With Summer right around the corner, I’ve noticed a grim change in office attire. And as the weather gets warmer, the sleeves get shorter, and the dry edge of your winterized elbows begin to peak out of the abomination that is your short sleeved button down.
Let’s take a glimpse over the years of who wears short sleeved oxfords:
Dwight K. Schrute, Assistant to the Regional Manager – Dunder Mifflin Scranton, and 17th Century beet farmer.
Milton from Office Space, who got fired 5 years earlier but no one fixed a glitch in payroll that still cuts him a check, and is in love with his stapler.
These are the only two characters I found with ease, which should speak volumes to how pitiful you have to be to show your face in public in one of these bad boys. Even Napoleon Dynamite cleaned it up with a long sleever.
Have you ever seen George Clooney in a short sleeved oxford?
Because they’re disgusting and no respectable man would ever be caught dead with his elbow popping out of something that needs to be dry cleaned. I don’t care how hot it is guys! Roll up those sleeves if you have to. Don’t cut them off and hem them like a 4th grader on picture day.
