Spring is in the air and summer will soon arrive, which means it’s time to pull out the short sleeve shirt. Growing up in the islands this was a staple but living now in nippy environments, I can only don these bad boys when it warms up.
From ever since I can remember having to wear a shirt, its sleeve was short. This memory, of course, would be of my primary school days. Back then, my little frame was adorned with a dark gray Cuban collar shirt and brown khaki shorts. Sadly, gone are those childhood days. However, thankfully, nowadays I can embrace a bit more colour. Now that it’s warming up, my short sleeve shirt game is about to go bananas. From plain to bold prints (which are the rave and in style), camp (or Cuban) collars to tunics, tucked to untucked, fitted to oversized (yeah you get it), I am embracing the shirt that dominated my prepubescent years.
Caveat: The bad thing about short sleeve shirts is they don’t keep you warm, when the temps drop, grab your coat and acclimate.
On a recent stop in Brooklyn, mi hermano, Don Marco Vazquez snapped a preview of my Springtime shirting situation.
