    I doubt they'll be cheaper in any case, hit me up if your 40s sold out.

    I just love how it can be smoldering hot out and yet there are many guys wearing jeans + a long sleeve button down shirt (with the sleeves rolled up). Yet the woman they are with will be wearing temperature appropriate shorts, dresses, skirts, and tank tops. About 50% of the women's skin will be free of fabric covering, while 90% of the man's skin will be covered. Guess who looks more comfortable?

    Sure, men can wear a t-shirt instead. But for many this just comes off looking sub-casual. Thus the button down shirt is frequently the only sane choice.

    Imagine you're going to the park or beach and then later to a fairly nice restaurant (one where nobody would wear shorts). You will not have time to change between locales. What could a guy wear that would be appropriate for both locations, yet cool to match the hot day? A woman could wear a casual dress that would fit in fine at both locales without being too hot. There is really no equivalent option for the man.

    Men's fashion has become stymied.

    this is how i planned to dress in the summer back in march, no luck as of yet :embar:

    WHERE TO KOP :fu:

    edit: also, i dont get dvn pant sizing (from what ive seen on lncc, at least)
    same with those doma shorts. the dries seem big for the tagged size and the domas are small for their tagged size. are they meant to be worn higher on the waist or something?

    How do Doc Martens fit? Saw a pair of blue suede brogues that looked pretty sweet on ebay.
