Coming Undone: The Unbuttoned Shirt

During the summer months when the mercury rises, those of us who wear a shirt and tie for work or in our daily life have been known to suffer.

Dispatching the tie is, of course, the first step you can take to cool down. But what of undoing shirt buttons?

My own personal preference is to undo just the top button. I find this more than sufficient in the heat of a British summer. We are not, after all, going to experience too severe extremes of temperature.

Besides, I find that more than one button gives off a faintly ‘gigolo-esque’ impression, so unless that’s the look you are going for, I’d steer clear of showing too much.
