@hchavers@werehatrack now you know how we women feel all the time! We either get no pockets, a fake flap over a non-existent pocket, ora pocket you might keep a housekey in but it’ll probably fall out.
It’s difficult for me to purchase shirts online. I really need to try them on. Medium or large? Depends on the shirt. Also, the length… many are way to short on me, I have a longer torso. Don’t get me started on pants. Many have about 4 inches of extra fabric above the waste. They go up to my ribcage. I wear pants like that people will be callin me Mr. Highpants. I suppose that the high pants go well with the short shirts.
What with my company having an “open house” on Friday the 13th where they are enticing us to return to work in person, I may finally have a need for some work shirts.
@Berndude How many examples do you want? Cruise the Macy’s site. There are loads of logo-free pocketless polos that go as high as $98.50, and are not all that remarkably different from these in fact. Anybody can put a high price tag on a crapola product to impress the gullible. Back when I lived in Miami, I knew of a place where I could buy fancy-looking watches in spiffy presentation cases for under $5 each, and they had gold-leaf embossed price tags sticking up that said absurd things like $750. The irony was that many of the imitation-Rolex ones were actually more shock-resistant and mechanically reliable than the expensive ripoffs they imitated. And these $8 shirts probably fit some people better, and last longer than some of the over-$75 fashionable-brand shirts.
@bass1193 Can something truly be characterized as “casual” when it is basically a uniform explicitly defined as required by an Official Dress Code? I say that in an office environment, the answer automatically becomes “No.” It’s only casual when you have reasonable freedom to choose - or avoid - it. (I knew someone whose version of Casual Friday Wear ran to tuxedo shirts with a kilt in his clan’s tartan…)
