I often wear t shirts under polo shirts for the look, though obviously the practical reasons benefit me. Funny story, I actually had to buy these sandals because as I was walking from my car, my flip flops snapped — leaving me shoe-less before I went in the grocery store. An undershirt not only traps moisture preventing it from soaking your outer clothes, it wicks the moisture away from your skin allowing evaporative cooling to take place.

Looks ridiculous to me, but I know this is the Southern style. When we shop, we visualize our future selves. Shopping stimulates our imaginations. The problem is that people often shop visualizing a lifestyle that may not ever exist—that slimmer self, or the one who goes camping, or vacations on glamorous tropical cruises, or attends lavish black-tie events.
