How to face rejection from a girl?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Justin Jun 25, 2013. 25 Replies

I asked a girl, whom I liked for several years, out on a date. She said she was seeing someone else, thus I was rejected. She is someone I often see at our local church every week and at some events.…Continue

" I'm a bit odd when it comes to this but I use Hawaiian and tuck them in but for more ventilation you can leave it un-tucked. "

"As several others have said I would recommend a plain no logo t-shirt. Polo shirts don't really suit me and this is what I tend to wear most of the time. Just make sure it is a good fit and doesn't hang off of you."

"Steve is right.  Linen shirts are very comfortable for summer weather, in my opinion.  They are very breathable, but tend to wrinkle faster than Polo's."

Steve replied to John P's discussion Alternatives to polo shirts for warm weather?
"Linen shirts are an option, as are granddad style shirts for a more casual setting (the lack of collar makes a huge difference in hot weather)."

"Perhaps also a tailored fit rather than a classic fit, given the button-down collar."

"Short sleeve button downs will also work.  Just remember to tuck it in if the hem is not even all the way around."

"You can also do button-down short sleeved shirts, guevaras, maybe some other things. You might browse a store, online or otherwise, for more ideas."

Alternatives to polo shirts for warm weather?

I always wear polo's for warm weather, but I am getting tired of wearing them and being known as the "polo guy." I like wearing solid colored t-shirts and was wondering whether it is a step backwards in terms of maturity to be going out in t-shirts. I was thinking of getting good quality t-shirts without any labels or designs on them to wear for picnics etc. Unless there are other shirts for warm weather to choose from with the exception of polo shirts. I am 25 btw and Chicago weather can get…See More
