    It's funny you should ask. There are basically five schools of thought...

    BARNEY’S MAIL SACK

    From time to time, I like to dip my hand into my mail sack and respond to a devoted reader. This week, I’ve chosen an email that addresses two areas of growing global concern: the environment and fashion.

    Dear Barney,

    I recently suited up with my best friend in hopes of being as awesome as you, but when we suited up, it was ninety-eight degrees outside and everyone just thought we were crazy. Do you suit up in warm weather, and if so, how do you stay cool?

    Tim

    Timothy, you’ve touched upon a heated issue: Global Warming. Some members of the “scientific community” would have you believe that human activity is causing global temperatures to increase at a catastrophic and unnatural rate. “Wait, scientists, let me get this straight: You’re telling me it’s gonna be like summer all year round? Oh no! Panic! Let’s all go out and buy pukey hybrid cars and only take showers once a week!” Please.

    Curiously, while much of the “research” has focused on promoting scare tactics like “melting ice caps” and “irreversible drought,” few have discussed how a “global warming” would affect people who don’t live in impoverished nations or on ice caps. Your Uncle Barney’s here to talk about what rising temperatures would mean for fashion.

    One very welcome outcome would be a decrease in aggregate clothing for the female population. Two thumbs up. But would today’s exceptionally-clad gentlemen have to trade in their fine woolen three-buttons for a neon tank top, denim shorts and flip-flops? Would an entire nation of men suddenly dress like Orlando? No. That would be irresponsible, which is why we must make changes today to protect the fashion environment for our future generations.

    Here are five tips on how you can suit up while keeping your temperatures down.

    1. SLEEVELESS APRON SHIRT: As it’s rarely acceptable to take off your jacket (what are you, a waiter?), the sleeveless apron shirt is a Stinson summer staple. Giving the appearance of a fully tailored and collared dress shirt, its sleeveless and backless design affords optimum breeze with minimum fabric, cooling your skin without compromising your couture dignity.
    2. CROTCH VENT*: While conventional wisdom claims that heat escapes from the head and hands, if you’re anything like your Uncle Barney, there is one area of the body that runs a little hotter than the rest. A strategic hole placed in the crotch can allow for optimum trade winds both north and south of your equator. Tactical placement of a small taxi fan can maximize your expected draft. NOTE: Sudden movements on tighter-fitting pants can lead to unexpected junk exposure.
    3. DESK PANTS: If you work at a desk job, simply take off your pants. CAUTION: When rocking the top-half-business-bottom-half-party look, remember to reapply your pants before running off to an important meeting.
    4. MESH SUIT: A dangerous but potentially life-changing alternative, the mesh suit cannot be approached haphazardly. It must contain the darkest and smallest diameter mesh fabric possible lest you risk looking like you’re late for a 1980s high school football or rock band practice. Tailored properly, the mesh suit resembles a classic pinstripe while stealthily providing the comfort of a screen-door breeze. Added bonus: The pants provide an exciting, albeit risky alternative to your strip club ensemble. Added added bonus: No more pesky tan lines.
    5. RELOCATE TO ALASKA: It’s cold there. I think there might be penguins. And penguins are the original suit-wearers. If anything can survive a global warming, it’s those little guys.
    * Alterations to existing suits should only be performed on your last-ditch, “laundry day” garments…the ones hanging in the back of your suit humidor.

    yup.

    Short sleeves are for t-shirts, and only tucked in under a long sleever or sweatshirt, and then only when it's cold and you don't want the breeze rolling up from your waste and making your nips hard.

    Sorry. That was probably too descriptive.

    I think as long as you're not wearing a tie and slacks, and your shirt has some definite style to it, short sleeve button ups are a valid choice.

    The struggle is to not look like you're part of the mafia or a sugarcane plantation.

    This thread was meant in jest. I saw someone wearing a short sleeved shirt with a bright pink tie and I started laughing to myself. I had to exclaim my love for those shirts somewhere! Is there any better place than here?

    Yes.

    The counting thread. You could have easily said something to the effect of "The person must have paid $15.99 for that shirt" - and you would have the 1599 post! It would have been so sweeeeeet.

    You placed your eyes on a beautiful sight. If you would have had a camera at that time it would have been fricking amazing.

    True that. Wearing one to your cubicle should be off limits.

    I try not to wear them too much, I have a couple I wear in the summer, they're the most whitewashed yuppie short sleeve button downs that I got from Abercrombie, and they still make me look like Pauli from the Sopranos.

    Some rough news for you Bellisimo. Your girlfiend is checking out the guy in the short sleeved dress shirt that just walked by.

    Sorry man. It happens.

    She was going to be nothing but trouble anyway.
