The Getup: July 4th

The Getup: July 4th
It’s hot – a rolled-up long sleeve shirt would not only be overkill, it would be suffocating. Well-dressed, not dressed up.

    Thanks for including the sunscreen. It is strange how few guys wear sunscreen when going to outdoor events. Perhaps the biggest detractor is the smell. Are there any low-fragrance options?

    Would any other colors work for the shorts? I just can’t make myself wear colored pants or shorts other than traditional colors.

      British tan and navy would work, probably olive as well. Try experimenting, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Going with another subtle color like a deep green, pale blue, or pale red are really easy to pull off, especially if you stick to shirting basics, like a blue or white oxford or polo. I understand your hesitancy for not wanting to wear neon colors which seem to be popular currently.

    I would recommend normal sun screen/milk over sprayable sun screen. Sprayable sun screen is quite bad for the skin and it’s not thick enough to really protect against UV radiation.

    Any other shirt recommendations I could wear with this?
