My sleeves were bothering me, so I cut them off and made holders out of the cuffs. Does this look dumb? I'm seriously considering doing this to all my shirts.



No, I don't iron. I know.

It's great for a casual shirt, but if you ever have to wear them to work, you might need a few more formal shirts.

I like button-up cuffs on short sleeved shirts but I, too, don't know how suitable that would be for work. Depends on your work I guess.

I agree with the other posters: it's a cute look but not appropriate for a more formal office environment. Perhaps you could experiement with 3/4 sleeve shirts? Or perhaps some other method of shortening up the sleeves so it still looks professional?

Of course if you work in a business casual environment or somewhere with a lax dress code then the sleeve mod should be just fine. You could make it a smidgen more formal by making sure the folds are really neat and crisp and the little tab thing is also as neat as possible (that might require ironing though). That still wouldn't work in a very dressy/professional environment though.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.
