The Short Sleeved Shirt is Still a Polarizing Piece

by Accidental Bear

I have trouble with shirts with collars in general. I have a serious complex about looking like a preppy, some sort of mid-life crisis of sorts. Anytime I  have a button on and  look in the mirror, I see preppy, even if my shirt were to have skull and cross bone buttons. Sounds like a personal problem , huh? But I find my way around this if the shirt is fitted well or too small. I’ll go for a tad to small over baggy any day. Most shirts I find while thrifting are tiny, so I usually don’t have a choice. I am tragically hip.

The short sleeved shirt is still a polarizing piece. Some hate it, some love it. Us? We’re in between. Like all things menswear, it’s the way you do it that defines whether it’ll look good or not. It’s fair to say that as long as you steer clear of an awkward and puffy sleeve, you should be fine. (Opening Ceremony)

Opening Ceremony men’s collection for Spring/Summer 2011

by Accidental Bear

Not quite sure I feel about these looks, I am left feel nostalgic. These clothes bring back  bad memories of being a poor white kid growing up in Upstate NY with excruciating awkward fashion sense which consisted mostly of hand me downs. This collection could work wonders on the runway. If I were the designer I would insist my models exaggerate awkward shyness, stare at the floor and stand pigeon toed at the end of runway pose. Celebrate the geek.
