Craziness in the Cubes: Undershirt Etiquette
Ok, this is more of a pet peeve of mine than it is a crazy story. A conversation that every man has had at some point not only with his buddies, but with himself is “Am I going to wear a shirt under my button down?”
Now, I must admit that I am a firm never when it comes to an undershirt. I think that this is what separates the men from the boys. This is for three reasons:
1. Comfort – no denying an undershirt is more uncomfortable than just your button down
2. Chest Lettuce – need to let it fly, maybe even have a little poking out
3. Tough look – can’t have the short sleeve visible through the arms of your button down, looks weird, but that’s just my opinion
And this is coming from a big time, all-star level sweater. I sweat even if the temperature goes up a little. To quote the great Ashley Schaeffer (BMW), “turn the thermostat up to a sultry 82 degrees.” It still doesn’t matter, no undershirt until the day I die.
But that isn’t even my major gripe.
What I’ve noticed recently in the cubes, which I didn’t even know existed, is DIFFERENT COLORED UNDERSHIRTS.
These aren’t crazy neon or anything, but I’ve seen black and gray. This is just preposterous! If you are team undershirt, that is one thing. You’re wrong, but I can at least see where you’re coming from. Non-white undershirt guy is a guy that can’t be trusted. This is a man that has some secrets up his sleeves (ha), a man with some skeletons in his closet. Off color undershirt guy is a guy that I am blown away still exists this far into evolution.
More to come…
