    Check Shirts – My Two Cents

    I pretty much live in check shirts, they are just awesome. I tend to wear them like the guy down there. With the top couple buttons undone and sleeves rolled up to the elbows.

Being a 21st Century man, later in the day I took to the internet and used this little website called google (don’t know if you’ve ever heard of it) to find out…
