    In Jersey I'd be able to pull of a long sleeve button down in the summer if I was going out at night and I had plenty of awesome sweaters (I love sweaters) and life was good.


    Now I live in South Florida, I haven't worn a jacket or one of the sweaters I've liked in a full calender year (when I moved). So I guess it's time to bite the bullet and adjust everything I wear accordingly since my favorite clothes are all rotting in my closet.


    That being said, I know fuckall about looking good in short sleeves. I have no designer light clothing because a t-shirt has always been a t-shirt to me. But not anymore, since my reportoire is going to be very limited I need to start learning how to wear short sleeves fashionably. So I was wondering if you guys had something good to start my wardrobe, I need all the help I can get

    there's not anything to "looking good" in short sleeves. they are what they are.

    Just rock them with jeans and shoes. TSL tends to favour Purcells and Common Projects for casual wear shoes :dunno:

    if you want to look like 99% of the bro population, please wear your white air force ones that you have to buy every other month bc they get dirty.

    i would recommend just getting some regular chucks (they have a gazillions of styles/colors) or even nike blazers are cool.

    i haven't owned a pair of basketball shoes since middle school, so maybe I either didn't mean "clean whites" or you guys are thinking of something else.


    regardless, i just kind of meant a comfortable white shoe that's low-top...not air force ones or anything like that.

    but that's not really what I'm looking for anyway, I was thinking maybe a brown/ black shoe (not sneaker) that looks good with jeans and can be casual
