Spend The Getup: T-shirt & Shorts Kind of a Guy 2 May,2012 By Andrew Snavely Often times in summer our priorities shift from dressing well to “Damn, it’s friggin hot out.” No matter, a Primer gent can make even a t-shirt and a pair of shorts look smart. Andrew Snavely Andrew is the founder and editor of Primer. He's a graduate of American University and currently lives in Los Angeles. Read more about Primer on our About page. Casual StyleStyleSummer StyleThe Getup Jake pretty standard, but then, looking around, 90% of guys just can’t seem to get it right. Good post andrew http://www.WorkoutLab.net Brad I second that ^. It seems there is a ton of good advice out there but few actually take it. Good segment as always Andrew! Greg_s I think this absolutely can be done well with an understated T and properly fitting shorts. It never hurts to just take it one step up and swap the T for a polo or really lightweight button down (that is short enough in length to wear untucked). Jessy Love the Keds. Also, great simple summer look, even if I’m not a t-shirt guy. Jordan This is me most every weekends, You can spice it up with your shirt/short color choices and change the watch (timex weekender is great for that), glasses color (black/brown), shoe color (vans are good for this). A great weekend “uniform” that looks very casual but also pretty polished. Daniel Can anyone re-link the belt, or point me towards anything in a similar color, style, and price range? The link Andrew provided seems to be either broken or the belt is out of stock. Thanks! Barry Those deck shoes have to be Sperrys, though. http://www.primermagazine.com Andrew Hey Daniel, Looks like the belt is sold out now. I’ve swapped the link for a similar style from Fossil, though it’s a darker color. Daniel Thanks, Andrew. I was really interested in the lighter tan-brown color. What are your thoughts on this belt from Relic, available at Kohl’s…? http://www.kohls.com/kohlsStore/mens/more_for_men/accessories/beltssuspenders/brown/PRD~1003121/Relic+Sierra+Leather+Belt.jsp Robert Just a word of warning – I have that exact Target T-shirt and the length is like a dress. I’m 5 ft 10, wearing a small, and the shirt comes down to below my rear-end. Like others before me have said, there are a lot of great options that can replace this shirt. I love these “The Getup” posts, and am always happy to see a new one. Please keep up the good work! Brooks These posts are great with suggesting good looks. Just one major complaint with this post….who is spending $100 on shades to wear with a timex that cost 1/3 of that? I would much rather spend $120 on a watch and only have $10 left over for sunglasses! Or skip the cheap looking bracelet and by $24 sunglasses.
