  1. I wear long sleeves in summer because it keeps the air conditioning off my arms. Just enough to keep my Northern European thin skin comfortable.

  2. Can't roll your sleeves up if you don't have any

  3. Got a white long sleeve seersucker last year and had more that one person say, "Why, that looks like seersucker". Stealth coolness?

  4. I can't imagine not wearing them.

  5. I'm more into long sleeves now, both for comfort and it's cheaper than reapplying sunblock all day.

    I've even managed to wear a turtleneck skivvy on occasions :)

  6. I live in Texas and always wear long sleeves. Winter or Summer. In Summer they can act as protection from the sun, can help in too cold buildings. And as always, the sleeves can be rolled up.

  7. Short sleeves are now only for tennis or sailing polos and for t-shirts when sanding/scraping old anti-fouling from the hull. Can't put a reef in ss.

  8. I'm one of those who wears long-sleeve shirts year-round. Plus a left-breast pocket (pen), no flap. If needed, i roll the sleeves up.

  9. Long sleeved shirts are far more versatile for Summer wear than short sleeved shirts. Roll the sleeves up through the day when it's warm, then roll them back down when it gets cooler in the evening.

  10. The only short sleeved shirts I own are polo's and an Orvis madras. Long sleeves can also be rolled under so the cuffs don't get caught on things. "There is no such thing as a short sleeved dress shirt".

  11. I stocked up on Brooks Bros. shirts right before they went bad. A dozen and a half of each color - white, blue, yellow, and both blue and red stripes.
    They are not what they used to be, but so nice to have. Wear them year round.
    Polo's for golf only.

    1. With 90 new BB shirts, just think of all the money you saved on sunblock - see May 18 post.

    2. I guess so. But how will I ever wear them all? I bought them on sale after Christmas 6 or 8 years ago. They were only $46. Bourbon and online sales do not mix.

  13. In Kentucky during Summer months, I can’t walk to get the post without being drenched. So humid down here.

  14. Wear long-sleeve and collared shirts if you live anywhere where there is sun. Plus there is nothing wrong with flipping up the collar on your polo shirt to protect your neck if you're in the sun, even if you think you look like an obnoxious preppy from the Eighties. Your body will thank you someday.

  15. I'm with you there, Beresford. My friends and family tease me for my love of turtlenecks and polo collars, but my neck is protected to the max :)

  16. Hi Muffy – is there anyway you could find out what type of khakis the gentleman in the third photo here is wearing? I'm done with these wrinkle-free ll bean pants, they never wear in!
