You’d think they own stock in them.

(Extra points if it has a golf logo. Bonus extra points if it has a Promise Keepers logo.)

Oh, no! *I* like polo shirts! In fact, I am wearing one now. Does this mean I’m like those men? I wonder what I did with that button-down Oxford?

I think you have to adapt this one for the PNW. Among my contemporaries it was more polar fleece than polo shirts.

Stephanie-I don’t actually know you but I love your blog.I have another idea for you… marriage as respect and love. Respect the men, love the women.. and thousands of books about it.Also, marketing to specific groups.. single teens, single moms, single dads, retired people, youth groups, jr high, unmarried with three kids between the ages of 7 and 14. AH!

Here in England I often wear a polo shirt when not at work. I prefer T-shirts but my wife tells me they need ironing while if you give a polo shirt a good shake as it comes out of the machine it stays crease free. So polo shirts it is.

This is dumb. Eddie Vedder wears polo shirts on stage, does that make him a caucasian evangelical? You're grasping again.

Yeah, great point Billy. Get real. Eddie Vedder hasn't been cool for about 12 yrs.Stephanie is so dead-on with all of these. You probably have a ton of polo shirts, don't you? It sucks to be called out on being a d-bag, doesn't it?

Hey "billy"- yeah anyone who wears a polo shirt is a white evangelical, just like the blog says, Eddie included. As a matter of fact we just had a "one on one" "accountability meeting" over frappuccinos at assbucks to discuss his difficulty giving over and above 10% of his gross income to his church (how else do you expect him to get a new boat?)Pressed down, shaken, overflowing in abundance that ye will not have room for it in your storehouses,Ben

Oh snap! Billy got served!Ben Parsons: I LAUGHED! OUT LOUD! A LOT!!! And I'll do it again.Calvary Chapelites have a thing for Hawaiian shirts. The pastors are mostly ex-addicts and hippies, committed solely to their KJV. Few have gone to seminary. When you notice fewer middle-aged men, wearing Hawaiian shirts, sporting a KJV (especially in California), it means the rapture happened, and you've been left behind. It's the only surefire sign.

Oh, so that’s why my old pastor wore a Hawaiian shirt! :) Didn’t know it was the Calvary Chapel uniform.
(My sister thought he just shut his eyes and grabbed the first shirt he could reach in the closet!)
