A bit of styling advice from Kristopher R: "I don't think people should ever wear shorts and T-shirts. Even if it's hot, that's no excuse. Iron your shirts, men, iron all of your clothes. I'd rather spend money on quality stuff I wear and use every day, such as bags and shoes on my birthday. Then I can buy less expensive shirts, ties and pants whenever."
