I don’t like wearing a shirt alone but spring is here. How should I go about this?

Dear Anon.,

I agree wholeheartedly with your premise: Wearing a shirt alone is not all that fun. (Not wearing a shirt, on the other hand, is something I highly recommend doing either alone or in the company of a select few.) When you are wearing a shirt, it’s generally more enjoyable to do so in the company of others, particularly family, friends, or—in the case of Josh Peskowitz—teeming throngs of fans and street style photographers. This is because, as New York Times columnist David Brooks points out in his new book The Social Animal: The Hidden Sources of Love, Character, and Achievement, humans have a tendency to find meaning and contentment in their lives in relation to one another. After all, what’s the point of wearing a nice shirt—no matter the season—unless there are others around to appreciate how good you look in it. That’s fashion, baby. So rather than focusing on how to wear a shirt alone, my advice is: Devote your energies toward finding others who will compliment you on your nice shirt. As a side note, choosing the right shirt will make this endeavor much easier.

I hope this answers your question!

    I never wear a shirt alone, that is why all of mine have 4 sleeves.

    There are no stupid questions…

    Seriously? That was a typical douche way of avoiding to answer the question at hand.

    I agree with christopher. If you’re not really going to answer, don’t bother. My opinion, the spring is the perfect time to wear light sweaters, light jackets, and scarves to go with your shirt. They don’t have the bulky look and keep you at just the right temperature.
