Default Clothes Shopping - Ugh

Apparently I must e the pickiest clothes shopper in the world because I can never find what I am looking for. Examples:

Full zipper sweater or sweatshirt without a hood or collar. Essentially a crew neck sweatshirt with full zipper. (found a wool sweater at Orvis that works, but not very casual)
Simple flat front navy blue cotton shorts that do not go three inches beyond my knee cap. (did find a pair finally from Nautica)
Plain light blue cotton short sleeve polo shirt. Have not found one yet. They all seem to have the company logo on the left chest or are aqua seafoam green blue jade mist color.
Light Spring/Fall cotton jacket full zip with a lay flat collar and open cuffs and waist (not elastic). Have not found one yet. Mock collars are the rage or 1/4 zip or pullover.

The trend you are seeing is I like simple, non-logo being shoved in your face, natural fabric, normal fitting and normal colored clothes. I search online and in stores and come up empty other than the rare one in a hundred unicorn sighting instances.

You need to quit spending so much hanging around women.

When I hang around women, I always seem to spend a lot. Way it works I guess.

I prefer my appletinis, but will enjoy a cosmo if presented with one.

I do not enjoy clothes shopping. I would like nothing more than to look for as short a time as possible, find what I want, pay for it and go home. I just can't bring myself to dress like a millenial, rapper or Salt Lifer.

Khaki cargo shorts and any one of the 100’s of the fishing shirts or performance shirts on our site. Match with a fishing hat and pair of Olu Kai sandals and sunglasses. Done. https://www.offshoreapparel.com/

MONTAUK TACKLE - LIGHT WEIGHT PERFORMANCE (LS) - NAPEAQUE BLUE

I didn’t understand most of your middle paragraph. What’s a mock collar? I think you are too picky. Or hang around women too much.

I also cannot stand logos- I have the answer for polos and maybe more - and this is all I wear. All Cotton AND 3 button! And any color you want, and they last forever.

Try this - they always have 30 or 40 % off offers.

Yes ! They also have the no logo shirts - and I get my dress shirts there; but if you want a hi-end dressy look all cotton polo with 3 buttons - Lands end is the only place I have seen them.

i could spend way more $$ in there than I do. Check them out if you haven’t .
