I always see photos of people wearing shirts and polo shirts with the top button done up, but I have never once met one of these people in real life. I wonder who they are? I guess they must be kept in a big hospital together and only let out for photo shoots.

Never do mine up under any circumstances.

I'll undo two on a night out/informal occasion, for work/wearing ties/formal events etc i'll just have the top undone.

Everyone does it here, seems to be a trend these days. Looks stupid if you ask me!

If wearing a tie, yes.

Otherwise, no. I'm not retarded.

only when wearing a tie.

I find it strange that kids in school undo their top button and untuck their shirt then go and put on a casual shirt yet tuck it in and do the top button up :confused:

What's a short sleeved shirt?


The only time I'd ever have the top two done up is with a tie.

No. I sometimes don't do my top button even if I'm wearing a tie. But I tighten my tie just high enough to stop anyone noticing that my top button is undone, so there you go.

I'll probably do up my top button when I want to look extra smart and presentable, like for an interview or something.

How about typing 'short sleeved shirt' into google images to see it for yourself?

I'm still shocked you don't what it is though.

Usually the top one is unbuttoned, but sometimes I'll button it if it looks nicer, which isn't common.

It depends on the shirt, some casual shirts can look good with the top button done up.

I just leave the top button undone and nothing else. I find it uncomfortable with it done up anyway

As said by someone above, it depends on the shirt. If it's a really nice shirt that actually looks better done up, then yea. But some shirts don't even have equally cut collars these days so not one those.

Unless it's too warm then no, and polo shirts god no!
