No Sleeveless T-Shirts

This is the fashion advice of the day. Please, no sleeveless t-shirts. Why is that the men with the flabby, undeveloped arms and saggy armpits always opt for this look? Usually coupled with those horrible shiny nylon shorts slashed drastically up the side to reveal their equally unattractive upper thighs and buttocks. Just because you are willing to show it doesn't make it good.

And the men with the great arms always wear tight t-shirts with sleeves, which somehow is always sexier.

The current fashion magazines are showing these t-shirts with exaggerated arm holes. Do not be lead astray. Just because it's in a magazine does not mean that it will look good on you or make your more desirable.

The goal of fashion is to make you look good. Not worse. As Coco Chanel said, "Elegance is the ability to say no."

One of my friends asked me to put more stuff in the blog about what I am doing. I am currently reading a great English language paper/magazine from Berlin called the Exberliner. Berlin seems to be far more happening that anywhere else I know. I love that there is a bar called the SilverFuture that has a sign on the door: "You are Leaving the Hetero Normativ Sector" in English. We must all go there.

  1. Perhaps one of the pivotal moments in my awareness about the sleeveless tee or tank top came in Provincetown at a comedy show. The comedian was scanning the audience and focused on a young man with a slight build wearing a "muscle tank". From the stage he questioned the young buck "Is that a muscle shirt you're wearning"... the young man replied "Yes!" The comedian asked "Why?"
