The Autobiography of Russell
Life from a different perspective
Changing dress style
I've become tempted to start a collection of button-up shirts. Maybe throw
in some t-shirts of some sort, add some subtle style to the shirts, and
leave it unbuttoned occasionally. I'm even a little tempted to wear a tie
on occasion. Oh the horror.

It's ironic because I've gone from button up shirts, to more vintage t-shirts and jeans and look like the love child between a hipster and frat boy.

I'm not even either of those. Most of my clothes are extremely plain and probably look old-fashion as far as styles go. I prefer khakis and plain t-shirts, although I'll wear jeans on occasion (meaning on rotation of not always wearing khakis).

Don't do it man. The ties will kill you.

I doubt I'll have a decent reason to wear a tie to work unless there is an event going on. Beyond that I'll probably stick to just the button-up shirts.

There's one guy at work who seems to like his black with red flames shirt. Another guy who always goes to work wearing khaki pants and a light colored (or white) button-up shirt tucked in. Most people on the developer side are khakis or jeans with t-shirts or some such.

O.o What is there beyond button-up shirts and polo shirts? (Mind you I'm grouping polo shirts with t-shirts here)

I don't MIND wearing ties... but I so avoid doing so unless I have to.

(I so need a tie pin, though.)

Once I actually got a four-in-hand tie working it wasn't so bad. It was the full windsor that was kicking my butt and making me dislike ties. Not that I'd want to wear a tie every day, much less every day to work. Although it does seem a little odd to want to wear a button-up shirt without a tie, but I'll manage, somehow.

I think guys look hot all dressed up.

Mmmm, I can definitely agree with that. :-P

I'm not sure if you've seen the proposed (but not used) outfit for the Christmas party a while back (the shirt is dark gray and shiny). It's the one that got me wanting to wear button-up shirts again.

I can see why. That's totally cute.
