put up an image similar to the one markie_farkie posted above.

I'll stick with my Hawaiin shirts. They always come back in style for a few years every decade. I'll just get my one night stand farkin' in during that window.

Let's just admit that this article is as stupid as that "10 things bachelors should stop doing" article from a few days ago.
 
2013-12-04 02:20:00 AM
The only multi-colored button-down shirts I own are ones that women bought for me to wear. And I only wear those to work, tucked into neutral colored slacks, collar open, no tie. If I'm going out, I avoid the kind of suckholes that actually enforce a bro dress code and just go to a friendly bar where my black v-neck t-shirt, boot-cut jeans and Doc Martin steeltoes are welcome. I will be wearing a nice suit to my firm's holiday party this year, but only because it's apparently going to be at a snazzy restaurant instead of a rented room somewhere. The shirt I'll be wearing with it will be a bright, happy, solid color with no tie because it's not a damn conference.

My "I'm married and just out to drink beer with my friends so I don't give much of a fark about my appearance shirt" is vastly less offensive looking and I'm sure much less expensive.  Are women really farking guys in those?

There is something so bizarre about these magazines. I admit I used to subscribe to Men's Health as a teenager for the pictures of the men and the perfume samples.

But by the time I was 20 or so I realized they are bizarre. I realized it when there was an advice column on how much money a man should carry in his wallet. I think the answer was $80 and it had some overwrought explanation as to why.

Women's magazines are ridiculous too, but they at least don't set down these commandments that you're only a woman if you do this, and if you don't you lose your woman card.

The idea that you would pay someone to tell you how to live the most mundane details of your life. I can't get that. Now, the perfume samples, I wouldn't mind still getting those from time to time.

/In case it's relevant, I'm someone who tries to dress nicely, but I fall short of the rules GQ sets. I don't even own a suit, let alone a "work-day suit."
 
2013-12-04 02:34:33 AM
So, it's not a brilliantly written article, but don't pretend you don't have some indication of what they're talking about. The dressed up but down uniform in Chicago, in the northeast, and in California is what they have pictured. Untucked, sleeves carefully rolled, and just cheeky enough to say "I'm clever and edgy" in Comic Sans...

I still see this in all of these regions. That said, it is a versatile way to dress, and I don't see what the issue is. It's not how I typically dress, but it *does* work well for many women, and it requires very little thought. Some people can't swing a faux professor outfit followed by a grey Hugo Boss 4-course gastropub suit offset by a 4% silk pink shirt and typewriter cufflinks.

Maybe bros have figured out something style gurus haven't... Nobody farking cares.

that article was farking incredibly stupid, but i am assuming that it meant the shiatty patterned ed hardy shirts like posted above.  or the AFFLICTION brand as well.
i have plenty of proper formal attire that sometimes sees the inside of a bar in one form or another.  usually not intentional, just coincidental.

I have it on good authority from my fiancee that I should do the opposite of anything GQ says. Considering how great my love-life is, I can say it's a good strategy.

/It could also be the whole "madly in love" thing, too, I suppose.

you can never go wrong with black socks and sandals.  'the german tourist' never goes out of style.
 
2013-12-04 02:48:12 AM
It's either a shirt and tie or something like this.  Took a visit back to NJ a few weeks ago and I had forgotten how much the collared shirt was still in style.  Blech.

I guess I either dress like an adult or a 17 year old.  I'm OK with that.

I generally end up going out in whatever I happened to wear to the office that day, which for all practical purposes means a tailored suit, a fitted shirt with the top button undone and the tie loosened, and perhaps the collars rolled up if I happen to take my suit jacket off.

i have the answer.  the type of people that read and adhere to GQ are the types of guys you never want to meet in a bar you go to, and they go to bars none of us would EVER be caught dead in.

I thought when the masses don't tuck in their shirts, shiftless and sloppy, dressing a la Walmart. Not trying to be uptight, but this is just lazy. Not to be uptight, but I think my wife wouldn't have gone out with me, much less marry me If I dressed like that. Not being a prude, but BRooks brothers or a mlot of ralph Lauren cater to that type of crowd.

Well both of my sisters are married with 3 kids a piece .... to me, 3 kids = toxic.  perhaps I'm shallow these days.  In college I dated 2 different women that each had 2 daughters.  Now, i'm thankful for the tranquility that comes from having no children.
