In life, there are some questions that tell you just about everything you need to know about a person. For example, do you prefer dogs or cats? Tea or coffee? East Coast or West Coast?
When it comes to clubhouse style, there’s only one question on our minds: Do you button your polo up all the way to the tippy-top…or do you leave it open, blowing in that sweet 18th-hole breeze?
As with most seemingly innocuous getting-to-know-you questions, the answer says more than you might think. For those in the top button club, the main priority is cultivating a Look (with a capital L). He probably spends more time than you’d think attending to that perfectly tousled mane. And that sparkling grin. And those clean nail beds! That’s not to say that your top-button-buddy is uptight –- he knows how to have a good time. And he will be sure to capture it on film so that he can expertly filter it, post it to Instagram, and leverage it for his personal brand. What we’re saying is, he’s got foresight, and he’s not afraid to show it.
Those who go through life unbuttoned ascribe to a different set of values. They know that life is too short to walk around with a partially constricted airway, or
to spend those extra 30 seconds buttoning your shirt. They want to be able to cough and laugh and make sudden movements at will. They might have spent months cultivating a nice full tuft of chest hair, and they’ll be darned if they’re going to cover it up now! And if that means they come off a little less, well, buttoned up
while hobnobbing at the clubhouse… they can live with that.
We’re not saying either is right or wrong. We are button-neutral. This merely a buttonalysis. A buttonquiry. A buttonvestigation, if you will.
What we’re saying is: Top button people are cat, coffee, East coast people. Prove us wrong.
