When you've got that nice look with the shirt and shorts going, why bother? Get yourself a breezy linen shirt to throw on top, sleeves rolled up haphazardly, maybe one button fastened.
Or if you really want to do a jacket try an inherently casual one like an Epaulet Doyle in linen or sashiko. With the sleeves rolled.

Yeah, seems forced.
Agree. The whole thing is a contrived fallacy of logic.
Cold enough to need a jacket? - Cold enough for grown men strides.
Hot enough to eschew your dignity and wear shorts*? - Hot enough that you don’t need a jacket!

*Beach, pool, gym, sports, tropical holidays get a pass of course!

There are plenty of people who want to keep their torso/neck/arms warmer while wearing shorts. Wearing a sportcoat might not be the best way to do it, but it's hardly a logical fallacy

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
