First Button in the Shirt

Why do some men undo their first few buttons? I have had long arguments with friends who do this. Very few blame the Indian heat. Many say that it is stylish or sexy. They say it is sexy. Can you believe it? They are making shirt upper buttons the low-hip equalant of men.

Which girl, in her right mind, would want to look at an ugly neandrathal with his first few buttons undone. I had a friend (nicknamed : Kaatu Panni - Wild Pig) who consistently undid his shirt buttons wheneverer a girl walked in the vicinity. KP used his hand to hold the collar of his shirt behind his neck, lifted the shirt up and dropped it down. In this process, some parts of his unwashed, dirty, smelly chest became visible. Causing men near him to fall dead (thereby eliminating competition). He believed it turned on women. When I told him that this sort of poor dressing is bad, he confronted me like a jungle rhinocerous and said "dei avalukku mattum *athu* illaya" (What ..don't you think women do have *it* in them? ). I never understood him.

Maybe its me who is living under a cave.I seriously want to know? Even in a beastial way does this sort of ape behavior turn on women? Do they, upon seeing the bare dirty chest, develop the urge to throw away their clothes and jump into the hay with this guy?

And then there are those who do it to imitate stupid bollywood/kodambakkam movie actors. It is style it seems. Think of the poor stupid tailors who are adding 2 extra buttons to keep the collar tips attached to the shirt. How stupid are they?

It's the whole Rajkiran effect. Have you ever seen this song where Rajkiran and Sangeetha are in bed and Sangeetha affectionately "koadhi uttufied" the forest on Rajkiran's chest (for all you non-Tams here, think "running her hand through his hair", except that it is not the scalp here, but the chest), while singing a love ballad? It made me puke once while watching "Superhit Potti" on DD2 (?) while eating dinner. Apparently, in India, "Nenjula mudi" (chest hair) = Macho Man-liness! But to the west, it just shouts "Randy Savage".

anantha said...

What I mean is, now everyone thinks, after seeing the above mentioned scene, that if Rajkiran can get Sangeetha into bed with him, so can he get his woman of choice for a romp in the sack!

Hey do not curse out the two buttons that keep the collar to the shirt.

I have found that over a period of time, the collars tend to get crushed every which way and the only way (besides spending 10 minutes ironing the shirt) to keep the collars straight is to buy shirts that have the collars attached to the shirt.

correction: "unwashed, dirty, smelly, hairy chest" :P

eeewwwwww

Unless the guy has b***s and displays some cleavage by unbuttoning his shirt partially, trying to attract ppl of the same sex, there is no reason to use the word 'sexy'.

I suddenly feel like a pregnant woman. As Anti says, I want to throw up on so many ppl - your friend KP, Raj Kiran, Satya Raj, his ugly son, Manzur Ali Khan, Naepolean...Ah, I think I need one full trimester:)

anantha said...

chey.. ever since I read this, I have this song looping through my brain - Azhagana Manjapura! The same song featuring Raj Kiran and Sangeetha! GOD..SAVE ME!

Hawkeye said...

anantha,

i know. u mustve heard prabu mention that song as the puke'iest song of all time.

to me that was the depth a woman can plumb to. To do that with rajkiran even for money, fame or whatever should come under violation of human rights. what some people do for money.

Hawkeye said...

ofcourse kajol married ajay devgan. i mean women do have suicidal instincts.

Hawkeye said...

Karthik,

i didnt critisize those buttons..only the tailors who stitch that when people with opposite insticts are roaming around.

i agree the button is usefule.

Hawkeye said...

cm,

please refer to the rajkiran discussion... then u'll know what 'ewww' is.

I said...

It is sexy of course when women undo the first button on their shirt.

the idiots who unbutton their top button should try the same style with their pants too.

Babs said...

On the same note what makes us think that driving around a car with doosh doosh pioneer system (amp, 15 inch metal sub, rear speakers, tweeters and the whole lot) makes women go Woooooo, he's kewwlllll.....

Guys with low IQ (sorry for discrminating here) jus wanna believe it does, or may be some get turned ON u never know :-D (like pole attracts here)

Ekta said...

ohh gawdd!!
Its yukkkkyyy!
Turn on???...its a complete turn off!!!
DIsgusting to say the least!

The Inquisitive Akka said...

The metrosexual male with 2 missing buttons is slightly more bearable than the non-metro alpha male I guess :)
What is it with men and buttons?????

tilotamma said...

Yeah - I saw that from you but I had not blocked comments or anything. Will be very happy to see your significant other's comments.

If she has the time please ask her to visit again...

Egad!
"thereby eliminating competition" well may be that was the reason. Unless he was trying to freak girls out of their minds.

sunshine said...

T-shirts rule.. no buttons! except when guys try to wear one thats 2 sizes too small..

Hawkeye said...

i never understood the car thing. if u really loved the music u wud shut the window and cut out the outside noise.

Hawkeye said...

Hawkeye said...

M,

Hawkeye said...

t shirt 2 sizes too small will look good if the weight from the ponch is transferred to the arms
