    I don’t have the biceps for short sleeves. Rolled long sleeves, including polos, look better on me.

    That said, I do have some older gentlemen (and some not so older gents) in my office who do dress like this in the summer months.
    It's interesting you mention that! For me, I get image of Dwight Schrute with his mustard shirt.

    I personally still prefer the look of a casual shirt with the sleeves rolled up
    I agree totally. I personally do not care for short sleeve button downs of any kind. That's just my preference. However, I think we can all agree that one should not wear a SSBD with a tie. It's an awful look - like a business suit with knee-length trousers. If the situation calls for a tie, then it calls for a traditional OCBD.

    For short sleeve shirt, I prefer a nice polo/golf shirt. Again, personal preference.

    This +1000. I have plenty of short sleeve shirts, but they are all casual cuts for wearing untucked.

    See this has been by go-to for a long while. Just rolling up the sleeves of an OCBD. But it does tend to get a little hot during the summer so I was looking for something lighter. Plus the wife keeps mocking me about always wearing an OCBD so if I can figure out out some good middle ground I thought I why not?

    In those situations, I just take my OCBD off and keep the t-shirt on. But when it's hot and muggy out, but I still wanna be presentable, I would probably consider a well fitting polo shirt.
