That Hurley shirt is ugly as sin. The short sleeve button up is a solid summer/casual look. I have a handful of shirts like that. Honestly you can't really go wrong with solid colors but if you want a patterned look I'd probably go with something a little more subtle.

Ehh...

Tye-dye tees are the only choice of apparel for the sophisticated man.

If u wear it with a tie, then you should re think your life and what it is you want to project. That's just a no go, esp if the shirt has collar buttons.

I dress like that.


Although today I am wearing a guayabera.

But I wear a button-down with rolled up sleeves almost every day.

I do agree that most short sleeve button downs look tacky. I basically only wear guayaberas or other stylish short sleeves. Too plain and you look like a missionary/IT guy. Too loud and you look like a ****ing slob/joke.

I think you only risk the missionary/IT guy look if you tuck the shirt in. Short sleeve button-ups only really work as a casual look so if you wear it untucked with the top button or two undone it will probably look fine.

if you are wearing a short sleeve button down, it must be a solid attractive color (not white, not black) with no stupid details. It can have some patterning or texture but that is about it.

I'm not a hipster faggot or in middle school anymore so there's no excuse for me to wear short sleeve button downs, I don't want to look like a tool.

I'm a guy who wears primarily jeans w/ long sleeve collared shirts with the sleeves rolled up. I actually think that 2nd link that the OP posted is a nice shirt if you're a skinny and/or fit guy. If you're tubby, it's a no go.
