  1. I would say one button is fine for most men in casual, non-work situations where you’re not trying to impress anyone. Two is pushing it anywhere other than a beach, public park, etc. on a hot summer’s day. And never far enough down that there’s chest hair poking out!

  2. In most cases I’d go buttoned up all the way (not the collar button, of course, unless you’re wearing a tie), but there are some casual situations where unbuttoning is okay:

  3. Just 1 button! You can undo the next button when you get home.

    At the end of the day, if you are sweating like a faucet in your shirts, you’re probably not going to want to wear them again right? They’re going to get washed anyways, so don’t worry too much.

    You can always change your clothes when you get home too.
