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.

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.

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.

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.

The author does realize the concept of a "going out" shirt has existed for decades, to some degree.

1. It shows you're not lazy and don't just wear what you wore to work (and probably sweated on).

2. It shows that you clean yourself up between getting off work and going out, indicating you have some level of respect for yourself.

Is he trying to say a certain kind of shirt is out of bounds? The article is incredibly muddy in its thought process.

I think a lot of people here missing the point of the article... If you have an obvious, 'going-out' shirt, it lessens your credibility that you have a nice wardrobe at home... Basically, one should try and look nice all the time wearing any assortment of your clothes combinations....

There seems to be an inverse relationship between how good clothes look on you and how comfortable they are to wear. In a world without women or job interviews I'd just wear a T-shirt and sweatpants all the time.

you can never go wrong with black socks and sandals.  'the german tourist' never goes out of style.


I prefer sweatpants, backless terrycloth slippers, and a Ted Nugent tank top with cigarette holes in it.

Robo Beat: 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 going out stuff but the funy thing is I have had better luck with ladies when I am at a bar in a blah mood dressed like I dont care. Last time was a few years back my roomate just had to go out and I didnt want to. She bribed me with drinks so I jsut sat at the bar watching a game and this lady next to me struck up a convo. The rest is history

jaylectricity: Kingly Weevil: 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?

Come on, dude...give me some bro-knux.

I get what they are saying- I see hoards of bros walking around the LES on friday nights wearing the same uniform: button up shirt, untucked, sleeves rolled, almost always in blue stripes. I have a much bigger problem with their accessories in the summer: goddamned flipflips.

New York City is farking dirty.  don't wear flipflops to bars.

The thing is- everyone has a uniform. Me and all my lady friends wear tight jeans, black scoop neck tshirts and hoodies.

They might be bros, but everyone has their click. nothing wrong with that. it's just advertising.

I have one suit, and those three occasions are the only times it comes out of the plastic dry cleaners garment cover.  And thankfully I haven't had a job interview in 8 years and don't see one coming anytime soon.

Most American men dress like total slobs.  One reason is the fact that they are so gawdamn fat now that their shirts won't stay tucked in and the other is because nobody has any respect for themselves or those around them....oh, and they are fat too.  Did I mention that?

American men bathe, though. And typically not in cologne. So we have that going for us at least.

[img.fark.net image 593x640]

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

I was just out that way a couple of weeks ago.  I couldn't decide who was douchier, the East Side hipsters of Austin, or the female equivalent of Uggs on the dudes in NYC.  It was culture shock.  People still had the same uniforms from 5 years ago.  Hell, I had a shirt like that 5 years ago.  I caught flack from a sort of friend for not "dressing up".  I said "is there a farkin dress code? No?  Then who farkin cares?"

Also hoodies, how YOU doin?

impaler: Is it just me, or is the entire article nonsensical and contradictory?


No.  It's just you.

see, you should have a closet full of clothes for different occasions - including a tuxedo - but you shouldn't have  going out shirt and your shouldn't wear another shirt for different occasion as a shirt you go out in b/c you shouldn't have a going out shirt, only shirts for every occasion.  So, don't take one of those shirts, that is starched more than likely, and use it as your going out shirt b/c, see, then it's your going out shirt, and you aren't allowed to have one of those.

oh, and don't wear shirts with more than one color unless it's one of your shirts for another occasion and, this can't be stressed enough - do NOT use that shirt for going out.  Especially if it's starched and untucked.

SquiggsIN: Maybe this says more about me than every one else....

I've never read GQ, I have no friends who have ever read GQ, I have no family who has ever read GQ, I've never met anyone that mentioned reading/subscribing to GQ...

Who the hell is buying this magazine in this country?


the guy in the picture in the article. He also reads Maxim, FHM etc. I had a roommate like that. I asked him why he would buy that stuff with the amount of free porn on the internet. This was back in the days of TheHun etc, probably before Skankfree and Youporn.

Anyway, I've been guilty of favoring a type of shirt when I go out, but I grew up in FL on a barrier island so I veer towards a more slacker surfer short sleeved button down over a white T with jeans or shorts depending on the weather. Flips ok in hot weather, too. Yeah NYC is dirty but so what, are most big cities in southeast Asia and that's all you see over there.

There seems to be an inverse relationship between how good clothes look on you and how comfortable they are to wear. In a world without women or job interviews I'd just wear a T-shirt and sweatpants all the time.


I get complemented on my work wardrobe regularly, and I don't wear anything that's not comfortable enough to run in or sleep in. And none of my stuff is expensive.

The article is just saying that a shirt with buttons is not automatically classy. It has to fit you and be appropriate for what you are doing.

I'm an American male (27). I'm not fat, but yeah, I don't have an ounce of respect for any of you farking people.

I have 3 polos and 2 button-up shirts, and they get worn in rotation. Weekends, it's t-shirts and jeans.

That is because your nice close don't fit right.

I had the chance to buy a suit that was made to measure at an extreme discount in a light gaberdine wool. It fit so well I didn't need a belt and felt was like wearing PJs. It made me realize why everyone wore suits in the old days.

Also getting your off the rack clothes fitted by a taylor has a similar effect.

Yaaarp.  I was very disappointed with what greeted me when I returned to the U.S. after several years away. Good lord, what an ugly bunch of slobs (the women, too)! I used to think this was normal?

I'm a pretty casual girl; I'm hoping that grunge comes back so I'll have an excuse to wear flannel again. That said, I suggest that we all take up a new hobby, lose a few pounds, and learn to dress like adults. This country is embarrassing to look at.

If my outfit embarrasses someone, I feel like I'm doing it right.  At work, it's t-shirt and nice jeans because it's a rule.  Outside that, well, just don't dare me to wear the speedo and neon paisley shirt.  You might not like what you see.
