Sarah Stright-Hartley: Options for "normal" men help make clothing choices easier



Shorts - WEAR khaki shorts - NOT athletic shorts or jean shorts
Ah jean shorts.  It might be a double standard since women wear jean shorts all the time, but jean shorts on guys are a definite fashion mistake.  They look very dated and unappealing.  Instead, look for easy khaki shorts (cargo pocket styles look more casual, ones with side pockets are dressier) or plaid shorts.  These styles can be dressed up or down and will also be appropriate for most outings.  And athletic shorts?  Those are for the gym, not to be worn out on the town.
Sports Shirts - WEAR team t-shirts - NOT jerseys
Is it game day?  That's great, wear your favorite team jersey.  Other than that, if you really want to show your support, wear a t-shirt with your team logo.  But please keep in mind that these types of t-shirts are NOT dressy and shouldn't be worn out on dates or for dinner unless you're wearing them underneath a shirt so that it can't be seen.  
What do you think about these "rules"?  What else have you seen men wear that you don't think they should?

On Wednesday, the House of Representatives voted to authorize Speaker John Boehner to sue President Obama for allegedly overstepping his legal authority with the way he's handled Obamacare. Good call?

Yes. Obama's been overstepping his authority since day one in office. It's time he pay the piper.
No. The allegations are ridiculous and the law suit is a waste of time and tax payer money.
I don't know. I'm not a huge fan of Obama, but the suit seems a little extreme.
